Should I ride Scorpion?

Where should I ride on Kumba?

Should I ride the front row on Montu?

A far better question is "Should I consider making individual threads for every coaster at Busch Gardens Tampa?"

The answer is NO.

Karly, my 12 yo grandson and I ride the front on any coaster we have a choice where to sit. I thought others would post but since not many have, I'll give you the advice I gave my grandson and daughter when they first started to ride coasters. Try it once, if you don't like it, don't ride it again. Riding the front can be scary because you can see everything coming. Sitting further back blocks your view, so keep that in mind. If it's your first time on a coaster, I'd say sit further back. If it's not your first time, go for the front and see if you like it. Have fun.

Second what Bobby said. Ride it once further back, if you liked it, give the front a try.

I have found that on most inverted coasters, including Montu, the front row is definitely best because you can see everything. In all the other rows you are just looking at the seats in front of you!

To Steve Lee, Why do you honestly care if she is making a thread on every coaster a BGT, does that really affect you in any way? Honestly, you should keep your thoughts to yourself. To Karly, ride in the back first to see if you like the ride, if you like it, try other seats. Just so you know, in the front when ever the train comes close to the ground or goes through a tunnel, It is kind of scary.

First row is always the best :) I think the back throws you around more.
