Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

I'll post a review for you. Lol well hopefully queue lines will be tolerable then. Best of luck with your test.

Re: The Smiler - Marketing [May Contain Spoilers]

The Smiler advert on ITV just, it didn't include the bit that said, opens 23rd May so possibly we shall see a new advert with a new date soon ??

If you look at about 0:40 seconds and on it does go VERY slow around that loop ! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dob53p4oOMQ

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

Not sure if it has been mentioned but what if H&S wouldn't allow that dodgy support after the first lift hill, not sure if its up to them or not but it could also explain the crane and the welding yesterday ??

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

Today on park i was at the toilet block near Xsector when a workman told me to be careful of the wires near the door, i saw this as an opportunity to ask about testing and opening dates. He said they were testing last night and also will be tonight at around 6 ! I then asked about the opening dates ...

Re: The Smiler - Speculation

I'm in two minds about the disorientator currently, one part of me is saying that it will just be the indoor barrel roll with lots of smiler logos on the wall like in the game, but the other half is saying it's going to be the washing machine because there's lots of space before the first hill for ...

Re: The Smiler - Speculation

This 30 seconds in the pre show could be the 30 seconds that we are missing from current 130 seconds that it takes to complete the circuit if you look at the POV video.

Re: The Smiler - Speculation

Id just like to mention that this POV linker here (http://youtu.be/M1t7z7VkRXs) lasts for 2 minuets and ten seconds (130) seconds. Now it has been stated in numerous place that the total ride time is 165 seconds. So we have 35 seconds of unused time, not sure what this time could be for possibly a s...

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

Umm just a question, why on the maintenance shed does there appear to be strips of tape or white paint, because as of now, i'm perplexed by it? Possibly a template before they paint the final design ? Also looking at that amazing photo update i'm getting so excited about this. I seriously can't wai...

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

Is it just me that thinks the gap between the inverted drop and the curved track at above the toilets seems huge. If you look at it, it just seems soooo far away. Might just be because of the camera but it just seems such a large gap.

Re: The Smiler Train Discussion

I really think that the promo images of the cars looked amazing !! All the wires and extra stuff going on at the back of the seats looked ace. Then we get the real thing, and yes they look like they did in game but i don't think i was the only one who thought something more would be unlocked with th...

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

Not sure if its been mentioned but why are these stairs going up ? Is there a second floor for the station, just seems a bit odd ?

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

Was talking to my granddad the other day and he was the first to tell me about the delayed opening till but he also think that it may not be ready till the very end of May. We discussed all the elements that are going to take time to be working and he said the amount of work going into the electrics...

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

With all these twists and turns and inversions i think this roller coaster will have almost everyone throwing up. I shall defiantly be going on it before i have my lunch. Back on topic why haven't they built the wall up in the trench after the indoor section. It just seemed odd they would just leave...
