Got 2 rides on Stealth today, with low expectations (we know its short) it was better than expected.
I knew the area was themed well, that was obvious from all the pictures, its very good infact, when everything is running, including Tidal Wave (which was not, no water) the whole area is going to look fantastic, it was quiet at the park with many rides out of action (powercut yes), Stealth was very reliable on its first day though, and no rollbacks :( :(
The ride itself was very good, the launch is impressive and i doubt re-riding will lessen the effect too much, if anything the second time was more enjoyable but still impressive, the top hat is great, being that high up with no track to be seen is a pleasant experience especially as get a bit of airtime, coming down and airtime hill into brakes was my favourite, if the restraint is loose enough you do lift up on the brakes which are pretty sharp.
Although its short it packs lots in and each feature is very memorable, a superb addition to Thorpe, the location over the lake is also stunning.
I'm not going to say its amazing because that makes people expect more, go ride it with a open mind and you should be pleasantly surprised.
To sum up its worth a ride, and some more.
The only problem i had was when i got to the top, i thought, this is very impressive but whats twice this height got to be like, a trip to the USA is an expensive way to find out, which given the constraints the Park has (ie not 400ft), i'm happy they built this so called "mini version", it packs a punch in its own right and its a bolder move than people give them credit for, they could of not bothered at all:wink:
