They were supposed to have the media event last week but it was canceled, again. Apparently there was also a 2 week hiatus in testing for reasons unknown recently.
Sorry to bump the thread, but in answer to your question, I haven't heard about any major technical problems.I've not really heard much about this ride, does it operate normally on a daily basis without much downtime now?
OH, that's very sad, but thank you for the review!I just came back from a California trip last week and had the chance to ride this. It took a couple of attempts as it broke down on several occasions before we could ride. They were only loading one side which doubled the wait.
In short, the ride really sucks. It starts ride from the loading. If you load at one of the ends of the train like we did it feels like you're stepping off of a hamster wheel into the ride vehicle. The ramp is super steep at the ends which means you really have to watch your balance. The ride itself is quite rough which is a major concern given how long it has been open. It never goes fast enough to be exhilarating, and it is simply a non-stop barrage of positive Gs which I really dislike. It's one of the worst amusement park experiences I've had in quite a while.
Taking its place in the Hall of Shame alongside such giants as the Sansei Yusoki Twist Coaster and the Doppelmayr Mountain Glider.Well... The Skywarp may go down as one of the worst and most poorly executed ride models ever.
