Is your view restricted on flying coasters?

Is your view restricted on flying coasters, in the sense that you have to sit in the front? Because on inverts your view is extremely blocked. I dont ride inverts anywhere but the front.

So the question is: Do you have to sit in the front on flying coasters in order to have a good view?

When I went on X-Flight (:)) I waited the 'x'tra ten minutes for the front. Felt just like I was flying. But I'm sure the other seats would be just fine. If you looked down the whole ride.

Sorry for the pathetic 'x'tra thing. :)

It seems like you are in a front seat from anywhere on the train.

Yep. Front or back... doesn't really matter. Even the Vekoma guys said so!

If you can, though, grab one of the seats in the end cars so you can wave at the people on the other end of the train when going through the loop. :)

I waved, but no one waved back. :(

It's too much work to try and look really forward, so for the most part any seat offers a good enough view. The back, by nature of the length of the train and radii of the turns, seems to provide the most G's.

coo man chu: I strongly suggest you do ride at least one inverted in the back, if you can: Talon at Dorney. And sit in the left seat.
Mother, did it need to be so high?
