“Bottled out on the big one.”
Reviewed 6 June 2014

There were plenty of other rides for us to enjoy. The staff were pleasant and helpfull. We were lucky it was a nice day and this time of year there was little queueing. Maybe next time I'll have a bit more courage.

“Very Pleasurable”
Reviewed 6 June 2014

Good day out. We got lucky as it was a Monday and there was little or no queues for the ride.
Have been on better rollercoasters but it was a good thrill all the same. I would recommend the ride and the overall park provided you were to go on an "off peak" day so as to avoid the queues.

“Amazing!!”
Reviewed 6 June 2014

This was SO much fun. I had always wanted to go on this but I was too young. I went on it with my sister and we didn't have the balls to sit at the front so we sat in the middle. It was SO much fun. It seems like it took forever to get to the top and once you're there you can't help but scream because it seems like you're going straight down. Going up the 'bumps' was fun, but trying to have your arms up on the way down was horrible due to the G-Force. It was such a fun ride to go on though!!

“The big one”
Reviewed 5 June 2014

The big one is the main ride to go on,,,the que,s get very big when on bank holiday ect,,like many other attractions ..is it worth queuing I think so you can't go to Blackpool without a go on the big one and top of the tower,,the best bit of the ride is the big drop at the beginning .
