This ride is quality. If anyone has been on Space Mountain in Disneyland Paris, this is far better.

“Scary!”
Reviewed 17 February 2003

Went on the Pepsi Max for the 1st time in 1996, after always saying that I would NEVER go on it, due to my fear of heights. The worst thing about the Pepsi Max is going up - it seems to take forever - and I had to keep my eyes firmly closed! But coming down is brilliant!! Loved the first drop, even though it takes your breath away, and the rest of the ride is brilliant fun. Have been on it about 3 times since, so it can't be that bad...!

“You must go on this ride!!!!!”
Reviewed 3 November 2002

Of course, everyone says that they'll go on the Big One anyday. But then of course, when they get close to it, they don't want to.

I had exactly the same feeling. Being the tallest coaster in the world, i did have some doubts.

Despite that, when you go up the big hill, it doesn't seem that scary as everyone says. So i have just a few words of advice;

Go there, go on it, sit back in the chair, relax, enjoy the view, and have a good ride!!!!!!!
