Defunct/abandoned theme parks....

Does anyone else find these fascinating?? I've enjoyed reading up on quite a few of these now and some of the pictures are breathtakingly eerie and very post apocalyptic. One of the stories that Ive found most interesting is the one about Heritage USA  http://illicitohio.com/SBNO/heritage/herit...

Re: So has The Smiler topped Nemesis?

Well back from park so now feel qualified to post an opinion on this! Nemesis is a different kettle of fish altogether so comparing them is tough. I have to say for me personally I LOVED the smiler and I think it does top nemmy in terms of the actual ride and layout. I was really worried reading all...

Re: The Smiler - Speculation

I was just going to put a post on seeing if people thought we may be missing the bigger picture and that there is more to the ride than we officially know.... Not that I am ungrateful for one minute - a 14 looping rollercoaster is fantastic but although world beating its not really worlds first. Wor...

Re: The Smiler - Marketing [May Contain Spoilers]

Well im sat on the fence a bit with the advert....it does make it look really really exciting but perhaps doesnt make the whole thing as 'dark' as it could do.

That tunnel with the lights though. one word. WOW

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

Please can I ask a really dumb question? I love coasters/rides/theming but I am not very up on the technical side of things.

The sign says uses strong magnetic fields - which bit of the ride does this relate to?

again, sorry for the dumb question....

Re: The Smiler - Other Discussion

haha! Im not going on about the air tunnel whatsoever merely commenting that in my opinion it was a wasted opportunity and that this time I believe they wont make that mistake again. From concept art on air etc I think the whole thing was left slightly unfinished but thats a whole other topic that n...

Re: The Smiler - Other Discussion

Dramatic dispatch like airs?!?! Yes air could have had so much for potential and the station is awesome but as well all know....that tunnel.......

Heres hoping towers have had an opportunity to put that right this time with the smiler - I really like your suggestions!

Re: The Smiler - Marketing [May Contain Spoilers]

does anyone think we will hear anymore from/about Dan and Trisha? The videos said they were looking for details/info of there whereabouts (including the last one) so do we think the story for these two is not over yet??

Re: The Smiler - Marketing [May Contain Spoilers]

I don't think he meant going back to see miles. I think Danny was saying should they watch another one of the videos when trisha was ready?

Re: The Smiler Train Discussion

re someone saying wether or not they think all the seats will end up facing the same way - I think it would be pretty cool for say at a certain point on the rollercoaster for your seat to turn around and face the other people riding with you - would make me smile anyway....!
