I think we just have to wait it out. I'm sure they won't dismantle it.
The Smiler has now been removed from Ride Times. The ride is being dismantled as we speak.
Oh god so it has! I fully epxect them to cover the whole thing up with a huge black tent sometime soon so you can't see any of it at all. Nothing to see here!
Or halves, depending on how many Ice Creams they sell in July =)
But as has sub-terra. What's the problem with that do we know?
EDIT: Never mind, probably just a slight 'technical problem' with the website. Refreshing the page brought them both back.
To chime back in, was defo scarefest auditions in the february, we watched them. They may well recruit throughout the year, it was not sub terra actors. I can 100% confirm this i saw it with my own eyes, i don't doubt they do it up to september, but they defo hold scarefest auditions in feb.
Where have you got this from? I would be highly surprised if they dismantled the ride completely.
I was quoting Kay Burley as The Smiler had disappeared from RideTimes. A joke.
Are you looking at a different ridetimes to me?
It's disappeared along with subterra. Technical glitch.
'Black hole 2 - the return' only in x sector at alton towers
Oh don't tease me with BH! It's return would be like what the many people's reaction to the remake of Final Fantasy VII would be for me!
Look at it logically, who is going to audition in February for a role in October?
Was this February 2013? As it may have been for when the opened The Sanctuary in March April when The Smiler was delayed.
You only have to look back on Alton Towers Careers Facebook page to see the casting calls in August and September. Having auditioned myself and knowing guys who have worked scarefest trust me that's how it works.
This is way off topic.
More mountains from molehills:
"Uttoxeter-based attraction" close but no cigar.
Seriously I don't care what publication you work for, this is not news!
Straws .... where art thou?
Dammit you beat me to it! lol
Hmmm.... enclosing it in a tent would actually solve many issues. The ugly concrete would no longer be visible, the drainage problem would be gone, and as long as they have decent air con in there it could be a much more interesting queue. The Flasher would actually work! Might have to turn off the marmaliser screens though, and replace them with an epic light show.
I think we could be on to something here, do you know any ground work companies that could do the foundations for the tent poles etc? lol
If the tent Mk.II looked somewhat like a circus tent then there could be an inclusion of new live actors playing the part of twisted and creepier than usual clowns, ready to jump out and scare you sh#*less at various points!
they used to have people doing that on the smiler when it first opened, one jumped out on my mate and she almost chinned him, good old northern bird, punch first ask questions later!
