Re: The Smiler - General Discussion

"We have introduced very limited numbers of Fastracks for The Smiler to help us manage the queue line more effectively – ie, by opening the Fastrack line we can take some people out of the overflow area.  We’re very much reviewing it on a daily basis to ensure we get the balance right.&quo...

Re: Quick Questions

My sun tickets has a flyer saying come back the next day for £5.
Can anyone tell me where in the park I can purchase the 2nd day tickets?

I'd rather not have to wait in the morning queue outside the park to get them, so was hoping there's somewhere on park i can pop into mid afternoon.

Re: The Smiler - General Discussion

As MAP holders, will they stop GP entering park / Smiler queue till 10am? Or is it only ERT that the GP miss out on ? If they are allowed to queue at 9 - what's the benefit of MAP/ERT ? Whining I know, but hey .... I know we are going off topic here but ERT is no longer "a perk", yesterda...

I bet that had them quaking in their boots. ;-)

Their main page says its closed due to technical issues.  Couldn't be any clearer at the moment.  At least, to me anyway.

Re: bounce back tickets

I'd expect you can use them with the Sun tickets. My sun tickets came with a flyer for "come back tomorrow for £4.80." so it must be allowed.

Re: Car park rip off!?

Personally I don't mind paying for parking if I'm not spending any money where I'm going.
But when you spend quite a bit of money getting into, and while in, the park, £6 parking is a joke.

Out of curiosity, how much is the parking near the entrance these days?

Re: The Smiler - Marketing [May Contain Spoilers]

As its part of their marketing, thought I'd ask it here; I was curious if anyone had won anything on the smiler smartphone app?  The spinning wheel keeps teasing me by slowing down and then ever so slowly tipping over to the non winning section. Ha It's no it's nothing to do with the spinning a...
