Don't know about the Blunt. I have the Skate Banana. It revolutionised my riding. (i.e. - doesn't suck) It is amazingly grippy on ice - there is no more effective grip technology than Mervin's.
What sort of park?? Big jumps maybe not either of the two you suggest. Jibbing and buttering are the Skate Banana's strong points. I thought the Evil Twin was a fair bit stiffer than the Skate Banana. For landing bigger jumps and a bit more all mountain freindly maybe the Evil Twin or something like the Never Summer Proto. The Never Summer Evo is a firm forum favourite (nice use of alliteration!) and awesome in the park flexier than the Skate Banana (if you were going for the 56)

please do not buy a blunt. i hate that board.
pick up a 156 SB and you'll be one happy canadian

It might've changed, but my blunt '08 had some topsheet problems... and I've heard others have had board-splitting problems as well.
But the skate banana is a solid board - rocker + mtraction will have you learning new tricks like nobody's business.
