It’s the end of an era. It’s been there for 6 years but it seems that the Sonic Spinball ride at Alton Towers has had it’s last ride.
According to information posted Alton Towers’ ride times website, Sonic Spinball isn’t there, but Spinball Whizzer is. If you don’t know, Spinball Whizzer was the original name of the ride before it was re-themed to Sonic Spinball.
It would appear as if Alton Towers have turned the ride back to Spinball Whizzer based on this information. This would likely mean that the Sonic Hotel room will also be removed or will likely be removed in the very near future.
The official website however does still show that both the ride and the hotel are there, but this hasn’t been updated for some time so we’ll update the story as and when we get absolute confirmation.

UPDATE: Now confirmed, both the official site show it’s been themed back to Spinball Whizzer & the 2016 Park Map also shows the ride is no more. The hotel room, however, is still showing as being available to book.
