Hmm, If my memory is correct, Saw The Ride broke down on it's open day. It seems to be a recurring thing with new coasters, open days and Thorpe.

Saw did break down on it's opening day and apparntly did it quite a lot.

As I said in the other topic, This coaster is amazing! Front row is definitly worth waiting for.

Saw defiantly broke down on it's open day, I think it was about 4-5 times.
Back to the swarm, I found a pov from the left side (The side I rode and prefer)

Nope, I had just checked ukrides.info and found that they had done video for The Swarm.
I will be recording my own video of The Swarm hopefully tomorrow.
