Where would you say the best place to sit on the AT coasters is? Say you were looking at the train face on in the station. Eg. Rita= Back row, right seat.

Where would you say was best?

Well I think it depends on how you want to. Me personally I think##;-

Rita you have to do the front even if its only once

Oblivion Back

Nemesis Both front and back

Air Front

I think i have done em all in either seats but that is what i prefer

Apart from the obvious choice - the back and front row - I'm never usually too fussed about whereabouts on a train or on a row I sit.

The only exception is Nemesis. Regardless of the row, I love the far right hand seats (as you look up the train). The only reason is because as you're thrown over the station in the Zero-G roll, you can really reach out to your left hand side and make out as if you're going to touch the station. This really disorientates me, I love it. :D

But apart from that, meh, wherever really.

Nemesis is best back right seat! It makes the best ride ever!

I really enjoy Air at the front.

Oblivion wherever. Don't get why people prefer some seats to others, you can still see the hole!

Rita at front. I don't really feel the difference at the the back.

RMT - back.

Errr. Corky is less rough in the middle I find.

Spinball - you can never tell! :P

For Oblivion I like the front left seat as you feel as if you're going to hit the ground and miss the hole when you drop and also you are higher up when to turn the steep corner.

On Rita the only worthwhile seats are the front ones as you don't get as good a rush on the rest.

I always attempt the back of every fast ride. Oblivion is the best though in my opinion.

Air: Back row... much faster off the first drop and general. Sometimes like front although queue is always long!

Nemesis: Front... my parents don't like anywhere else! I like the back though.

Oblivion: Front, back... Like the end seats though!!

Corkie: Love the back... less rough and better 'air-time'.

Spinball: Facing frontwards out the station... I've found out it goes on the horsehoe type thingy facing down!

Rita: Back.... much more thrilling and get dragged out the station!!

Matt :D

i think nemesis front row is right nemesis front row is the best because its very windy lol but its a bit disorientating i mean the speed and stuf. Rita on front is defo best . Oblivion is a tricky one because the front aand back both have good and bad things about them, the back is good because the air time and negative 'g' is just ridiculus!!! but the front is good because you can see best and its stil very air time-ey lol either way on oblivion you should allwasy try to get to the outside of the car as possible :)
Keep Moving Forward.....

I disagree. I found at Alton a couple of weeks ago that the front felt faster :?. Dunno how that worked but sure felt it :). Also, the queue for the front has never been long i'v found :?

Spinball you can't chose a seat - it's weight! :P

rita at front. it's immense
notts nat

Although technically if you want to go fastest you should sit at the back of each if the chain lift hill apart from spinball and oblivion. on spinball try to make the load uneven to make it spin more and on oblivion go on front row! Rita anywhere will do but front is best if you have time because you get to see the launch properly.
