A B&M Flying coaster, known to be the world's first "proper" flying as Stealth in the US is seemingly not really classed as a proper flying coaster. This ride gives you the essence of flying, built in 2002 seems a long time ago now. Air's max speed reaches 47mph and a max. height of 66ft. Air is the first roller coaster to strap you in sitting in a chair then flipping you onto your stomach, forwards riding under the track. Once you set of from the station its just you and the air! Upside down and sideways under tunnels and down slopes you will go with air.

I feel this ride pioneered the future of costers. It was built way before the time. I think also that people dismiss it as old and slow. Untill you ride it you can't make an opinion! It is great!
