No they say ticket holders only, and you get a ticket which you give to the member of staff at the split point and they will let you go on the backwards rows.

On Saturday I will be braving The Swarm backwards and also on the front row, for the first time, I really can't wait for it.

Have a good time Dalek Sec, Me and Doomega are going tomorrow, so I should hopefully be able to beat my count for the whole of the last season on my second visit of the year.

Yeah CoasterGeek me and Doomega were on The Swarm row two right hand side around 5ish, but you may of spotted us more because we did do The Swarm ten times today, three of those goes were at the front.

Wow, you and Doomega must really like The Swarm, and congratulations for surpassing your Swarm Count for last season on only two visits to the park.
I am really looking forward to riding this backwards tomorrow!

Yesterday, I braved The Swarm backwards, and it was absolutely fantastic, you get a great adrenaline rush at the crest of the lift hill, before the actual inverted drop, and it was so fun.

Dalek Sec, did you get round to riding The Swarm on the front row on Saturday, and if so which did you prefer backwards or front row?

Yes I did manage to get to ride The Swarm on the front row and it was brilliant, but personally I preferred the backwards experience of The Swarm.
