New Alton Towers Rollercoaster set for May Opening
Date Posted: 18/03/13
Alton Towers has confirmed that its newest blockbuster ride, The Smiler, is to open in May of this year.
Initially, the theme park's latest rollercoaster had been scheduled to open to visitors at the end of March, though this has now been put back slightly as engineers work to make everything perfect.
The ride, which was built in collaboration with researchers at New Scientist magazine, will boast a range of hypnotic swirls, flashing lights and other distractions all aimed at fooling riders' minds.
Indeed, according to Alton Towers, this injection of psychological trickery will help make The Smiler "the most terrifying rollercoaster ever", and help further enhance the park's reputation as one of Europe's leading destinations for thrill-seekers.
Alton Towers offers great days out and weekend breaks, with the Alton Towers Hotel a popular accommodation choice due its direct access to the park's scenic landscaped gardens and numerous world-class rides.
