Why Not Get Suspended?

No, not from work or school, but from some classic Arrow steel track!  The Bat at Kings Island, opened in 1994 (not too be confused with the similarly named but ultimately failed early 80s suspended coaster) and was called Top Gun.   Appropriately, it was themed to the 1986 movie.  I think Kings Island nailed it with its current paint job and the revival of the legendary failure’s name.  It is certainly just as fun to sit and watch as it is too ride.

What’s Your Take?

Do you like Arrow suspended roller coasters?  Are there any that are now defunct you wish you could have ridden? Would you like to see new suspended roller coasters built?
