Inverted Wild Mouse coasters

Saturday, December 1, 2001 6:45 PM
Is there any of them built anywhere in the world?  If there isn't then some should be constructed.  We all know how fun regular wild mice are.  It would be cool to have an inverted wild mouse, don't you think?

No, I don't agree. An inverted wild mouse would require horse collars, which will result in one of the following:

A: Boxing Match: The Ride

B: A ride that isn't really a wild mouse.

Who said you need OTSRs? It doesn't go upside down, does it (Not like you'd absoloutely need them then either)?

I think you're getting pretty close to the design of the ArrowBatic with that idea...

Actually, on a special I saw on TV, and Arrow designed special OSTRs that didn't cause headbanging and allowed you to put your arms up.

The car you saw was the prototype car for arrowbatic.Those appear to be the same type of restraints used on X.

I can't wait for one of the ArrowBatics to actally be built. I don't understand why no parks have jumped at this new idea yet. It seems to me that the general public would probably be even more excited by these coasters than the enthusiasts.

I agree with Rod. It only requires a small footprint, and pretty cheap in price. I don't understand why no park has installed them. Especially with the recent resurgance of the original Wild Mouse. It only makes logical sense. Some of the wilder ones have a few inversions. I'd think parks would be jumping on them.

I'd love to ride one but I think the reason why no parks have yet to buy one is there is low capacity levels?

The layouts I've seen have been more extreme than Wild Mouse, so the lines just might be a lot longer.

When I said earlier about not needing OTSRs, I assumed we were talking about some sort of Maurer-Sohne Inverted Mouse or something. It would be silly to say ArrowBatics don't need some sort of upper body restraint.

BTW, Thanks seasupersonic, I think its a cool name too ;).

The capacity issue has been solved on the BATic. Also, I think the main reason parks haven't bought them is because of the X situation. Most parks don't know if they want to invest millions of dollars into something that might potentially take 18+months to make work. Once one park like SFMM takes a chance on the BATic and it gets a chance to prove itself, we will see them pop up everywhere...

 

BTW, I have ridden the ArrowBATic prototype and let me say this... It is a VERY smooth exciting ride that has enormous potential to bring competition to all Inverted coasters in the market today(including B&M)!

So there is one.  I hope they bloom and many parks get them just like the normal wild mice.
