What I love most about Arrow loopers are the stomach turning drops (Viper at SFMM comes to mind) and the sheer intensity of them. I don't find them to be very rough rides surprisingly. I'd actually like to try and hit Tennesse Tornado one day just to see how far they've come since their hey-day in the early '90's (Shockwave, GASM, and Viper). It's too bad we don't see any more of them popping up. ------------------ -my signature is empty-
I like the fact that just about each & every Arrow looper is different... even if slightly.
Everywhere from Viper at Magic Mountain, to Dragon Mountain at Marineland to Anaconda, to Steamin Demon, to Corkscrew at CP... big or little... they are all different slightly in one way or another, which is cool... despite them basically having the same elements.
Carolina Cyclone is a smooth, intense, exciting coaster... it beats all the other arrow loopers I've ridden by far (Corkscrew at CP, Corkscrew at MBP). My absolute favorite moment in the ride is the dive into the tunneled helix... very different from the average corkscrew turned double looper.
To be different, one of the things I love about Arrow coasters is the signature rattle of a train traveling up a lift. There's just something about that hollow, metallic cacophony that's music to my ears.
