Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

Hang on a minute! Is that a board they've put up???
That may explain why we can't see anything...

What do you think will be completed first THE SMILER or THE SPIDER (I prefer calling it the smiley hub)
My money's on THE SMILER

What do you think?


By 'The Smiler' do you mean the track itself???

If so, then yes. Track will have to be completed before any theming elements are added.

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

So what's everyone's predictions on what's happened to the site since the last photo update on the 17th January? Not much in the way of track construction! Although they may start on the first lift hill once that area is ready - as it did look like they were focusing on that and the SE. I would hop...

When it says "February 2013" does this mean it will be coming out 1st of February?


Not necessarily, just some point during February.
So, as you can see they're not being specific with any of their dates now...!

Re: The Smiler- Mobile Game Application

Does this mean we'll get to see the secret element for the first time!?  :shock: I doubt they would reveal it in the app. This is what they said: Plus if you visit the Alton Towers Resort, unlock hidden content using Augmented Reality technology, with access to additional images, videos and se...

Re: The Smiler - Speculation

Re: The Smiler - Speculation

I have a feeling May will be the latest date they are looking at. That way if they can open it earlier everyone will get excited that it's now opening earlier than specified (even though it's later than the original date). They will be very hesitant to specify a date, as they don't want to have to p...

Re: The Smiler - Speculation

My new idea,The smiler end of ride photo stall will have new tech cameras scanning each individuals face and warping each and everyone's mouth to smile!! Hence the title the smiler! And the sanctuary stating lost your smile?, get corrected, marmalisation. This all makes sense to me, Have I just cra...

Re: The Smiler - Speculation

I'm pleased that they have confirmed a delay. At least we know they will be opening a fully completed ride! With regards to the rest of X-Sector, I assume that will be closed until they've removed all the heavy machinery, or have got to a stage where they can cordon off a construction site again. W...

Re: The Smiler- Mobile Game Application

Going on the basis that Alton Towers have said this, about the game: ...consisting of a full 3D recreation of the actual ride. Surely that means that the inversion circled in the image below will feature in the actual ride, and I don't think a corkscrew type inversion was on the original plans. So c...

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 ...

Re: The Smiler - Speculation

If they are going for inversions they only need 12 (at least), and it would both a world's first and world beating - no rollercoaster has done 12 inversions before, and it would beat the previous inversion record.

Re: SW7 Themed Rooms Discussion

When are the rooms due to open? Start of the season?
Because say in the... Unlikely... Event of SW7 being delayed surely it would mean the rooms are also prevented from opening, otherwise it would give away the theme.
