Re: The Smiler- Mobile Game Application

Re: The Smiler - Speculation

Now we know 'The Inoculator' was not SW7's name, what do you think it is? As I've previously identified ;) it still relates to the theme of The Smiler very well, so that's what makes me think it still has a purpose somewhere... ⋅ A trick by Alton Towers to draw our attention away from The ...
