Back or Front?

Do you prefer the super smooth front seat with a great view to a bumpier, faster, and more intense backseat?

It's an age old question. Let it rest.

The front is the best, especially on b&m's u cant go on a floorless without making the wait for the front. On aninverted its the best because there is nothing in front of you and it makes it feel like youre flying, on a hyper its the best because there that hang over on the drop and you have extra boogie left going over the hill.


But the best ride for the front is..... perilous plunge.... Why?????


Cuz it makes it feel like youre swimming....

I guess it depends on what kind of mood I'm in. If I'm in the mood for intense G's then ride at or near the back, if I want a great view with the awesome hang over the first hill view straight down I ride the front.

I almost always hit the back of the train because I love getting whipped around a lot. Plus I like being yanked over the top of the lift hill. I do try to make it to the front of a coaster at least once though.

I prefer the back on basically all coasters except B&Ms.

It varies from ride to ride. If I'm boarding Shivering Timbers, I'll head to the front of the station. If I'm getting a seat on Kennywood's Racer, I'm on my way to the back, no doubt!

Usually on coasters with inversions, I take the front. Otherwise, the back is the way to go.

The middle actually, or the front. The back is where I get scratched (on woodies), it's also the only place I sit on B&M hypers (Raging Bull). The front is the same as middle, but with the always great view. So, I would have to say front then.

It all depends on the coaster, and to a lesser extent on how it is running and my mood. For example, there are days on Wild One at SFA when the front has the best air and other days when the back has the best air.

I think it depends on the coaster. Most B&M rides are better in the front. Most woodies are best in the back. There are exceptions to this rule: Boulder Dash is definitely a front seat coaster while Hulk is best in back.

ALL coasters, except The Force, are better in the back. No doubt, no doubt. The Force is best in 5-1.

My solution: ride twice and you don't have to choose! :)
