:shock: What a ride this is going to be. Looks amazing but i can see alot of people being disapointed with a 10 second ride, i know if i had been Q-ing for hours and it only lasted that long i would probably feel disapointed. Shoots over the top fairly quick aswell, unlike the other tophats over the world, they seem to crawl over them. :)


As long as people are satisfied by the ride and come off like, 'wow!' then i'm not sure they will complain about it being short. Only people who think it's rubbish and compare it to Kingda Ka will complain i think. They would be a right idiot though, you can't compare Stealth to Kingda Ka really :roll:

The GP are very fickle, they come off a ride and are like "Wow! that was the best ride ever!" but a couple of weeks later it will be "it was good but a bit short"

Yer, ive herd so many people on Rita saying "OMG this is amazing" as they are going round and then as they hit the breaks say "you not telling me thats it", I feel people will think its a top class ride but to short just like Oblivion and Rita.

OMG That 8th videos got me extremely excited, i cant get over how fast it is, it makes me think at times that the video has been speeded up, thats just how fast its looking lol . Owell, with it being a short ride it dosent look like we will be Q-ing to long lol, not for a 10 second ride any ways. Its hard to believe theres actualy breaks on the break hill as you shoot over it like lightening :shock: :D

29 seconds shurley will be including the slow craw back to the station, once you have hit the breaks you can say the ride has ended realy as theres not going to be much excitement from turning 2 corners lol. Still if the ride it extremely shocking and breath taking it might just get the UKs no1 top spot :)

It has a chance but what it's competing against has earned the top spot and definately deserves it :D I think people will either think, 'wow :shock:' and then 2 seasons later just be, 'oh yeah Stealth :roll:.' Like Colossus, nobody thinks that's a big deal anymore. Or it could be like Nemesis. First season, 'That was great :D!.' Then a few seasons later, 'I still love that coaster Stealth as much as when i first rode it!'
Once we've ridden it a good few times over a good few years, we can see which we think is better and can say whether we think it's worth UK's No.1. :D

Erm the public (and me) still can't get enough of Colossus and I bet many Southeners would call it the best ride in the UK.

I'll re-phase it :D
Not as many people see Colossus as a big deal anymore. Not like it was before.

/ Erm Well I live in essex and everyone at my school thinks colossus is the worlds best coaster and so is nemesis inferno, and once they've seen stealth they will think oh my god the UK has the worlds best coaster. The GP in essex only seem to go to thorpe park with a few exceptions of people.

Oh right, i guess it might still be a big favourite. I take back what i said. Ok, i just basically mean that (IMO) Stealth will either be a coaster where first season everybody/lots of riders are like, 'oh yeah this rules' etc then a few seasons later, 'oh yeah that one, what's it called again, Stealth?:roll:' Or it could be like Nemesis where people love it just as much as when they first rode it. :D

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 right at the top for about 15 mins, until an engineer went to the top and pushed the train by hand!

Dont believe me? Have a look for yourself!

Lets hope this happens to stealth! :P

/ That was old news it has happened at least 4 times to TTD already, and it is very highly unlikely it will happen to stealth as TTD and KK are on a much larger scale so they will obviously encounter problems. TTD was closed early this season as it was not going at sufficient speed and by my count it has got stuck 5 times.
