The experience would be different on either side of any Wing. Left= Down through inline and closer to plane body. Right= Up through inline and closer to possible fire effect.

I'd choose right though.

Can't wait till Saturday when I can ride this as many time as I want within 30mins. Both sides!

The Swarm was quite busy today when I drove passed Thorpe Park, However Nemesis Inferno and Colossus had some empty seats.

I don't believe there is going to be a fire effect this year :'( because it wasn't commissioned in time.
When it gets added it will be located at by/on the fire engine.
They may add the swarm one in the next closed season when hopefully they will also fix Tidal Waves fire effect :D

I thought media days were for celebrities and the winner of the competition to enforce the coaster and the park, but I did not recognise anyone from that video.

Anyway, This is now open so can we try to move discussion to the new topic in Coaster Discussion. Thank you.
