X...Where will the best seat be?

Friday, November 16, 2001 9:50 AM
Where do you think the best seat on X will be? Because of such a large train the ride in the front and back will be completely different. Where will it be? Give your reason too.

The best seat will be one of the front outside seats!  My reason is that you won't have anyone obstructing your view as you go over the first drop and make your head first plunge to the gound below!

Front seat, because nowhere else will you be able to see straight down towards the ground!  I need to get to California.........

Any seat that does not fall off the train. ;) Seroiusly, any seat will be great if the thing ever opens.

"X" marks the spot in 2001, or 2002, or whenever.

It seem like there will be a big difference in ride experience from the far right seat to the far left seat.

I say the back seat simply because you will be completely PULLED down that first drop.

Who's worried? The excitement is building again, and with good reason...

Inside front seats!!!!!!
That head first 90 degree first drop will be incredible in the front seat!!!!! The only reason why I say the inside is the outside seats will probably produce a rougher ride than the inside seats!

I agree with Soggy, and I'd add any seat that doesn't produce headbanging worthy of a Slayer concert. How can you ask such a question when no one has ridden it yet?

I dont care.  I jus wanna ride the darn thing.  Coaster101, 2025.  The same thing happened with all the Deja Vu's and people complained like crazy.  But they got all the Vu's open and they are safe.  Shame on you!

Headbanging won't be an issue with the restraint types.

OK...ummmm, first off, my name is Coaster131.  Secondly, can't you see a joke when it is blatantly put up?  Why does no one have a sense of humor nowadays?

I agree with Coaster131...and as far as the best seat goes, I really think we should wait unil people actually get to ride it, everything else is just pure speculation (well there's nothing wrong with that, but as for the truth we'll just have to wait).

Well actually, Ravenguy98, that's one of the reasons the ride hasn't opened yet, it because some Arrow test riders complained about bad headbanging against the back of the seat.

Not quite true, no one complained. Arrow themselves express concearn over the vibration of the trains on the second Raven turn, especially on the outside seats. I think the word "headbanging" is so over dramatic and I'm baffled as to why enthusiasts have adopted such a dangerous word. If people were "banging" their heads on rides, there would be damage, there would be lawsuits, there would be ride closures.
