Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

With both trains now on the break run, we can only assume that dueling was tested last night. H&S have not closed the ride due to support issues, otherwise those trains would not have moved.

Re: The Smiler - Other Discussion

Seems like the update to the smiler game has been deliberately delayed also... They obviously want to keep things secret until the ride is really open

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

More news from Team on park this evening! A second ultra-reliable source has confirmed The Smiler not opening due to H&S not being signed off yet. This source has confirmed that the ride will not open tomorrow. There is a small chance it may open Friday, but that is very speculative. This is go...

Re: The Smiler - Other Discussion

I really hope not, they can't keep an incremental upgrade as a top secret... But we'll find out soon enough

Re: The Smiler - Other Discussion

There's a barrel roll and 2 dive loops missing from the game, so they will definitely be unlockable. Then you've got the long rumoured (by myself) freefall drop/rollbacks and the "disorientator" in the tunnel, what else can we think of? Or maybe the stage 3 of each of the 5 marmi legs per...

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

I would really love to see a full, un-edited POV video, has one been posted anywhere yet? No cuts, no music dubbed over it, just pure, raw Smiler! TT will be bringing you one on the 23rd! Yay! Thank you! :) If it doesn't brake down and they're allowed to take the cam on, even then it's iffy wether ...

Re: The Smiler - Marketing [May Contain Spoilers]

There has got to be something new coming out today... We've had press shows and rides all week, why do they need a big press announcement now, unless they have something new to add? Its not an announcement its just a big event because it is finally complete it's so the press can get images and more...
