Re: The Smiler - General Discussion

Now that it's open and it doesn't matter anymore, is there any chance of TT reaching out to Alton Towers for comment on the closure, the valleying etc? You guys must have a good relationship still since the early days of construction coverage so they might say a little bit more or confirm some of t...

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

Good news or bad news

Good news - The smiler WILL open today this is categorically confirmed
bad news - Not till about 11 to 12 probably. There needs to be some test runs first and there was a guy at the top of the lift hill before doing something but has since returned back to the station.

Seems a bit crazy to allow large numbers of people to queue now if they knew it wasn't gonna open at 10


It might open at 10 lol who knows ;) However , it looks more to be like 11am as they told me that they need to run the train round the track a few times before opening.

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

Just had confirmation again off park staff . The smiler will open sometime BEFORE 1pm. They said that they need to get the trains into the station and round the track a few more times before opening today but they said it will open today.

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

JayJay got it in one. I'm scarred from bad treatment and mixed messages. I spoke to Merlin this afternoon and they are saying the opposite of what you all believe. I was told that there may be things to still be done in the areas we cannot see and to wait for an official announcement from their web...
