New Sonic Attraction in Japan Keeps You Trim

Sonic Athletics is a brand new feature available for visitors at Sega’s Tokyo Joypolis to check out. It’s a game with goals of keeping people fit. Instead of waving around a Wii-mote and watching Sonic stumble against Mario, or even waste time with the Wii balance board, you can actually exercise on a treadmill. Pick from one of eight Sonic characters and start the race. There’s Sonic, Tails, Shadow even Silver. But it doesn’t matter who you pick because the results are up to you. The faster you go, the faster the character goes. It’s a cool concept to attract tourists and fans but honestly, who’s going to want to watch me sweat all over their machines.
