    As much as I like people soaking up the water in front of me, I love being in the front and having an unobstructed view

    We always sit in the back. I hate getting wet on rides, then looking like a drowned cat for the rest of the day.

    I also love the view from the back as you crest the top of the flume...gives you that little delay to sit at the top and look out over the MK......and not get a mouthful of icky Splash water at the bottom.

    I don't really mind where I sit. Most of the time I don't want to sit in the front because I don't feel like wearing uncomfortable clothes for the rest of the day. I don't mind getting a little wet, but I don't want to get soaked!
    Hold on to your hats, cuz this here's the wildest ride in the west!

    I'm all about the back-- getting that little bit of air/kick just before you drop is awesome.
    Now, bring me that horizon... 8(:-D

    If it's crowded we'll take anywhere. If it's not we'll request up front. I don't think I've ever been in the last row, we'll have to try when we're down in April.

    I go with the back. Although, we usually only go during the off season when it isn't warm enough to actually want to get wet!

    I answered, "anywhere".

    It doesn't matter. I was in the front.... I got soaked. I was in the middle..... I got soaked. I was in the back..... I got soaked.

    It didn't seem to matter..... I got soaked.

    I'll be there in just three weeks and guess what....... I"M GONNA GET SOAKED !

    Most of the time I'm wearing jeans - soaking wet jeans are NO fun! So I'm a back rider, but I love to laugh at those in the front

    I try to force my kids to take the "worst" seats, but I don't see much correlation in where you sit and who "gets it". It seems the second row "gets it" as much as the first row.

    I think Splash is one of my favorite rides because it has it all: a good queue, great music, good theming in the ride, some thrills, plus it is quite long.

    I really like to take pictures and it is nice to be up front so you don't get heads in the shot. Also, there is a big thrill at the briar patch being the first down.
    It's not 'work' if your doing something you enjoy. Let's just say that I 'work' 5 days out of every 7.

    And why do I work? So that I can take my family to WDW, silly goose!

    I love the ride no matter what seat I get. Getting wet doesn't really bother me either, so I am good no matter where i sit.
