    Sorry to create my third thread of the day today, but according to the San Diego Union Tribune, SeaWorld San Diego has filed for planning permission to build yet another roller coaster in 2019, just one year after Electric Eel. According to the permit, the ride will stand at 22ft tall and will occupy an area of roughly 1.2 acres. Now that implied kiddie coaster to me initially, and the blueprint certainly implies that at first glance with a simple figure 8 layout. It personally reminded me of an SBF Visa Group kiddie coaster, like Junior Red Force at Ferrari Land:

    However, the stats and layout given to the council apparently match up with the stats and layout given on Skyline Attractions' website for the Skywarp Horizon (http://www.rideentertainment.com/flat-rides/skywarp/ (It's halfway down the page.))

    Interesting... we'll have to keep an eye on this one.
    P.S. Here's the San Diego Union Tribune link: https://t.co/4fJwekIygY Also, sorry if I'm making too many threads today. It's just that there have been so many exciting rumours come out!

    There is already a thread for this, but for whatever reason it is locked. So...

    I'm not too sure @ATI, but I think I might have made mine first. Don't quote me on that, though.

    So these Skywarps definitely count as creds, then?

    Technically, they're in as grey of a grey area as you can get. They're certainly more of a coaster than a Larson loop, but I don't think they actually coast. In this moment, I'm leaning more towards counting it though.

    Ah OK. Sorry to keep asking questions, but how come these are on RCDB, yet the super loops and Disk'Os and things aren't?

    I'm pretty sure the Super Loop "train" goes all the way round the loop, whereas the Skywarp has a train with a front and rear.

    As for Disk'Os, I don't know.

    The Skywarp wasn't on RCDB at first, but Duane Marden added it during IAAPA 2017

    Ah right, makes sense. Thanks @lachlan! Come to think of it, I think the Disk'Os might run off of the same principle as the Super Loops.

    In theory, Disk'O's never leave the source of power/propulsion from the track itself whereas the Skywarp's aren't completely connected like the Larson Loopers are, so there is debate as to whether they're coasters or not, I'm not sure if I would really count them?

    So the reason some people count Skywarps is because they do actually coast. Thanks @Lofty!

    In essence, yes. But then, some powered coasters also 'coast' to some extent, so it's a grey area.
