Arrow Supports vs. B&M

Sunday, May 13, 2001 8:50 AM
Why does Arrow use the boxy, see through supports, When B&M use the long tubular ones? Does one provide more structural support than the other? I think the Arrow supports are an eye-sore.

If FoF got that great of a makeover than why can't I?

yeah, i think the B&M supports look cool. they look more modern. i'd guess they both give about the same amount of support, probably.

I think B&M's suports cost a little more than arrows because of it's a larger amount of steel. With arrow, they use a smaller amount of steel, but combine much more of it. So I'm not really sure which costs more, but when I look at a B&M, it just looks a little more expensive to me.

Arrow's supports can be an eyesore, but I wonder what they'd look like with High End lights...

I like Intamin's over both of theirs. The separate structure towers supporting the hyper/giga lift. Except Expedition G-Force. That has the long, tubular ones.

Lynch, about that.... I saw a picture of the Pepsi Max Big One at night, and it has a really amazing lighting system. WOW! It looked stunning! Kind of like MF when it's lit with just white light. When lit right, those supports that can be an eyesore are beautiful!

Raging Bull looks awesome in the B&M supports. Personally, I think the B&M supports make Bull seem less than 202 feet.

I think its all about design. Even the tracks are different. B&M just chooses to use a different style of support.

i think that B&M s8upports do make their rides look much shorter. And I like arrows supprts better then Intamin's

IT is weird though because they have there roots connected somehow. thats probably why they split off, they all had different tastes for things.
