Smiler at England's Alton Towers to Reopen In 2016

An investigation by Alton Towers, Staffordshire, England, into the June 2 incident on the Smiler roller coaster found that it was caused by human error and not by any technical or mechanical problems in the ride.

The park announced that Smiler will reopen in 2016 with upgraded security measures, including an additional level of authorization to execute a manual override.
