I think pretty much. The only differences I see (for the 2011 version at least because I think they discontinued the darkstar) are that the parkstar is rocker/flat/rocker while the darkstar is flat all the way to the ends. This makes the parkstar a bit more flexy and fun and a bit better for the park. I have to say it handles extremely well all mountain as well though. Other than that, they sound pretty similar. The price tag is about +$30 for the parkstar. This is just buy stats and reviews since I have never actually ridden the darkstar. If you loved the darkstar though I'd be willingly to bet you'd love the parkstar at least as much if not more.
