As all british fans of theme parks will know, Blackpool Pleasure Beach are building ICON, a Mack Rides rollercoaster coming this year and it looks to be one of the best rides in the country:

Back in September 2016 Blackpool Pleasure Beach announced that they were going to build a brand new roller coaster manufactured by Mack Rides. In this series of videos we'll be following the build of Icon with numerous updates from the site at Blackpool Pleasure Beach. Icon will reach heights of 88.5ft with drops of up to 82ft. It will interact 15 times with five other Blackpool Pleasure Beach rides including the iconic Big One, Steeplechase, Big Dipper, Pleasure Beach Express and the Grand Prix.In this action packed update we share footage of the air-time hill that's now complete. We also take a closer look at the work taking place on the incline loop and heart-line roll with the team installing more supports throughout our visit. We also look at the Icon construction site from a new perspective, a room that overlooks the park at the Big Blue Hotel allowing some never before seen footage of the ride.
