Stealth The Ride Experience

Ever wanted to ride in a Formula 1 car and feel the power? Well… you can’t, but Stealth at Thorpe Park is a close second (…maybe third). BUT what we know for sure, is that this iconic ride is packed with thrills and adrenaline-inducing moments and is the fastest roller coaster in the UK! So, it’s pretty impressive.

Feel the brake horsepower of TWO Formula 1 cars on a giant acceleration coaster, we definitely think it’s Thorpe Park’s most intense ride.

Built with an impressive hydraulic launch ride system, the steel rollercoaster has a track that spans 62.5m high into the air – giving you a panoramic view of the entire Thorpe Park. Interestingly enough, the track is coloured the same as the sky… so riders can feel like they’re amongst the clouds as they enjoy a sensation of weightlessness.

As you move slowly 205ft into the sky, reaching its peak at the very top, you’ll feel the spectacular negative G-force. Before suddenly dropping back to earth, but it doesn’t stop there… As you return to the earth, a feeling of weightlessness will wash over you, as you reach the final uphill. With a magnetic brake leaving you enough time to collect yourself before hurtling you back up for one last hurrah.

An incredible ride and experience for thrillseekers, that will leave your heart racing and have you coming back for more. It may not be for little ones and those who have just started discovering the joys of fast and powerful rollercoasters, but it makes for a fantastic ride for those who love the adrenaline rush. Whether you begin your day with the incredible drop or end it on a high – it makes for a funtastic family day out.

It’s also the perfect ride for those looking to challenge their inner adrenaline bug – can you hack it? If you have older kids who love roller coasters, then this is a family ride you call can enjoy!
