The Smiler

On 6/7/2013 I was corrected by The Smiler at Alton Towers and subdued by Submission.


The Smiler is fantastic and the first 14 loop roller coaster in the World.


Watch my video to see what it's like.


I also was terrified by Nemesis Sub Terra.


I had a great day and even saw Olly Murs and Little Mix at the concert.


My Uncle Les is the oldest person (1,000,000) to have been on Stealth, Saw, Colossus, Oblivion and now The Smiler and survived.


Ticked off Oblivion this weekend (21/09/2013). Went on it a couple of times. It's a good scare as you hang waiting for it to drop. Had another go on The Smiler. It's great when you don't have to queue for very long. Our passes got us into the rides early! Don't miss the gunpowder tubs (they used to be the Teacups). You can get them spinning so fast it's like being on The Waltzer!


Went to the end of season fireworks display (9/11/2013). It was the best ever! Rode The Smiler and Oblivion at night and did Submission and The Enterprise backwards! The pulled pork baguettes at the Hog Roast were great. Will have some pictures and videos on soon.
