I certainly get where you're coming for, but combined speed is how head-on collisions are measured. When passing the other train it'll give the illusion of 70mph, which is not a bad marketing pitch and kinda puts this in a different perspective (for me at least)

Not saying I don't see the gripe, just saying it isn't completely outlandish.

In the end, it doesn't matter exactly which park the ride ended up in, because Skyline sold their first major attraction. Congrats to them, can't wait to see it built.

I think the SkyWarp looks like a lot of fun and I'm excited to give it a try. It's nice to see SF putting another world's first ride at SFDK. The park got the first Sky Rocket II back in 2012 and now they are getting the first SkyWarp. I have to say that SF has done a great job with the additions at this park over the last 5-6 years and has really turned it into the premier park in NorCal. With the big plans that CF has in store for CGA, hopefully we'll continue to see big additions to SFDK.

On my last trip here, I told myself I don't feel like coming back. Even without riding V2, I didn't really feel any push to come back and I don't really know why. However, now I think I'm going to have to come back :lmao:

Definitely NOT where I would've envisioned a ride going. Clever use of space! Looks like the queue for Superman will need some adjusting, along with the big logo on the pathway.

There is no such thing as a donkey punch.

My exact thoughts, especially if they are adding "coaster" onto everything. We already have a looper, V2, Superman, and Cobra for really short, forward & backward coaster experiences. Looks like a fun addition but between my two home parks in the Bay I'm going with Cedar Fair, as Trailblazer & Hangtime at Knotts looks awesome.

Edit: I meant Boomerang instead of Cobra

Not a fan of calling it a "coaster"... but the ride looks pretty crazy and a lot of fun! It's very unique too, and I think it'll be better than some expect.
I LOVE CLASSIC WOODEN COASTERS AND NOSTALGIA.
I AM STRONGLY AGAINST NEUTERING WOODEN COASTERS

So SFDK will have not one, but TWO rides mismarketed as coasters. Is that a record?

In spite of all the misleading marketing, I do like this addition. While it is not nearly as exciting as CGA's, this still looks like a very fun ride nonetheless. It has also been great for a park on the smaller side to see so many fun new rides in a fairly short amount of time. I love what both NorCal parks are doing.
