World’s First Skywarp Opens At Six Flags Discovery Kingdom
Skywarp, the latest brand new attraction created by Skyline Attractions, LLC is now open at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom in Vallejo. The attraction moved from initial concept and design to the opening of this prototype in just 18 months, showing the dedication and ability of the incredible team at Skyline.
This exciting experience offers 32 passengers a unique journey as they board the competing ride vehicles. The train rocks back and forth, building up to full speed before completing several thrilling forward and reverse rotations through the twin Immelmann inversions. The two trains duel one another and riders see the fear and fun in the faces of other riders.
Jeff Pike, President and founding partner of Skyline attractions, said “We strongly believed in this concept from the beginning. It was wonderful to have a partner like Six Flags who believed in that vision as well and helped us achieve it in such a short turnaround. We couldn’t have made this happen this quickly without that strong partnership.”
The Skywarp is different from any other ride because it utilizes one train with two sets of passenger vehicles. Riders love it because the ride system appears to be two trains dueling, but the maintenance teams appreciate the fact that it is one ride with one drive system.
Adam Sandy, Chief Business Development Officer at Ride Entertainment, said “We have had a long relationship with Six Flags spanning more than a decade. We are incredibly honored that they have trusted us as their partner in placing yet another prototype attraction at a Six Flags property, and we are thrilled that first riders are having as much fun as they are. Proving that Six Flags’ vision is, yet again, on the nose.”
