Re: What is Your Favourite Advert?

I love all the one ( mainly the older ones ) that don't have all the cartoon village rubbish! I like it when they only show the ride and not a happy, weird village at the same time. it take away from the theme of the ride, for example due to their beginnings N:ST and The smiler looked far to.... hap...

More and more gate are going in haha :D at least they are not wasting there time, I think they needed this time really and used the H&s issue as a reason to delay it longer and finish it off.

Ok, so just has a look back at BPs coverage of THE SMILER and they said it pulled 4.5Gs, yet Wardley said it pulled five. :-s
I trust Wardley more than I trust BP, but has anyone got any conformation on how many Gs this actually pulls?


I think it is 4.5 and John just rounded it up :D

Re: The inversions rant I've been saving up for ages.

Towers should just buy out the surrounding land, including the Ropers , and in the long term they can build whatever they like. -- Thats probably a stupid statement, but hey, one can dream Then the towers can encase the ropers + their house in some-kind of glass dome and make it out as a zoo attrac...

Re: The Smiler - Marketing [May Contain Spoilers]

I think the delay may of been an for seen problem, as they only sated the opening date in small writing at the bottom in the advert, like how banks use small prints "for us keeping your money you will give us your soul" ;) basically the gist of small print!
Anyway haha just a thought :D

It was awesome inside, and more or less just like the plans and concepts.  There is the odd photo kicking about which shows this, but they are hard to find.

I would rather them have this delay than have Alton to rush, cut corners and make more mistakes, and have a Air type mistake again when opening :D It's for the best! :D other wise it will still have things being built while you ride it and they won't be done do as good standers, I know it's annoying...
