Now this stuff goes way back...I think this may be the earliest that I started to collect stuff. I received this marketing packet from Arrow
back in 1977. It shows the Knott's Corkscrew when it was set up for testing at the plant in Mountain View, CA.
Also there is a some great stuff on the Steeplechase, Log Flumes and other rides that Arrow
manufactured at that time.
This was also when they had just began to market their latest development, the Suspended Coaster. You can see an early layout of what the ride could have been along with a diagram of the suspended coach.
If you are an Arrow
fan, read up, there is a lot of interesting information that is included in this post, amazing that it took six years to develop the Corkscrew. I also have more brochures coming from when Arrow
went through its many transitions from Arrow Development
to Arrow Huss
to Arrow Dynamics
to see another Arrow Development
marketing brochure that focuses on engineering, fabrication, and installation of coasters, particularly the Loch Ness Monster
