Re: The Smiler - General Discussion

I'm sorry to say that The Smiler was closed today at 16:45 for 'technical issues'. Was there today, many people dissapointed after having been told to leave the que after a 110 minute wait. :( I was also there today and in the single rider queue as it happened, we were at the station and got told (...

What will the smiler be like in 20 years?

Well, I seem to have a more optimistic view than most  :lol: I think it'll be trudging along at half capacity, but will still be regarded as an alright coaster. It'll be seen as good and a crowd pleaser but that it 'never quite got there' in terms of being the best. Bless The Smiler, It's tryin...

Re: Paranormal Activity 5- Could this be the end?

For me, paranormal activity has always been more or less predictable, and I entirely agree with you all that they have gone down hill from the start, I think it's about time to put an end to the franchise. I mean, what more can they do with it? There are some absolutely amazing tales and urban legen...

Will we be seeing a comeback of the sounds for the sb? Because as annoying as they sometimes got, I found it a good feature to have as you didn't have to be constantly staring at it for a reply :P

Re: Blackfish

I hadn't heard of this before this topic, and I've just watched the trailer. I am a huge animal lover, especially marine creatures, and whales are a big love of mine. I remember going to Florida in 2008, and watching the shamu show was the highlight of my stay. But after seeing this trailer, and onl...

Re: Alton Towers Praise

On previous visits I haven't really took note of the staff and there friendliness, but when I went last week, it seemed like every single member of staff I encountered had a smile on their face and genuinely enjoyed there job. They didn't look sour faced and like they'd rather be anywhere than work-...

Re: The Smiler - General Discussion

Did anyone see the video Alton Towers put up on there facebook page earlier today of Jim Chapman on the smiler? Maybe the thing we see videoing him here is like the videos we'll see being produced from the on-board cameras? Here's the link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=584sydWpCj8&t=5m35s I may...

Re: The Smiler - General Discussion

On Monday, I noticed that they had a strobe light in the indoor queue line, It was on the wall opposite the entrance to the baggage hold and gave a nice effect to the queue. I have never noticed this before and I'm almost sure it must be new, as it was pretty noticeable! :P

Re: Best themed Coaster Thorpe VS Alton...

I can only judge the Alton coasters as I've never been to thorpe,  but I'd definitely say nemmy, with all the effort they put in for the river of blood to the landscaping of the rocks, it's brilliant! However I don't like the skellington they have put on the waterfall- It looks wrong and doesn'...

Re: 20% discount in shops with merlin pass not always true!!!!

I really think they should make some propper rules on what you can and can't use your discount on, because it seems like everyone is being treated differently and every staff member has ther own rules. Prices should stay consistent for everyone, at the moment it seems like not even Merlin know the e...
