A novel feature has been added to Icon, the UK’s first and only double launch roller coaster located at Blackpool Pleasure Beach.

Opening this month, Enso sends its passengers into a spin literally by adding two seats at the back of the coaster to twist around freely. A different experience will be guaranteed each ride due to the rides unique movements.

ICON launches riders with the same acceleration as a Formula One car and has many close-up elements travelling through numerous interactions with other rides.

The origin of Enso derives from a sacred symbol in Zen Buddhism and means circle – fitting for its riders moving in all directions.

Amanda Thompson OBE, CEO of Blackpool Pleasure Beach, said of Icon’s new feature: “Blackpool Pleasure Beach and Mack Rides have a strong, long standing relationship that goes back many years and has seen our families work together on many projects. When Mack Rides approached us with the development concept of spinning seats, we knew straight away this was an exciting idea, especially as this means ICON is the only Mack ride in the northern hemisphere to have this upgrade. I hope many guests will take the chance to get twisted this Easter with ENSŌ.”
