Theme Park Insider readers offer their ratings and reviews for Pandemonium, a roller coaster at Six Flags St. Louis. (The minimum height to ride is 42 inches.)
Written by Robert Niles
This Gerstlauer Spinning Coaster (originally named Tony Hawk's Big Spin, then just Big Spin, and now called Pandemonium) opened in 2007 and was designed to have the look and feel of a giant red-and-black skate park. The ride reaches heights of 53 ft and speeds of 31 mph, making it a good coaster choice for the entire family.
Pandemonium used to feature an on-ride video system that captured your experience and was offered for sale after your ride. That video system was removed before the 2009 season.
Pandemonium is a great family spinning coaster. Very fun, fast, and smooth. - Zach J
Good spinner, fun with friends to see who will be going down the drops backwards. I know it used to be Tony Hawk theme, and you can tell there are some little buildings still around that look like your cart is going around on a ramp. I enjoyed it. (8/10) - Lexi R
I'm not a big fan of the mouse style coasters, but I was impressed with Pandemonium. We had an unbalanced car and it seemed like every hill and turn made the car spin faster. You may not want to ride it spinning gives you motion sickness, but if you can handle it, this coaster can be a lot of fun. - Tim Hillman
A typical Gerstlauer Spinning Coaster: the more spin you get, the better your ride. - James Rao
Fun little ride that all members of the family can enjoy. Not much thrills here though! :( The ride itself looks cool from a distance and adds a good amount of change to the park. - Jason Campbell
