Although you could be correct (think I also thought that previously), but if Danny was so eager to find out more about Miles wouldn't he just watch the tape on his own then?

A new "videos" tab has appeared on the smilers website (at least I think it's new, it used to say Facebook there).

http://www.the-smiler.com/

It links here, but the page doesn't exist yet.

The new video has digital projection happening, if the whole room is going to be like that then we have confirmation of 3D digital projection mapping at work. The queue / pre ride show is going to be insane.

Ok so they're asking for clues on their website:

http://www.the-smiler.com/videos/

Looks like when more videos are released we'll be able to complete all four clues and get some information about The Smiler maybe?

Anyone got any ideas on the clues?

I've tried the basic obvious ones but many heads are better than one! :)

I know it seems they left out enterprise but he walks around a spiral so that could represent the spinning of enterprise, also this video is rather creepy well done Alton Towers. :D SMILE always

On park's twitter page, more comments were published, now about part 2, it looks like AT is very interested to know what people are thinking about (thinking about this perfect marketing campaign)  ;)

So I'm guessing there may be 4 videos, we got 1, 2 & 4? so everyone analyze them and try to come up with something.

I love the whole clue idea to unlock something.

Okay guys... I have the first clue.

It's: "do not resist".

If anyone else finds number 2 please post it on here? Thanks :)

EDIT: The second clue is: "It's time 2".

Does anyone else think that the clues form a sentence of some sort.

We supposedly have Do not resist and it's time 2

But what could the others be?

I have a feeling the 3rd could either be get corrected or smile
And for the 4th perhaps you belong ?

Let me know what you think.
