I thought that! Maybe as DNA is what effects who you are and the MOJ are changing who you are? And a DNA strand is twisted and complicated and well... Look at the track aha. :D
Jealousy, turning saints into the sea
Swimming through sick lullabies
Choking on your alibis

But it's just the price I pay
Destiny is calling me
Open up my eager eyes
‘Cause I'm Mr. Brightside

If the theme has been changed, they must of adapted fast! The MOJ seems like a really strong theme! If the theme was originally different, it can't have been too different to the current one (I say this because the Marmaliser must've taken a lot of planning etc.).

I always thought they did it because the DNA twists like inversions!

Thanks for those amazing pictures :) When do you think they will start work on the first life hill? It hasnt even been delivered. I still think it will have SOME sort of launch to it, maybe like Maverick at Cedar Point

It's amazing how compact the footprint of the roller coaster is. Looking good though.

Those lifthill pictures that roodlesnouter took are amazing, I am loving this coaster.
On a secret element note I highly doubt that this actually has a secret element, the section of track after the heartline roll but before the 1st lifthill is far two short for any majour element. My personal theory is that it will be a block brake so that The Smiler can have two trains on layout (1 on each half), two on the block brakes before the lifthills (again 1 before each hill), and two in the station, which would easily allow six trains.

Just had a pondering when i looked across the photos from roodles (which are AMAZING may I add, and thankyou to all the photo posters who do so much for us all to watch the construction of a fantastic ride :D  )


Image

Could these be the same shipping container..... I know that it was probably just dragged in to hold all the bins and theming and what not..... but why include it in the 3D map of the game if it's not going to be there :)........ I shall continue pondering XD

It's a pump room for the various effects, and should apparently be covered.

So we're definitely seeing at least mist OR/AND water sprays from the inoculater then    :D

Which is what I said was happening with the innoculator themeing earlier on in this thread. God it's a curse being right all the time :P

Silos were dug into the ground months ago, you can see them in the early aerials, Im sure these will hold the water for the inoculator and Gigglers effects.
