On your butt.

Raging Bull - Back row outside seat.

Viper - 1.3 for the best air.

American Eagle - Back seat, blue(backwards) side.

Iron Wolf- Front, for an intense, smooth ride.

Shockwave- Front/Back. I've found front was just as smooth as the back row, and you don't black out. The only aspect of the front that is worse than the back is entering "Satan's Curve" into the MCBR. Other than that, the front shines.

Demon- Back. Some of the best ejector air in the park. Need I say more?

Batman- Front/Back. Both offer great rides.

Raging Bull- Back/Front. I always used to say back row, but recently I was forced into breaking that tradition and rode front with some friends. The ride is a lot faster feeling, and the trim brake on the third hill produces precious floating air. As for the back, well, best first drop, killer airtime...

Thank You for challenging TOS: The Ride. We hope you enjoy the rest of your day, here at SFCB.

People are saying front for IW. I myself find back smoother. I rode front and back both one time each this year. Rode both with Jeff's method (feet back, lean into the harness) and still had a rough ride in front. Back, however, was as smooth at Batman.

Also, Shockwave, for sure very last row. Front is extremely rough, and the front rows of each car have very little leg room due to the wheel wells.

Raging Bull in the front outside right and make sure it's dark outside. V2 the very back seat, and make sure to look between your legs at the top of the rear tower for added pleasure.

Backseat rides basically all, But Iron Wolf and Batman really doesnt matter. If you ride American Eagle backwards thats all youll really get, its not that fun, its better forwards. Nothing special.

Here are my opinions...

RAGING BULL - Back / outside seat (Best Airtime. My favorite coaster at the park, if not the country)

DEJA VU - Front (Works best with an unobstructed view. One of the scariest steel coasters I've ridden.)

VERTICAL VELOCITY - Front (Can't beat the freaky sensation of almost blasting off the twisted spike)

SHOCKWAVE - Front (The back seat was my favorite when it first opened. The ride has gotten extremely rough in recent years, so I'd now suggest the front).

DEMON - Back (Better air on the first hill... more exciting)

IRON WOLF - Front (Smoother that way.)

AMERICAN EAGLE - Back (or "Front" if you're riding backwards)

VIPER - Back

BATMAN - Front or Back (Back is more "Wild". Front is more suspensful, especially if you're not familiar with the ride course. Both are different but equally exciting experiences)

WHIZZER - Any (all are equal, in my opinion)

Hope that helps...

I dont know why everyone thinks that 1.3 on viper is a great air time seat. It's not! I rode it and in my opinion the back row has much better airtime! But the back row on Viper and The bull are both amazing. On Americain Eagel on blue the front of the station row is much better than the back of station. Thats just my opinion.

Have you ever been to SFGAm and seen Deja Vu closed? If you have then go again and it WILL BE DEJA VU!

Sorry I couldn't hear you, The voices in my head are drowning you out.

Raging Bull - Back for sure
Viper - 1.3 or 2.1 or back, you can ride anywhere on this and you will still have an awesome ride
American Eagle blue or red- Back
Demon- Back
Shockwave- Back
Batman- Front
Deja Vu- 1A or 1B (1b usually only has a one or two train wait every time its worth the wait)
V2- Back
Iron Wolf- Front
Whizzer- Front
Spacleys- Doesn't matter just make a scared face for the camera for lots of laughs
