Sonic Hopper was a free-fall ride with a nine-meter (thirty-foot) drop. Unlike most free-fall rides, the track is cork-screwed so that riders spin as they move up and down. It was located at the now-defunct SEGA Republic at the Dubai Mall.
Take a ride with one of the world's best-known video game characters, Sonic the Hedgehog , and feel the jaw-dropping sensation of a nine-meter (thirty-foot) drop—with a twist!
The ride is a ten-person ride, and shoots up only to free-fall back down. However, the ride spins as it moves, unlike other free-fall rides. At the top of the attraction is Sonic, standing proudly while holding up a SEGA Republic flag.
