Vandals/Accident?

Thu Apr 25, 2013 9:46 am

Whilst on park on tuesday, I had my picture taken with Sonic, as you do lol outside Sonic spinball. To my disappointment, somehow his nose has been broken off  :shock:

Could this be due to some vandals on the park or just a general accident. I hope AT fix it soon though as it does him no justice lol.
:D

Probably just general wear-and-tear, maybe too many kids and adults alike have grabbed it :)

I wouldn't have thought Sonic would have anyone who wants to knock his nose off... :lol:

Alton Towers Sonic isn't the only Sonic who has nose troubles =P A bunch of his merchandise (not just the stuff at Alton Towers but Sonic toys in general) all have nose problems  :lol:

It's a general thing with Sonic's design really. If anything, I'm surprised it's lasted this long.

Sonic is always getting patched up because people who want their photo taken with him end up climbing all over him.

I was always a fan of the graffiti on the bins in Oblivion's que line...

They used to change the G into a C

Oh no, that's bad news. Sonic is my favourite character there.

Last time I went to AT was the first time I'd been with the sonic theme. Me and my girlfriend were waiting in the area next to Squirrel Nutty for the park to fully open. When I saw sonic come over I gasped like a 5 year old child and I got all embarrased when my girlfriend told me to get a photo with him. She had to call him over like she was my mum or something. I was almost in awe lmao.

I'm a 25 year old man. This (most likely freaked out teenager) in a giant blue hedgehog outfit represents a big part of my childhood. Fix his nose!  :lol:
