    Ah he really does. Maybe another meet soon? I'm planning lots of visits, thinking it might be worth a MAP x

    I think I will. Don't want to have to consider ticket prices every time I want to come to a meet! x

    PS Thanks again! x

    This may be a bit late, but is there any chance of a lift from Stoke train station on Thursday morning?

    How busy are we expecting this to be? Rumors of 20,000 people seem a little far-fetched to me, but then again I've never been to a ride opening.

    No way. It will likely reach that over the weekend, but I would doubt any more than 10-15k for a weekday.

    I'm guessing that 20,000 rumour being based on pre booked Tickets!
    I know we are staffed for a busy day!

    I have heard rumours of 17-18k for Thursday with over 20k on Saturday. However I have no idea how true these rumours are.

    OK, what time are people getting there and meeting? i.e., exactly how early do I need to be waking Kaycee up?!

    Re: Smiler Meet PART ONE - Thursday 23rd May

    I'm not driving so I can't help, but according to Transport Direct you can go to Uttoxeter station and get a 32A to Towers which could get you there for 9:45am at least?

    I checked train tickets and for some reason getting to Uttoxeter more than doubles the cost of my journey :(

    Check each stage individually, will work a lot cheaper. Would offer, but don't go through Stoke

    Re: Smiler Meet PART ONE - Thursday 23rd May

    Im in two minds about this...

    Part of me REALLY wants to be down for opening and i'm sure i'll regret it if I don't, but driving down from Newcastle will be the furthest i've ever driven alone and i'm going back in just over 2 weeks time. Not to mention everyone I know is busy with college and exams so it would have to be a solo mission :(

    My idea of driving through the night then kipping in the Hotel car park does sound exciting though... :/

    I should be going through Stoke at about 7:15 if you're able to get there any earlier. Sorry if not. :(
