The Smileris a Gerstlauer Euro-Fighter with a record 14 inversions.

Despite the fact that the ride is essentially a string of commonplace roller coaster inversions placed one after the other, (with a few unique ones here and there) The Smiler proves to be enjoyable and re-rideable. The only issue I have with this ride is the restrain system; it's perfectly designed, height wise, to avoid any head-banging, but during the course of the G-force heavy ride, it proceeds to lock in tighter and tighter, crushing your thighs. Overall, still a great ride. Love the theme and the concept. 9/10
