Yeah, I did really enjoy the slush after my first ride on The Swarm backwards, and yeah both me and Doomega had a fantastic time.

Swarm backwards must of been very exciting Simba, do you prefer going forwards or do you prefer going backwards.

Personally I prefer forwards on The Swarm, even though backwards was amazing, and I would do it again backwards, I wouldn't personally wait for it if it had a very long queue, and as it has a lower capacity and slower throughput per train it can have a very slow moving queue line for backwards

Personally I have equal liking for forwards and backwards, they are equally awesome in my opinion.

I had a feeling you had equal liking for both forwards and backwards Doomega. It was really fun doing backwards with you for the first time on Saturday, and I am very pleased that we did end up doing it.

On Thursday 31st July 2014, I took Skittysrule on The Swarm which conquered her fear of Rollercoasters. Today two weeks later (14th August 2014) we rode The Swarm twice and she was brave enough both times to ride it on the front row today, and she loved the experience on the front row both times despite being nervous the first time!

I had an amazing day at Thorpe Park, I spent the entire day on The Swarm, and rode it 36 times and it still hasn't got old. My new record of 36 is 10 more than my previous total of 26 which I set on the 23rd March 2013. If you hadn't of worked it out by now I am still in love with this coaster.

36 goes in one day, seriously how could you even cope with just riding a rollercoaster that many times without getting bored of it.

I think everyone on here probably knows that you love Swarm.

Quite easily Eclipse, you just have to put you're mind to it, and go to a theme park on an "off-peak" day so that the park is insanely quiet. Next year I will attempt to beat that record.
