    If your height is in your torso then you are likely not able to ride this. They have seats for heavier riders, but tall people are screwed.

    Back gets the most speed but front is the least jerky

    Great last roller coaster to catch before the park closes. The line is shorter than newer rides, and you have a chance for multiple rides.

    Might need a back massage it's a tad rough but she's got plenty of thrill for her rough edges.

    Sit in the front. Middle is okay but a bit jerky. In front, you can really appreciate all the twists and turns.

    Cannot compete with the front, hands down the BEST!

    The front row is always a long wait. Ride the back for a dragging experience. Trust me I work the ride the front makes me yawn.

    The front is the best. Wait however long it takes. You're welcome.

    Ride in the front row for the best seat!! The back row will make you sick!

    You will lose your lunch on the back corkscrew

    The front row seat on this coaster is the best in the park. Get one of the side seats they're the bomb.

    There's a little deck between here and Germany that's a great place to sit, relax, and watch the ride.

    Try this ride after dark for a unique view of the park.

    Start with the last seat. Then go in the middle and finish in the front seat for the trifecta and your brain will be mush.... No ride lines needed for full effect.
