Re: The Smiler - General Discussion

Had my first ride yesterday and it was fantastic! After seeing what looked like a short queue for the ride we thought we would be on it in 30 mins. Just over 2 hours later I got my first taste of the beast and I wasn't disappointed. The indoor inversion is very intense and come's out of no where. I ...

Re: So... about SW8

That would be extremely poor for the next major ride. Maybe as a sort of replacement for Sonic (if it went)

Re: The Smiler - General Discussion

Pretty sure there are very few, if any, school holidays this week! Majority were last week, or at best the week before. None that I can see on holiday this week! I'm heading down to AT this afternoon to go on The Smiler again with family, so hoping the queue dies down a bit by the time we arrive! O...

Re: The Smiler - General Discussion

I'm going next Tuesday! I hope that A) the Smiler is working again and B) the queues aren't ridiculous like they look like they have been today! My parents are coming who haven't been to A.T since 1995!! Lucky we will have fast passes waiting for us when we get there but not for the Smiler...! See ...

Re: The Smiler - General Discussion

I will be there a week today! Hopefully everything is sorted. I shouldn't see it being a major problem it may potentially be the same train as last time which means that it could just be an issue with that particular train

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

Looks extremely promising with the new temporary queue line added.

Although i'm very excited I would slightly die if I got there and had to stand at the back of that, would obviously be worth it through.

Re: The Smiler - Marketing [May Contain Spoilers]

In no way are they false advertising!

All it say's is book now. At now point during the advert does it say open now or give a date

Re: The Smiler - Marketing [May Contain Spoilers]

Saw it for the first time on TV last night and at the end it said open now!

I like the advert apart from the last part where he says 'you belong to the smiler'. It is just to fast in my opinion.

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

If they have only just discovered the problem then I don't see what else you expect them to do. I very doubt they have know about the problem and if they did then I'm sure they have been trying to fix it but now they have realised it won't be done in time.
