When do you think Arrow will decide to build a Giga, if they decide to at all?

I think now they'll be preoccupied with 4Ds and other types that they'll be too busy to build gigas.

I think they will stick with the 4D coasters for awhile.

I really don't believe that gigas' are going to be that big of a deal in a couple of years: most parks are not going to get them. They are WAY too expensive and big for most parks to have one. Plus I don't think that giga coasters are necessarily better than hypers. The only reason for a giga is to brake world records, right? At some point the height, speed, and length wars are going to have to stop.

I would be happy if Arrow makes quality looping coasters like Tennessee Tornado and Canyon Blaster, with some 4D's thrown in for good measure. And one can only hope there would be a revival of suspended coasters, that would be nice:), but alas, that will probably not happen for a while:(.

I thought Arrow said that 4D's are very difficult to design, so that we wouldn't see them sprouting up everywhere. I don't know, I'm pretty sure I heard that.

X costs about 12-14 million I believe: insanely small price tag, if you ask me! You can get a small-medium sized B&M for that, or an SLC:)

I agree with Coastercraver. And for now I don't think we can get anything better than Intamin or Giovanola! Arrow will continue to develop their amazing loopers and I would rather see them take the technology in Tenn. Tornado and produce a 7 or 8 looper that way. Move over Shockwave!
