Someone should ask RCDB why Tidal Twister isn't on there, but HQCC is.
I did, and Duane said to me that he doesn't want to presume that the ride works the same as SFDK's Skywarp, so he's waiting until he sees Skyline at a conference in a month's time until he decides whether or not to put it on the database. That's what he said to me when I contacted him, anyway.

None of the skywarp derivatives coast at all. Each set of coaches is connected by a series of skeleton chassis to maintain distance and there are tire drives in each station. Either one or both tire drives are engaged at any given moment.

No, because a powered coaster has a train, not a continuous loop, they speed up as they go downhill. This is more akin to a Music Express flat ride. One continuous train.

One can count coasters however they want. I personally won't be counting these skywarps due to the powered aspect, but some people might want to because of how much they resemble a true roller coaster, which is understandable. Ultimately, it's your own coaster count - you can tailor your own rules however you want.

Fair enough; I will personally be counting these Skywarps because RCDB has Harley Quinn on the database and because the system behind these looks more like that of a coaster than that of a super loop. To me, it's kind of like the difference between a half-pipe and a Disk'O.
