About Pepsi Max Big One

  • Manufacturer: Arrow Dynamics
  • Ride Type: Roller coaster
  • Park: Pleasure Beach Blackpool

The Big One is a steel roller coaster located at Pleasure Beach Blackpool in the United Kingdom. The ride was originally manufactured by Arrow Dynamics, a now defunct steel coaster manufacturer. Construction of the ride began in September 1993 and lasted just over 7 months. The tubular track and supports were airlifted from Bolton to Blackpool and stored in nearby Blackpool Airport. During the start of the construction of the ride the south of Blackpool promenade was closed and pieces of the structure were stored on the road adjacent to the Pleasure Beach. The first pieces of the ride to be fitted were the large foundations that would follow on from the main supports. Once all the supports were fitted the tubular track was fitted followed by additional supports on the turnaround and the mid course brake section. The ride opened to all the public on 28 May 1994. The finished ride cost £12,000,000 ($19,669,316 USD) to build and is the second biggest ever investment for Pleasure Beach. The ride is the second "Megacoaster" to be built by the Arrow Dynamics company, the first being Magnum XL-200 at the Cedar Point amusement park in Sandusky, Ohio, US.
