    Can't believe y'all talking about plastic grass when this is going on;
    https://www.blackpoolpleasurebeach.com/icon/boarding-cards/

    So thats a one-time £25 ride on those dates.

    Currently praying for some soft openings on the 17th and 18th May. Anyone else planning to be at the Pleasure Beach those days?

    What an absolute joke lol
    If you got a ticket before those dates were confirmed and can't make it, tough luck?

    ^ no these are extra new tickets ; the original "boarding pass" tickets (entry and one ride) are still valid (just after the official opening date).
    The VIP passes (early entry) were only ever advertised as "pre-book a date" and they never released any dates (until now).

    (Not saying this is great at all, just a sneaky way of grabbing a bit more £££ - fair enough!)

    Has anyone been invited to the media event? really wish I could go. I would love to interview some of the engineers and designers from Mack. I will be at opening day, so I am hoping someone from Mack might be there, but it's looking unlikely.

    Here is a fantastic YouTube video Icon update filmed by Blackpool Pleasure Beach 2018, featuring fountains, theming, high speed testing and more!

    Only 1 week to go until V.I.Ps can ride, and less than 2 weeks 'till the grand opening!

    Does anyone know the whereabouts of the Japanese Zen Garden Amanda is putting in? But this ride looks amazing at this point.

    Really? I don't mind it, although it looked cool painted dark grey. That fake grass is atrocious though.

    I just love how quickly it’s all coming together now. The whole project is just so exciting.

    It seems kinda surreal that I’m going to be riding this on Saturday!

    I hope this does wonders for the park.

    I love this. This is the Blackpool I've missed for years.

    Spend tens of millions on a new ride - spray paint an old crap bit of therming because... BLACKPOOL!

    It was like the Rhino they had pulling the Cinderella carriage many years ago. It's just so cheap and fantastic and naff and quirky.

    Ride looks good, Turtle looks fabulous :)

    The gold wall is so tacky and so Blackpool so it fits well and looks good!

    At night it will work well with the lit up trains!
