Towering some 205 feet above Thorpe Park, Stealth is the fastest roller coaster in the UK. Originally, it launched riders up to a top speed of 80 miles per hour in 2.3 seconds. Subsequent modifications, however, have reduced this time to just 1.9 seconds.

The coaster’s circuit is simplistic, with the initial launching sending the trains to the top of the main tower. They then plummet back down towards the ground, racing over another, smaller hill before returning to the station.

An Epic Ride

This is an epic ride, you can't deny it. The acceleration is one of the most incredible feelings I have ever experienced, and in those few seconds at the top, the view is breathtaking. This is definitely one of the highlights of a visit to Thorpe Park. A ride in the rain is painful, and although riding in the front is brilliant, be prepared to come off with several splattered insects on your face.

Although a quick ride, this doesn't detract from the thrill, acceleration and G force you experience from this ride. We thought it felt a bit faster than last time we rode and I see that there has been a speed increase and the ride now goes from 0-80mph in 1.8 seconds! Ride in the rain and and it feels like you are having an acupuncture session on your face. All good and very fast fun!
