I'm wondering what's going on. It's funny when you read articles about Arrow projects. It's just my opinion that when a project is leaked it seems to go no where. Pipeline,The Swine,ArrowBATic in The Mall Of America,The 300ft Magnet launch coaster in Japan,and now the 700ft fish hook.Did I forget any? What's up?

A mega looper that Arrow was suppse to build in England off of a pier.

Don't forget there are even more coasters that they built full scale prototypes for:
(Don't consider the fish hook dead yet, they said it will be a year or 2)

I sure wouldn't mind seeing a virginia reel. I forget what it is called but didn't arrow build the single rail horse racing coaster at Blackpool? I've always wanted to ride one of those.

What is the Flying Turn? But I do agree, Arrow hasn't materialized on many of their concepts.

I am sure that Arrow would be (or would have been) willing to install an ArrowBatic, Virginia Reel, or Pipeline. It's all up the the parks to order a coaster. It makes no sense (with the exception of a prototype) to build a full coaster, only to have it sit in storage. Some designs take off and get sold, others don't. That's life.
"X" marks the spot in 2001!

I believe the flying turns are a nostalgic form of a bobsled ride...

Well, 4D leaked, and that is obviously still a go. And it seems the 700+ ft arrow fishhook in vegas is still a go, not sure what makes you think it has been cancelled. I have read numerous letters and press releases from Stratosphere in recent weeks and months saying that they are in the planning stage of what they say will be one of the tallest thrillrides ever.

Yes it seems that the fish hook is a go but the designer hasn't been determined yet.
