ENSŌ – ICON with a twist

The UK’s first and only double launch rollercoaster ICON is getting twisted this summer with ENSŌ. In a first for Europe, ICON’s rear seats have been adapted so that riders can spin and twist freely during the ride’s existing thrilling duration. 

ICON launches riders with the same acceleration as a Formula One car, rising and swooping through numerous interactions with other rides before hitting a second launch which powers riders high above Blackpool Pleasure Beach.

Walk The Big One XL

Walk the Big One XL takes participants on a guided tour of the Big One which covers many ups and downs of the famous 235-foot tall ride and will take them to places the public will have never been before.

Building on the success of the existing Walk The Big One experience, which allows guests to climb the lifthill of the ride, Walk The Big One XL takes in even more of the ride.
