Wow...this looks cool, I hope they bring one to the states soon after...It still does not compare to X. I hope an X makes to the east coast next year. Who do you think will be the first to build a SW5 clone? It won't be SFMM casue they will have X.
I agree, it looks mighty short. I know, length does not always dictate a good ride, but there doesn't look like there is much to this ride. Hopefully everyone will love it, and we will start seeing Raptor/Montu-sized versions over here.
I think you guys are forgetting where this thing is. This won't be a Stealth clone, designed to fit on any flat land. This thing is built for the terrain at Alton Towers. I suspect it will be fabulous.

Unlike Stealth and X-Flight, this one focuses on acual flight instead of inversions. I don't understand how a ride's length affects it's potential, it's not a hypercoaster, this thing looks sensational!

Well, so much for this thing being a launched ride.
Remember, Nemisis is one of the the smallest B&M Invert, but considered by many folks to be the best. I can't wait to see how they theme this! SW5 will be great, looks like a lot of "flying" time by the renderings.

The one thing I don't like about stealth is that you are on your back so much. I want more of the flying feeling. This looks like it will interact more with the land and give you that flying feeling.
These seats, if they are accurate, look more comfortable in the foot area. Stealth tends to rub on my ankels. The stealth harnes is comfortable where this looks like a standard harnes. I hope that changes.
