Thankyou phil, i totally agree. Thats why i gave up arguing earlier. I hoped h would stop.
Stealth is exactly the same as Kinga Ka, with smaller statistics.
Stop acting like yo know so much, Stealth ISNT exactly the same with smaller statistics, get your facts right. Stealth has a 200 foot drop with a 90 degree turn going left, KK has a 450 foot drop or so, turning 270 degrees to the right! Now if they are the same, i will eat my own head!
Thorpe have not 'copied' anyone. You are just sounding like a fool when you say it
I agree with this aswell. :lol: Stealth is not copied, this layout is the standard Intamin rocket coaster layout it seems. It can be bought by any park, in different sizes. Companies always make a standard layout, that parks with less room, or less time to design a new layout according to the area, can build. It isnt copied.
Now if i could swear i would. This topic is getting incredibly annoying. :lol:
Lazy, but clever
Lazy? Is building a new coaster, the sort of thing a lazy park would do? Look, parks build rides for their pulling power, their appearance, how they will draw the GP in! The design of stealth suits the UK public through and through. Why should thorpe not use this design, when it will work wonders for them? Its huge, its fast, its got amazing acceleration, its an overall huge ride, which is something the UK is lacking. The only ride this size we have in the UK is pepsi max, and thats getting old now. This is gonna sell to the UK GP. It can be marketed easily. I know for a fact, when my friends see the irst adverts, or the first pictures of this ride, they will go WOW, and will either say, "i wanna go and ride it" or "Hell, i wouldnt ride that thing if my life depended on it. I would cack me pants!" Its this type of ride the UK really needs to get, and IMO thorpe are doing the UK theme park industry a huge favour. This will set the standard of rides built in the UK for the next few years, who cares if it isnt original enough, unique enough. It is special for the UK, Europe even!
Come on, ive heard people say thunderlooper was great, that was far from a new concept. Far from original. But it was new for the UK, thats all that mattered. The GP had experienced nothing like it in the UK, so it was a great step. A great experience for them, as stealth will be for us.
Most of us have not been fortunate enough to ride any rocket coasters apart from rita! We dont know whether all the top hats are crap, or great. I am still young, only 15 years, but im planning to visit loads of parks when im older. I already have contacts in the roller coaster community in:
so far. Most of these people have experienced different things, different rides. In fact, i know one person, who has ridden around 500 coasters in America, and he says the top hat on TTD is one of the most intense elements he has ever ridden. So, you can say anything you like about other tophats or elements, but YOU shouldnt expect people to agree with you, or believe you. People believe who they want to believe. Now my opinion is that you burn.e have experienced 1 top hat, the first outside top hat ever made,on the first Intamin rocket ever made. 1. So IMO you cant say that top hats are tame, a bad experience. You have to have ridden at least 2 before you can say that. I mean, the corkscrews on Corkscrew are crap IMO, but the corkscrews on nemesis are amazing. See, elements change from ride to ride. This again, is just my opinion. I have not said your opinion counts for nothing, but this is just what i think.
EDIT: Rant over. I just hope no one is too overwhelmed by this post and decides to ban me. :lol:
