Re: The Smiler Incident 02/06/15

now may be a coincidence, but someone asked what rides will be open for scarefest on FB and AT have replied all rides will be open?

they usually say with the exception of the smiler?

im not getting my hopes up though.

Re: The Smiler Incident 02/06/15

I was there when the Smiler Valley'd back in 2013, I was in the Q at the time and they evacced us away from the area AS SOON as it happened

if there was people still in the Q at the time it crashed it makes me think they DEFO didnt know about it in the cab and human error for sure.
