New on here! I reported him yesterday too as when I went to bed at 11:30 he was not on the leader bored but when I woke up at 7:30 he was on over 4000 clicks very suspicious!

Hopfully Thorpe will find out soon.

Oh well, took a few days for Thorpe Park to remove last cheater so not long hopefully

Said I would post my opinions of The Swarm once I had been on, and was hoping for someone else to post as I can't seem to find the "edit" button! but if I don't do it now I never will!
The Swarm - I was worried about riding, Due to my Herculesesque frame... (did I say Hercules... I mean Mr Blobby)
Approched a Ride Op at the Batching point and was told that all seats were the same (Sorry Thrillmad) HOWEVER all the seats are the same in a good way, being of the larger size to begin with so Happy Days!
Rode 2 Times - Front Seat Right - Which is not what this topic is about (but amazing all the same). and Backwards Left.
I have a problem with it being backwards.... It just feels too much like a gimmick (which it is), after the drop, which it does really well, the overall ride experience is ruined.
There is nothing which makes me say "that was amazing" (apart from it made my wife feel really ill and kept her quiet for a bit, but thats another story...)
I hope they return The Swarm to it's full forward facing position next year and the Gimmick is just a 1 off. It's not worth the what will be a horrible Q time.

I also noticed 2 other B&M coasters this year have had reversed seats which means B&M must be testing reversed seats on 3 different types of coasters: wing rider, sitting and inverted coasters. The near miss billboard is great, however the ride is themed on a British village and a massive billboard in a village seems a bit weird to me, also the near miss board doesn't effect the last two rows and mainly effects the front row.
