The Smiler by mitchika2 The Smiler by mitchika2
Probably the only decent picture i took while at Alton Towers in March 2016 - ignore the random family in the foreground, i had to blindly take the picture because we were being rushed around to other rides.

I really wanted to get the Smiler trains dueling but if i had waited a split second longer i may have gotten it or missed it completely. Train A is in the bottom left and Train B is clearly visable.

Oh my days - its the most fun thing iv ever been only - pretty good for my first true rollercoaster, what a way to start. I only managed 4 rides over 2 days because we didnt really have a plan outside of going anti-clockwise around the park (so yes, Spinball Whizzer and then straight on The Smiler - i was terrified).

All the pictures i took were on my Ipod touch, its camera is much higher quality than my Galaxy Ace 4. Too bad i didnt get any decent videos, i have a bit of the vertical lift hill and a video from inside the outdoor queue but i didnt get many opportunities around the park.
I really want to go back to Alton Towers, this was from my first and currently only time at the park and it was somewhere i wanted to visit since the AIR adverts! thats like... 2004... i would have been... 9 years old!

People keep saying "go to Thorpe" or "go to America" and im like - no, Alton Towers is the only place i care about, its my baby, you dont understand - its the only one iv been wanting to visit since i was a child.
From what iv seen, the Black Hole looked boring and im glad this replaced it - its now the 2nd most iconic ride at the park, rivaling the flagship status of Nemesis.
