Re: The Smiler - General Discussion

Yeah I have to say I agree with what Matt said above. The queue times went much faster than what was said around the park. Although I set off for the park when I heard The Smiler had opened and queued. It was about 2-2.5hours long but thats only because it had broke down twice. The second time I hea...

Re: The Smiler - General Discussion

I had a message from towers at 9:30 saying that the smiler was doing routine testing as per usual and scheduled to open early morning. This is my 2nd attempt at trying to get a ride on this thing. *fingers crossed*

Anyone there confirm what's going on?

Re: The Smiler - General Discussion

I think once they get back to the 4 trains itll ease down to around 90-120mins! Maybe theyre just doing some work on the one train today whilst its a little less busy than half term

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

I'm going to sound quite dumb but would someone like to explain what a soft opening is? I'm just imagining everything becoming wobbly and jellylike  :D Its when a park opens a ride but doesnt announce it officially and runs it a few times so they can see how it goes and how it runs and reacts ...

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

See that's what I thought as it looked a bit copied and pasted but it looks like its opened on an iOS phone and sometimes bits and bobs are missing.

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

Found this on Instagram. She said she received the email yesterday and also states to someone that she would send the link the 'click here' goes to.
