Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

Rob over at TowersStreet posted a photo update earlier today which doesn't seem to have been mentioned. Visit this link. It looks like there are magnetic fins added to the second airtime hill, thought they were there before but seems a new addition. They have also dug 2 trenches around the shop and...

Re: Favourite Alton Towers Advert?

Mine would have to be th13teen, even though it did mislead us! It was brilliant, creepy and just great! It had no reference to the cartoon like alton towers village which is just werid a too child like.  It's was just great! I only wish they did the N:ST and the smiler adverts were like that no...

The upgraded Rhydrator

So I haven't got any pictures myself, but the Rhydrator pipes has been repainted! And it's still orange, but I like the orange. It's Oblivons colour and the only thing that really shows it! The black did look good but it's was too dull, there was just too much black in the x sector and I feel the or...

Why did they not get the giggler to spray smoke out towards the track. I'm a bit disappointed as it sprays out towards the marmaliser so when doing that corkscrew you won't even see it


I think it does now or smokes so much that it creates a mist cloud around the track :D

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

I hope I havnt booked a day off for nothing :| the work on the support is a rather scary though 3 days before opening day Don't worry, I think its just seeing how it is after a few rides (as it does have a gap in it :) ) I honestly think its just a check up!

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

I don't think it will be finished in time....
not that anything important needs to be done but it looks like they have so many detail to add ( queue line, station ect... ) and they haven't got enough time to do so..., do you think we will have another N:ST mistake??

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

^ Sounds like a lot of effort. Plus what happens if the rider is staring at their feet the whole time. How would a computer morph their face? They would just have a weirdly shaped scalp. Im sure it will pick out the odd people, who are facing up, facial recognition is great now!! And anyway who sta...

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

I don't like the shop sign haha ( I know glass half empty ) but It looks cheap and easily breakable and out of place!!!!
Something written on the walls or just something much better anyway its off topic
So I'm digress ;)

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

Love how the entrance is so interactive! They have gone all out for this ride!! :D shame about the mist
Well lack of in the entrance, I was hoping for loads like for it to create a wall almost so you can't see through it! But still rather have little mist than no mist ;)
