As promised here is a photo update from today on a wet but still very exciting park! There was quite a bit going on today, with painting, themeing and moving the cars about on track! Apologies in advance for some of the quality of some of the images (they were taken from my S3!)
To begin, the view from the toilet block
A bit of work was going on the vertical hill but it is now mainly inspection suggesting the hill is finally done!
Painting the mesh (which looks amazing)
Finishing touches including themeing in pit, new signs and a few new licks of paint including on the track (which you will be pleased to hear)
Finally, some overview shots in an attempt to put things in scale for those who haven't been
Almost forgot... they have even invested in their own smiler themed cherry picker!
A panorama of the whole coaster!
After seeing the smiler pretty much complete today, i can easily say this is the best rollercoaster i have ever seen! The smiler is huge but so compact at the same time, to try to size things up the marmaliser tv screen is probably tall enough to fit an average size 15 year old in. When you see it, it is so compact and cleverly designed and everything fits together perfectly! The themeing is amazing, the cars are amazing, the marmaliser is amazing and so is the queueline. Even without riding this thing, I can tell that this ride is never going to get boring! I think they have been testing tonight since whilst I was there they were moving trains into the station and moving some into the maintenance shed. Also when I asked construction members whether we were going to see testing they said you will have to wait and see...
So after my rambling, I hope you like the photos and please stop moaning about parts of this ride because there is really nothing wrong with it! If you don't believe me, go and see it for yourself

And please remember to smile. Always..
