Early Reviews of Griffon @ Busch Gardens Europe


Griffon Roller Coaster Water SplashGriffon Getting Some Early Props from Coaster Enthusiasts
Reviews are starting to surface as Griffon, Busch Gardens Europe’s new dive coaster, is now officially open. Over at ThemeParkCritic, it’s averaging an 8.4 with 7 reviews. As expected, the reviews are positive and range from 7’s to 10’s. Hopefully, I’ll get to experience Griffon for myself soon.

The reviewers report that the outside 2 seats, on either side of the 10 seat rows are excellent. Since the trains are floorless, the outside seats are isolated with no track above or below. The airtime bunny hop and water section are getting some praise as well.

Founder of CoasterCritic.com. My favorite coasters are B&M hypers and gigas. I'm also a huge fan of terrain roller coasters.

  4. I recently returned from Busch Gardens Europe, and rode thier new centerpice the new B+M floorless dive machine the GRiFFON! It is a great coaster.After leaving the beautifully French themed stationhouse, it clims 205' on what has to be one the the steepest and fasted lift hills I've ever be on. Once the train reach the pinnacle of ride , riders are then suspended for 5 seconds before being dropped 90 degress straight down! The coaster soars under the crossover brides at speeds over 70 MPH and into smooths immelmen which then takes riders back across the park toward the Rhine River. The coaster then plummets 90 degrees again straight toward the water. This second drop is 130ft! It then goes into its second Immelmann inversion in front the Loch Ness Monster statonhouse and heads back toward the station, but not before spalshing down through the LeMans pond (to the delight of many children) before making its way home. Smooth, fast, and very exciting. A great coaster!

  5. Nice review anonymous! I can't wait to get down there and ride it for myself.
