Do you think Arrow will make any more Hypers? (excluding the 4D)

As long as they can build several of them at a time at a reasonable cost and effectively market them to willing clientele.

IMO, Arrow never lost it, man am I gonna get yelled at but, sure some of their coasters are rough and bangy, but who's to say that if your not on something as smooth as a feather it sucks. Arrow will be back, and more hypers are in the future. Yell at me all you want, but I like Arrow coasters.

And one more thing, long live Magnum.

If a park wants to build one, I'm sure Arrow will make it. I'm wondering why no park has built an Arrowbactic yet.

Yeah,they're back all right.:)
I can't wait to ride their new floorless coasters,
from what I've seen its a trip with no track under your feet.
They're back and here to stay.....:)

DirtyVern, are you referring to B&M florless coasters? (The only ones currently built) Or are you talking about the 4D? (Or perhaps something I do not yet know about) I'm confused!

Is there an Arrow floorless model in the future?

I think they realized that a floorless is only great in the front, and that B&M have done just about everything you can do with that concept. I mean, unless it's a front seat ride, it feels like all the rest.

Arrow are cost effective and VERY reliable. Years of experience and skill can only lead to a fantastic ride....it all depends if a park chooses them over Intamin, Giovanola or B&M. I personally have fallen big time for these Intamin hypers! Long live SROS at SFA!

In all fairness,Arrow hasn't had a recent introduction into a major market for almost a decade. So when people choose to compare Arrow to other manufactures they are comparing new coasters to coasters that are almost 10 to 20 years old. Now that there are new benchmarks, technologies,and designers Arrow will be amazing.

For such a large period of gathering experience, you'd think that they would have designed better supports for their rides. I guess it makes their rides look different though, take a look at the supports on X and I challenge you to say that they aren't overly big and ugly.

I actually like the way Arrow supports look. And I perfer those to the ones on Viper(which I do find ugly. I also love Magnum's supports. ;)

From what I've heard and the pictures that were presented to me,yes Arrow is coming out with a floorless.
The coaster trains look just like X's but do not rotate.From what I understand it'll be their next generation standard for their megaloopers and hyper loopers for parks that wish to order them.......:)

and yet the funny thing is, many of the arrow coasters from the late 80's/early 90's are just as good as the B&M's and intamins of today.

I think Arrow is really in a tough spot right now. They've been out of the main stream for so long that parks have kinda forgotten about them. If a park wanted to build a hyper, chances are they'd go with B&M, Intamin, or Morgan. I know I would if I were to build a new coaster. If Arrow could produce a high quality ride at a lower cost, then they might just have something.

I think the key word here is "cost effective", and Arrow does have an advantage there. X is $14 million. Not bad considering the extra train hardware...

I doubt many parks have truly "forgotten" about Arrow. There's at least one Arrow ride in every ride (maybe I'm exaggerating, but it seems like it), and once X starts running, I think they'll reign supreme once again in many people's minds.

Where's the company's focus. I read somewhere that they want to focus on small to medium sized rides that are fun and affordable.But then I hear they want to build a 750 Ft Fishhook ride,Super 64 train megalooper,and 4D's?????? What niche are they trying to fill if any?
