I think that rita offers a different experience to the american ''top hat'' intamins and in some ways the launched potential energy is more effectivley used and does not drain as fast- the push lasts though-out the ride!
This time next year we will have another couple of launched coasters in the uk and that cannot be a bad thing for enthusiasts!
I agree there, but disagree with lots of the other posts.
Rock 'n' Roller Coaster at DLP to Top Thrill Dragster
Ones a dark ride, ones not. The GP wouldnt immediately say they are similar, because of this.
Does it really matter that there are two coasters in the UK that do *almost* the same thing?
No we never said it did. Well i didnt
These coasters will get compared to a certain extent i think. Both are at tussauds parks, and both feature launches. This is the thrill for the GP, the launch, they dont care about airtime, positive Gs and laterals. The launch is the main buzz for the public, and when stealth comes along it will be the same, this will be the main buzz. Im not saying this is a bad thing that they are similar, but im just saying that because of this similarity they will get compared. People will see both are launched coasters, and will compare the launches to each other. Have you not seen all the american people comparing all there rocket coasters. Storm runner, Xcelerator, TTD, Kingda Ka!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! They are all compared in one way or another. Kingda Ka is better than TTD because it launches 8mph faster in less time. Storm runner is better than the others because it goes upside down. Xcelerator is better because it was the first, and does not need to go ridiculously fast to provide a thrill. Even though it does go ridiculously fast :lol: Anyway i hope i made my point, the launches will be compared probably. If i am wrong i will accept i am wrong.
Anyway just to make it clear i love the look of both rides :D I love Ritas layout, much better than any other rockets, apart from Kanonen. But the Stealth will be a huge thrill climbing and dropping 200 feet. <<< Not a stratacoaster i dont think btw :roll:
