Alton Towers Resort has unveiled the world's first 14 loop rollercoaster, The Smiler. The official Guinness World Record for the most loops in a coaster has officially been broken by the Staffordshire theme park, smashing the previous record of 10.
The Smiler, which is Alton Towers Resort's biggest ever investment at £18m, took over eight months to build and the secret world first element has been kept under wraps since construction began back in September. Not for the faint hearted, the marmalising rollercoaster features a series of twisted psychological effects including optical illusions, blinding lights and jabbing needles designed to mess with your mind.
