Re: The Smiler - Speculation

I have a feeling that there will be some sort of pre-show during the indoor queue. Why else would there be flaps on the door to block out light?

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

How are they going to block out the natural light on the indoor section because I have a feeling it's gonna seem in quite a bit?

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

Ok! To clear this up once and for all, I decided to email the man himself! I wondered about the height limit, so here's the email: Hi Adam Thank you for your kind email. I'm sure they'll manage to safely fit you into the Smiler! There is no official maximum height limit, but we had a journalist toda...

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

In regards to the height limit, I've phoned Alton and they said that it will probably have a 6 foot 7 height limit.

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

I'm most disappointed at the indoor section. I know it isn't finished, but there is no form of pre-show or anything. Other than that though: [spoiler] OH MY GOD, WHAT A BEAST!

Does this mean that testing could start if the site managers wanted to?

Re: To Spoil or not to Spoil. That is the question.

If you do create the two topics, I suggest that you rename the current construction topic as non-spoiler, and then create a new topic for spoiler?

I'm going to go ahead and assume testing will start today. Either that, or the cars are being checked over.

Re: The Smiler - Other Discussion

There will be an upper height limit due tongue tightness of the track and I would expect it to be 1.96m as seems to be pretty standard but we shall see I guess. A lot of the time, height restrictions are due to the cars (e.g restraints and head rests), so I'm hoping that this will have a 7 foot res...

Yes they will its called night shifts ;) ;)

In all honesty, I don't see night shifts alone providing enough testing. Not only that, but I doubt workers or even local residents (*coughRopers cough*) would be too pleased! What would the point be if there is nothing to hide?

After reading the comments, somebody pointed out that the guy is most probably a guy called "Adam Buxton". A British comedian. Surely enthusiasts couldn't get him to help (or afford him!)?
