I like to sit on a chair, mounted to the train. Just saying... :D
Erm, change of plan, I prefer The Smiler. Rita's rubbish. Should have thought of that...

Scarefest 2016 hype is all gone... all because of Stan.H.

Nemesis: Front row always near the right. For some reason I seem to bang my head any further back than the 3rd row and it seems worse if I sit in nearer the left.

Air: any seat, for some reason I just seem to get the giggles on this ride

Oblivion: Front row in the middle

Smiler: anywhere but the front, that lift makes me want to cry, same with saw though I just don't like the feeling :lol

Rita: is there even a good seat on rita without a crash bang or wallop :lol

Thirteen: Has to be the back seat.

Rapids: A dry seat without a soggy fag packet or tissue pushed down the back.

Air: front row or back row, any seat
Nemesis: anywhere on the train at either end of the row
Oblivion: end of row front or back
Smiler: front row, any seat
Rita: back row of train
Thirteen: back row of train
Spinball: starting facing backwards
(and because I spend a lot more time at Thorpe Park, I have more preferences there)
Colossus: one of the middle rows
Nemesis Inferno: back of train, end of row
X: first or back row of train
Stealth: back row of train
The Swarm: any row, outside seat
Saw: front row, outside seat

Because I have a disabled access pass I usually have to sit on the back row anyway so it works quite well on most rides :) (apart from Colossus, the back row on that isn't too comfortable)

My dad's always had the theory that it's better to sit at the back if possible - he reckons you get more of a "pull" round the track (if that makes sense?)

On the Smiler front row far left as I can see the On Ride Photo Camera better. At the back, I still like it however it is jolty and the seats feel like they are coming off! :lol
