she is in the original one the first one we ever saw back when it was only a story this one http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=pl ... UFWBN9xSIQ


The text styles are the same, the time counter the same font and style, the facility looks similar. It's definitely the same company behind them.

I have to say I like these adverts now, now I know that they are 'real' and not fan made, still think the acting seems a little forced :/ but I think if normal UNI students were to produce a documentary then it probably would end up something like this :/

I must say the video sequence is absolutely FANTASTIC and I think the ride quotes are a great idea, I was concerned about the whole back story seeming a little forced but I think it's actually quite a nice one.... Intricate anyway :)

I think that video we saw months ago was that marketing company giving towers an idea of why they could do and to such a standard as well.... Would be great of we had that video interspersed with ride footage....

Also I know it wouldn't ever happen but imagine if they could persuade BBC news/ ITV NEws to spa missing persons report regarding the 2 students in the tapes :/

All ideas anyway :/

P.s is it just me that automatically thinks of Assassins Creed when Dr Kelman is doing the DONT LOOK DOWN MILES thing :D haha


Keep calm and carry on smiling :moj

On the old video it says it is in the early 1900s, surely it can't be linked to the new ones?

It says at the beginning, and I quote:

Unexplained human experiments took place at a facility located near Staffordshire, UK, before it was condemned and closed in the early 1900's, never to reopen. But the experiments never ceased.

The following is footage recovered from that facility.


Therefore, the girl in the original video could be Trisha and revealing her fate. The video says that, though the facility was closed, they didn't cease their experiments. Therefore what better place to conduct secret tests on people than in a supposedly closed facility?

An interesting point is that the "leaked" video and the Kelman scenes in the new video were all filmed at the Victoria baths in Manchester. Obviously easier for TBWA being based there.

Your right on the money there, searched victoria baths in google and found the hallway from the test subject 237 video. (might not be the exact one but it's definitely there)

I think the old video could be an early edit of what is to come because of the lack of MOJ graphics.

Mabalzich I went in a google spree too and I think I've found the same one. It has the same drain pipe and the door on the right. I think we can pretty much say that all viral promo was filmed here and that this is trisha :)

The clock in the corner jumps back to 5-21 a couple of times. Connotations of 'the smilers' opening date maybe ?

It actually starts at 5:14 i keept pausing it until it restarted and could just make out the 14.

In the video when the patient is hanging over the edge and dr kelman is saying dont look down, he is holding an image of the smiler, remember the fanta logo being changed to the smiler image. The MOJ have taken over.

Also i think the krave boxes may have come out too early as AT would have wanted to release first 14 looping coaster in their press meeting i am sure. Still at least its confirmed now to having 14 inversions.

I hope to GOD that the "World's first" isn't the inversion count. It's technically not even right, the coaster doesn't LOOP 14 times, it just inverts, hence why I'm not too sure that this is the world's first.

If it is though, slightly disappointed, but not that much - we've still got a bloody 14 inversion coaster!

I don't think the 14 Inversions is the actual worlds first, we had JW confirming the world beeting, and then talking about world's firsts in a different sentence... Then we had a woman on site (official) on track completion day, telling us the same thing, that there was still a secret...

Theme Park Collective have just posted to Facebook saying that they are promoting the smiler as the world's first 14 looping coaster. Makes you wonder what the 7 extras are in the game.
