    It's been confirmed the smiler won't be opening today. That's 5 days now. I'm sure towers would've hoped to have it available again by this weekend however that's looking very unlikely now

    You say this, but every ride will have a day where it suddenly opens after it's been closed. Nothing indicates it won't be tomorrow. It might not be, but Mixtape just opened again after the same amount of time closed.

    Mixtape was closed at opening time today after being closed for 3 days, but opened a little later. Smiler could be the same today, tomorrow or next week. We just have to wait. :)

    Smiler isn't opening today towers confirmed on twitter. It could open tommorow but I'm not sure as they could be waiting for a part or something. It's clearly a significant issue and we'll see if they're able to get it resolved by tommorow

    We'll be heading to X-Sector first - we always start with The Smiler and then do the others in the area at Scarefest - so we'll be doing Oblivion, Enterprise and Mixtape regardless. I'll post on this forum if I can regarding its status tomorrow.

    Been watching videos of Smiler to get myself psyched up for my first ride in just over a week! :)

    Apparently Gertslauer have been on site today and The Smiler was testing with its water dummies for a few hours - looks like its a comment from someone on park. How accurate this is, I don't know.

    I'd take that with a pich of salt Ethan. It'll be open when it's fixed. :)

    It's testing. Which the rest of the week it wasnt. So it's a big step towards reopening. As long as its open next week I'm happy

    It's the only ride I'd be disappointed if it was closed to be honest, which is why I'm just keeping everything crossed for tomorrow at this point.

    Yes, but that's only speculation. You'll only know if it's testing if you're actually on park.

    This person was on park, its a comment under a post which says something along the lines of "it was testing with the water dummies and then there were no signs of life after" and another one said something like "Gertslauer were there earlier hope it's not too serious". You're correct that it's all speculation, but these are two different people, so who knows.

    To be honest I'd be more disappointed if Nemesis was closed than the smiler. Going Towers without Nemesis just wouldn't feel right to me.

    Well, Danscott is going Saturday. So, I could still be right about it being open :D
