Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

SW now stands for Slow Working lol Anyway there 11 months now since they started to take the black hole tent down and another 2 months to go. The transformers ride at Universal Studios is nearly finished and that's only taken 8 to 9 months to build from start to grand opening. I just hope this coas...

I'd be very disappointed if they were static. I'm sure they'll move, at least when the train passes by anyway.

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

Where's the SE Big surprise: There is none. ;) A SE is never confirmed the park never said anything about that. But they said it's a world first so enthusiasts enforced the idea of a SE. What the World first is I don't know but that's what I wish to find out. ;) Really? And what info are you basing...

Powers that be ; is there any chance of an aerial 'video' update?

Re: The Smiler- Mobile Game Application

I posted this in the marketing forum before, but I think it is better placed here: I don't know if anyone else has already discovered this but when you have the Smiler app open on your phone do the following for a cool hidden surprise: 1) Click on 'scanner' and then point your phone's camera at you...

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

Absolutely no idea if this has been brought up, but since everyone has been talking about launches there seems to be one towards the end perhaps. I know the game isn't exactly the best factual evidence but there appears to be a launch mechanism as the train enters the station building at roughly 39...

Re: So... about SW8

good idea however the wooden coasters are just not that capable of the thrills of steels and im not sure how they could theme it possibly beast or something like that ?
