I'm not joking or April Fooling, I seriously think that's who they're being sponsored by :L

It's kinda annoying having no one believe you when it hardly seems fake...

An example of an April Fools joke is Frijj's Spinach & Batternburg milkshake, or Minecraft 2.0.


Oh dear.  :lol:

It doesn't really sound like an April Fools joke to me. There's so much in-depth detail in that text, and to be fair, the thing about wanting the best smile seems perfect. Also, most April Fools day pictures don't look real; the one on that article does.


You best be April fooling.

I like the trains, but something is a bit odd. They were marketed as 'Euro fighter (new generation)' Whats new!?


Has there ever been a 4x4 row Euro fighter before?

Re: The Smiler Train Discussion

Everyone is entitled to their opinion. But some people are being a bit too judgemental and just criticising for the sake of criticising. They look good. The logo is perfect, the OTHRs look decent and the box time look of the car obviously has substance and thought to it. It won't look boxy when it g...

They've let something slip, for sure. This literally just confirms that there will be 4D effects on the trains.

If Alton Towers manage to absolutely nail the theming of this ride then I think it might well be the best coaster in the world! I'M SO EXCITED :rock:


Idk if it'll be better than Iron Rattler tbh.... But they're two different animals.

Re: The Smiler - NL Recreation

Well done.

I'd say the track is 90% right. Just a few mistakes but nothing I would change. It's good. NL is not easy.

The 13th inversion looks brutal on there. I actually hope it's like that in real life.

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

You can see the cement truck there, and track ready to be lifted into place. I'm predicting even more construction in the next update.  Probably another inversion! By what we know from plans etc etc i don't think they can put any track in place which isn't inversion because there isn't anythin...

Re: The Smiler - Speculation

Never ridden a floorless coaster (unless you cound SLC's of course) what are they like?! Also, anyone find it slightly odd looking back at JW's interviews where he mentions he would never try and go for an inversion record or anything like that as he percieved that as 'boring'?! One then has to won...

Re: The Smiler - Speculation

What's the point in the washing machine now, when we have 14 confirmed track inversions? There isn't one. If there was then we would be looking at this having 18-20 inversions. Which isn't happening. IF there is a secret element it WILL NOT be the washing machine idea. It will be something else. Wh...

With six major coasters now evened out in areas of the park; Nemesis & Air - FV Oblivion & TheSmiler - xsector Rita & th13teen - DarkForest That's two in each. I'd say SW8 needs to be in a different area than those three. Gloomy Wood would be a good choice. Close to Duel and in the wood...

This is a visually stunning coaster.

A lot of people I know are afraid of going upside down. Giggity.

I'd say MI7 should wait a few days. Save some gas. These photos will suffice and keep us happy until more is put up!

Re: The Smiler - Speculation

Interesting... I think the vertical lift will take longer than it does in that video. I've just been watching videos of Saw and Speed and the vertical lift takes quite a bit of time about 30 seconds on Speed. This could make up more time maybe? This. The timing won't be the same as on the game or t...

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

The whole washing machine idea came about as a reason to explain the 6 inversions that we could not see on the plans. As there were only 8 shown. Now we know of the 14 track inversions, due to the new plans, there is no need for the washing machine element. It will not be happening. There might be a...
