The only Arrow Wild Mouse I've been on is the Mad Mouse at Michigan's Adventure. A fun ride, but nothing spectacular. I must say, though, that for it's size, it's a great ride. ------------- How dare you vanquish the Steel Phantom without his consent? Fear the Phantom's Revenge.

Arrowbatic would be sweet, but I think it's just an Arrow Wild Mouse coaster, something we don't have in Northern California as of yet. Looks like we'll have it soon enough though! I can't wait until the "official" announcement. Peace. :D
------------- Medusa at Marine World: the best in the west!
After comparing the photos in the news article to Arrow's website's ArrowBATic concept drawings, I think this will be a standard Wild Mouse. Most of the yellow track look like non-banked hairpin turns. The ArrowBATic concept art shows banked hairpin turns.
I guess once the rolling stock shows up, we will know for sure.
Top Gun was one of the first B&M inverts. Raptor came later, so what do you expect? It's a fun ride with lots of Gs. What else do you want a coaster to be other than fun? Gosh you people are spoiled, every coaster not at Cedar Point is beneath you right?
------------- You may get wet on this attraction, you may even get drenched! But can you survive the PLUNGE?

Raptor came out one year after Top Gun, but they both were designed in the same year. I like a lot of other coasters besides at Cedar Point. Shivering Timbers and Apollo's Chariot are one of my favorite rides. Cedar Point is home to the most, and best variety of coasters.
I thought Top Gun was a pretty good ride. It was the first inverted that I had ever been on, and I remember that that turn over the lake was pretty awesome...I don't think I have ever been on a coaster that just downright sucked, but then I haven't been on a whole lot...I think all coasters have some element that makes them unique in someway...If all coaster were big hills, they would be no fun. Its like coasters like the swartzkopf(sp?) speedracers, not the tallest or fastest, but great rides
