Got into the station just about to board and it broke down at around 7, realy did panic as I thought that would stop me from riding but they sent a few test cars out and all was sweet, so smooth, that bunny hop hill is beautiful aswell!

Looking for some B&B info for local places to stay around towers.
The closer the better, as i dont drive so would be walking/bus/taxi to and from the park.

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

the only thinkg that cannot change from what i can gather is the overall height of the coaster.. and the station building. those were the 2 main factors in getting permission to build the coaster.


I am sure someone will be able to expand on what ive said more. or even correct me in places.
