The Pepsi Max 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, and was sponsored by the soft drinks firm Pepsi, under their brand of Pepsi Max until 2011. The ride cost £12,000,000 to build and is the second biggest ever investment for Pleasure Beach, beaten only by Valhalla, the most expensive dark ride in the world. At its highest point above ground level, the ride reaches 213 feet (65 m) with the first drop measuring 205 feet (62 m); the ride is marketed as being 235 feet (72 m) high which is the height from mean sea-level. It is also one of the longest out-and-back roller coasters, measuring 5,497 feet (1,675 m), which is over a mile in length.
