While Arrow Development and its key founders, Karl Bacon and Ed Morgan, are mentioned in the text, they really deserve their own chapters. In their day, Arrow Development and its successor Arrow Dynamics, had a greater impact on the industry than almost all of the others combined. With over 200 ride systems installed in over 100 parks around the world and patents on the features which other companies later copied. Arrow's creative scope and depth went far beyond roller coasters and flume rides. Their dark rides, self guiding tracked vehicle systems and "special" systems were unique, original and so durable that some of which are still in operation 50 years after they were first installed. Arrow and its founders deserve much more credit and recognition than they have received. Aside from that, this book is a nice overview of ten significant contributors to the history of the amusement park industry.
