TPW have now uploaded their review of Icon:
Great stuff!
I think PBE have uploaded a reaction video as well, but I can't find it at the moment.

Honestly can't trust a word Sanbrooke says... He's saying it's the best coaster in the UK which we all knew he'd say, but now he's saying that the zero-g roll is the best one ever, and that bluefire's is too fast? Yet he goes on about the roll on bluefire all the time as the best thing since sliced bread.

The thing is, I want to hate him, cos he's such a dork and everything he does has a slight undercurrent of 'Aren't I such a lucky boy?' to it, but I have to admit he's actually pretty good at the whole presenting-a-vlog thing. Fair play to him.
And yeah, Icon. Looks decent, but ffs will someone please upload a POV.

Is it weird that when I watch TPW's videos, I never see any of these things? Maybe I'm just unobservant.

On to Icon, all the positive reviews are making me want August to come a lot sooner, because that's when I'll get to experience Icon myself for the first time, along with all the other great-looking attractions at BPB. Valhalla is another ride I am greatly looking forward to at BPB; well, I'm looking forward to everything, because BPB is just so different to everywhere I've been in the past, but Valhalla and Icon both look like the crown jewels of the park from the perspective of someone who's never visited!
 
You'll probably enjoy it, quite a different atmosphere from AT and Thorpe

The landscaping/theming should be finished by official opening next week. Still not sure about the relaxing garden though. I suppose the whole plaza is a garden, though.
