Truth. Front is a nice change of pace every once in a while, but people have written songs and poetry about how good the last row is.
I finally made it out to the park for the first time this season. It was a hot day and pretty crowded- so exactly the kind of day I typically avoid visiting in. Managed to get a lap on V2, Batman, Raging Bull, and two on X Flight. The wait for X Flight looked like it would be long, but it was surprisingly fast- always nice to have another people eater in the park.
The reviews of Swarm and X-Raptor were less than encouraging- most of the positive comments were about how visually impressive Wing Coasters. That's nice, but what if the ride sucks? Does being visually impressive mask that or make it better? I didn't know what to expect before I rode. We rode in the back left and back right.
You can count me among those who are happy with the ride. The intensity mentioned in a lot of reviews was probably over-exaggerated, but the ride was just plain fun. I thought the immelman would be my favorite part of the ride going in, and while it was fun, it was the elongated barrel roll that delivered, especially towards the end of that element. The low turn leading into the brake run came as advertised in reviews- nice and forceful. It's an excellent addition to the park.
They really need to do something about that spiel playing in the station. It's awful and it made me want to tear my ears off.
