I first rode the Big One when I was ten years old and it is still just as terrifying going up that first slope. The drop from the top remains one of the great thrills I've experienced on roller coasters and I challenge anyone to look down on the way up and keep your composure. If you ride one thing... More

While my son decided he wanted to go on the train because we were a bit short for time, i went on the big one on my own. The lovely couple in front were chatty and we all had a laugh and screaming together atmosphere was great.
