Skyline Attractions is excited to announce its newest ride model, an innovative and budget-friendly children’s roller coaster lineup known as P’Sghetti Bowl. These miniature steel roller coasters are as twisted as a bowl of spaghetti and the perfect first roller coaster for any child! And with the new product’s cost-conscious sales price, P’Sghetti Bowl is an ideal addition to any amusement park or family entertainment center looking for a great new American-built attraction.

“As a father of four, I realize the importance of amusement parks having rides that are accessible to all ages,” Skyline President Jeff Pike said. “I remember taking my young daughters on their first roller coaster and how thrilling it was for them and how exciting it was for me. That first roller coaster was also an important stepping stone for them, as it helped them build the courage to ride other amusement park rides. Our new P’Sghetti Bowl attraction will enable more parks and family entertainment centers to offer experiences like this to families.”

Skyline is debuting P’Sghetti Bowl with four off-the-shelf models, as well as custom ride layout offerings. Each P’Sghetti Bowl layout includes a single-operator station, tire driven lift hill, and a series of twists and curves. The ride can be installed indoors or outdoors, and each model maintains the same low 36 inch [91 centimeter] height requirement and an inclusive train design that makes them accessible to riders of all ages. The P’Sghetti Bowl lineup is designed and engineered to be fun and thrilling for both children and their parents.

“It’s one thing to watch your child have a blast on a ride, but it’s even better when you can ride with them and genuinely have as much fun as they are,” Pike said. “The P’Sghetti Bowl trains have been designed to accommodate an adult and child, or two children, in each row. The layouts are also interesting and dynamic enough that we think older riders will still find them exciting.”

Alongside its inclusive train design, P’Sghetti Bowl also features an innovative new track design. The custom track incorporates a unique single rail, the first-of-its-kind on a children’s roller coaster. This will limit the number of welds, drastically reducing fabrication and maintenance costs. Cost-saving measures have also been implemented elsewhere in the ride’s design and fabrication.

“If a park or family entertainment center wanted to purchase an American-made children’s roller coaster, they currently have very limited options,” Skyline Vice President Chris Gray said. “P’Sghetti Bowl is fully designed, engineered, and built inthe United States.”

Any P’Sghetti Bowl roller coaster can be enhanced with customized decals on the passenger train or even the track, a first within the amusement industry.

“With the single-rail design and relatively modest size of these rides, we have the opportunity to be the first ride manufacturer to allow a park or FEC to theme the roller coaster track itself,” Gray said. “Instead of looking like a roller coaster track, it could now look like a snake, a racetrack, or whatever a customer wants to fit their theme.”

P’Sghetti Bowl offers parks and FECs the unique opportunity to theme their roller coaster track. Just a few possible themes include the wooden deck of a pirate ship, an extraterrestrial spaceship, or a slithering snake.

The four off-the-shelf models range in size from miniature to medium, with the larger ones including additional hills and helices.

Model A (185’) is the smallest of the models and is an elongated oval with a curved drop and a series of miniature airtime hills. It is 14 feet [4.3 meters] tall and 185 feet [56.4 meters] in length. Model A can fit into an 80 foot by 32 foot [24.4 meter by 9.8 meter] space. This is the most affordable option and is reminiscent of the small-scale roller coasters that used to populate kiddie parks across the country.

Model B (235’) is the second smallest at 18 feet [5.5 meters] tall and 235 feet [71.6 meters] in length. It’s similar to Model A with a curved drop, but its airtime hills are combined with rapid back-and-forth transitions. Its space requirements are 100 feet by 32 feet [30.5 meters by 9.8 meters].

Model B (235′)

Model C (420’) is a tightly-twisted knot of roller coaster track, passing over and under its own track six times as it navigates a series of highly-banked curves and a medium-sized airtime hill. It is 22 feet [6.7 meters] tall, 420 feet [128.0 meters] long, and has a footprint of 100 feet by 40 feet [30.5 meters by 12.2 meters].

Model D (410’) is the final model and is more elongated than the other models. It has an emphasis on hills and a tightly-wound helix. It is 22 feet [6.7 meters] tall, 410 feet [125.0 meters] long, and fits in a 152 foot by 38 foot [46.3 meter by 11.6 meter] space.

These custom layouts can include multiple lift hills, interactions with the terrain, and even intertwined tracks for a one-of-a-kind racing children’s roller coaster. Custom P’Sghetti Bowl layouts can be tailored to fit any park’s or family entertainment center’s space constraints and budget.

Congrats Skyline! You've now officially managed to rip off Larson, RMC, AND E&F Miler!

Wonder if these kids coasters will work better than their current models...but hey, at least it's an interesting concept! I'll take one that's 300' tall, has speeds up to 90 mph, has 10 inversions, and has height requirement of 48". (Wait...did I just describe an RMC T-Rex? What manufacturer are we talking about again?)

Let's see...who's up for getting it first, La Ronde, Valleyfair, or Wild Adventures?😜

Honestly, these are super cute. I wish them all the luck and success with this product line; I know the Skywarp line has not been the most inspiring so far but if these manage to take off I think they could be a welcome alternative to the ever-present Zamperla and SBFs that are friggin' everywhere.

No, no, you misunderstand.  I don't give a hoot about inspiration, I'm talking about functionality.  They need to prove their rides and ride systems are reliable otherwise why would anyone give them a second glance?  When the competition has proven over and over again that they have extremely reliable attractions nobody is going to look twice at their ripoff kiddie raptor.

I'm not misunderstanding a thing, KB. When I said "inspiring", the unspoken part of that was "inspiring confidence in their reliability". Everyone here knows the issues they've faced so far with the Skywarp installations.

With that being said, these kiddie rides are a perfect example for them to prove themselves; if they are cost-effective, customizable, and dependable, this could be a great way for them to get back into the market after a disastrous first few efforts.
