And there's the Skywarp. I was wondering if the rumor was wrong watching the announcement video and then it appeared at the last park, SFDK.

I would have thought this would have been added to a park without a Larson Super Loop, but I don't think SFDK could have fit much else where this is located. You can tell from the video how shoehorned it is in there between Superman and the Go Karts.

This looks like a great addition and it was totally unexpected. The park barely teased.

This surprised me. This is probably the last park that I would have thought would be getting a sky warp. Looks fun!

I prefer to mate with donkeys over humans!

I have REALLY got to get myself up to this park before long! Hopefully late next year, when I'd like to plan to visit my brother in LA/hit up West Coast Bash/AND take a Bro Road Trip up the coast to CGA and SFDK! :b

Pretty much solely because no one has seen a Skywarp previously in an amusement park. That's my guess.

I personally think this is going to be a great ride! I'm sure other parks will be getting these in the years ahead. They're affordable and don't take up a lot of space.

I'm not really too excited by the Skywarp concept, but I'm also not hating on SFGAm's super loop - I'm actually really happy about it.

This just doesn't look like my cup of tea but I'd be willing to try it if I ever make it out to SFDK. It looks like fun but it's not the most exciting thing to me. NOW, that wing coaster super loop concept o the other hand!! :lover:

It's great to see that people like the announcement because I thought there wouldn't be much support behind it, especially at SFDK.

I really expected one of these this year, but I NEVER thought they would place one of these in a park with a Superloop already, EVER. I had figured that these would replace the Super loops completely as new additions and the other parks would just be SOL. :lol:

My reaction to this ride...

:roll: :elissa:

I wonder how bad the Dare Devil Chaos Coaster's ridership will suffer with this addition to the park.
Tigga, please!
