Why the big difference? I've noticed this on other coasters as well and the difference is definitely more profound at night, too.
Hobbes: "What's the point of attaching a number to everything you do?"

On three benchers the middle seat is the place to be but on two bench it's almost always better in the front.
Also, Except for the screwed up trailer trains PTC put out, Track maintence has a ton to do with how rideable it is.
Chuck, who actually preferes the second car or backseat of a car on most coasters providing they generally aren't rough to begin with.
The backseat of a car tends to give more airtime, Twister, ST, Pheonix, Avalanche ect.
If so, I experience the same thing on different wood coasters. I also feel the last car is somewhat smoother ride than any car in the middle.
Most likely that the 1st and last car are being pushed or pulled only whereas a car in the middle is being pushed, pulled, pushed side to side from both ends, squeezed, and stretched ect all at the same time.
As far as the other thing mentioned, if you are riding a train that has 4 sets of wheels per car, choose the seat that is closer to the center of the wheels. Usually if the car has two seats the first seat usually sits more in the center and the second seat sits over the back wheels. If three seats per car the first seat is ok, second would be best and third would be worst.
Think about what you read here then look at the trains, seats and wheels next time at the park and you will get it.
I almost kinda liked it.
I believe that the front is smoothest due to the fact that it's the guide car for the rest of the train. Leaving the rest of the train as just connected cars free to bang around as they wish.
Also, Most trains front wheels are solidly attached while the back is a articulated axel In the front you might just feel bumps on your side of the car but in the back your gonna get action from both rails.
