I think we can rule out an April Fool, its pretty poor form to tease your April Fool. never mind teasing it almost two weeks before.
As for what it is, I hope it is not VR on the Smiler, The Smiler is a great coaster in its own right and a joy to ride, both in terms of the loops, twists, and also its a strong visual experience. If I was to think of some VR visuals to fit the theme, it would be very dark, twisted, horror movie type stuff to fit the theme, whilst its not impossible I think it would be too dark for alot of people, and not the right choice for the ride and the park over all. Also whilst I dont believe we need a 2nd VR coaster, it if was up for debate, I would not want it on any of the X-Sector rides, same for Nemesis. That said if they could do something with the Nemesis back story theme with VR, that could be good, really put you in the moment the nemesis creature came out the Earth*, then ride Nemesis alot more involved in the story. Something a little better than narration via news reader, and something escaping an egg. I just dont think a second VR retro fit is an option.
*Really need to ride the Ghost Train at Thorpe Park, to see what could be done with that idea.
