Yes. In fact they'll be giving live updates, but I think they must be too caught up in the excitement because the live blog has yet to be updated :P

It's not open. It's closed to the public.

You can still queue for a ride that's closed. For that when it does open, you're at the front!

I love the sound of Oblivion entering the hole in the background in all these videos, it all seems to fit together rather nicely!  8)

Guys please stop with the poor quality posts!
Things like "Yayy" and "ooo that's cool", are unnecessary, it's why we have a thanks button.
I understand you are all excited, but please keep the topic clear of all the silly posts. Also if you have minor quick questions, please use the ShoutBox at the bottom of the main forum page.

Can we keep this topic for images and news from the site for the rest of the day please? I'm going to start removing any posts that I feel aren't adding to conversation, and I won't have the time to PM people about it. Otherwise this topic is going to be impossible to follow.

If you want to complain, then please do it here - http://forum.towerstimes.co.uk/towerstimes-news-your-views/thoughts-views-of-the-recent-posting-guidelines/ However please be aware that I'm monitoring the forums solo today, so responses will be very slow

JayTricky - Ah I see. What is causing people to queue today as opposed to other times it was testing?


The huge rumours and whisperings that it was open today. The fact that they said 'May' and it's the last day in May. That and the fact construction fences were took down yesterday and everything pointed to it being open today.

Those that have taken a gamble in going today will be very happy.

Looks like it might have JUST opened.

A YEAR OF WAITING. THE TIME HAS COME. SMILER IS OPEN. TIME TO GET CORRECTED!!!
