Paramount's Great America has new track on-site

Posted Monday, October 2, 2000 11:01 AM | Contributed by Jeff

It's not going to be the biggest follow up to Stealth, but check out these photos of what appears to be an Arrow wild mouse at PGA.

View the photos at Jeff's Lostworld.

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.

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

Stealth sucked so much I think a train ride would be better

ShiveringTim's avatar Arrow Wild Mouse/ArrowBatic - not a good replacement for the Whizzer IMHO.

Stealth rocked so much but they need a high capacity coaster.

Soggy's avatar 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.

How do you know for sure it is a "Arrow Wild Mouse". I think it is something different and for Arrow, this is no kind of come back. They havn't built a great big ride since the Desperado in 1994.

Go full force, Millennium Force!

One of the supports matches one I've seen on the Arrow Wild Mouse in Myrtle Beach. Also one look at the amount of braking sections definitely indicates a wild mouse.

Why not save up and buy a good coaster in a couple years. I went to PGA this year and I was impressed with Stealth, but all the rest of the coasters are boring. Especially Top Gun.

john peck's avatar Give me an A-R-R-O-W!!!! Whooo-Yeahhhh!

This will be a great ride for smaller coaster buffs.
You don't need to be 310 feet high to be good.

Its really nice to see ARROW sell a catalog coaster again.
But just ya'all wait to see whats next...they are taking their engineering to new heights and out of this world...literally.

Save up? This isn't a high school paper route lol! And Top Gun is awesome! That last turn around the lake is one of the best elements on any coaster!

You may get wet on this attraction, you may even get drenched! But can you survive the PLUNGE?

Top Gun is not tall, not fast, and not long. The turn around over the lake is fun but not as fun as Raptor at CP.

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?

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.

Well let's just say I disagree. I think Top Gun is an underrated masterpiece, and Raptor is big and boring...

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
