It would appear that there are technical difficulties with Oblivion's mist:

I'm quite suprised they didn't pick up on the kelloggs packets earlier, I highly doubt they're going to withdraw potentially thousands-millions of cereal boxes, they will probably change the design though.

They might have changed the design but it'll take a while for thousands of cereal boxes to be shipped to the store next-door.

The smilee page on Wikipedia has been locked and Google themselves have set it as permanently closed, and it cannot be changed, only reported.

I find this article a complete joke. The Mirror are doing everything within their power to put Alton Towers in a bad situation.

So little of this article is new news, and how do they expect Alton Towers to get the packaging changed? Kelloggs is a large company who will not be willing to withdraw boxes.

The Mirror really are headline hunting idiots.

I saw it last week but didn't think much of it, thought it was just a re-theme of the unit. They have one in the arcade at Oblivion, rarely see anyone use it tbh so dunno why they decided to have another. Probably get more usage with the future investments around that area I suppose. Sticks out like a sore thumb with that red.

Is it a new one, or has the one near Oblivion been relocated to here?? Ive never seen anyone use the one near Oblivion so I find it strange that they would install another.
