So I have a new email.....

We won't get our smiler preview till Thursday morning before everyone and I have work .. So looks like il be taking my free fast pass to ride on Friday... Such a let down I won't get to 'preview'


Fast passes wont be available for The Smiler straight away . So unfortunately the fast pass you may receive is not eligible for the Smiler. Unless AT are putting Fast passes on ( logically they should do ) and the people on here who said fast passes wont be in action are lying :/

It could just be an exclusive thing for any competition winners who can't make it Thursday morning. Fasttrack will not be available to everyone until later in the season, or possibly not until next year.

Thanks Boz ;)

As Reece says, the Park have just confirmed it'll be a Thursday morning preview:

Hello,

Unfortunately due to the tight timescales over the coming days, the preview cannot happen until Thursday morning. Whilst this is of great disappointment, I am sure you will agree that it’s important that the project isn’t delayed and is open fully from Thursday.

So the alternative suggestion is that I meet you at the turnstiles on Thursday morning at 8.30am, I will then walk you into the Theme Park a whole 30mins before Early Ride Time guests are admitted to the Theme Park. We’ll go down to X-Sector and we’ll see if we can get you onto the ride before public are admitted, this will all depend on the ride being ready to run. Whilst I can’t guarantee that you’ll ride before 10am, we’ll do our very best to get you on!

Let me know if you can make it.

Possibly yeh. However imagine the people queuing like normal in the queue line and see Reece and co walking right through the Fast pass track with ease ? Everyone will be like oo fastpasses are available ! Wonder how we can get them and AT probably wouldnt want the hastle ! :/ but it could very well be an exclusive fast pass

It said in the competition prizes that should you be unable to attend for the preview (people do have work and other commitments) that the winners would be offered an exclusive fastrack for the smiler which are not available until later this season or next season to the general public, they won it so they should be entitled to it! Enjoy it Ben and Reece, jammy sods!

can see the queue times being silly long no matter how many people are in it, have a feeling this is gonna break down a lot.

EDIT: And that pic 11 is of a covered Ice Cream Truck !! -.-
