Click here for a video on how good Sega world London use to be.
Back in 1996 the wrolds largest indoor theme park and arcade 'SegaWorld' opened in the London Trocadero.
Four years later it was closed down.
What remains is Funland and a fine selection of random crap. Today Trocadero is the Coney Island of London; a semi deserted, uncared for piece of entertainment history. It was the place I had taken my first date, it was the place I use to go to for EVERY birthday growing up.
Realisitically, I dont see Segaworld coming back. It was the death of the arcades during the late 90's that brought it to its knees. That and the reductions of Sega as a company.
But hey, who knows maybe someday. Something as cool as Segaworld, or at least something thats looked after and with pretty lights can be back in the Troc.
From a Londoner born and raised on the streets of Sonic, I miss you.
