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.

This ride is a must do! It is a great climb and when at the top you have a fantastic view of all around Blackpool it's amazing. Then the adrenaline starts pumping with that drop it was amazing from beginning to end really enjoyed this ride.

Hadn't been to Blackpool in years so thought it was about time to return. Took the hubby as he has never been to the pleasure beach before and we went on the Big one and loved it! Didn't need to wait in a big que which is always a plus.
