Introducing Skywarp Orbit
Skyline Attractions has introduced the Skywarp Orbit. This is the latest addition to the galaxy of Skywarp attractions, which include the successful Skywarp Classic and Skywarp Horizon.
“Skywarp Orbit was developed as an attraction along the same lines as the rest of the Skywarp coasters,” said Chris Gray, Partner and Vice President, “big thrill, visually impacting and most of all, fun. The small overall size lends well to fitting into tight spaces and budgets. From family-owned properties to theme parks we continue to offer a great coaster experience for a small price and small footprint.”
The concept builds upon the success of Skywarp Horizon, which opened at Sea World San Diego in May 2019 and has been extremely popular with park-goers of all ages. The California installation featured an updated track design that significantly minimised ride noise and improved ride quality. Skywarp Orbit features elements that ride lovers crave including negative g’s on the airtime hill and a cutback inversion in its track length of 221 feet (61m). It carries 28 riders simultaneously seated in two 14-seat trains. Its small footprint, 71 feet by 51 feet (22m x 16m), also allows the ride to fit in many places traditional coasters cannot. In addition, the structure height, 30 feet (9 m), lends the ride to being used indoors, allowing parks to activate buildings on property.
