Classic Arrow coasters roughness

Monday, May 7, 2001 12:51 PM
If youve ridden any Arrow Dynamics coasters, you know what Im talking about. I was studying some photos of GASM(SFgreat adventure) and some of SFMM's Viper. I saw pictures of the train in the corkscrew and the trains seem to bounce out of track. The cars themselves arent attached to the track. the cars are spring wired to wheels that ARE on the track.This means the car wobbles side to side more than they need to. Also, the restraints dont buckle down the hips(unlike B&M). Can any body tell me if they change this in Tennessee Tornado?

Yep, TT's wheels are spring-loaded like Beemers. In other words, powerful springs keep the wheels in contact with the track all the time. I dunno if the TT OTSRs are different from the classic ones.

For some reason SFDL's viper which opened in 1982 is still very smooth for its age, had a really good ride on it yesterday. ~A
