It's such a tragedy that Six Flags didn't put much effort into getting Viper sold. It would have been great for DelGrosso's--much better that that piece of Arrow junk they purchased.

So true you pointed that out. I would have the same opinion. Classic Schwarzkopf over a questionable classic Arrow.

rollergator's avatar Compared to other Arrows of its generation, Libertyland's Revolution was in QUITE good shape. Certainly more worthy of relocation than, say, BGT's Python.

That being said, there's NO comparison between SFAW's Viper and any looping Arrow coaster prior to TT.

"Hubert Gerstlauer, who was an electrician at Schwarzkopf formed his own company in the early eighties and provided electrics for several large coasters. Since 1983 Gertlauer resides on the old Schwarzkopf premises."

I thought Gerstlauer worked off the property until 1992 when they bought it. I thought one or two companies, like Stein, operated in between Schwarzkopf going bankrupt and Gerstlauer opening.

Hmmm... I thought TT was pretty overrated. I mean, we still have unbanked curves on the way to the lift and short brake-runs that warrant one-train operation? Come on!

Ride ANY Arrow then ride a OD Hopkins. Arrow coasters are a PRINCE comparatively. Some Arrow mistakes (SFGAm Demon's first drop) seem to be part of their assets..

I have a feeling that DelGrosso's came across a ride that was offered at a price they couldn't refuse.

"An Arrow looper that's in good shape for a few thousand? Why not?"
