Following the latest easing of restrictions on bowling alleys, theatres and casinos, Superbowl UK is finally able to operate again – and has a special guest to help with the celebrations.

The venue, along with all other bowling alleys in the country, was due to be back in business on August 1, but the reopening had to be postponed following a spike in coronavirus cases across the UK.

However, it is all systems go for Superbowl UK to reopen today, and on Thursday, August 27 the venue will be welcoming Sonic the Hedgehog for a series of meet-and-greets every hour on the hour, from midday until 4pm.
