I rode it the second day the park opened- amazing! I live in New Jersey, and I've ridden KK, and personally I think that stealth was more fun the KK. I felt like the acceleration was just so much more powerful on Stealth and the airtime at the top is unbeatable. I rode it when the line was about 3 minutes, so I got in about 6 rides. One of my top 5 definitely.

Mini Kingda Ka + Xccelerator it seems. I'd rather have either of the lineup. I'm glad at least it's a fun new toy across the pond.

I dunno. It looks just like another Intamin clone.... But acording to metal432 it's great! So good for all of the people in Europe! I wish I could ride a rocket coaster........:(

Stealth is closed and will be closed until the middle of next week according to Thorpe Park's website.

If you ask me, these rocket coasters are more hassle than they're worth.

Colossus and Tidal Wave have also been closed at Thopre Park for the past week, which leaves Nemesis Inferno as the only decent ride in the park.

I would be seriously annoyed if I travelled to Thorpe to find their 3 main rides shut.

Stealth looks pretty sweet. I would like to ride it, but that will never happen.

Its not a clone... Its "one of a kind" as KK as the twist like TTD does... Where as Stealth doesnt ;)

this has to be the most boring coaster ever.

I hate to say it, but I agree. If this was the first ever rocket coaster, it would be different. But Stealth is a step backwards from all the other rocket coasters out there. It's the smallest and has absolutely no elements. It's an outrage.

Shame on you Thorpe Park.

You know, it's not like that they have all the space and money that American parks do...it's a big deal for England.
