Re: The Smiler

First ride today, and pre-ride i thought about this huge review i was going to ride.

I then rode this...................Its simply epic!

There are gripes but they go out the window completely due to the excellance of the ride itself. 10/10 well done AT!

Re: So... about SW8

Here's a controversial thought......Instead of spending roughly £15m-20M on another steel coaster for SW8......

They found anticipation is a key factor in ensuring a thrill and that they worked best when presented as stories or narratives Seriously? they paid scientists to work that out? I'd have told them th...
