    Question RSR: Is front row or second row better?

    I've read some MC'ers say that the tinting on the RSR car windshield partially obstructs the view of the AA's and other effects. So are the second row seats better than the front row seats? Is there a difference in the views and overall ride experience between the front row and second row seats?

    Second row for sure. I'd say the best two seats are the rear side seats, and the worst is front and center. Windshield partially obstructs the view within the dark showbuilding, and it seems to block some of the wind on the race part (the wind makes the ride feel faster).

    If it is your first time riding, you definitely have to sit on the sides. I personally liked the front side more, but that might have been because I had the rush of being on it for the first time to back it up. I didn't notice any obstructions, really.

    Re: RSR: Is front row or second row better?

    Of the four times I have ridden RSR I sat in the front the first three times and the back the last time. If you sit on the sides of the front the windshield is not a problem at all. And I noticed that the time I rode in the back I noticed the ceiling and show lights of the attraction which was only a bit distracting, but I never noticed them while in the front.

    If you're tall, the front can feel very cramped due to the wheel hubs. The windshield is not a problem, though.

    Re: RSR: Is front row or second row better?

    I like the second row because there are no wheel wells on the floor to cramp me more so than the view being better

    I sat in the second row side seat and felt like I would have liked to sit in the front so there were no heads in front of me. Then I realized the front window obstructs the view too! Maybe I will like the front side better

    I have ridden in the front and the back, personally I like the back. The wheel well makes the side seats in front a little cramped, but I don't think the windshield obstructs anything. Rear row on the right side is my favorite.

    I've only ridden in the front, but sines I go single rider, I always end up on the side. However, I do find it obstructive to look through the windshield. I think that's the biggest flaw with t he ride.

    Have been in the front twice....really want to go to the back seats so I don't have to look half at the ride...and half through the tint

    I'm really short, and the back was terrible for me. (I was in the middle) The front side was awesome. I didn't mind the windshield, as it was better than the big black block type thing that rests on the middle top of the front seat.

    I like the sides like most people here due to the fact that it helps you feel the wind in your face, tricking you into thinking you're going faster. The middle seat seems milder in the turns too.

    Re: RSR: Is front row or second row better?

    I've ridden in the front left side and the back left side. The front window wasn't a huge problem for me but the foot space was non-existant. There were only two of us in the front one on either side and we were both really without room for our legs. And i'm on the short side. Also there wasn't any handle that i could reach to hold onto up there. The back had a lot more room for legs and i could hold onto the side of the car, however the people in the front row were tall and so i was looking through their heads to try and see the ride.

    Having already been on the ride i would choose the back row for the leg room. If its your first time i would choose the front row for the total experience. If you are in the front it feels like there is no one else in the car.
