@altontowers

Lots of questions about #TheSmiler opening date, we'll hopefully be letting you know at some point this week! Nearly time to #GetCorrected

Release date may be soon!

Hopefully. that doesn't sound good
In just 1 day I managed: 75 rides on stealth, 8 swarms, the dodgems and a tea cups. February half term was good.

I guess it depends on the results of the first test runs. If it is successful then they will know when they can open it.

Any mention of Enterprise? Maybe 'we need to employ you in our latest business enterprise' or something like that.

I heard the story was that the whole of X sector has supposedly been owned by the MOJ the whole time but its only now that they've revealed themselves. :moj

When Submission is mentioned, you can see Enterprise in the background! :)

I am just going top put this out there:
I don't think that Miles Cedars is going to be the main character in the storyline for the smiler. I would say that the main perpetrator of the smiler would be portrayed as an official, and long standing, member of the MoJ. He/she could be introduced as someone coming to check on Doctor Kelman and Miles Cedars in a later video.

The reason for this is that Miles Cedar is only test subject 1 and would hold no official power in the MoJ. However he would be the test subject that officials at the MoJ would, have most interest in and, base their future projects on. So in the 4th video I predict that we could see the arrival of a MoJ official who will partially explain their plans for the smiler.
"The Marmalisation Process has been scientifically designed to ensure a sense of euphoria and satisfaction should be had by all... There are no, known, Long Term side effects to the Marmalisation process, however short term side effects may include: dizziness, vomiting, loss of balance, loss of limb control, feinting, wild hallucinations but most importantly Smiles!"

I think the current X-Sector rides (oblivion, enterprise and submission) will have a role to play in the storyline of The Smiler. Judging by the videos I think the previous rides are all part of a secret marmalisation process and The Smiler is the final piece to turn the patients into advocates.

That seems to be the implication in Video 2, although many people have also mentioned that recently. Not sure about retconning the X-Sector backstory - but it makes sense to keep the story and theming consistent across all 4 rides. Lets face it, whatever they do will be a bit better than the clash in the Dark Forest!

I think all the rides will fit in well with the area once The Smiler is opened. The colour scheme and the sinister feel of each ride all relate to each other and it should end up been one of the most well themed areas, unlike the Dark Forest as you said!  :lol:

the fact it seems to all be falling into place is so, so exciting!
I really hope they do the retheme (for lack of a better word) in the whole sector and make it clear to the general public that is what they have done.
:D  :D :D :D

Does anyone think we'll see the yellow graffiti in the concrete pit, as seen in the game?I think it'd be a great addition as it will make the the coaster look more controlling and menacing  8)

I have said since day one of the Game release that we will see it..... Photo's have appeared today to confirm the paint is going down. Check the construction topic.

I'd like to see the walls painted too. Properly - not a half baked job.

Cue the return of Renny Krupinski!
Seriously thinking he would be great to have for the Smiler videos, the personality he portrays is incredibly dark but humorous, also this would help to like X-Sector together a bit more.

Would love to see him return. Like you said he is sinister and suprisingly funny at the same time.

I still support the possibility of the Washing effect.

I recently remember the first construction pictures and I remember that there was on the pictures of the early pieces of track a box covering part of the ride which is the place for the possible washing effect.

Now if there wasn't going to be a washing effect than why cover up that bit?

Sorry if somebody has brought this same idea up before, I have the memory of a goldfish.

:lol:
