ICON - Blackpool Pleasure Beach

BST are pleased to have been involved with the Iconic new steel coaster at Blackpool Pleasure beach - ICON.

The £16.25m Icon is a double launch coaster which means guests experience the G-force as felt by the diver of a Formula 1 car. The launch of the ride features acceleration which is 4 times that experienced in a Lamborghini Gallardo. Icon reaches heights of 88.5 feet and drops of 82 feet and has over 44800 hours invested in its development.

ICON coaster fog system

BST were commissioned to design and install the high-pressure water fog system that fills the valleys and drops with thick, opaque, fog so riders cannot see where the ride is heading next! The fog pools in low-lying areas and is pulled from the depths of the earth by the Icon ride vehicle bursting skywards as it launches. With over 300 fog nozzles running at 70 Bar G the system atomises 45 litres of water per minute - the largest fog system in the UK!
