Re: The Smiler Incident 02/06/15

The park must be really worried about the ride as they would have reopened it for scarefest or the fireworks event. It would also question why they were testing it with only 1 test dummy. It's the stalling part they more worried about.

Re: The Smiler Incident 02/06/15

The park management must know more than we do with the long term future of the Smiler. Like rumours 1st came about it was reopening at the end of August and all the work done to the site and all the testing and it still didn't reopen.

Re: How much longer will Hex last?

Well the madhouse at Blackpool still going strong and that must have been added In the 1960's so unless it has a major breakdown which would cost more to replace then I can't see Hex leaving the park anytime soon. It be nice if they added more things in the vault or changed the program a bit.

Re: The Smiler Incident 02/06/15

Can I say something. My cousin was in the Army and served his country aboard and now his a lorry driver and to this day his not said a word about what he did or saw while on duty.
Now onto the Smiler the victims could be having sleepless nights,suffering depression and there lives changed forever.

Re: Staff and Recruitment Discussion 2015

I think it's a bit wrong putting job listings up for the 2016 season when 190 people may lose there job.

Re: The Smiler Incident 02/06/15

I guess with new trains they would have to be redesigned at the front to take better impact.

I think they will want it to be open for the start of the new season with Easter been on the 26th March next year.

Re: The Smiler Incident 02/06/15

Do u still list at the park entrance the rides out of action? I believe there is a notice advising which attractions will be closed that day at each of the ticket booths on the entrance plaza. They should list it at the beginning as you enter off the main road like Drayton Manor do so it be up to y...

Re: The Smiler Incident 02/06/15

Right if you were 1 of the 16 guests on that train or even worst on the front row then would you still be saying I be the first person in the queue when it reopens.

Re: The Smiler Incident 02/06/15

I think the reason it's not reopened this season cause of 2 things. Respect and with only 3 trains available it would be a knightmare to open during Scarefest and the firework event if 1 had to be taken out of service.

Re: The Smiler Incident 02/06/15

I been watching the queue times over the past week and with the likes of Rita getting 2 hour queues and all the other coasters 30 mins to 60 mins Merlin and Alton Towers management maybe thought it wasn't right to open it just in case of breakdowns. The crowd levels could be even a lot worst over th...

Re: The Smiler Incident 02/06/15

Yeah but it makes it sound worst if they include the words Alton Towers and the Smiler in every theme park news story in the paper.
Now if it did reopen for the fireworks event the headline in the papers would read crashed Coaster reopens with a bang.

Re: The Smiler Incident 02/06/15

I think that's the main thing HSE is worried about with the trains Stalling on the same section of track. Like they accept it was human error that it crashed and they added things so it won't happen again. I think the park would want this problem sorted and if they can't solve it then they may have ...

Will be next October before we get to go back. If it's going to open at all I sure hope it will be open by then.


If it's not open by Oct next year then it won't ever be open to the public again. Theses HSE staff must be finding more problems all the time.
