  1. Tonight sees the VIP Media Launch of The Smiler.


    Alton Towers have said they'll be posting a number of photos and other information throughout the course of the event via their Twitter page.


    Along with plenty of other theming elements the "rainbow stairs", that made their debut appearance in the game, have made it on the finished ride.


    The staff at the event have obviously already been corrected.


    The Towers make for quite a venue!

  2. Couple of rather interesting tweets from a cameraman and field producer on ITV's Daybreak.


    11 last night:

    Filming @Lauratobin1 possibly screaming with fear on a secret new roller coaster tomorrow. Watch this space for pictures


    11 this morning

    In Staffordshire preparing to throw Laura around on a roller coaster. There may be so gopro action.


    Looks like they're confident enough to put some of the media on the ride and during the park's open hours too.

  3. A small update for you all:


    Plenty of these boxes have appeared on site and been lowered into the pit.

    ...which appear to be lighting systems, that have been placed throughout The Smiler's ride area, with marketing agency Cake seen on-site.

    After months of being hidden away by banners, the site of The Smiler will soon be fully visible.

  4. also note the reference to submission, also in the x-sector, wonder if it'll get a lick of black and yellow paint


    It's just bringing the rest of X-Sector into the Ministry of Joy storyline.


    Oblivion - Obviously the Don't Look Down and the tilted chair as well as looking at the Smiley face that has now been put on top of the Rehydrator.

    Submission - As you stated it's referred to in the video

    Enterprise - Unless there is going to be a more direct reference in later videos, the section with him walking around the MOJ spiral is probably an Enterprise nod.

  5. We have been made aware of this video and have noticed quite a few people have asked about it – watch it and let us know if you have any thoughts or information to share…

    Quote comes from Alton Towers Facebook page. It seems like the footage is a fake one, yet I must say It is really well done. Deepest respect for the ones who made this. :wtf.


    It has now been uploaded to Alton Towers' YouTube channel.
