    Looks pretty :emoji_poop:e too. £80... yeahhhh because all those 13 years old Towers fanboys have a casual 80 lying about for some cheaply produced tat. Most are still paying off annual passes. Poor wallets.

    I'm not sure why I check this thread anymore, it's heartbreaking.

    It's okay though, Icon is a thing.

    I feel like I need to know about this and I can't find it online, what happens?

    Amanda needs her own vlog channel, I'd happily watch her profanity laden on-ride videos. She's the antidote to Robb Alvey.

    ^Amanda's just saying it's horrible because it's an Intamin. ;)

    That's my fear. To react like that when I start riding roller coasters...

    To those who may have the Pinterest extension to Chrome, it's funny how many promotional pictures exist with woodland floor as a background.

    If that was Amanda's reaction to Cheetah Hunt, then I can't wait for her reaction to SheiKra or Falcon's Fury...

    That is pathetic. Cheetah Hunt is one of the tamest pieces of excrement I've ever been crammed into. How on earth did she agree to build Icon after that??

    Because she rode Helix and loved it, apparently.

    She obviously hated Cheetah Hunt just because it's an Intamin. ;)

    Why does Amanda hate Intamin so much, out of interest? While I'm not a huge fan of many of the Intamins I've ridden, as all of their thrill coasters I've ridden have ranged from all right (Stealth) to awful (Colossus), they look to have made some great rides elsewhere in the world.

    Anyway... we need to get back on topic. I genuinely thought this was the Icon thread for a second. So... Wicker Man. Solid looking family woodie, but I think we need some new info from Alton to discuss. They haven't unveiled anything in ages and it's getting annoying.

    Because there is nothing left to say until something actually happens.

    Does she hate Intamin though? Didn't they produce a concept for Icon?

    I was told the PB fell out with Intamin over problems Valhalla had before it officially opened, so LONG ago. PB hasn't worked with them since.

    All questions answered, back on topic.

    How do you know Pleasure Beach haven't worked with Intamin since?

    Intamin were one of the companies who were considered for a new coaster at Pleasure Beach before Mack were chosen to go ahead and design Icon, also Intamin were over last winter I believe.
