If and when (and I'd almost bet my cat on "when") BPB decide to renovate or rework The Big One, they will not change its massive presence. That's fundamental to the experience. As pointed out above, Icon is a quality product in many ways, but was almost certainly a misfire, almost a vanity project. So was The Big One, in its own way, just a more sucessful investment; a true icon. A 'Bigger' One redux would attract enormous crowds, not to mention those keen to take one last ride on the original. And they certainly would have a little more trouble discreetly removing it over the Christmas holidays. I remember Nick Thompson saying their were two more major projects planned, ride-wise, as of last summer. Given that crowds have remained obviously level at PBB, and that Icon has seemingly filed to capture anyone's imagination outside of Amanda's back garden and PBE's Youtube channel, I suddenly can't see either of those arriving within the next decade. so with that in mind, I'd rather throw nostalgia to the high winds at 235 feet and ride something fresh. Nonetheless, I appreciate your devotion to the ride, and trust that it's also important to me. But something has to be done in the future. Of course, I'd much rather another large coaster found it's way into the park, but I would much prefer to see The Big One get expertly RMC-ed over Grand National, for example.
