Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

Just an educated guess that The Smiler will be open on Saturday. Although the Resort aren't confirming an opening date - they're very much playing it on a day to day basis. If you don't quite understand that - basically yesterday, they said it won't be open today and today they've said it won't be o...

Regarding to Spinball moving - it's only the Sonic Contract running out that would result in change.

Re: Thoughts & Views of the Recent Posting Guidelines

This is an obvious issue that the team are discussing.

Thankfully - the ride will be open next week, which should put an end to all discussion on construction and marketing. Everyone will just be Getting Corrected ;)

We're looking to expand our media section with the new site - it's a possibility if it has enough demand.

Hey Mabalzich - Your photo was removed due to the nature in which it was taken. Unfortunately TowersTimes cannot condone taking photos whilst riding roller coasters - it's simply not safe. It's highly unlikely that permission was given for photography whilst riding Oblivion and we do not want to enc...

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

This 'Disorientator' is sounding really promising. I think we've all got a picture in our head of what to expect. Hopefully the indoor section will be taken very slowly and create a 'pre-show' for the ride.

What would you like to see done differently with regards to features on the site? We will be creating a whole new experience when it comes to using the TT websit...

Re: People smoking outside of designated areas.

I recently visited the park with some friends, a few of us are smokers, me included. I disagree with smoking in a queue, however find the designated benches a bit daft. It's an open air park where it's only natural to light up. We would only smoke on paths whilst people went to the loo or between ri...

Th13teen...but Backwards?

After riding Th13teen last week - the ride is ageing well, the forest is filling out for the outside section and queue, along with the now iconic 'aged ride' theme taking shape, with mould and rotting on the actual themeing. Probably one of the first rides that it actually improves. It's obvious fro...

STOPtober

I've been smoking for over a year now and have decided that I don't want to rely on having a fag every day - So I am taking part in Stoptober. Many of my friends are keen to do this too, but obviously it's easier said than done. Are there any smokers on here who want to give up? Are you taking part ...
