As its part of their marketing, thought I'd ask it here;
I was curious if anyone had won anything on the smiler smartphone app?  The spinning wheel keeps teasing me by slowing down and then ever so slowly tipping over to the non winning section. Ha
It's no it's nothing to do with the spinning and more it knows if you're going to win or not, but its still a few moments of fun :-)

Yeah maybe where you see Miles getting subjected to the smiler, maybe making some use of the lighting that was brought in
This is just an idea though

Yeah maybe there'll be some actual ride footage :) I would say with miles onboard but I'm pretty sure they wouldn't have let anyone ride yet ;)

I'm sure this is just me but was anyone else expecting them  to do something big for the opening date reveal.... wouldnt have taken too much for them to set a gobo on a projector saying JOIN US. 23/5/13 and illuminated it either onto the side of the towers or into the sky at night or something like that :/ i dont know... it just seemed a little rushed to me :/

Going back to the videos, I never noticed this before but this popped up before you enter the clues.

A VIP trip to experience The Smiler awaits one lucky entrant.


So you collect the clues to enter this once in a lifetime comp, ride it with John Wardley? that would be epic.

i think the 4th video will be on the smiler site and miles riding the smiler this could explain all the lighing and filming gear altough they might have used that for something else as well

I think that since miles is halfway corrected and has been chosen by doctor kelman to recruit advocates for the smiler I think in clip number 4 somehow miles manages to kidnap trish and dan then they end up on the smiler with miles and become marmalised  :D

I just realised something. When Alton teased us by leaving the Smiler car half way through the track, this was by the 'HALF WAY CORRECTED' sign. Could this have been an early clue/teaser about the latest Smile.Always video, where Miles Cedars was only 50% corrected (half way corrected  ;)

Was Miles Cedar the first test subject to ride the smiler?
Are the test dummies supposed to be representing Miles Cedars and other advocates?
I think this could be largely related.

I think you could be on to something there. It does seem quite suspicious that the car was just left half way for no apparent reason, so maybe it is linked with part 3 of the video as you said :) maybe part 4 results in 100% correction and may coincide with the first full public test and reveal of any remaining secrets. Possibly... 8)

I thought we were all under the impression that the train was left there so they could test the dueling element the following night
