They temporary closed that part because of construction/renovation of the building.  
I heard they plan to reopen again when that is finished and in the meantime they stored most of the games.

Combining the construction work and still open the arcade would have to been to hard.

SEASON 08 - IS IT THE LAST (GALACTIC) DANCE?

EPISODE 01: A DREAM?

December 2018...an other gaming session inside the Galaxian Theater...



...what happens???  ???...something goes wrong.... I'm feeling bad  ??? ??? ...



... I'm feeling bad  ??? ??? ...



...ah ...ok ....just a dream...I'm still here, inside my game room... I was about to play Galaxian3... on my playstation, and of course on a video projector, in order to have a big picture, like the arcade full size theater version!



Oh cool is that, huh? Like the arcade!  :-*





But wait! what about that dream? To own a full size Galaxian Theater at home?



Wow, that would be great  :-* ...but come on! Why owning a such beast for myself only? That unique game deserve to be played by many! It is a SIX players game. That monster must be located in a public location, and not hidden in a private game room barely visited by arcade fans, and lost in a small village hidden in south Belgium...You are a little dreamer, Darth Nuno!

to be continued...

On the other side, a public location for this gem is not a bad idea :-*

Given the history of the remaining Galaxian 3-Cabs out in the wild i would consider it a VERY BAD idea.

Well guys, after almost 12 years of ownership, it's time for me to share that beast... and what a better location than a Coinop Museum.
So yeah, my precious, my beloved Galaxian Theater is now the ownership of AgraGames CoinopMuseum. A place located in NL to be open for public in year 2019. That place sounds very promising. They also own couple of SEGA R360s and ton of games from all eras.They are located in less than 3 hours from my place, so I could jump to there quite easily if a need a Galaxian3 fix  ;D. Anyway, I'm really happy to know that Galaxian Theater will be played soon by a ton of people, and no more 'hidden' in my private lair.
But for now, it's time to disassemble the beast...

I’m happy for you you found a buyer. But to be honest I don’t think there will be a ton of people playing it over there. They have great stuff but they don’t seem to be doing a lot with it

I'm really happy to see, that these beast will be in a public place, I guess it would have been hard to release it, but it won't be too far from you. ;)
Now, you have plenty of space for some more cabs ;D

Honestly.. this makes me more sad than it makes me happy. :(
This beast belonged to you. Please fill up the space with 20 new cabs as soon as possible.

Well... I can understand the point where you have this machine sitting and not enough players to enjoy it. It's the same with all my games sitting in storage and no opportunity yet to settle everything up and running in a nice gameroom. This is frustrating. I guess also Agra has been very generous on this one, they have purchasing means that only a few in Europe have....

But still that sucks ! We must resist temptation :spaceace:
I hope nice replacement arcade games will show up quickly ! And that one day Agra will finally opens....
