Me and Doomega were able to ride The Swarm six more times when we last went to the park on 11th April, and two of those were on the front row. The Swarm keeps surprising me by how amazing it is at the front.

Me and Doomega did The Swarm another six times on Saturday, and two of those were again at the front. Which brings my total up to 50 flights on The Swarm this season.
I also have just discovered this trailer for The Swarm which I was surprised that it never actually aired on TV, as it was much better than the aired advert.

To be fair, I must agree, Swarm is one hell of a good coaster! I tried it out when I went to Thorpe Park with some mates last week! :) Saw does remain my favourite, purely because of its drops plus shock tactics. :)

That advert is pretty good. Probably the reason it never went on TV is because it is pretty long for an advert.

Me and Doomega also rode The Swarm backwards for the first time today, and that was amazing too, I was really suprised by how amazing it is backwards, and how much of a different experience The Swarm now gives, and I really hope it's been popular enough to keep the backwards rows permeantly, as it was so good.

Bringing my Swarm count now to 55!

Yeah, well I amazed myself and I think Doomega, was quite surprised that I did it too.
The on ride cameras for the backwards facing rows have also been installed but, are a little out time on one of the sides , which is why I got the ride operative to take the pic of me and Doomega before our first go backwards.

The picture didn't load for my first reply so couldn't comment on it. It is a good photo though.

The Swarm is a really good ride, probably 2nd to Saw for me. Plus did you enjoy Swarm on Saturday with Doomega, Simba? I bet you enjoyed your slush puppy after riding it backwards though. ;)
