Ice Blast (formerly known as PlayStation: The Ride) is a Drop Tower built by US manufacturer S&S Worldwide currently located at Blackpool Pleasure Beach in Blackpool, Lancashire, England, UK. It is 54.9 metres tall and opened in 1997.


The ride was opened on 3 June 1997 by the Irish boy band Boyzone. At the time, it was called Playstation: The Ride.[1] It is situated where the Egg Scrambler was previously.[2] For the 2000 season, the ride was renamed Ice Blast. It has been sponsored by the Tango Ice Blast drink. The layout of the ride was changed such that there were two sides with two seats and two sides with four seats. Previously, the ride vehicle had three seats per side.[3]
