Smiler is an Infinity Coaster model built by Gerstlauer Amusement Rides GmbH.  It operates with four cars in each train.  With its four-abreast seating, 16 riders can fit in each train.  Every seat is equipped with an over-the-shoulder restraint.  At a cost of £18 million, it was the costliest roller coaster in the United Kingdom when it opened in 2013.
