Arrow Dynamics Question

Did arrow produce anything new besides the 4-D in the last three or four years? I cannot recall any arrow coasters besides X being made.

the last ride before X was psycho mouse (PGA) in 2001, mad mouse (mighigans adventure) and tennessee tornado (dollywood) in 1999. before that, it was road runner express (SFFT) in 1997 and diablo at port adventura in 1995.

the main reason for the lack of rides was that arrow was approaching bankrupcy after all the money lost developing the pipeline coaster and so not many people wanted a coaster off them.

Is VF's Mad Mouse like MiA's.....a really enjoyable mouse, esp. without the VICIOUS braking you find in so many mice now.....I also liked PKD's, but not *quite* as much...

Haha, although I thought coasters were implied, Arrow did build the torch for the Salt Lake City Olympics.

The Torches were built by Coleman, but the Cauldron was Manufactured by Arrow. ;)

Was it really bankruptcy or was it just that B&M were building a better ride by then and had new things to offer?

Probably a combination of both. Better competition and insufficient funds do not go together all that well.
