Re: The Smiler - General Discussion

Whats the park queues and specifically the Smiler queue like on Sundays? I'm going to the park next Sunday and only get to go once a year so I don't really want to be standing in a 2 hour queue and not get to do as much as I want to eg. get on all the big coasters at the park. I don't really want to...

Re: Will TH13TEEN be built bigger and better by another theme park??

I'm sure there is another one in america at Busch Gardens Williamsburg with Verbolten, granted it's made by Zierer but it's definitely a freefall drop :)

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

This is just looking more awesome every day! The cars going round the track is exactly what I imagined  :D

My only bone to pick is the new entrance...... is that it? It's a box and a billboard? Doesn't look much compared to the other ride entrances around the park  :|

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

I do hope that they allow you to walk about under the marmaliser between the queue line fencing, would be such a waste of space, I do find it funny though how the queue works? will that be it?? Also as mentioned before in another post a while back the fencing being so far away from the edges of the ...

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

I don't think there is any kind of plaza. There was supposed to be an area where you could walk amongst the ride but that was when the ride was planned to be slightly higher.  Where the pit is, there should have been a pathway going under the knot, but obviously there isn't room for that now a...

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

How do you think the queue line will be laid out? The same as it has always been or do you think it will be changed a bit? We were meant to have the Plazza where people could walk about underneath the ride but it doesn't seem as if we will be getting this anymore :/ Can anybody come up with a plan o...

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

So which of the 5 legs is still to be added and where is it going to be built? I'm stuck at Uni all day so don't have the time to go looking at the plans  :( The whole ride is looking top-notch and I can't wait to see how much bigger it will look once the lift hills are in :) Do you think we wi...

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

Do you think they will still have the close call concrete theming just before the Cobra-Roll and the Batwing and after the airtime hills? The ride seems to sit lower at that end than it originally looked on the plans with the concrete ditch so do you think they will still have these implemented in t...

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

My pictures taken an hour or so ago On going digging on the vertical lift trench and more footers: https://pbs.twimg.com/media/BGiTzUYCYAEQxwb.jpg I thought the marmaliser would have been much bigger than this but I think it's only because the ride dwarfs it :/ When you look at the size of the digg...

Re: The Smiler Train Discussion

Saw the 'I like Trains' picture on the construction forum, so I spent 10 minutes to make this masterpiece! http://i45.tinypic.com/303s.png Can you guess how I feel about the ride trains? Should have turned the guys smile into a sad face too  :D One thing I would have liked to have seen is the ...

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

Got to say the hypnosis illusion on the back of those trains is going to make so many people dizzy and sick, not something I want to experience while on this ride! I've never been sick after a ride and I don't think I ever will be but those that do are going to be even worse off on this ride, and I...
