I'd love to see Cadburys sponsor the Smiler due to how typically English the brand name is.

Plus I was set a good impression after the heroes sponsor for Air...my favourite AT advert by far  :)

"The Smiler - sponsored by Cadbury's"

Is it just me, or is that like putting heaven and hell together (on a smaller scale though, obviously).
Smiling since 1997.

I hope they don't go with a sponsorship deal - really makes rides look tacky. #oblivionfanta

Aaargh not sure where this should be posted =P Construction creates speculation and speculation is sometimes confirmed by construction... Maybe we should merge these two topics somewhere along the way? ...Anyway, here's how I assume the station will be laid out (according to current construction, plans and speculation) using this horribly crude photoshop mockup:

Image

As a key:
-Heavy black: walls/partitions
-Pink/purple: stairs
-Green: Operator's cabin
-Red: track (under-station omitted for ease of viewing)
-Off yellow: Queue barriers

It's needless to say that this is hardly likely to be the final station layout, but the current construction pics, what's shown in the game and the plans etc is at least a good starting point.

The way things are looking, we have 2 conceivable ways of entering the queue line One coming from the east elevation and one coming from the west. I can only guess that the east way in (the stairs leading up to the platform) could be the fasttrack entrance whereas the west entrance is for the normal queue line (having come from elsewhere in the building... suggesting a pre-show).

What makes me think this? take a look at this shot from the game:

Image

It sure looks to me that there could be another way into the station, via that little corridor on the left by the ticket barriers. Could this be to do with the talked about pre show? It would explain this little section right here:

Image

It looks like they're trying to do something with that room, something to make it usable for people during operation.

It didn't last long if I remember right, but I'm sure there were plan to keep the sponsorship longer and design the ride to be more related to cadburys

If Cadbury's sponsored the Smiler, they'd have to change the yellow to purple, of course. ;)

So for some reason I was looking up the Big Brother theme, don't ask me why. But I came along this opening title for BB7..

Looks pretty similar?

Hopefully the adverts will be similar to that, but obviously without the whole crappy big brother trance music

It's been said on here before but Big Brother was inspired by George Orwell's "1984" as is the MOJ and The Smiler

Bit random, but about half an hour ago I got inspired to make a Smiler wallpaper after I saw such artistic atrocities like this, which I have linked to but not shown as it may lead to repeated vomiting. So yeah, here you go if you want it. Do whatever the hell you want with it, just don't say it's yours.

Anyone think there is something a bit Demon Headmaster-ish about this theme?

The Smiler - sponsored by Cadbury Twirl?

Seems like a perfect fit!

Why is everyone thinking it's going to be sponsored by Cadbury in the first place? Is it something as silly as Ministry of Joy > Joyville?
