Big Bad Wolf

Sunday, July 20, 2003 9:00 AM
We all know the ( false ) rumors about Drachen Fire being built by Arrow, but designed by B&M. However, I read somewhere that Big Bad Wolf was designed, and actually partially built by Schwarzkopf. During the project, Schwarzkopf went bankrupt ( or something similar ) and couldn't complete the project, so it was handed over to Arrow.

If this rumor is true, how much construction had been completed before the project was handed over to Arrow? And also, were there any design modifications in the process of switching companies?

I heard the same thing, I was under the impression that Anton had a different layout for it, and it was never used. I'm not sure whether thats true or not, but I am sure that he was going to make a suspended coaster at some point, and it didn't work out.

There's a site about BBW somewhere the explains the whole Schwarzkoph/Arrow thing. Does anyone have the link? I do know though that some of the supports are Shwarzkoph.

Ive always heard that Aton layed footers and designed the layout, Arrow just supplied the train and track. Its always made sense to me because BBW is nothing like its suspended counter parts.
