SEGA wants to open up a Sonic theme park

Today is the 30th anniversary of the very first Sonic the Hedgehog game. Sonic 1 released on the SEGA Mega Drive/Genesis in 1991, and even though SEGA and Nintendo have since become good friends in the decades that followed that intense 90s rivalry, the blue blur’s legacy hasn’t been forgotten.

In fact, Famitsu has an upcoming Sonic 30th Anniversary column on the way. Multiple people in Sonic Team are interviewed, including SEGA art director Kazuyuki Hoshino. Hoshino revealed that they are wanting to open up a Sonic theme park, due to the success of the Sonic movie that released last year.

      1. A video game is one thing, but half-assing a theme park can cause serious safety hazards, something they could never get away with.

        SEGA isn’t quite ready for a theme park, not after so many neglected IPs and the terrible direction of any Sonic game after SA2 (apart from the handhelds) that isn’t Mania.

  1. While Sega has a lot of obscure IPs I do think a “Sega Land” instead of a Sonic Theme Park would be better.

    Super Monkey Ball would be a great Bumper Cars add on,
    House of The Dead would be a great Shooter Arcade (Think the Toy Story Buzz Shooter at Disney where it’s on rails and you shoot enemies for points)
    Chu Chu Rocket would make a great Mad Mouse Skin
    Jet Set Radio would make a cool Pirate Ship Ride where they go left and right but just make it a skate board or something.
    Crazy Taxi would make a cool Rollercoaster.

    Idk the ideas could be all over. They have so many IPs, NiGHTS, Sonic, Altered Beast, After Burner etc etc

  2. SEGA used to have its own theme park in London featuring Sonic until it was close down and demolish in the late 2000s. So, I’m guessing they will give themselves another shot for a new theme park featuring Sonic again.
