Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

If the Smiler has had permission to be built there then the ropers should carry on with their knitting and get used to the fact that they cant spoil other peoples fun. Also if the Smiler testing is 200 hours then a noise assesment of this process would of already of taken place if it is neccesary, ...

Re: Nemesis: Sub-terra (contains spoilers)

Am I the only one that wasent that impressed by it? haha half the time I found it quite boring just sitting there looking at an egg while a voice goes on and on!  Then the drop was unexpected and good but was quite small and dident leave me shivering and the effect like the back poker were more...

This is not an onsite video however it does have the same design as one of the spinning discs on the Hypnotiser, you can see it spinning in action here.

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

Let us not forget the freefall drop (or freefall emergency evacuation for some) being a world's first aswell! JW said several worlds firsts and I for one believe him, he could have just agreed with worlds first, but no... Several he said, several there will be I think 5 of them are the Marmaliser e...

Re: The Smiler - Speculation

Earlier today TowersTimes captured a video of The Marmaliser testing out its video screen. Take a look on our minisite dedicated to The Smiler. http://www.towerstimes.co.uk/sw7/video/ One of the panels is still broken on that video, does nothing for my OCD! haha I saw the same thing! my OCD is in o...

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

We can now see that the '15 rotations' screen from the game was indeed just a snap shot, of the carriage rotation screen we have seen today on The Marmaliser, and so doesn't mean that the ride will have 15 inversions, it just so happened to be caught on that number which is very close to the actual...

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

Can someone tell me what the disorientator is please Having just seen this on YouTube, I'd say that there is a strong possibility of a washing-machine effect. Note the "carriage rotation" graphic @0:29 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iOvukdU8dCA here you go! :D (the screen will show you ;) )

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

I'm telling you, the fins are there for all to see... I say freefall drop myself. As for the washing machine, they can do it perfectly well with just having the walls and ceiling "spinning" during the indoor heartline, in fact it will be even more disorientating that way than really spinn...

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

I understand it's personal opinion whether people think there is a washing machine element or not, but I'm pretty sure people are setting themselves up for disappointment if they convince themselves there is one. It's much better to be sceptical about it, then if you are wrong it just means the rid...

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

To be honest I think that the video has pretty much confirmed it, what else could it be? I love the video in a way it does look a bit tacky but when it gets to describing the effects of the Marmaliser it look so amazing! :D I think that the knifes would of been a better effect than the hypnotiser bu...
