The Big One is a steel rollercoaster located at Blackpool’s Pleasure Beach. Only a few rides could take on a moniker such as 'The Big One', yet Blackpool’s largest coaster steps up brilliantly. Standing over 65 metres above sea level, this hyper coaster is plenty big.

Since May 1994, The Big One has thrilled Pleasure Beach-goers. When it opened, it was the tallest coaster in the UK and in the world. Don’t forget to say 'cheese' for your in-ride photo as you are whipping around tight bends and through the dimly lit tunnel.
