    1. First ride on Steel Vengeance. Blown away!
    2. Front seat Intimidator 305 at night. The first drop seems to last twice as long, and the train seems to go twice as fast.
    3. Riding 27 times on Fury 325 in six hours.

    I assume you've been on 305 at night as well? I'm a back row fan myself due to the intensity. It's just as good or even better than the front IMO.

    I don't find a major difference between the front and back in terms of intensity, but the front is much better just for the wind in your face and the unobstructed view.

    I finally got a front row seat on a giga. It was Millennium Force at night in early June. The ride came with a free meal which was nice.

    For most of my rides on 305, I'm like you -- I head toward the back. However, at night, the front is just awesome because of that feeling on the first drop of plunging into darkness with nothing in front of you. Also, the darkness just makes the ride feel so much faster as you see the track directly in front of you with the moonlight glistening on the track.

    Changing out my number 3 with riding Alpengeist during night ERT front row in the pouring rain. It was a very wet experience due to both the zero car and the trees dumping water all over you and the ride was running much faster than normal as well!

    1. My first ride on Lightning Rod (August 2016). I think I was laughing like a maniac for the next hour after I rode this for the first time.
    2. All 3 of my rides of Fury 325 (June 2017). To put it shortly, I was in shock by how great this ride actually was.
    3. Full Throttle ERT in the back car (September 2013). I never experienced pure ejector air up until this time.

    I’ve had so many great coaster experiences, mostly in the category of night rides; however, these three immediately came to mind.

    1 - The Voyage at night with trims off in the back row, June 2, 2018.
    2 - Maverick at night, August 2017.
    3 - Riding Verbolten for the first time — a very pleasant surprise in itself — and keeping the track drop a secret from my father, it took his breath away.
