How many of you have heard of Joypolis? Joypolis has been somewhat of a must travel destination for many older Sonic and Sega fans, a huge indoor theme park full of Sonic and Sega related rides and attractions.
Well Sega have opened a new park, in China, and it has 3 new Sonic theme arcade games/rides.
The attractions are as follows.
Sonic Tropical Resort
A ride based on the level from Sonic Colours, you sit in small cars decorated with wisps and fly in the air. You’ve probably seen similar rides like this at various fairs and theme parks.
Sonic Star Race
Sonic star race is a ‘dodgems/Bumper Cars’ ride in which guests drive Sonic themed cars and dodge/bump into other guests.
Sonic Adventure Jump
Sonic Adventure Jump appears to be some kind of movie/cinematic experience, however the rough translation gives a most curious description…
Customers through the eyes of LED large screen showing a 3D image, with the lift operation.So that passengers can enjoy in real life you can not experience the thrill of the Mercedes-Benz.
This to me sounds like you sit in those chairs, wear 3D glasses and go on an adventure as if you are actually Sonic? The chairs move depending on Sonic’s movements? If you’ve been on the Shrek 4D ride or the Terminator 2 3D ride you might have some idea as to what to expect.
So there you go, now you can stop asking for a new Sonic Adventure game, there it is.
All of these attractions are at the moment exclusive to Joypolis China.
