Arrow Question

Thursday, August 2, 2001 1:39 PM
I think this is a good question for Rideman. I am a deparment manager here in Cleveland for a grocery store chain named Heinen's. Anyway we are having a huge Euclid Beach Park celebration/promotion running for two weeks starting next week. Each store (13 stores total) will each get a horse off the carousel and a different part of a ride. For example today they delivered to our store a restored Turnpike Car. On the hood of the car was a metal decal that said Arrow. I was just curious to know if this was the actual manufacturer or just a random name.

It was cool becasue when they delivered our turnpike car they had an old dodgem car restored and an unrestored flying turns car that were both going to other stores.

Dan Arrow did make Turnpike Cars. I know they have them at SFWoA according to the stats on the webpage SFWoA: A Refreshing Look!.

I'm assuming that these are ride parts from Euclid Beach, right? I read "Turnpike Car" and that's what my husband worked at Cedar Point a few years ago, and they didn't have any decoration or markings on the hoods. Different ride, different manufacturer, right?

The antique cars at Paramount`s Kings Island also have an arrow logo, right below and to the right of the steering wheel.

What is this Grocerystorebuzz :). Heinens is expensive, but they have good Staffing customer service unlike my store (Toys Aren't Us) were I have to Run 8 different departments at once.

I believe the Turnpike Cars were made by Arrow, I think I read that in EBP is closed for the season (don't have the book with me now :(). The were installed in the early to mid 60's at EBP and look almost the same as CP's Turnpike cars. The name of the ride was just "Turnpike Cars" and I think they also made there way to Shady Lake Park.

Incidentally, the bridge for the cars is still in existence. *** This post was edited by Joe E. on 8/2/2001. ***

Those cars went from Euclid Beach to Shady Lake to Old Indiana Fun Park, and I have no idea where they went from there when OIFP was auctioned.
What I thought was neat was that the "antique sport cars" that Darien Lake has have "Arrow Flyer" logos on the grilles.
Dan, I think your question has been adequately answered by everybody else! See, I'm not the only one here who knows a thing or two about rides!
