    Already made a joke about rug burns.

    Seeing that gold wall and there's something in there about a vajazzle but I'll rise above it.

    The Great Vajazzle of Blackpool?

    (Sounds like an magic act from the 1920s!)

    It would look better if the wall was all one tone instead of half reflective. Hopefully the reflective parts don't get too dirty as the years go on.

    Nah, the different textures created by the different materials makes the entire wall dynamic and modern - looks great.

    That whole advert felt like it was building up to something but there was no payoff.

    It was dead cheesy imo, too much bad CGI.

    So, hang on, is ICON supposed to be a snake?

    Who Knows? :emoji_confused: Perhaps it's themed to half-arsery.

    Yes, I think it was on another forum but a while back Temleh informed us that ICON is a giant snake that has erupted from beneath the ground at Blackpool due to a powerful dagger fracturing the surface of the Earth. It was something like that.

    I promise this is not a joke!

    Have they never heard of Helix, Manta, Full Throttle etc? A complete and utter false claim, much worse than anything Alton have done!

    In fairness, everything else has UK's first on it, which is a true statement, so it's probably a typo.

    It highlights a complete lack of attention to detail though, proofreading clearly hasn't been done here!

    Should have at least done World's First Roller Coaster if they wanted false claims! :)

    Imagine if a Merlin park done that. They’d be held up on a steak.

    It’s obviously just a typo as everything else does state UK’s first but still it’s just unprofessional missing a mistake that big.

    Yeah that's piss poor.

    On the advert though, I actually really like it. The pink blossom's stand out a bit but on the whole, it's quite good.

    The advert made me think of a sky sports montage, a bit too over the top :p
    The 'world's first' thing, if that's real is very, very awkward. Then again, how long did they say PMBO was the tallest and fastest in Europe for?
