I don't think we will have any mini maramaliser element in the queue line ( still have amazing effects just no giggler for example... ) as that sign says stage two....
I believe they are just little sneaky subtle hints most people won't notice to add the mystery
Like there logo on N:ST ;)
Their just telling you the stages on the ride...
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

I'm surprised there's no maximum height limit though. Seems strange considering how close the theming gets to the track

I think the sign is hinting at a queue line show kinda thing!
Whilst on the ride all guests must follow the I instructions of the Smiler Assistants at all times!
Pre show al a Sub Terra? I'm pretty sure saw alive and sub Tera have a similar warning!
Did anyone else notice the Politically correct way of saying really fat people cant ride?  :D
The seating and restraints within this ride may prohibit guest of certain body shapes or sizes from participating!
Made me laugh  :D
@LukeSavidge1998 I follow back so hit follow button! #getcorrect #excited
We know what we are, we know what we are! Erm.... Europa League winners we know what we are! Doesn't have the same ring to it does it?

I Hope Alton Towers will release the Time Lapse footage of construction, It will be interesting to see what the difference of the Black hole tent being there and now 'The Smiler' being there will look like!

Bit of an odd question, but how much foliage is there? Are they planning on keeping the ride open and exposed or filling any gaps with shrubs/trees? Obviously not on the ride but I mean queuing area. Out the blue but I was just wondering how far Alton were going to go on decoration. Personally I reckon the bearer the better for the Smiler.

It will be a long video, with lots of nothing in places then  :P

(On a serious note, it would actually be pretty cool.)

I think they might cut out 'inactive' shots. On Blue peter, they cut out the night time shots so it ran smoother

blue peter only showed the parts that would be most interesting, I want to see the whole thing, right the way from ground work to that epic light show they did.

I think some people may have missed this, they are talking about the media event and they actually play a clip of what sounds like the indoor queline audio - it sounds awesome! http://audioboo.fm/boos/1400118-rob-and ... ce=twitter
