Always good to see them doing so well, once the ride is up and running and any hubub has died down they can maybe start moving on from it all and let life get back to some semblance of normality

Makes me laugh that a ride in china that has nothing to do with the Merlin brings up the Smiler Incident once again.
The news comes as Britain’s most controversial rollercoaster, The Smiler, started spinning once again at Alton Towers yesterday.

Considering they say safety is now paramount I'm kinda suprised they still allowed this guy to film, not that I object the filming personally.
