The Big One lives up to it's name. It's massive, and it looks very intimidating. I know, from my own personal experience, that gathering the courage to ride this coaster isn't easy. Believe me when I say this, it's worth it! As steep as the first drop may be, it's not the only good thing about this ride. The ride maintains a great deal of speed throughout, and with high banked turns, a tight banked helix and an unexpected dive underground for the ride photo, this ride is definitely one of the best rides, if not THE best ride, at Pleasure Beach!
