Pandemonium is a Gerstlauer spinning roller coaster located at Six Flags Over Texas in Arlington, Texas, USA.[1] The ride was originally billed as the "total Tony Hawk experience" and is designed to have the look and feel of a giant red-and-black skate-park.

It replaced the Wildcatter, an Intamin Freefall ride.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The ride is very similar to Pandemonium at Six Flags New England, but with a red and black color scheme.
  • From October 2010 to early 2011 the ride was called "Big Spin" and all Tony Hawk references were removed.
  • There used to video cameras in the cars and riders could buy a video of their ride, the feature is now discontinued.
  • There was a cut out of Tony Hawk near the top of the coaster when the coaster was "Tony Hawk's Big Spin".
  • The cars are made to look like skateboards.
