I was scared to death, watching my 12 year old daughter and her friend on this but she really enjoyed it and was willing to queue for an hour to get on it. She went again a couple of weeks later when it was quiet and went on it 5 consecutive times!!!

This ride is amazing !! So tall so quick and tbh I felt like I was gonna die 2/3 times ha being in such a quick and high ride with only a lap belt and bar is a very unearving thing. But of course it's 100% safe. Was fantastic we rode it 3 times.

The park 100% needs a refurbishment! This ride seems very outdated and doesn't stand up to its' name 'the big one'. It is better for children, than adults.
