Arrow Dynamics - What's Next?

Tuesday, December 19, 2000 11:22 AM
So after seeing "X" what does everyone think will happen with Arrow? Will we start to see these pop up all over the Six Flags chain? I know I would sure love to see a version of 4D at my homepark SFGAM.

Who knows, the King Of The 80's may very well be on the comeback trail. That is, of course, if "X" proves to be as big of a success as it looks like it will be.

I have had countless enjoyable rides on Arrow coasters in the past, here's to countless more in the future!! Their Wild Mouse is good, but I am glad to see them come out with the big guns again!!

My question is, what is the next step from here? A coaster with invisible seats? LMAO

I'll tell you what... I pray that, by some chance, one of those bad boys shows up at Six Flags Ohio in the next few years. I highly doubt my wish'll come true, but I'm sure hoping for it.

With the rumored Flying Dutchman coming in at SFO, a new Arrow like X seems highly unlikely.

That's my point. Too bad, really, since I don't plan on being at any other Six Flags parks any time soon.

Wait a minute... if one around here does get one, what's stopping me? :)

I hope this one doesn't go bad after 8-10 years like the other head banging arrow loopers.

Maybe the point will be the next park to unleash this new beast. They have the most arrow coasters

Be thankful for those 8-10 years Antuan.

This X coaster looks good but will it have the effects of all old Arrow coasters.

Its really nice to see Six Flags, of all People, finally buying an Arrow again. Every thing they have done lately has been Vekoma, Intamin, Zeirer, B/M and CCI. (not that I am complaining, at all...never)

As for "whats next" Our boys over there in Utah are working not only with LIM's but with NASA as well as developing new ride technology.

Fortunately, while on Hiatus these last few years, they have been able to manufacture parts for operating Arrows, thus giving them enough of an income to stay in business.

I am just wondering, will they have enough of a staff to fabricate large orders of new rides if the new product they produce become hot sellers.

Unless the designers at Arrow have been living under rocks in Antartica for the last 10 years, I am sure the "headbanging" issue has been taken into STRONG consideration. For those who have ridden Dollywood's Tennessee Tornado (a new Arrow looper, with the look of an old Arrow looper) most report little or no headbanging.

I am pretty sure Arrow would not even try to bring something this incredible (the 4D) to market without fixing their mistakes from the past. At least, I hope not.

Tornado runs fantastic, there is no banging whatsoever, I am guessing that they redesigned the wheel systems and shocks.

I have brought this up with park management before, but i think PKI still needs to replace the Vortex running stock with newer ones.

That coaster will alos perform better with larger wheels.

I really hope X does well, because I too would like to see the 4D installed at other parks. The ride simply looks outrageous. I also would really like to see someone install an ArrowBATic. That looks like it would be great, especially the extreme version.

Isn't Arrow still working on the 64-person "supertrain"? I'd sure like to see what one of those looked like.

I don't know whether a 64 passenger train is still on the idea block, but i would love to see them finish the idea for the pipeline and design another catalog family coaster with a small footprint.

I really hope a park buys another suspended coaster

What would be really cool is if Arrow finally found a way to put inversions into the suspended rollercoaster. Personally, I think that they should try to build more rides like Steel Phantom. The 4th dimension looks like it could be one of the great innovations in rollercoasters, but after the Bat you never know what to expect from Arrow prototypes

Everything is riding on this coaster. This ride will make or break Arrow in terms of market share.
It will amazing. I expect nothing less.

Its really nice to see you many of you saying good things about ARROW again!

I hope for ARROW's sake, the ride opens on time with little or no setbacks, I wouldn't want that to become a cause for not contracting them again.
