I hope this is the right section for this! I couldn't find one that seemed to fit more...

I was just wondering if anyone has been to Alton Towers lately? I've never been there before, and I know from the Character Central website that they only have a handful of mascots who go out and about.

I was just hoping to find out whether they're all out on any given day, given their small number? I'd like to know, in particular, if Alton Bear and Sonic The Hedgehog are easy to find! Does anyone know, please?

Also, do they have any merchandise or attractions related to the mascots they have? (I've seen a keyring from a Sonic-related ride there being sold on eBay. I was just wondering if there was anything else.)

Hi,

I live near Alton Towers & have been many times and I didn't even know there was such thing as the Alton Bear!! I don't think I've ever seen Sonic either & I've heard rumours that the Sonic Spinball ride may be rebranded to a general pinball theme.

The only characters I have seen are Sid from Ice Age who is usually out for photos by the Ice Age 4D cinema & the little Halloween mascots do Trick or Treat shows in October.

When I was little they used to do a lovely little Peter Rabbit on Ice show with all the Beatrix Potter characters but that hasn't been there for many years now.

With the new CeeBeebies Land opening this year I imagine they could have some characters out, Postman Pat, Iggle Piggle etc.

Sorry I went on a bit there ha xx
