Re: The Smiler - General Discussion

Woah. What a day. What a daaaay!!! Well, at 9 we ran to the smiler to queue, but they told us to go away and queue in half hour. So we did. We queued for an hour, but the team said that it wouldn't open until lunch. So, we bought a fast track, £6 each. Not too bad. They were timed for 11:30, but th...

Wow, Guest Services is going to be taking a battering today (again) with The Smiler, Oblivion, Enterprise, Sonic Spinball and Air being closed. This must be the worst year for Customer Service in a long long time.

Re: The Smiler - General Discussion

Anybody know how many test dummies they have had in the trains for testing recently? As it looks like only 6 in that photo.  Hopefully they haven't become complacent and put less in... Even though I still think that it should be possible to test without any dummies! Going on Wednesday for my 1...

We got off the ride at 11:55 having gone straight there when the park opened at 9am. So you actually qu...
