Re: 2013 Season - General Discussion

This does however depend on the extent of the heaviness of the rain or what effect the rain may have on the atmosphere as this can cause oblivion to temporarily close , air and Rita do have a warning saying the rain may cause this ride to become uncomfortable but does not close I think you may be t...

Re: The Smiler - General Discussion

Has there been any down-time at all in the past two weeks? Touch wood it's been running smooth and if the weather holds out should be open tomorrow. Hopefully anyway, given apparently it has a 0 minute queue atm. I went last Thursday, ran smoothly all day on 5 trains + it was 0mins from about 1 ocl...

Re: The Smiler - General Discussion

On a completely different note, The Smiler now has a technical name/ coaster style! Gerstlauer have named it the 'Infinity Coaster'. Interesting. Wonder how many more of these will be built! http://www.gerstlauer-rides.de/references/reference-list/europe/united-kingdom/the-smiler-en-US/ You need to...

Re: The Smiler over closed season 13/14

I genuinely believe nothing will happen now for a good few years. Maybe a few tweaks here and there, but nothing to make people go "wow, that's incredible". Oblivion only recently had its track painted, despite it being in serious need of a repaint for a while. The Smiler will look a mess...

Re: Ride Downtime 2013

It was posted on the TT FB a few days ago and AT have offered to the date of anyones ticket if they were just going to ride The Smiler Ah that's good then, I'm not on the TT Facebook group, just on the forum here.

Re: Ride Downtime 2013

I would advise anyone who hasn't been on The Smiler before to queue up first thing, no matter how long the queue is. I just wouldn't risk it missing out because it breaks down later in the day.

Re: The Smiler - General Discussion

In my opinion, if you've never been on The Smiler, it is better to queue up right away for it.

Re: The Smiler - General Discussion

They are replying to a lot of people on Twitter now. I'm guessing (just a wild guess!) that the Smiler will re-open today seeing as they don't mind talking when it is open.
