Skyline Attractions Sells First Skywarp Ride

Skyline Attractions revealed today that the three-year-old company has sold its first Skywarp ride model, which is scheduled to open at an undisclosed park in the summer of 2018.

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.

    I am going to go out on a limb, but I think since Six Flags Great America may be removing V2,they will this in the spot of it.It also fits the record breaking addition title.It probably won’t happen though.

    I’m 75% sure this will go to a Six Flags park because they were rumored to be working with them. I could see this going to La Ronde. Keep in mind, Six Flags will probably call these coasters. With that logic I’d say that lowers the chances of other good candidates SFGAm and SFGAdv getting it as one got a coaster in 2016 an the other this past season (both Joker clones). However, I could see them adding this to La Ronde and calling it a new coaster for their lineup.

    Probably.But Six Flags called the super loop a coaster, if and that was true, then SFNE world have gotten coasters 3 years in a row.That could possibly happen, though La Ronde seems like a good place for it.
