Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

well I credit the idea of scented smoke, that is definitely possible with some very simple technology. Ok yes I do think that, between the ride photo and the Marmiliser there is definitely the potential to show faces of the riders, I just dont specifically think you can show *everyone* on the Marmil...

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

How would you do the ride picture-Marmiliser thing with 16 people though? James - A breakdown with the celeb/press party is pretty normal and these other things don't surprise me at all, than in addition to that an amount of down time and work that may well occur after the official opening. Also: I'...

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

The marmaliser is an impressive structure, the LED board looks great and there are some good theming features but overall it feels like they have just stuck anything on now matter how silly (bins, barrels, car wash brushes) which is not 'clever' but highlights a lack of creative ability on behalf o...
