No one's forgotten about the Aerobatic because no park has ever built one!

Here's a little know fact, Arrow made a couple standup roller coasters way back. One was a mine train standup at Six Flags Mid America (Now ST. Louis) and the defunct Extreme Roller Coaster at Valleyfair!

True, Zero-G, but not 100% true. Arrow never made a standup, but two of their coasters (the two you mentioned) were retrofitted with standup trains for a breif time.

Really? Didn't think that would work because the forces would be increased on a, for lack of a better term, "non-standup track", Like tring to put standup cars on Kumba or Hulk.

Well, if one was a mine train, it was much less intense, so you didn't need to worry.

The only inverteds that Arrow have made are: N/A! Some people would try to argue that suspended coasters are inverted, but they aren't. Suspended swing freely, where inverted coaster trains are rigid.

Yeah Arrow has designed the Arrowbatic (Inverted Mad Mouse-type coaster, yet noone have been built yet. And regarding stand-ups, both the Arrow Stand-ups were originally other coasters which got stand-up trains installed. (By the way Zero-G, the stand-up besides SFSL was Screamroller at Worlds of Fun, not Valleyfair)
