Having rode Stealth for the first time today, i thought it was a great ride, better than i expected with the launch and the drop. As someone already said i was abit dissapointed it didnt last very long for the time you que but still, its worth it for the experiance. :W Also i think the theming is fantastic and the sort of checking lockers to put your bags in and no there safe is a good idea.

That's my birthday! I was thinking about going that day. It would probably be kinda busy as i think alot of the schools down south aka me have broken up for easter. I will probably wait and go on easter sunday. It's open till 10pm that day. Don't think it will be too busy either. That's when i will probably go.

Its not Thorpe Park's fault at all. Simple teathing problems with the ride. I bet Thorpe Park are just as annoyed as you are.

Unless anybody knows for sure ib Stealths case, i'm sure on a new ride after the 1st few weeks of full time operation it needs some thorough checks and inspections again, I think its been reasonably reliable so far.

H ha ha ha ha i can walk around the park without worrying if me wallets gonna be pinched then! woop woop!

Yer i was only dicking about when i said it would be out of operation, it will be out of operation, but that is pureley due to maintenence checks after the first week of operation!

Im going on the 3rd! it will prob be really busy but as long as i get to ride Stealth (in the voice of Catherine Tata) " I AINT BOVVERED"!

No- Thorpe have banned any cameras. I think you get chucked out the park if you're using one on the ride, probably wrong though.

Not been to TP since 2004. Looking forward to next year hopefully :)

You mean Thorpe Park have banned camera's on-rides right? This just applys to the bigger rides right e.g. Stealth, Colossus?

Also, anybody got an on-ride photo of Stealth. I would love to see what it looks like (the design).

You're not going to get chucked out the park for taking a camera on a ride!
