Travel Tips for Blackpool

Biggest and fastest coaster in Europe

by sourbugger

There is an old saying that Big is not necessarily best...small is beautiful. But when it comes to rollercoasters, size is everything.

You can see the monster that is the 'Pepsi Max Big One' from several miles out as you approach on the Motorway. Built about 10 years ago it's shape was dictated by the fact that it had to be squeezed within the confines of the already densely packed area of Britain's No1 tourist attraction : The Blackpool pleasure beach.

As regards the ride itself, you can buy a ticket just for the one ride (although you would be missing out on many other excellent rides). The ascent of the hill is probably one of the most tense and nervous that you will ever experience. This is partly due to the extreme height (it is the highest coaster in Europe) and partly due to the one factor that no other theme park can replicate : the biting wind coming over the Irish Sea, chilling you to the core.

Then your off, one one almighty 200 foot plus drop...blloooodyyy hellllll.....are you still alive ? Another six hills and countless bends over the next mile or so keep up the action. Nothing however, repeat nothing, compares to the impressiveness of that first almighty drop.

Not for the faint-hearted.
