This is my latest recreation of Alton Towers' new ride for 2013 (codenamed Secret Weapon 7 - SW7 for short), which has now been approved planning permission. Ride has been officially named as THE SMILER. The video has been expertly put together by JAMMYD778, and you can find more of his own recreations and videos at http://www.youtube.com/user/JAMMYD778. As you will see, I have improved my 3D modelling skills and have now recreated the X-Sector area of the park surrounding SW7. You can now clearly see how the coaster interacts with the other rides and structures currently located there. I have also modelled the theming elements as per the drawings released by Alton Towers.

This recreation has been built in No Limits with unique scenic objects designed using Google SketchUp. It is completely accurate to the drawings released to the public domain, which you can see for yourself at http://tinyurl.com/bmo5kac. Some features, however, are still unconfirmed. It is not known whether the ride will involve launches or lifts; I have represented the latter as that is what I believe the plans show. The ride layout within the building is also unknown, so this has been omitted from the video. Despite much debate among enthusiasts, the planning documents suggest this is a Gertslauer ride (being the "same manufacturer and type" as Saw -- The Ride at Thorpe Park) so I have modelled it as such.

UPDATE: Alton Towers Press Release regarding SW7:

It appears the trains will be different to those in the recreation, seating 16 as opposed to 8. Imagine the cars in this video but twice as long.
