Aww thats boring, Me thinks a Booster Bike would be awesome next to loggers leap. However, as Alton has that bloody height restriction they should get some tall flat rides, like a S&S drop tower, like Apocalypse, mulit dimensional, rplace detonator with one of those. Im sure i heard on the grapevine...

No worries, Adz. Yer Stealth. umm, Was anyone else slightly dissapointed with the Logo, Doesnt really fit in with the Amity themeing does it? It looks a bit too futureistic in my eyes, on the other hand Ritas logo could have been a bot more Cavemanised (just totally made that word up)! Why on gods n...

Thanks for the reply Symone. I see where ur coming from, I was just saying that if my Name and Address was on a website then i would go mad, but thats just me i guess. (Plus i was oblivious to websites like that) I totally agree with ppl trying to know things first, for example, i only found the vid...

Wow, Like a lamb to the slaughter there! Firstly i was just putting my opinion across, and nothing was aimed directly at you Adz. Secondly, AGAIN was asking a simple question and got patronising answers! Sorry but i thought forums were for voicing your opinion. Obviously on this one its different! O...

Thanks for replying, is that 100% certain, coz on the stealth animation on their site, the train came out of the station, onto the catch car and to the lights and then launched!

Hey guys, I have a Question, When Stelth is gonna launch is it gonna roll forward out of the station to traffic lights before launch or is it gonna launch straight from station like Rita? I Hope it follows TTD and Kingda Ka by taking you out of the station a bit before, it would totally add to the s...

OMG just looking around on the net i came across this, When top thrill dragster launches it needs to be between 119 MPH and 121 MPH. On this fine day in 2005 it didnt get enough momentum to make it over the crest. Naturally one would think that it would then roll back, NOPE! The bugger got stuck rig...

Ummm, Being a Oakwood fan i am undecided on my views on this matter. Oakwood have one of the best woodies in the world and definately the best water ride in the UK. I have an awful lot of respect for Hydro, and stand by my comment on "seatbelts dont open themselves.", That was a bit of bad luck whic...

Well it would appear that stealth has had its first sucessfull run, on Friday at 19:00 hrs the train was tested and returned to the station safely! OMG how exciting is that! I personally am not scared to go on any ride but the first to scare me was RITA, purely because of the launch, however Stealth...

Looking at the construction archive, it would appear that the cars came already themed. I thought the same when i saw the red cars arrive at thorpe. Lets hope they look as sexy as the Rita ones do! lol

Thanks for the reply dude, that would make sense. I have been lucky enough to ride Top Thrill Dragster and what you were saying about "you hearing that Kingda Ka sometimes rolls back", thats true. In the queue line for TTD the are numberous signs saying "Occasionally the train will not clear the top...

yo

Thanks for your reply dude. i totally agree with what u r saying, Thorpe has the rides that Alton Towers are not allowed due to their stupid height restrictions (stupid villagers!) In response to your Nemesis vs Nemesis Inferno fact there is only 2.5 MPH difference between them both, but i think Nem...

Guys you are all missing the point, we shouldnt be arguing about Xcelerator, or Top Thrill Dragster and so on, we are discussing Stelth at TP not any other launched coaster! We sould be greatful that the Tussauds Group are deciding to put a Top Hat coaster in the UK, and All you critics would be lyi...
