you will be subjected to a myriad of strobing multi coloured LED lights designed to disorientate the rider with a series of intimidating screens surrounding you with the Joy Symbol- some displaying subliminal messages such as "Accept Marmalisation".

Like the pictures but is this just another Internet rumour? We've already had the washing machine pics resurface.this looks like you've had an idea and run with it. Sounds cool if that's the world first but is that a world first and is would that honestly be 'it'

I believe that this is Ripsaw Raver's 'The Sanctuary' RCT3 project. Nothing to do with the actual Smiler!

Thats the particular part that they mean in the picture, I think. It will be the top of the vertical lift I believe - that, or it could be for the top of the other non vertical lift.

The crest of one of the lift hills I believe. You can just see a chain channel rising up from the centre of it. It's hard to tell which lift it belongs to though (but I'm tempted to say the vertical lift)

I'd say it looks more like the first lift hill, as its in the perfect angle for the top of the first lift, I'd of thought the vertical lift hill would be half of a circle like SAW's lift but half?

Thanks. I see now. It just looked a little weird because it has a wider arc than I was expecting... but then of course I'm comparing it to standard Gerst lift-hills which are usually sharper and have that beyond vertical drop afterwards. It makes sense that this curve would be shallower than that.

Also because the trains are longer than standard gerstlauer cars.
