Stealth at Great America

Does anyone have any really detailed pictures of Stealth, including the station and themeing?

I need them to make a recreation for RCT2.

Websites are good too!

This is where Google's image search may help you (click here for a search I did for you).

If you really want an accurate recreation of Stealth, make sure your attraction only dispatches once every five minutes. Have fun.

I believe Stealth is a clone of Batwing, and here is a good pic of Batwing: http://www.rcdb.com/installationgallery1089.htm?Picture=9

If you haven't rode Raging Bull in the back row you haven't lived. The feeling on that first drop cannot be explained in words!

Stealth and Batwing aren't really the same at all. Unlike Batwing, Stealth has a larger straight section of track before the lift hill, and that is for access to the transfer track. Also Stealth doesn't have dual loading stations, and it also doesn't have the two inline twist and the final helix. Plus the final brake run is between the lift and the station. While Batwing and X-flight have dual loading station a two inline twists a helix and the final brake run on the other side of the station. X-flight and Batwing are clones while Stealth is the only one of that style.

I haven't rode either one. That is why I wrote, "I Believe" not "I know"

Like some already mentioned, Stealth has twin corkscrews not inline twists. It also lacks the helix that both X-Flight and Batwing have. But note that X-Flight and Batwing are the rides that were inspired by Stealth and are clones of each other. Stealth was the world's first true flying coaster when it opened in 2000, a whole year earlier than the other two Flying Dutchmen.

well i have ridden X-flight fun ride excrutiating wait times. I have to say that the two corkscrews at the end of stealth are probly much more comfortable than the 2 inline twists on x-flight. I rode it early in it's life so it may have smoothed out by now but i remember whiping through those tight inline twist at a uncomfortable speed.

I do have some pictures at home, when I get back, I'll email them to you, they might help.

As for the design of the two - exactly what X-Flight were you riding Dr.S? Whipped through the twists at uncomfortable speed? I always worry that X-Flight isn't going to make it through those twists it goes so slow through them. I thought the layout, pacing, and elements on Stealth were so far and above X-Flight, its not even funny. And when I was there, it was dispatching once every 2 minutes or so, not too bad compared to X-Flight.

I think X-flight and Batwing would be a lot better. IMO, Stealth is rough and the corks are the worst part of the ride. But for being the first of its kind I guess it is good. But 2min dispatch? More like 5! Stealth dispatch is so slow...the second train has to wait on the brake run for like 3 minutes...

Also I have just added a PGA photo gallery to my site with some pretty good aerial shots from the Delta Flyers. You can see them here: http://www.coastersimulators.com/paramounts_great_america.htm
