Trailblazer was built by Arrow Development, an amusement park ride and roller coaster manufacturing company that was formed in 1945.  Two years before Trailblazer was built, Arrow Development was sold to Rio Grand Industries.  After the Huss Trading Corporation purchased Arrow Development in 1981, the company changed its name to Arrow-Huss, but the company went bankrupt just three years later.   In 1986, a group of former employees purchased the assets of Arrow-Huss and formed Arrow Dynamics.  That version of the company made a number of notable rides, but it too went bankrupt in December 2001.  Its assets were purchased by S&S Power, but the only Arrow Dynamics design that they have built is the 4th dimension coaster.
