Nope, I remember them advertising it as 'Now Floorless'. I think it opened in 2006 and became floorless in 2007 :P

Haha I'm not getting edgy :) All I'm saying is, with a new ride and stuff its possible that in the future when the smiler is a bit older and when they want to attract more visitors its a definite possibility!

Except for them having to rebuild the entire station to accommodate floor less trains

A LOT cheaper than building an entirely new roller coaster. And they wouldnt need to reconstruct the entire station, just the floors and surrounding areas

Just a question guys. I was wondering if the plaza is actually still happening because I think I read before that it wasn't - which is a bit of a disappointment? Recently I been doubting it more as there doesn't seem to be much room. :moj

Thanks Lewis97

I think Adz mentioned that the idea wasnt happening anymore which is a shame! It was either that or a the walkway over near the cobra/batwing element

I know it's a little off topic but I heard that oblivious colour was originally going to be electric pink?!

Alton towers would never make a roller coaster with a colorful track, unless its a family ride (sonic) it would stand out like a sore thumb

Yes I thought that this is VERY strange and I meant for the restraints and logo

I don't believe it by the way and told the person it would be fake info
