This looks better than Oblivion...I almost forgot that there was even an inversion in it!

Here's some more concept art from BGT. This picture looks kind of odd. Almost like the alternate universe Shakira. Check out the design of the track!

^ Many years ago Vekoma bought the rights to Arrow's track design. They've made some changes to it, but essentially the old Vekoma's and Arrow's were VERY similar design because they were all derived from the same place.

Does that explain why both old arrows and old vekomas get rough? Seriously though the arrows seem to hold out a bit longer though.

BTW what happened to the dive machines supposedly not being able to do acrobatics and stuff because of the super wide cars?
