Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

That inspection car, is it on Tatsu's track?! Cool. Also don't expect any guaranteed pipework updates today. I've fallen behind. Had something very important to take care of and I don't think I'll get it done before my internet cuts off. It might happen, might not, just saying don't assume that it'...

I bet the "System Check" area is where the supposed vortex tunnel could be.





I still think we will see the track before the first lift hill have led panels around  to create the vortex illusion.

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

It's a pump room for the various effects, and should apparently be covered. So we're definitely seeing at least mist OR/AND water sprays from the inoculater then    :D Silos were dug into the ground months ago, you can see them in the early aerials, Im sure these will hold the water for t...

That's a bad thing?

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

could it be that we get a twisty lift hill? Highly unlikley all the parts seen so far for the lifts show they will be standard chain lifts, which would make it pretty difficult for the lift to twist. I have been thinking about the section of track before first lift hill and after the inside barrel ...

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

Are the support bases bolted down into the footers before they are concreted in?. if so it seems a strange way to go about constructing a rollercoaster especially if one of the supports becomes a problem at a later date and needs to be replaced

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

Been reading the construction forum for a while now and this is my first post!,  for some reason I have it in my head that the first lift hill will have an inline twist half way up it! giving us 15 inversions! I doubt that would happen as it would be impossible? Only possible way would be with...
