I see a lot of posts regarding that Arrow has only made 3 hypercoasters. Not true. Lately, (can somebody confirm when?) they built "Titan" at Spaceworld in Japan. It is 201 feet tall and has 5,106 of track. VERY strange layout though, not your average Magnum/Morgan hill system... Lots of strange looking helicies.
Don't believe me? Go to www.arrowdynamics.com
and see for yourself.
Has anybody seen more about this ride? I would like to see more pictures...

As Titain is an Arrow, Arrow has therefore made FIVE, nor four, as Steel Phantom counts as a Hypercoaster with its 225 foot drop.

Well, I'm reffering to what Arrow considers a hypercoaster. (I consider hyperloopers a different category altogether)

The logo that says coming November 13 on the arrow site looks like a looping coaster, any ideas?

My only idea would be not to try and overanalyze this. As I used to work & run a number of movie sites over anaylization ends up being more of a hassle then what its worth. Meaning that the the results that you get often don't justify the means.
I think the best thing we can do is wait. That way we don't get our hopes up for anything huge. It could just be a site redesign.
You build it, I'll ride it

On Arrow's official website it has the Steel Phantom catagorized under steel loopers and not hypercoasters. But yet it is one, I just thought id point this out.
