Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

I think they must have filmed more! Especially some actual ride footage with those awesome lights and effects  :D I'm guessing that video was just a little teaser :P

Re: The Smiler - Speculation

I think it is great testament to Alton towers that we still can't really guess the remaining secrets of this ride, they are doing a great job at keeping many aspects myaterious :) as for the public testing, I think there must be some form of secret that occurs outside and that is why we haven't seen...

Re: The Smiler - Marketing [May Contain Spoilers]

I just realised something. When Alton teased us by leaving the Smiler car half way through the track, this was by the 'HALF WAY CORRECTED' sign. Could this have been an early clue/teaser about the latest Smile.Always video, where Miles Cedars was only 50% corrected (half way corrected  ;) )&nb...

Yeah maybe where you see Miles getting subjected to the smiler, maybe making some use of the lighting that was brought in
This is just an idea though

Yeah maybe there'll be some actual ride footage :) I would say with miles onboard but I'm pretty sure they wouldn't have let anyone ride yet ;)

Re: The Smiler - Marketing [May Contain Spoilers]

There might be more videos after this little series relating to Trisha. But i agree that the 4th one is likely to still be centered around miles cedars. It makes sense to carry on the series in a similar fashion and on the AT website it specificly asks for information about miles cedars. I'm guessin...

Kirsty has resolved her height issues and has brought us this: https://pbs.twimg.com/media/BJvNbgBCcAACuQW.jpg:large It's moved :O I hope they paint the rest of the footers around the ride black, like they've done with the ones outside the ride area :) Judging by the picture they need cleaning firs...

Re: The Smiler - Marketing [May Contain Spoilers]

Another incredibly freaky video :P I assume the old man is Dr Kelman but I'm unsure who is talking to him? He also states that miles cedars is only 50% marmalised and that more advocates are needed... So I'm guessing thats where we come in  :lol:

Re: The Smiler - Marketing [May Contain Spoilers]

Maybe the lights/effects could be projected onto the station building as well :) I think this would result in a much clearer effect and will always be in the backdrop of the track. I'm starting to think the world bearing aspect of the ride is 'the most lights situated around a rollercoaster'  :...

Yeah that makes sense, sorry my bad. I haven't been to AT recently so I wasn't aware those screens had been installed throughout the park.

Re: The Smiler - Marketing [May Contain Spoilers]

I've been thinking, in the smiler game the sky has a spiral effect and the smile is in the moon. Now I'm not saying that this will be copied exactly, but do you reckon a couple of those lights delivered to the site will be used to project images/patterns into the sky creating the same sort of thing...

Re: The Smiler - Other Discussion

I guess that's a possibility. But even if they weren't taking about the marmaliser screens, I still think it would be a good idea to use them befor the ride opens. As I said it will generate hype and get people interested 8)

Going through Alton towers twitter feed I found this: http://i1360.photobucket.com/albums/r660/LCFCjames/9DC81DAB-E777-457A-BBE7-045E343BB2BE-456-0000004865BBA662_zpsd0eb8559.jpg I guess once the ride is close to opening they will be putting tweets and maybe pictures of fans on the screens, just to ...

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

It'd be pretty cool if the buckets had a good old illusion trick to them like the theme of The Smiler. That would be pretty good :) I think it would be cool if they could incorporate the 5 marmalising elements into the game as well, although I'm not sure how they would achieve this :P How about thr...

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

What do we think the game is going to be? I would like it to be something unique that's unlike the other games stalls in the park. It looks like its well themed at least and should fit in with the area 8)

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

Hi there! Long time lurker, first time poster! Times are getting too exciting to just sit back and watch. About the train left on the bottom of the 2nd lift, assuming they've tested the full circuit already, is it possible it's there ready to start two-train testing? Once testing resumes, that trai...
