For those of you that hate the project, look on the bright side. A Skyrocket is a low-budget clone, and could be a buffer attraction to give the park an attendance boost. We still could end up seeing an RMC or Hyper in the next three years. Just look at what BGT's sister park did. They opened Tempesto, and then built Invadr.

Busch Gardens has submitted their plans for the Tidal Wave plot, looks to be a Premier Rides Skyrocket II.


Interesting, if this happens there will essentially be a Skyrocket II in every corner of the United States. Pacific Southwest (San Diego), almost Northwest (Vallejo), Southeast (Tampa), and North Atlantic (Bristol).

This is a great addition. RIP "Black Spot" but this is obviously more than worth it. :lol:

The comfort collars are tricky to get in and out of since those vehicles are already super awkward, but I didn't find them an issue during Tempesto.

I still haven't ridden a Sky Rocket II (I will ride both Electric Eel and Superman for the first time next month), but these look like great rides that give parks a lot of bang for their buck.

And like another poster said, these Sky Rockets will be very spread out. NorCal, SoCal, New England, Mid-Atlantic, and Florida. Now we just need to get a park like Worlds of Fun get one!

^ I think a Sky rocket II would be a good fit for Adventureland

I prefer to mate with donkeys over humans!

I can't believe these things have become the next Boomerangs (or SLC's) in their redundancy (but reportedly, a lot better than either of those clones), yet I haven't been on one yet! I've definitely wanted to try one ever since seeing Superman at SFDK, so hopefully I can visit a park that has one before too long!
