Skyline Attractions Sells First Skywarp Ride
The company formally announced the sale on its website. Skyline describes the Skywarp ride experience as:
This exciting experience offers 32 passengers a unique journey as they board the competing ride vehicles. The train begins rocking back and forth, building up to full speed before completing several thrilling forward and reverse rotations through the twin Immelmann inversions.
While this technically won’t count as a roller coaster, it will no doubt offer a park an impressive visible spectacle for guests to both watch and ride.
The company first announced the Skywarp model at last year’s IAAPA convention. And the company will announce the buyer of the Skywarp model at the upcoming IAAPA convention in November.
“Skywarp has everything that operators of all sizes desire: big impact, big thrills, big visibility and big capacity with a small footprint and a small price,” said Evan Souliere, founding partner of Skyline Attractions.

One of the selling points of the ride is its ultra compact footprint, measuring 120 feet by 30 feet. And at a height of 60 feet, it’s even feasible for an indoor installation.
“The flexibility of Skywarp, combined with the excitement it delivers to guests, makes it a great addition to any park. We are thrilled to be placing the first of what we believe will be many Skywarp attractions,” commented Chris Gray, vice president at Skyline Attractions.
