Best Seat in the House: New Mexico Rattler

Thursday, September 18, 2003 8:58 PM
I am going to cliffs on Saturday and was wondering for first ride, should I sit in front or back seat, both look like they'll off great rides, although the front looks like more moments of air, the back looks like my sustained air. Please tell me!!!!!!!!

!!!!!OMG!!!!! lol.... <rolls eyes>

As with any coaster, the front will give you ejector, the back will give you floater and a longer first drop. If it's 3 benchers, 1-3 will give you massive ejector. It's not like you're only going to get one ride on it. Try it in different spots and power ride the one you like best.

That's not always the case, Andy.

Actually you'll get floater and ejector air in both the front and the back, and many times on the same coaster, it just depends on the shape of the hill and the speed of the train. Cornball Express is a good example of one that offers both sensations at both ends of the train....Timber Terror is another.

But I agree...try it in different spots. Me? I almost always ride back row first on woodies.

I found the back to be better, but it really doesn't matter too much, because it's all good.

I was at Cliff's on a Saturday in June and the line was only twenty minutes; even with slow ops. As for seats, my only two rides were in the very back.

Moosh - True, some coasters (Phoenix and Dash come to mind) have pretty ejecting air in any seat, but you'll get sharper, quicker air in the front and less intense, more sustained air in the back on any coaster.

Ride most Intamin hypers and the air gets both bigger and sharper the farther back you go in the train. Then there is Skyliner at Lakemont with only a little air in the back and sharp air in the front. And of course Phoenix give absolutely wild ejector air in car 1 row 3. There just aren't any simple rules. It depends on the contour of the hills.

I suppose my analysis was for symmterical hills (same curve entering as exiting).
