Smiler crash impact

Alton Towers made national news in the UK in 2015 following an accident on one of its newest rides, The Smiler, that resulted in several injuries, some serious and life-changing. A 2017 survey suggested the crash had a negative influence on visitors, with over a quarter saying they were less likely to visit the park as a result. Attendance dropped in the year of the incident by around 25 percent, although visitor figures are slowly recovering.
