You have to join the site I believe, - And once you've joined the site it will give your unique link.

Same here, King. I like the sound of the competition but can't figure out how to enter it.

P.S Simba, I have done that but it didn't give me that link?

I've not yet been on The Swarm at the front row and would like to know is it worth asking for the front row next time I visit Thorpe?

It so is worth asking for it. It is an amazing experience at the front, and the near misses are just outstanding.

I had fun riding the swarm 26 times, despite losing my voice a bit. But it's amazing at the front though and very rewarding if you do it.

I can easily imagine that you would start to lose your voice after lots of rerides on The Swarm, especially if they are in a row like how you two did it on the 23rd March.

I will most likley never ever do The Swarm backwards, but from this video it does look a little better from this side.

That POV is a lot better than the other one. I would do it but knowing me, I will keep forgetting to get my Pre-booked tickets for backwards Swarm.

You don't need to pre-book tickets to ride The Swarm backwards, you queue in the Brave It Backwards queue and will be issued with a at the baggage area and you will be issued with a ticket to prove you have queued for the backwards rows, which you show to the staff member that tells you which row you will ride it on.

Oh Ok, I'm pretty sure the signs say pre-booked tickets only though?
