Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

Baco looks amazing. back on topic tho, I really hope they sort out these "teething issues" pretty soon. I doubt there was actually any teething problems at all. I think simply it was not fully complete yet ( as you can see from the queue lines and painting etc) teething problems were a pr...

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

i think the station is going to be pretty hard to photograph tho. I'm looking forward to seeing pictures of trains being placed on track.

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

It's been a while since i looked at the plans for the smiler.

does anyone know what kind of paving they will be using? Will it be the standard crazy paving that most of the park seams to have?

I'd love to see it painted or themed. kinda like spinball but better.

Re: Quick Questions

Quick question about 2013 disabled tickets.

Ok so i'm wondering if anything has changed for the 2013 season.

I know a few people mentioned about new rules for wristband wearers last year. Is there anything different this year?

Re: 2013 Season - General Discussion

Ah man thats a shame to hear about stuff being neglected. Give me a jet wash and i'll go wash coasters any day. Seams like most of the stuff that you mentioned seams to be down to lazyness as cleaning something doesn't take alot of effort.

Re: staff training video

all of those sound great.

There's not alot of behind the scenes stuff out there apart from the magic factory. Even the park life series cant be found online anymore.

staff training video

i've just watched the magic factory for about the 20th time and noticed part of it mentions a staff training video. Is this on the internet anywhere to watch or download? Do they still do the training videos today?

Re: Burger Kitchen Inside Photos

Theming would have been good. I agree with it looking really high street-ish.

Re: The Smiler- Mobile Game Application

I think the spinner is rigged IMO.

i haven't won anything on that thing and i've tryed countless times. even when its slows all the way down and looks like its going to stop on a win but then some how manages to click over to nothing.

Re: What direction should the music of Alton Towers go in

i was just thinking about this earlier. In my honest opinion some of the music from various attractions is quite cheep sounding. This might be just because i'm a musician but it sounds like it has been composed on cheep instruments or in poor quality recording studios. one example is oblibions music...
