The first instillation of Skyline Attractions' brand new ride, the Skywarp, is currently progressing at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom where it will be known as Harley Quinn Crazy Coaster.

The Northern California theme park has started to receive parts of the new ride, and quickly began installing them at the work side, located just next to the Superman Ultimate Flight roller coaster.

Harley Quinn Crazy Coaster features bright red track and dark gray supports, and will give riders a thrilling experience including many inversions.  Dual trains of riders will be powered through the layout which resembles a giant figure eight on its side, and the movement of the trains will include both forward and backward motions.  This photo, from manufacturer Skyline Attractions, shows some of the first tall pieces of track being installed.

Just a day later this photo was taken, and it shows that even more of the track has been put in place.  The photo is from Jeff Pike, President of Skyline Attractions, who is understandably proud of the company's first 'big' ride being constructed.  The Orlando Sentinel recently did a feature story on the growing company, which can be read at this link.

And now just today Six Flags Discovery Kingdom has completed one half of the ride's track, standing around 62 feet tall.  Harley Quinn Crazy Coaster will be able to accommodate around 800 riders per hour when it opens.
Six Flags Discovery Kingdom also did an unveiling of the ride's trains, which just arrived at the park.  Can't wait to see them installed on the track and the ride fired up for the first time!
