Whenever we visit the pleasure beach we always go to this one first.. One of if not the best ride there. If your a thrill seeker and love roller coasters then this is one not to be missed!.

Best ride in the park. Did it 3 times, front middle and back, and defintely the front is the scariest. Worth the long trip from Kent to ride this rollercoaster

My wife and I headed to this fantastic recommended place, at 18:00 for an evening out, only to find that it closes at 17:00. OUTRAGEOUS!!! Is this a seaside town or not?

Buy a wristband and get your money's worth! Best rollercoaster in the UK! That first big dip is terrifying but defiantly gets better after the first go! Queues are ok too, not too long.

Hi, What is the minimum age for going on this rollercoaster? Is it suitable for a 4 year old boy? Thanks
