Too bad SFNE ISNT gonna replace it with anything this year... And I don't see anything going in that spot for years to come... :(
Sadly Time Warp is one of my favorite rides at the park. My friends were all so scared of it. One rode it with me on an end seat... Right after we had gotten off SkyCoaster and she said she'd rather ride SkyCoaster again than Time Warp.

Timewarp was my favorite of this type of ride. It was very comfortable, especially when compared to a Zamperla Hawk. I just don't think Vekoma ever marketed it very well. It was very smooth and the restraint system was comfortable even when stopped at the top. I will miss the timewarp. Those pictures reminded me of the photos of the Rainbow at Liseberg after the accident there. It was just cut apart and dumped as scrap. So sad to see.

I'll agree that the Vekoma ride was SOOO much better than the awful Zamp Hawk. 3 row seats = NO arm room at all... And the HUGH OTSRs that were rock hard made for a sub-par ride after one had ridden the goodness of the Vekoma model.

im very disapointed b/c timewarp was real good. iit was real good, one of a kind experience did vekoma sell any other sky jumpers and what piece was missing.

Only about 5 were sold. 2 in the US, 2 in Japan, and maybe 1 in Europe.
Both US rides have now been removed. Frontier City (ex-SF park) removed theirs over last offseason. And now SFNEs is gone.

Very disappointing. I didn't ride this often and I came off heart the first time I rode it. but it was one of the best of the inverting spin rides. It also looked amazing in its location.

No because it was a prototype and Vekoma didn't have the parts for it any more.
Nothing will ever go there because Pandemonium was built around it therefore nothing else would fit there.

Pandemonium isn't a custom design, not it's layout. In every other installation that turn is built around something. The mall of America's is around a Flying swing ride. So your looking at any ride with a 60 or less foot print.

Actually Pandemonium has it's own layout compared to all the THBS and the one in the Mall of America.
mrceagle - November 21, 2009 02:54 AM (GMT)
Like I said Take a look at it. THBS is a different and well shorter design then Pandemonium. Pandemonium has the same layout and many of the previous installed Spinning coaster but it was build lower to the ground.
in all there is a 50ft circle in there. so there are a few attraction that could fit in that loop.
