After well over a year of construction and speculation, The Smiler has finally opened at Alton Towers. We had over 12,000 posts on the ride, and the various threads amassed over 800,000 views! Thank you all or making the discussion so diverse, interesting and fantastic to follow! As the ride is now open, we have created the single thread in Alton Towers General Discussion for you to use to continue any discussion on the new ride. All the old posts and discussions on The Smiler can be found in the Planning Portal section of the forum for archive purposes. EDIT: If you want to leave a review for the ride, the Review Thread is still accessible on this board.
