This coaster looks more and more amazing every day. Can't wait. I think Arrow is back in a BIG way, at least, I hope they are. Even though their older coasters are rough now, they are still great rides. Let's just hope this coaster won't be rough. :)
Im sure that they have taken out the rough stuff with this new project, after all the Tennesse Tornado is smooth as glass ......watch for one of these babys next year at SFWA.... ------------------------------------------------- Parks done this year.SFGA,SFWA,SFKK,SFA,PKI,PKD,BGW,HERSHEY,HOLIDAY WORLD,IB,CP AND BIG CHIEF

I totally agree with Mamoosh, freely spinning seats would be incredible, well, except maybe when it's going at 75 miles per hour, but otherwise, bring it on!! Oh yea, I'm going to SFMM on Sunday, i can look at this thing in person, or person to coaster, whatever. ------------- The SFMM Salvi: "I want to go on something more exciting than X"
I don't know, but freely spinning seats sound very exciting and suspensful, but dangerous too. I don't want to be tossed forwards and backwards at break neck speeds at 60+ mph. If they can somehow program each seat to have a different spinning routine, then that will be cool; btt that is gonna be very expensive and take a huge effort from mechanics and engineers.
Due to the constant delays, it feels like Deja Vu will never open. But, testing has begun. I don't think that there is anyway that X will open first. There is so much more to work on. Don't you think that testing and tinkering on X will be much more detailed than any coaster ever built? All I can say is, remember Superman!!!
Adam Frank - Superman: TE uses LSM's - an advanced new technology never before used. X does not really use any new technology. Its not like computers are controlling the spinning on the cars... its just placement of the rails. Therefore, I don't think we will see any testing problems.
I think I have solved the Arrow roughness problem. The track rails "sag" inbetween the crossties, compare it to a telephone wire if you will, the would cause a buncing and shaking sensation. I have checked alot of pictures and have done some personal tests with this. I like to find out why stuff is bad so I can fix it when I design um.. ------------- Fear the Rath of the Orient Express!!
