TowersTimes has been covering the ride since the very first planning application was submitted back in December 2011. We’ve even taken to the skies with our very own aircraft to bring you unprecedented construction coverage of this exciting addition to the resort.

The Smiler is now open, and as such we’ve updated this website with everything you need to know about the ride when planning a visit. Our construction archive is still available, along with the early plans for the ride and a whole host of other media and content.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_video link=”https://youtu.be/5NKFUV_G4e8″][/vc_column][/vc_row]
