I know they have filed for bankruptcy, but will they do any more manufacturing for any of their coasters including 4Ds ?

They'll only manufacture what parks want to buy. I believe I did hear that they would no longer be fabricating the track, they will now outsource that part of the work.

That is their business. That's what they do for a living.

When did Arrow file for bankruptcy? I knew they filed for bankruptcy PROTECTION, but not bankruptcy!

That is what I meant to say, Bankruptcy protection.

The answer is a simple yes, if a park orders one and pays for it!

There's a good interview on this site with the current Arrow CEO that might answer all of these questions and concerns. If you would have read the article you would understand that Arrow is trying to diversify into other areas to minimize their dependence on the amusement park industry (i.e., they designed the 2002 Salt Lake City Olympic torch).

Arrow Manufactured the Olympic Cauldron, not the Olympic Torches. The Original Design for the Cauldron was done by an Engineering Student at the University of Utah. The Torches were manufactured by Coleman. :)

Exactly :) But I just feel the people behind it all should get the credit they deserve. BTW, the glass on the Cauldron came from a company in Ogden, Utah :)

Arrow won't manufacture anything... they closed that division. I guess I shouldn't say anything, they'll still do parts, but they won't be doing track and supports, they'll contract that out.

However, they will design the rides, so if someone wants a 4D, they'll design one, and much like B&M, contract out the fabrication.

This is not directly related to Titan Fan, but I am so sick of hearing about 4-d's. Yeah they are really awesome, and yeah there is only one of them and yeah everybody on this site wants to ride one or loves to ride them, but do we have to have constant posts about what park the next one will be at or if there will be another one or if it will be the same design or whatever. It's really getting annoying and I'm starting to think it's only used to get people to post on your topics.

Well, usually posts about the fourth dimension have "4D" or "fourth dimension" in the topic title. If you are so sick of hearing about them, why do you keep reading the topics that are clearly about them?
