I've seen the prtotypes for the 4D and V.R.
Is there a prototype ArrowBAtic?

There were prototypes for the Pipeline, flying turns, and Suspended coaster that I have seen videos of. I didn't know that the Virginia Reel had one!
As far as I know, there hasn't been an ArrowBatic prototype, but that's just because I haven't seen pics, or read about it in any of the industry mags.

When they show the Pipeline on AGRCT3D, there is a curving section of gray sit-down track to the extreme right. Does anyone know what's it for? I think it could be for their corkscrew prototype coaster.

I seem to remember a coaster show where an Arrow employee is sitting atop an ArrowBatic car on some track and he is talking about the "ape hangers" which are these massive hook like things on the top of the ArrowBatic. The ape hangers are there in case a car derails and instead of falling the ape hangers would catch hold of the rails and keep the car from plummenting.
Pretty sure it was an ArrowBatic though and not a suspended, anybody else remember seeing this?, so, I believe Arrow does have an ArrowBatic prototype.

It was the ArrowBatic.
