I want to avoid the whole Rita/Stealth debate again as they are clearly meant to be very different experiences, and rightly so. But could you detail the main differences between them without being bias towards one or the other? I am intrigued! Also, how long did Stealth last from launch - brakes and what was the best part?
I'll give you one of Rita and Xcelerator (same statistics).
The initial acceleration on Xcelerator is amazing. Highlight of the ride - it's just off so fast. Ritas is alot slower to hit out of the station but up the launch straight gets really intense (apparently more
intense, 4.7 G's as opposed to 4.5?). The next bits of each ride are the low points IMO. Going up a top-hat is just like an extended launch run but looking towards the sky, and - well, your just truning a corner of Rita. Now, on a top hat going over the top you can get the most amazing floater air-time, and this accompanied with the view of water of Stealth will no doubt be amazing, and Ritas first air-time hill is very intense and snappy with a great combo of G's. Going down the top-hat is crazy. Its no Oblivion, but with a lap-bar you come out of your seat and its just a frantic experience - I wouldn't really think it'll be too amazing with a OTSR though, unfortuntley. Oh well. And then, I dunno what the air-time hill on Stealth will be like, and then Rita carries on as above, so yeah. There :). Basically, on top-hats with such statistics as Stealth, it has a great combo of snappiness/sharpness and beign gracefull, whilst Rita has her killer differencial + and - G's.
Both amazing types of rides!
