Re: SW8

Do you think a ride like Wonder Mountain would work as I think its the way rides are going? (Could not be bothered to read last 30 odd pages so sorry if all ready asked/debated) as it would be a good ride for the whole family.

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

Edit: also, I think the giggler will just be a cloud of green/yellow mist that the train goes through, as it can't actually 'do' anything, it will just be SFX. think it is suppose to be laughing which is why its the giggler. :D I don't get ...

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion
