My only complaint with the golf (have not seen it yet in person as it was not open last time we were at Alton) is that it seems that it's not open much past the theme park opening times.

I'd love to go and play after the park is closed but I think you had to be there within 30 minutes of park closing to be allowed to play.

Oh well, I guess we'll all just hang out in the bar instead!

Wow nice one Rob!

As said there is another sonic game coming out this year so its got to be a sponsorship deal.

I hope they go with the classic theme and not a newer sonic

I love donkeys more than me.

I just meant that Sonic isn't exactly a mature theme, considering that Spinball is leaning towards the more intense side of family coasters.

Sonic does suit a spinning coaster well, maybe I just have a soft spot for Spinball Whizzer, simply because it was to do with a Who song. :oops:

I think Intamin should make a donkey!

Although it doesn't reveal anything new, here's the page from the park's 2010 booklet which talks about Thirteen.

You know what, as long as Sonic Spinball has chili dogs and classic smart-ass Sonic, I'm satisfied.

I think it's a great idea, I too love Sonic. Besides, if it were Mario, there might be an uproar...teaching kids to eat mushrooms to grow big and such... :P

I think there's one or two or you on this thread who are taking this way to serious...or that's the impression I'm under.
YES! YES! YES! YES! YES!'
