Re: Ride Downtime 2013

I have been on park today and can confirm that 13 is indeed closed. The Smiler closed for 'technical issues' at around 4:45 pm. The customer service que is massive right now!!

Re: The Smiler - General Discussion

I'm sorry to say that The Smiler was closed today at 16:45 for 'technical issues'. Was there today, many people dissapointed after having been told to leave the que after a 110 minute wait. :(

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

Just got back from towers. Phew! I won't post pictures as the others seem to have shown all activity. I must say, this thing is ready to go! Only about 2 areas of queue need painting, but that's about it. Queue screens were testing today. They show basically the 5 mind manipulating elements (as on ...

I for one care.

To some, money means nothing. To others, money is not so much "easy going" and is more valuable and rare.

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

People can't just book other days off work easily.

How can people get a refund if they booked a hotel elsewhere?

What about school exams?

We should get this trending on twitter more.

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

They told us it was coming, no, it wasn't a joke. They told us it was still coming, they told us we could smile always. Well turns out, some people want to smile NOW. I am planning to visit this weekend, will The Smiler be open?  The Alton Towers Resort has over 50 amazing rides and attractions...

Re: World Adventure Park - RCT3 Park.

The same name as my park that's on hiatus? Interesting... I liked the name of the park, but there is a slight difference, yours says theme park and my just says park and also yours is World ADVENTURE'S' not World ADVENTURE... The only difference is that one is grammatically correct (Jevaaaans) &...

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

Best post in a while! ;) I love the images! I have to agree, that bracket does seem a bit random, haha! Maybe for signage like in the game  ;) I really wish the game would work on my phone :( What's the signage in the game? I think they are referring to this: http://i.imgur.com/JhYAoIP.jpg Hop...

Re: Theme Park Logos & Promotional Graphics

Instant Mix, thanks for your suggestions. But I am only here to help people who need quick simple graphics done for the RCT3 game. Please do not judge me or my designs by the things found here, as I was trying to make them as fast as possible, but at the same time do the job.
