I think for me the best moment was seeing the photos and videos from The Smilers opening day. The event was brilliantly covered by Towers Times and it was nice to see the public on the ride after months of agonising waiting and anticipation (and a lot of speculation
). It made me all the more excited to ride it and when I finally did, I wasn't let down! In my opinion it was one of the most enjoyable and thrilling first ride of any roller coaster I have ever been on, and even after several rides it is still great fun. Hopefully some of the issues it was plagued with last season will be sorted out and I can't wait to ride it again if I get a chance to this year!
Standing on the side of Battle Galleons shooting people with the water cannons was also an enjoyable moment. It is deeply satisfying to know that you have added to their soaking, especially on a cold day!
