Layout and Theming
The Swarm features a sprawling layout with 2,543 feet of track. It’s themed to resemble the aftermath of a disaster – basically an apocalypse – and this is reflected by the paraphernalia surrounding the track, which includes a crashed airplane, partially submerged fire truck and downed helicopter among other accoutrements. The loading station is surrounded by a structure resembling a charred church. What gives the ride its name is that the ride vehicles are designed to resemble drones. Considering that a drone can be 1) a flying robot or 2) a male bee in a colony, in this case both definitions fit.
