    I wouldn't call releasing the game an "exciting announcement". We know the game exists, and we know that it is coming out this week.

    Too be honest anything about The Smiler Alton Towers claims its exciting anyways. I'm pretty sure it will be the game.

    The game is being released this week, although I somehow doubt the exciting announcement is to do with this.

    Worlds first reveal? Although I'd rather they keep that quiet until opening day.

    The announcement may have nothing to do with the Smiler at all for we know. There's many possibilities of what they could be announcing. :)

    I don't think they are going to reveal the world first at all if that interview I read about with JW is anything to go by.

    I reckon they may announce an inversion record though? Too late for any other park to rectify that, and I'd imagine we will know soon enough anyway - may as well make a big fuss about it.

    It really could be anything ranging from photos of the ride car to various competitions available for the smiler

    Oooh the ride cars, that would sort a few rumours and debates out!

    Please be lapbars ;D - would it be the only UK inverting coaster to have them now?

    OK - so my bet now, is either inversion record, or the fact it will have lap bar restraints.

    As has been said, the announcement could be anything, possibly something not even related to The Smiler. Towers just said it's an exciting announcement. There's a decent chance it could be Smiler related, but I wouldn't be totally certain.

    I think if it was The Smiler related they would have said it was, to generate more interest.

    I somehow doubt the exciting announcement will be buses to Uttoxeter

    Details of Alton Towers Live (6th July 2013) have just been announced!

    I'm guessing this was the big announcement? Shame it's nothing Smiler related, but still great news nonetheless. :)

    OH MY GOD! I am going to literally be glued to my phone for the rest of eternity. From what I can see it will be a bit temple run kind of thing but I don't know.

    Not sure if this has been mentioned before either, but there's a page for the game on the Matmi website here.
