Yeah, it was no real secret, but it's always nice to know for sure!

^^ That's true I denied to believe it was Gerstlauer by that. ;) The Track looks nice and fresh.

Guys, who says it's Gerstlauer.
Maurer Sohne clearly is just using new types of track.

So, it looks very likely that SW7 is going to be named 'The Smiler'.

Merlin have tried to trademark the name; http://www.ipo.gov.uk/ohim?ohimnum=E10993517

The Smiler? I suppose a ride with 14+ inversions does make me smile. :?r
