    Is £99 the cheapest these passes will be? I remember a variety of promotions over closed season last year but can’t remenber any prices! Thanks :)

    I would say it's unlikely to be become much less than that.

    He's from Yorkshire, so he is used to disappointment.

    I'm a current Season Pass holder but I have no idea how to get a renewal rate for 2019 on the website. Last year there was a special code IIRC, year before that you had to phone up. (or maybe it was the other way round) Anybody knows?

    EDIT: Scrap that. Just seen this - FYI - do not call the expensive 0871 number but 0333 003 2212 or 01253 341 033.

    Or go and give the till staff a smile on your next visit...I managed via an entrance manager last year. Saved the cost of a call.

    Last year, the cheapest offer price for season passes was at this time of year... £80 for renewals, a tenner more for newbies.
    In the January sale it was a tenner more.
    There was talk in the Icon queue earlier on in the week about winter weekends coming back around south park...anyone else heard anything?
    I should add that this came from my best mates sisters girlfriend's brother...who is actually engaged to someone who works as a senior park manager.

    Were winter weekends included in the season pass?

    No...at least not in the last couple of years...not that I like arguing with tykes.
    The season pass dates specify when they run till, I'm not digging my old ones out to check.

    They weren't dated as such, as the winter weekends weren't confirmed as the time the passes were produced, and rather than print they were valid until December only to shut the park in November they said they expired in November, but I assure you they were valid, I used them enough time's to know.

    Must be who you know ash...last time it was just north open mine was declined...pop only.
    Back in the south park openings when the big one opened it was cash pop only...though that was about fifteen years ago, didnt have a season pass back then.

    I can remember buying wristband for the south end, they switched to north in 2007 to plug Infusion, which was a bizarre decision IMO, and I didn't have a pass that year so probably didn't go, I certainly used it with PBE during the 2008 weekends though, and continuedo to do so when they opened NL, clocked up a ridiculous number of goes on the Streak, but still not as many as I did in 2009 when it was 'closed' lol

    ...and back to my original question...
    Has anyone else heard rumours/tales of winter openings...
    They did it for the Big One...
    They even did it for Infusion...
    So might they do it for Icon...
    Or have people been telling fibs again?

    I'd guess it's unlikely for Icon, doesn't it have an higher minimum operating temperature than most other coasters at PB?

    Don't think so.
    Isn't it just Avalanche that has wheel heaters?
