Me no wanna go smiler if there actors on it  :(

I know this feel. When the lift doors opened on Sub Terra I was right next to the door, and I jumped onto 5-8 people, and then the floor, because of an actor who snook up on me.
Traumatic.

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

I Hope Alton Towers will release the Time Lapse footage of construction, It will be interesting to see what the difference of the Black hole tent being there and now 'The Smiler' being there will look like! It will be a long video, with lots of nothing in places then  :P (On a serious note, it...

Re: The Smiler - Marketing [May Contain Spoilers]

Just think of the positives from these horrible reports! Less people interested, means shorter queues for us :D That's a plus indeed but this is the first known issues it's had since running during park opening times and so close to opening day. Just makes me worried if these teething problems will...

Proposal-

Well, im gonna propose to my girlfriend when we go to alton towers next- I want to do it on the smiler. Well, I cant decide whether to do it on the ride or in the queue, or after weve been on it.

Re: The Smiler - Marketing [May Contain Spoilers]

Looking at the Capital FM POV, there isnt some kind of secret pre show under the station :(

Nevertheless, the sheer awesomeness from the almost complete ride almost made me choke on my spaghetti and made my eyeballs melt.

ID for hotel?

My girlfriend and I were planning on staying overnight at the Alton towers hotel, it dosent say on the website that there is an age limit, and the age for an 'adult' on the ticket prices is 12, so I was wondering if anybody here could tell me if there is an age limit? Or if there are any ways we cou...

Re: The Smiler - Speculation

The queue line should have disorientating patterns and illusions covering them. I think they shouldve designed it so it was more of a maze. Would have given the riders a better insight to the rides theme  :D

Re: The Smiler - Other Discussion

Maybe that's the point though, concrete looks harsh and is very 1950s/1960s which would link to the closure of the sanctuary and being taken over by MOJ... Just a thought. I think it looks like the walls round parking areas round the back of old council estates, but without the graffiti Haha! Lets ...
