I guess its a way of getting people talking about it. People in the know will discuss how wrong that is, others will discuss how they must go as its a world first. Win win situation really.

The image was put out by a promoter and not BPB themselves, Amanda has tweeted to say that it is wrong.

Surely they couldn't have put it out without someone at Pleasure Beach checking and Okaying it. It is most likely a publicity stunt to cause a bit of controversy and get people talking about it. Then pass it off as a mistake to get around any false advertising claims. Definitely "inspired by" Merlin's marketing techniques.

It reminds me of an Esso advert!

I am looking forward to riding it later on in the though!

Hahaha yeah, I see what you mean! 

Looks like a great coaster though, although sadly I won't be riding it this year.

Words cannot describe Icon, it destroys every other ride in the UK. It's so comfortable, the restraints are so free, so much airtime (floater and ejector) even in areas that you wouldn't expect. Every element delivered to the max, there's so little time to process what's going on, it's relentless. Absolutely stunning ride, hasn't quite beaten Mako to my number 1 spot, but it's god damn close.

Based on what I’ve seen from multiple people on social media, it seems Icon has had nothing but positive reviews so far.

It certainly does look to be a high quality attraction, and just reading these reviews makes me want to ride it even more, sadly I have to wait until August :cry:
