Re: The Smiler Incident 02/06/15

That's what I was told, like I said I don't know how reliable or accurate it is. It also sounds like they are not too sure on the ride's future, but if it stays I think it will remain 'The Smiler'

Re: The Smiler Incident 02/06/15

To add on to my last post, the 'Buy The Smiler' signage has also been removed, and The Smiler logo that you see when you look down from Oblivion's drop which used to be Fanta has also been removed.

Re: The Smiler Incident 02/06/15

I was on park today and it was my first visit for this season, wasn't too busy to start with, and Oblivion, Enterprise & Sonic Spinball re-opened at around 2 this afternoon. As to a question asked earlier, you can not hear any music playing in X Sector until you are in Oblivion's queue. Also, wh...
