Alton Towers goes super Sonic

  • @RebeccaJ

While some stars become the face of a fragrance line or launch high-end restaurants, Sonic has gone one better by becoming the spokeshedgehog for the Alton Towers’ ride, the Spinball Whizzer.

The Whizzer – which henceforth will be known as the Sonic Spinball – has had a makeover and will be reopening on 13 February. While the spiky herowasn’t available for comment, it’s likely that he’s going through a rollercoaster of emotions at this exciting new phase of his career.
