Stealth Rollercoaster Top Hat Element

Touch the sky on one of the UK’s tallest roller coasters

Beyond the unforgettable hydraulic launch system, Stealth’s iconic steel roller coaster track reaches 62.5m into the air, for a bird’s-eye view of the whole theme park. The track blends with the colour of the sky, so riders feel like they’re at one with the clouds. 

At 205 ft high, the roller coaster flies slowly over the peak of the top hat. For an unexpected moment, you’ll experience incredible negative g-force as you glide like a bird... before plummeting back to earth!

Closer to the ground, another moment of weightlessness awaits, over the track’s final airtime hill. The magnetic brake run gives you just enough time to catch your breath, return to gravity and shout “Let’s go again!”.

Did you know? When Stealth opened in 2006, it was the fastest and tallest launch coaster in all of Europe!
