Managed to ride the Big-One, and it has not changed since the last time I went on the ride back in 1994, the year the ride opened. I was a bit younger then, my body made it known that I should now leave this sort of thing to the youngsters.

What do you want to do know about The Big One that you need me to tell you????

It's big, it's fast, it's long and it's thrilling.

Get on it!!

Not as great as it was

I haven't been on The Big One in about 10 years but the last time I went on it it seemed a lot slower to what it was in the 90s.

Awful

Worst coaster ever 😭, I like coasters , scary high fast etc ...I'm not a complete coaster geek, but I have accompanied my partner who is slowly turning into one. This ride was a bone shaker , I actually said out loud .. how can this be legal !? Older rides such as the one in Yarmouth , are no where near as rough. My advice , don't bother to queue , and icon is worth the wait !

Honestly this ride feels more rough and unsafe everytime I ride it. Need an urgent upgrade or at least a little WD40 on the wheels! Best thing is the view at the top

Great views and impressive first drop

This is the best ride in the park, with fantastic views of Blackpool from the top. The first drop down is truly scary. A must for thrill seekers.

An excellent view from the top. My son went on this ride three times and did not have to queue for too long.
