Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I'm 41 and live in Blackpool. I watched this ride being built as a kid and have been on it many times over the years inc 31 times this year. I have a piece of the original '94 track as a doorstop in my kitchen. As you climb to the top you get stunning views across the fylde coast. Look to your left for the worlds biggest mirrorball or to your right to see the UK's only surviving Victorian era tower or straight on to watch the sun bounce off the Irish Sea. The first drop is intense. Like nothing else I've ever done or been on. The scale of it is ridiculous. The rest is fun but it is an old ride now and you do get smacked about. It doesnt stop me going on it at every oppurtunity. the rough bits are where you would expect when a dramatic changes to the track like the dips between two climbs. I know when to tense my core and find it amusing listening to a chorus of moans. When it is quite though half the people go straight back on it which speaks volumes.

Haven't been on the Big One since the mid 90s when it first opened so not sure why it's come up as a suggestion..... but in all fairness, it was a great ride

A bit of an old ride now but still the one that everyone wants to go on. Worth queuing for. A bit rickety!

Terrified!
The big one got stuck last week at the top
Don’t go on!
It is so annoying if you measure exactly 1.32m as they don’t except you as it probably is 1.4 in actual height.

Been on this when I was about 15 and was so excited. Been to ride it about 5 times since and every time not been able too due to wind or mechanical issues.

I am a theme park exthusiast but this coaster scares me. It is overwhelmingly fast and the track doesn't feel like it can support the speeds. With only a lap bar it is so scary. Obviously this goes through vigorous testing but it definitely make me nervous. Well worth giving it a go if you're in Blackpool
