Arrow the best value??

Saturday, July 14, 2001 8:45 PM
It seems pretty clear that Arrow has an advantage over the competition.X is a truly remarkable design.It is a lot of bang for the buck.It's 220ft tall,has a revolutionary train design,has a terrific and extremely large infrastructure all for the bargain price of $14 Mil. When compared to other coasters and the outrageous price tags. It seems that Magic Mountain received a pretty sweet deal. What do you think? *** This post was edited by Coaster Bob on 7/15/2001. ***

If they do they do.
It might not be a bad thing.
I'm sure if a new company did take them over. Arrow might find more resources to design even more new and exciting rides. Be able to hire a larger work force and create more rides more often.

I'm not convinced. For $14m, thats unbelieveable value!! Oblivion cost 15m, pounds, not dollars, making X cheaper.

MM is saying that it cost $14Mil. No reason to lie

But, for a few million you could have a world class woodie.

hey you cant beat the price. but it may have been a bargan type deal just to get the ride up. arrow might be taking a loss on this ride just to prove the design you never know.

Well it is a good price,but Goliath was only 12 million.

You want to talk about getting your money's worth? Raven cost 2 million dollars.

best value ever!
-who is also happy HW made the larger investment in The Legend

yea they paid way to much for raven, it isn't worth crap, it's the most over-rated coaster i have ever seen. i do have one question does that 14 mil include DeJa Vu.

No it doesn't include Deja vu

Seriously, if you wanted to label anything a best value it's virtually anything CCI has ever made.

What Arrow can do remains to be seen. Stealth looked really good on paper to, and it turned out to be average at best and horrible in capacity. Let's just wait and see, shall we?

My perspective is more along the lines as raw material and new technology.I still maintain that it is alot of bang for the dollar.

I think X will be great

Just saw picks from Twisted Rails 7/15/01 and this ride and it's massive. It's made to last that's for sure. *** This post was edited by Coaster Bob on 7/15/2001. ***

Jeff's right, the real hard value of X is yet to be determined. However, interest in this coaster has exploded, giving SFMM the kind of publicity that they don't even have to pay for. I'm sure this is of far more value than the initial price tag of the ride. Without the blockbuster potential of X, the park would be looking at a recent death in their park, as well the disappointing delay of Deja Vu. X throws all of that into the background, showing flashes of brilliance before the vertical construction has even been completed. Now *That's* value.

It's not about being right or wrong.
You have to agree that the infrastructure alone is worth more than $14 mil.
