I think it's a good shout that video 4 might actually be the full length advert!

Or in the order they came out:

Do no resist, it's time 2 get corrected ...

What could be the final clue, because that seems a fairly complete sentence to me...?

My two ideas for the last clue would be either ride the smiler or 100% marmalisation

The last clue could be the opening date, or just "Smile Always". Lots of possibilities, hmmmm...
Smile. Always. :moj

Thinking about the 4th Video would it not be good having Miles sat in the train at the 'Half Way Corrected' Point while Dr Kelman stands on the little bridge with the mystery women from video 3 saying "he's almost corrected" and starts laughing.

We then go to the end of the ride, see the 'process complete' sign and Miles's smiler face.

Was it just me or did The Lord of darkness pop up for a brief second near the end  :shock:

EDIT: Yes that definitely was at about 53 seconds :D

That video is great. Loved the lighting.

I honestly wouldn't mind seeing an abridged version of that as an advert on TV. Maybe just as a teaser or something. Cut through the bull and go straight to saying "this is the world's first 14 looping coaster...LOOK HOW TWISTED IT IS!" Would certainly capture the general public's attention, more than a vague themed teaser with actors, IMO.

53173 - those are the number on the smiler website thate rotate to make up the word SMILE is it a coincidence that 3+1+7+3= 14 so you have 5:14 ... this keeps cropping up is it more than just the the marmalisation processes and inversions or has it just been subtle hints at 5 processes 14 inversions since the beginning?
Courage isn't the absence of fear, but the presence of fear and the will to go on!!!

Does anyone know why they didn't release the HD version of the teaser, you'd think in this day and age all their uploads would be in HD. Also, the first Smile.Always video, it was originally uploaded in 720p, then when Alton Towers put it on their youtube page they only uploaded the 480p version, seems abit strange.

Saves time especially when they want to upload videos quick. A video that long in 720p will be at least 600mb
Signature Pending.. ;D

It wouldn't be anywhere near that big. For example, Smile.Always part 2 video, 1080p MP4, 2:09 minutes, 95.2 Mb  ;)
