I am hoping that in a few years time they install something truly unique that Stealth, Collosus and NI can complement together, with a fantastic selection of flat rides to boot.
As am i. Thorpe Park need a unique coaster that is not necessarily record breaking, but definately throws one heck of a ride at you. We have already heard rumours for a 2008 coaster, lets hope TP really take our breaths away :D.
It all depends how you look at Stealth, Ground breaking world best ride, probably not, but a worthy addition to a rapidly expanding/improving park including making one of the finest themed areas in the uk even better, i would say yes.
Amen to that. There are people who will see this coaster and just skip to the next one not really recognising it. Then there are people (like me) who will see it and really appriciate what value it will be/is to TP and the UK. TP has rapidly been growing since 2001 and this is just adding to it. They have done a fantastic job with the theming and really making it look great. I mean, there are alot of better coasters out there but how many have a theming like Stealth and are in a brilliant themed area? I mean come on, if you think the theming aint great, think again. Just look at those trains! :P
Realy cant wait to ride this now, im going to be so nervouse when im sitting there waiting to launch :D
I agree. When we drove past it last week i said to myself, "Look at that beast. It's intimidating from a kilometre away!"
What does everyone think about the article on Coaster Kingdom? A complete Stealth bashing? I mean, could the get any more negative? Personally, I think it's a little unjust - I mean, as I say above - Stealth will be a good ride for the park if not the world. Coaster Kingdom also completely blast Alton Towers in their magazine back in October. They are really negative arent they?
Well everybody is entitled to their own opinion and if thats the way they want to show it, fair enough but from what they have said, i dont think they like TP :lol:. Besides, Stealth has not been built to break records, it's been built to expand the park and give it a better variety. I mean look, they have an Intamin 10 looping coaster, a B&M inverter, a backwards in the dark coaster (i know, it isnt that good :P) and now an Intamin accelerator. That's a good variety for a small park IMO.
Just look at the colour of the top hat, it's made to blend in with the sky.
I love the way they have done that :D.
have you seen how they put it into the map looks great im getting very exited now
It fits in well with the map. All of TP's maps are great.
Jesus, take that Rita!
Yeah Rita, can you handle that? :P
Stealth? I mean. WHY?!
There was some discussion on this back when the name released. You may be able find it if you look around 15 (give or take) pages back. It says why Stealth was called Stealth.
Getting very excited now! :pelvic:
