I very much doubt it as we are nearly at Christmas. I reckon it will be an on ride video. A 5% off voucher, A chance to win something, or perhpas a chance to meet the developers at Thorpe.

Anyway I think that it might be
Amity Speed Rally or
Amity Hot Rod Ralley or
Something else Amity Related

:D

*stokywolf :wink:
Well with Rita they did a non stop test run for over 18 or so hours so i was told. Rita might of only had testing that intense because they were trying to open it as quickly as they could especially with the time span from construction completeing and ride opening date.I don't know if they would do the same with Stealth or not unless its a requirment by Health and safety.

I presume they did the theming for Rita as well but cant find anything on their site.
This may be a silly question but were Ritas cars red before the design was put on? (dont know if the covering on the cars is blue or if they were origionaly blue?)

One car was blue and the other was purple. I just want to see the launch lights because thats what builds up the suspense on Rita. I wonder if Stealth will have a launch sound like Rita's? (Keep your heads back and hold on tight were counting down blah blah blah Go go goo!) One of the main things that makes a ride brilliant is the themeing so lets hope that its brilliant unlike another rocket coaster. *Cough*Rita*Cough*. ;)

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

I would say he was lying. Unless he was having a nice evening stroll outside TP, with a digital camera on him, and he caught about 4 seconds of the train going the top hat, which would be very hard to do because you would have to get the camera out and then take a movie, he would be telling the truth. He could of had his mobile handy, but there wouldn't be enough time to take a film.

How about just not saying anything next time until you've actually got the video. Sounds like complete and utter bollocks to me.

Smell something?

What do people think the new logo will look like? Do we think it will have the similar shap to TP's past rides? Or mayeb something more somewhat original?

I think that it will have the top hat in the logo. Like the shadow in the background. If not it will be a car with flames or something more to do with cars.

Anyone know about the Premier Screaming for Annual Pass holders on the night of Friday 14th March? Read on ATA that it was happening.but I don't know anything other than what I've just written.?

I'll be there. 8) I would say Boy Permitting, but if you're not willing to get the day off work, Craig, I'll see you on the Saturday there. 8)
