Brilliant but he called stealth the scariest rollercoaster in the world. So disappointing.

I've heard some reports of Stealth rolling back a couple of times this week. Surprising as I thought the upgrade a couple of years ago made a rollback very unlikely. Maybe related to that planned maintenance a couple of weeks ago?

The planned maintenance was the annual launch cable change.

I'm not saying I don't believe you but given how unlikely it is for Stealth to rollback now, if it had I dare say we would have seen something more concrete about it by now.

What reports have you heard/seen to suggest that this happened?

Just as a side note - if I'm remembering correctly from the Summer Sizzler BTS, the launch cable is now changed every six months, i.e. once during closed season and once half way through the season (hence July).

Healthy skepticism is always good :) It was over in the MAP Facebook Group, one on Saturday and one from last week. It just stood out to me as I've not heard of a rollback in years. 
Interesting that they now have a fixed schedule for the cable replacement. Was it once over winter before? Or just ad-hoc?

(EDIT: It was last Tuesday: https://forum.maniahub.com/topic/4771-s ... ent=251341 and Yesterday. FB is closed so I can't link! Considering how busy Thorpe has been I don't think 2 in a week is especially high to be honest)

Had a few maintenance issues today wasn’t open the majority of the day. Was running one cart in the time it was open but to be honest I don’t think it was anything significant.

Stealth is down again. Saw complaints yesterday about it not running at all, then it's listed as closed today.

Given the comments above from about the same time last year, I wonder if it's having its mid-season service?

After years of hearing that Stealth has three trains and never believing it, I finally saw the third train yesterday! All the carriages were seemingly back together and lined up alongside each other in the maintenance shed.

Plus also got to watch them do a ride shut down from what looked like an aborted launch. After requesting everyone move back from the station gates and clearing staff, they had to roll the train forwards then backwards, presumably detaching it from the catch car, before station staff were let back in to release the restraints of the guests stuck on the train. Maintenance were brilliantly fast to respond and took about 5 minutes from the fault to occur to them having the ride back in operation again.

When they announced they would move them forwards slowly and what sounded like them saying, "I'm sure you won't mind", I had hoped they were going to launch them knowing it would roll back. But alas, not this time!
