Re: The Smiler - General Discussion

So excited looking at everyone's photos and stories. Can't wait till I can go! Missed out by 2 days. :( Looked online and it says 180 mins queue time... Wow. That takes some dedication.

Re: Roper update

Bad joke but maybe the Ropers are to do with The Smiler not opening. :lol:

Towers 2 Go have reported that the smiler will open on Tuesday. But won't quote source.


I'll love it to be open Tuesday as that is when I'm going but my god I'll be gutted if its busy. The whole reason I booked the next week is to try and avoid crowds.

On the immediate left of that was the Water Chute (later renamed but I forget what they called it). Essentially a wild mouse car dropped down a rollercoaster track into a splash pool. Fun but rough when you hit the water.



Vikingar, I think it was. :)

Re: Doctor Who Series 7 Part 2

I want to know who Clara is... Now. :lol:

Anyone read about the whole Clara and Rose thing? The pub name, always wearing red, roses in her room... I just don't see where it is going! I've read one theory but I really don't like it.

What do you do to your Springfieldians when you run low on cash and you need to build the buildings in The Simpsons Tapped Out? I need $32,500 to build the First Church of Springfield. And I am coming up to Lvl 15 now where you unlock Moe's Tavern, where you get marge and moe. Buy loads of blue hou...

Maybe you could have somewhere for people requiring assistance like surveys etc - I saw a few of those floating around in there? Don't know how many clicked them though...

Could anyone tell me what ride was where Valhalla now is in that show? (1997) It all looked so much busier then.


I can't remember to be honest but I remember the Water Chute in the corner.

Re: Roper update

I started mooching around on the Internet about this the other night and it looks like the Ropers have never had a case against Merlin since Oblivion was built. The only reason they had a case there was because of the old announcement played at the top of the drop.

If they were looking and doing their own dark water ride, cost and capacity would be two major factors af...
