^Seems like an odd name for the location, park, and Merlin.

Counts I305 as 32 credits...

Reminds me of the Coney Island Tickler, but much more sinister.

I honestly don't like the revolving track idea. It seems like an awfully easy way to make people sick (spinning vortex included) just to keep the inversion record.

^^Well, considering this is the park that installed a race-themed coaster in an existing area full of dinosaurs and was brave enough to name it "Rita - Queen of Speed", "The Smiler" doesn't seem that odd after all...

I quite like the spirally eyes and insane-related background to this coaster. Hopefully it will ride as good as it looks in the renderings...

Am I allowed to eat donkey during lent?

That surely brings a smile on my face, but more in a way of I want to laugh at it. But I admit for the rumors it does sound a bit sinister like the smiley logo. I believe it could be true but wait on the official announcement to believe it. ;)

But isn't the new train design 2x4, therefore also making the design an 8 seater?

I wrote the book about donkeys!

There is going to be 2 cars in the train, similar to the Skyloops. The wagons are 2x4.

The Megalite is *the* roller coaster of the world! (after finally riding Expedition Geforce I'll admit it was pretty awesome as well!)
