All ive been hering about lately is B and M but what about arrow dynamics. They make great coasters. Sure Ron Tumer retired but still whats going on with them?

They are designing some new rides that look like they could be very good (arrowbatic). In the meantime they are doing nothing except a few small wild mice.

The Arrowbatic seems interesting, I hope one is built nearby to me.

It is some type of inverted coaster that can do lots of special elements, like 90 degree drops. For more info, got o thrillride.com, go to special features, then go to the 1999 Trade Show, it is there.

There is quite a bit of info about on the ArrowBatic at their official website. There are links to lots of coaster design companie's websites under the "sites" menu.
The Larger ArrowBatic does look cool, but the capacity is a bit lacking.
Gotta ride 'em all!

The Arrowbatic is basically a super-delux inverted wild mouse, and one I'd love to see soon.
Arrow has to evolve, and abandon everything they've done. They don't exactly have a great reputation with the failures of Steel Phantom and Drachen Fire. The Nineties were not kind to Arrow.
The real issue, if I had to guess, is that they need the cash and imagination for significant new R&D. B&M has been doing great things the last eight years. Intamin is doing great things all over the place with coasters, drop and water rides. Arrow needs to find a niche in a hurry.
To their credit, they got the suspended coaster right with PKI's Top Gun, but at that point it appeared no one else wanted one. It's a real shame.

Wild Mouse??!!?? I don't think so. The ArrowBatic can have any track design that a park's available space can handle. I would love to see PKI put one in where King Cobra is now... but we all know that won't happen.
After reviewing the ArrowBatic from Arrow's website, I am drooling just thinking about it. West coast.. I hope so.
