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

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.

On opening, Tony Hawk's Big Spin was equipped with video cameras in the cars. Riders could purchase a DVD containing a video of their ride.[1] This service has since been discontinued.

Trains

8 cars. Riders are arranged 2 across in 2 rows for a total of 4 riders per car. The cars are made to look like skateboards.

Trivia

  • From October 2010 to early 2011 the ride was called "Big Spin" and all Tony Hawk references were removed.
  • There was a cut out of Tony Hawk near the top of the coaster when the coaster was "Tony Hawk's Big Spin".
  • The ride changed from a standstill station to a moving station in 2012.
