    I think the only thing about The Swarm that would not impress me would be the final brake run. Due to the train design it has to take a pretty wide 180 turn after the brakes. The layout is cool otherwise with the inclined loop with a giant corkscrew going through it.

    Rumor: a bolt popped off the ride, missing the crowd below. I need to further investigate.

    Apparently, strong rumors have been flowing around involving Swarm for this Season. Based upon the rumors, two other B&Ms having this happen, and Thorpe posting a picture of the trains covered with a caption of "We have a surprise for you", we may be seeing a 3rg B&M offer a backwards ride!

    After reading about it on Screamscape I've opened up to the idea of the rear seats going through the twist n drop: pretty cool. In reverse I guess you wouldn't mind the final brake run as much.

    From the way this is sounding, this is permanent, which is completely different to the Batman and Hollywood Dream.

    Also, Thorpe has announced that ontop of the back 2 rows being switched, a Stinger is being placed on it as well as a new near miss.
