Attractions ICONALIKES 26 June 2019 by Visit Blackpool Are your looks Beyoncé-esque? Has someone ever done a double take? Are you mistaken for Ronaldo, on and off the pitch? Perhaps your selfies give the Kardashians a run for their money or you’re frequently told that you sparkle like Meghan Markle. If your celebrity status is worthy of an entourage then Blackpool Pleasure Beach want to know. Between July 1st to July 7th 2019, Blackpool Pleasure Beach are searching for the UK’s most convincing, ICONic doppelgängers. The park will hold a three-week social competition across their social channels to find members of the public with star-studded resemblance. Entries will be judged and the nation’s very best ICONalikes will be crowned. The search celebrates the park’s newest rollercoaster and its first ICONic year. ICON is the UK’s first ever double-launch coaster, propelling riders forward at speeds of up to 85 kilometres per hour during an intense, jaw-dropping two and a half minutes of thrills and spills. The two powerful thrusts of acceleration can be likened to that felt by Formula 1 drivers. The competition will be judged by Blackpool Pleasure Beach, and the top three entrants will be invited on park and presented with a Platinum Pass prize, retailing at up to £189.60. The pass entitles each winner to an Unlimited Ride Wristband for every day of the season. To enter via Facebook or Twitter, reply to the Blackpool Pleasure Beach competition thread, upload your selfie and use the hashtag #ICONalikes. On Instagram, simply upload a shot of yourself to your own feed or story, tag @pleasure_beach and use the hashtag #ICONalikes for your chance to win.

We’re so excited to announce this competition, to have fun viewing the entries and crown the UK’s most convincing celebrity doppelgängers. We hope everyone gets involved for the chance to win the very special prize!” Entries are open to all UK residents. The three competition winners will be announced on social channels on Monday 8th July. Each winner will be invited to Blackpool Pleasure Beach to claim their prize. Good luck to all entrants!
