Pandemonium is a steel spinning roller coaster located at Six Flags St. Louis in Eureka, Missouri, USA. The ride was known as Tony Hawk's Big Spin from 2007 to 2010 and was re-themed in 2011.

Design[edit | edit source]

The layout consists of several segments separated by a brake run. The first segment is a drop into the second segment: a series of S-shaped turns. The third segment is a figure-8. The fourth is a series of hills that form a circle. The fifth is a pair of small hills. The sixth is a helix into the seventh segment: which is a long loop, leading to a massive hill, and into the brake run.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
