Just got home from Alton Towers arrived on park just before 9. Took a slightly different approach and decided to do the whole park (major rides) before queuing for the smiler. Asked about smiler fast tracks at 2pm and they had sold out so braved the 2hour stated que time and entered the que at 4pm. ...

B5417 Diversion

Just been onto towers website to get post code for my sat nav. Website says to follow diversion signs for the last part of the journey and to not use the B5417. Anybody know where the diversion goes and how long extra it would roughly take ?

The Smiler - Marketing [May Contain Spoilers]

I can't see this being the only advert for the smiler. We had all that expensive lighting a few weeks back, yes they made a YouTube video of the track with it. But they must of filmed it with the smiler in operation. I predict we will see some footage incorporated into an advert of some kind.
