Blackpool Pleasure Beach name new coaster

Blackpool, England, UK

Blackpool Pleasure Beach announced the name and unveiled the logo for their new-for-2018 Mack Rides double LSM launch coaster. Called Icon, the logo features a sword as the “I”, a Japanese Kanji character that means “speed” and has the tagline “Dare To Ride”.
