Skywarp Orbit offers riders negative g’s on the airtime hill and a cutback inversion.
The ride’s small footprint allows the ride to fit in many places traditional coasters and other large attractions cannot.
Additionally, the relatively low height makes the ride an excellent candidate for indoor installation.
The concept builds upon the success of Skywarp Horizon, which opened at Sea World San Diego in May 2019. That model featured an updated track design that significantly minimized ride noise and improved ride quality.
The first Skywarp model — Harley Quinn Crazy Coaster — opened at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom in 2018.
“Skywarp Orbit was developed as an attraction along the same lines as the rest of the Skywarp coasters: big thrill, visually impacting and most of all, fun. The small overall size lends well to fitting into tight spaces and budgets,” said Chris Gray, Partner and Vice President.
“From family-owned properties to theme parks we continue to offer a great coaster experience for a small price and small footprint.”
The Skywarp Orbit concept will be showcased at the upcoming IAAPA Attractions Expo in Orlando (Coaster101 will be in attendance providing coverage!).
