Tricia and I bought our Disneyland year passes tonight and we had to hit California Adventures ElecTRONica area which was on the Hollywood Backlot. The best thing was the recreation of Flynn's arcade. I was surprised at the games in there - played Solar Fox for the first time (awesome!) as well as Sub Roc and TARG (been a hellofa long time since I've played Targ) and some others. Here are the cool photos:

Damn!! Awesome arcade.

Now, who's going to duplicate that effort in the lower northeast, say, in south central PA?

Looks fantastic! Wish there were more like that around, so I hope it does well.

It was busy last night. It was cool being in a "real" 80's arcade again. No new games whatsoever and all the games were in very nice condition. They had 80's music blasting loud and it all came together and took me back in time.

Ya, you def have to come down and see this TRON set up they have. The whole Hollywood back lot at night becomes elecTRONica and they have booming techno music (Daft Punk soundtrack I think) and an incredible TRON light show through out the whole street. It only runs at night and is impressive as Hell. Come on down!

Ok I am going to ask a silly question, kind of surprised no one else noticed? Space Paranoids was the game Kevin Flynn designed in Tron. Is the cab in the pics the game some folks made for comic con last year? Or a dressed up Tron cab?

Oh one more thing Mike, do you know how long Flynn's arcade will be there? I am assuming till the movie comes out maybe, till it is released on DVD?

I was wondering the exact same thing... I hope its there for a long time but i suspect it won't be. Too much maintenance!

Yeah I need to find the time, I'm really snowed under right now otherwise I'd be down in a heartbeat. Its a cheap flight!

The Space Paranoids was a new game, and yes I believe it's the same game used at Comic-Con - developed by 42 Entertainment and published by Disney. They had two of these Paranoids cabs here. I am not sure how long the Tron exhibits will be running, but I would guess through the launch of the movie and probably quite a few months after that. I will see if I can find out more next time I am there.

Hey Mike, was this the game? I found this looking for info--http://www.spaceparanoidsonline.com/

I played this web version, I haven't watched the film in a while but it seems like this was pretty accurate to the film. Was this web game the same as the cab?
