The queue line videos are really smart and I don't think they get the credit they deserve. Last time I was on the Smiler, I noticed one of them would count up every loop and have a corresponding image to represent the name of the type of inversion. I thought it looked stylistically awesome and was really interesting. I don't think I've seen a ride do something this smart and I really like it but never hear people say anything about it.
I noticed this earlier this year, kept watching the screens to see it again, but didn't get to!
I got on it twice this year, and because I haven't been to AT for ages, I was quite surprised at how rubbish the smiler looked.
Two of the projectors weren't working in the queue line, although the strobe was, the stairway in the queue was in a state with dirty footprints all over the walls.
Indoor strobe wasn't working, TV screens at second lift hill not working, both inoculators not working, laughing gas audio not working, 2 of the hypnotiser discs not spinning and the tickler not working at all.
I know it sounds like I'm moaning loads about the ride, but it is still one of my favourite rides and I still LOVE the exit from the ride!
