Wicker Man at Alton Towers to receive British Gas sponsorship
Sunday 1st April 2018
Wicker Man at Alton Towers is set to receive sponsorship from today. The sponsor of the ride will be British Gas, a major gas, and electric company.
The ride has stayed mainly unchanged apart from a change to the Wicker Man structure where the British Gas logo has been fixed to the arm of the Wicker Man.
The propane for the fire effects will now be supplied by British Gas and Gaz, one half of British Gas’ current mascots, Gaz and Leccy, will be roaming the plaza for the foreseeable future.
It is also understood that the sponsorship deal might not be Wicker Man specific with other rides receiving the sponsorship too, however, none of this is confirmed yet.
We have heard rumors that the first ride to also receive the sponsorship will be The Smiler and receive some theming changes, one of which being the marmaliser being changed to a giant light bulb.
