Works fine for me.

Animation could have been better, it suffers from the usual awful 'sped-up coaster simulation syndrome'

Right it is still not working. So lets get this clear, you go on to the Flash thing link , click install, and then a little movie comes up with this silver rectange spinning around. And it say Macromeda Flash has installed. Then you restart your computer and click on the animation on the website.


Yip :wink:

You're not wrong there!

I'd say if that were the real ride it'd be pulling near on 7gs at the bottom of the hill!

Personananally I think this is the best coaster animation I've ever seen. Remember the Colossus one a few years ago?

Its a coaster animatio, not the latest Pixar animation. personally I'm not to bothered about watching it. I know what the things going to do, and if I want to get a representation of Stealth, I'll watch a Top Thrill Dragster video.

Whats the deal with its loading and stuff again, will it be running 2 trains with a 3rd in standby?

Is it just going to be that it begins to load next train when the other has left the station and wait to unload when you come back until next train has left, or is there something a bit more clever going on, i heard a twin loading and unloading platform or something somewhere? so it can be simulataneous.

Looks in pic above like simple (slow) loading and unloading all in same place and a maintainance track.

I hope somebody understands my post and i explained my thoughts ok

I think Rita is the same, I believe its so it wont get stuck on flat track, if the launch for whatever reason was not powerfull enough the train would always return to the station, or atleast come back as far as the brake fins on the track just outside the station. I am told Kingda Ka has been known to do a false start without enough power, it comes back to the station and is normally launched again straight after.

Any ideas on the Loading and Unloading of this beauty then?

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 crest, do not be alarmed the train will return safely and slowly to the station"............ (plop). Luckily (thank the lord) our train cleared it first time, but the train did fall back at least 1 out of 10 times. Lets hope Stealth doesnt have that problem!

All launched coasters have inclined launch track. This is so that the cable which pulls the train along as it launches can roll back along the groove in the track into the station to attach to the next train. Plus of course helps when a rollback takes place.

Rollbacks are not a problem, They are apparantly one of the best things on tophat rocket coasters. I for one badly want to be in a stealth rollback.

The station is exactly the same as Rita's meaning the loading will be exactly the same too. :)

^ The reason for having an inclined launch track is exactly what he said. It also means you dont need anything to push the train back towards the station if it does roll back. It can be stopped on the launch by the Copper alloy fins, and then can roll back smoothly and slowly.

I also want to be in that train. :D Roll backs look awesome. :D

Found on Southparks? :P


But yeah, good news. Hopefully this should be a lot better than the Rita one as they have had a lot more time to prepare.
