Sonic Jumping Tour & Sonic Star Race Images Surface

Just over two years ago we brought you news that Sega was opening a new Joypolis theme park in China, along with it were several new Sonic Rides and attractions, whilst a few images were released, some key details were missing, such as what you actually did on the ride and in the case of Sonic Jump Adventure, what you actually watched on the screen.

Since that time; virtually no information about the attractions has surfaced, no video, photos, visitor descriptions of any kind.

Well we can now share with you a few details, Joypolis China has redesigned their website and along with it comes several new photos and descriptions of some of the rides.

Sonic Star Race looks like a bonkers cross between the dodgems section in Twinkle Park and All Stars Racing, but there’s actually a few details here you might miss.

See that screen on the left side? That’s a scoreboard! As you drive around the arena, you get points by driving over the different coloured lights on the floor. Not sure if you get points for using a super horn at other drivers though.

Next up is the most interesting one.The literal translation of this ride was ‘Sonic Jumping Adventure’ but now we finally know it’s actual title ‘Sonic Jumping Tour’. No additional details were given as to what you actually do on this ride, but we do finally get to see part of it and… boy it looks odd. There is a slightly different image available in the gallery, but if you can figure out what’s going on, be sure to let me know in the comments.

  1. Not sure on the subject on the ride/event. But It would almost appear to be one screen showing multiple screens and being separated by wearing what looks like a team of a Sonic character. So you wear the glasses and only see what your team is doing. I’ve had a tv that could do this for split screen games (done it for Sonic 2 actually haha) the screen you view looks confusing but when you put the glasses on you will get to see your own part of the screen. I’ve just never seen it with 4 before (The tech must of improved since then?)

    Thats my take anyways and hope it made some sense :p
