Fear factor 3/5

Vertigo factor 4/5

Overall 4/5

MY VERDICT

Don’t you think the Big One looks a bit lame after you look at The Smiler or Hurakan Condor? Well, dat ain’t da case. It’s actually really good and definitely worth going on. It’s like a mini-version of Shambhala.

I think it’s good in different ways, like how it twists round on the first drop, and how long it lasts. My mum also liked the views along the coast.

The only reason I don’t give it 5/5 is that it rattles a lot and it gave me a bit of a headache.
