should i be concerned that the TP website has stated for a week that stealth is not in operation? Only im going wednesday and its a two hour trip, but the park has had stealth open for the last three days with the website saying its closed, do they have intentions of closing it some time soon? help my fragile mind please, it hurts! :?

Yes, the same problem it has every time: its made by intamin, who, after 5 years and a dozen rides still can't get their accelerator coasters to work reliably :evil:

It's embarassing to be honest. You would imagine Intamin would have realised what keeps going wrong and amend it. But it appears unamendable, at least in the short term. Unless they are going to some more major 'fix' in the closed season so that 2007 can be a much better year for the ride!

Stealth probably is open, but as the downtime is so patchy and impossible to tell when its coming, Thorpe have taken the safe option of saying its closed.

Sometimes stealth doesnt get enough speed and goes back that would be soooo scary...falling backwards 205ft (I would proberly pass out)
Yes and all thorpe parks rides have C*** Reliability and that it has said stealth is shut from wednesday and was working on saturday but the site still says it is shut 6 days later.

It depends if Thorpe want to advertise that the ride is open on the website.
