Built by Arrow, the Pepsi Max Big One opened at Blackpool Pleasure Beach in 1994, part of Great British Year of the Rollercoaster. It was the Tallest, and fastest ride in the world, although the Pleasure Beach claim the ride is 235ft, it has been accurately measured to 214ft, the difference is the height of the Pleasure Beach above sea level! The station was designed by Fiona Thompson - Geoffrey's daughter.
