    2022: General Discussion

    Would it be illegal access though to pay to get in, then sleep in one of the Smiler trains overnight. then getting to ride it when it's testing the next day? (not a serious question!)

    One of the trains on Rita is rougher than the other - but i can never remember which one until i'm riding it!

    2022: General Discussion

    They're not still waiting for that part surely?...... I haven't reknewed by season pass this year, partly down to the price increase and also because i'm worried that my favourite ride has operated for so long.

    The Smiler - General Discussion

    It doesn't have to be serious issue. Just a bespoke part that's needed, or a shipping issue or something like that. Might even need replacment electonics and there's a chip shortage at the moment.

    The Smiler - General Discussion

    I love the Smiler, it's such a good fun coaster, it's also the key draw to the park for many. So, even if you hate it you should want it to reopen because it means less queues for the other rides at the very least

    Thirteen: General Discussion

    It DID work for 11 seasons, then it didn't. So it's notable and needs to be fixed

    The Smiler - General Discussion

    I was gutted when i visited last week for the final time this year. It was a solo trip and i picked a quiet day with the sole purpose of marathoning the Smiler. However, i understand that it can't operate without getting a specialist part make, and i understand the problems with supply chains...

    Thirteen: General Discussion

    Yes, isn't that what happened before? As annoying as it is they really can't operate it in the rain. It's happened once, can you imagine what would happen if it happened again?

    The Smiler - General Discussion

    Thanks. I can't see it opening today, but thank you anyway. I'm the queue for Rita at the moment in the rain. Extremely slow dispatches today, and Thirteen is closed too so Rita's fast track is affecting the main throughout too

    Yes, the word "shame" indicates that! And it's down again today. Pity, this is my last day here this year.

    General Queue Times Discussion

    Well, it can if not operated correctly, like when they allow a group on when thee's an equal size group in the main queue. Kudos to the crew anyway, Dave was operating it well as he always does, and the smile assistants were rattling through. I don't want to speak too soon, but it's gone from...

    Interesting review! Tell me, does bean sauce (without beans) make you trump less? I'm desperately trying to find a postive.....

    General Queue Times Discussion

    Yes, it was a few Saturdays ago, thought the 60 minute queue would be a 40 minute queue to joined it, but moved painfully slow apart from when people gave up and left. Smiler on the other hand (a ride not noted for queue speed) said 70 and was exactly that, even with the single rider queue...

    General Queue Times Discussion

    I find it - on one station - to be the opposite. I was there the other week, the afvertised time was 60 minuntes, it took 90 to get onto the ride. Meanwhile kudos to the Smiler crew, it said 70 minutes and was exactly that.

    Nemesis: General Discussion

    I was there on Saturday, there was a short stoppage in the morning of about 10 minutes with one of the trains stopping half in and hald out of the station. Never seen that before.
