The bit with the video, water and leg ticklers? smells too if I remember right. A real assault on the senses.

Video was done in similar style to this.  Image

Anyone else noticed that that GIF, has a very similar style to the oblivion videos?

Yep I have.
However the bits they show are blue-prints or biological diagrams.

Striking similarities however.

Ok not technically official, but heres me doing my bit as a willing advocate to promote The Smiler,Marmalisation and The Ministry Of Joy through my old badge maker, not a kiddy plastic thing but an actual badge maker, and i realised i havd 4 extra clips left so i made some unofficial memorobilia. Before anyone gets on the copyright high horse, im not selling these and not gaining any profit, so effectivly its no worse than having the smiler background on your phone..

Hope you all like them.
Ministry of Joy logo is the work of Project Towers =]

Those are really cool! Well done.

If anyone has issue with them they need to seriously get a life.

I did too, perhaps this is hinting that within the station an Oblivion style video will be played, even though it may seem like copying it would work extremely well and would suit The Smiler.

I know its not much of a contribution but for the peepy holes, the Smiler logo could be right on it so your eye goes on the Smiler eye!

I'm guessing that the room will probably have no major effects e.g actors or smoke effects as these are most likely seen at the scarefest
The Smiler is Coming...

I think the rooms should be open for the start of the season so that they can advertise the new ride for people who are just staying in the hotel and who might not know much about The Smiler although it's virtually impossible to not know about The Smiler due to all the marketing all over the country.

If on the bed they could use 2 pillow cases with the spirals on and with the smile on the duvet it would work well, Smiler logos plastered all over the walls, a fake cctv camera in the room and a TV saying welcome subject SW7-2013 to your new home :D, something creepy as if you've been placed in a mental institution......

Also i think a washing machine in the corner would work quite nicely...............

Well it did never actually mention a specific date in February but I presume that in a couple of days maybe, they'll release an actual date for when the game comes out.

Not sure if this is the correct place to put this, but here goes!

Im travelling to The Resort for my 21st on April 27th/28th. Obviously was trying to get on The Smiler but since the date has been pushed back to May, that will probably not happen.

I just wondered if anyone knew of Alton Towers doing any sort of soft opening with rides, opening a possibility to get on the ride.

I know TH13TEEN was rushed right up until the morning of the opening, but I thought I would ask!

Thanks!
