Re: The Smiler - General Discussion

Re: On-Ride Breakdown Experiences

It happened to us during school season, shows that it is still an issue, but something that is occurring less and less as the season progresses.

Re: On-Ride Breakdown Experiences

That also happened to Stan and me, they had to have engineers move the train in front of us. That suggests it was a possible parking issue.

How do you get accepted to film on rides? I have a GoPro and it would be nice to get some footage on the rides and attractions.

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

Considering the fire theme for the shed, perhaps the longer you stack in the shed the more intense the fire effects become? This would add more tension and would make it a lot less boring waiting in the tunnels.

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

It's not just Wicker Man that has that 'issue' with the chain lift, a fair few GCI's have a strange rocking motion from time to time.

The ride has improved as the season has progressed. I am not a fan of the yellow lighting in the projection room however.

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

It is a questionable debate because there was batching down at the old baggage area during my visit in school season on The Smiler. So it seems they would have enough staff to operate a single rider queue but not enough still for baggage.

That actually makes a lot of sense! I guess not all schools allow their students to just go off independently, thank you!

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions
