what i dont understand is why do they have to be so similar. they all shoot off down the track go straight up over the top hat and back down. fair enough Kingda Ka has that massive air time hill but like couldnt they revamp this very tiring layout. its only been out seems TTD and already it seems to be getting old? :oops:
I totally agree. Whatever happenned to originality? Whether its 200 or 500 feet - it's basically the same ride. For God's sake make it go inside the top hat so its more of a loop, or have a series of decreasing top hats and call it Lock Ness - or in fact anything different at all!
Much as I'm looking forward to Stealth and much as these rides are undoubtedly excellent, I can't help but feel the same amount of money could have been used to build something original at Thorpe (B&M Floorless anyone?), rather than yet another launched top hat.
Oh and Ketchup - what's Jimmy Saville doing in that fish hook photo?
