New from TPW

Join Shawn & Martin as we visit Blackpool Pleasure Beach for the media launch of ICON, the first double launch coaster in the UK. After much anticipation, Blackpool Pleasure Beachís new £16.25M roller coaster ICON finally opens to the public this Friday 25th May. After 5 years of planning and nearly 2 years since the project was announced to the public, the UKís first ever double launch roller coaster is ready to offer guests to the park a unique and thrilling new experience.

ICON launches visitors on an exhilarating journey where they will feel the same acceleration as a Formula 1 driver before twisting and turning at high speeds across the park, interacting with other rides. A second boost of speed will then launch riders to heights of 88.5ft, with drops of up to 82ft, giving even the bravest of thrill seekers an unforgettable ride.

As riders head towards ICONís imposing ride station, they will head through a stunning set of Japanese inspired gates and down landscaped pathways. This journey is accompanied by ICONís original and dramatic soundtrack which builds anticipation for the ride.
