    If it did end up being real I wouldn't be surprised if it was to do with a show in the Casino or something.

    Some people seem to reckon it's teasing an Intamin Gyroswing, as one of the cogs looks like one.

    But whatever it is, the teaser is certainly exciting, in my opinion!

    It can't possibly be exciting because it isn't real.

    I've seen some comment that this is "too high quality to be fake". Let's not forget we've had teaser videos for the likes of The Smiler created in the past as a bit of a joke which were so professional looking they were taken extremely seriously. For someone experienced in Photoshop, a still image like this doesn't take all that long to knock up.

    If this was in the source code of the site, where's the accompanying source code? When was it picked up and why didn't anyone else see it? As Danny mentioned this is Blackpool, who's marketing for Icon was less than innovative to say the least.

    I'm calling closed season fun on this one, although finding it hilarious some social enthusiast accounts are getting excited over this without any proof whatsoever :p.

    As with the RMC Grand National image, it's fake!

    It's been fun watching the speculation and hype over an unofficial image though.

    It's not real. Honestly. Not real. You do realise that all walks of life like theme parks including say ooh maybe a graphics designer or two.

    Really not sure what to make of this now. Amanda just tweeted this 3 minutes ago yet I'm struggling to view the Tweet again? Either way.... interesting that they've taken inspiration from EP over their dinner show.

    I don’t know about you, but this is certainly exciting, in my opinion.

    Given there's a very rough outline/overlap of white shades around the profile pic and name at the top. Its clearly a faked image of a tweet.

    I’ve spoken again to the guy who “found” the image, and I’m really doubting it’s legitimacy to be honest, not least because I just found out that they were one of the people who were involved with the RMC Grand National “joke”. So yeah, I think it is probably fake. :(

    No, Amanda herself was in the ice crea van! Time Traveler is an excellent ride so I am very excited for 2020 at Blackpool Pleasure Beach. Going for an identical layout and theme is pure genius!

    I can’t think of anything worse than a spinning coaster at BPB. A spinning mouse would be the ultimate insult!

    Maybe they're buying Spinball from Alton? Yeah let's start that rumour today.
