Roller coaster rides: Red Force vs Stealth

Stealth vs Red Force: Roller coasters go head to head

Imagine Thorpe Park’s Stealth, but on steroids – Red Force is bigger, faster and better!

Passengers will experience CRAZY G-Force, as they’re taken from 0-110mph in just FIVE seconds across 880 metres of track (that’s equivalent to SEVEN football pitches by the way) – before VERTICALLY rocketing to the top of the 112-metre ride – which to put into perspective, is quite a lot taller than Big Ben.

Here’s how Red Force rollercoaster squares up to Thorpe Park’s, Stealth and some other tall things.

Despite having a similar design to Stealth, the height and speed difference is substantial.




As you can see, Stealth is no match for it’s new European rival.

So how about the tallest rollercoaster in the world?
