Bruno's Galaxian3 former location visit
« on: April 10, 2012, 11:45:45 AM »
This easter weekend I was at Blankenberghe and offcourse I visited the 'ones-biggest-arcade-lunapark' Sportland in Belgium.
I remember this hugh place was filled with 100s arcade cabinets and a lot of pinball machines and offcourse the Galaxian3 theater (the one Bruno's got).

The place is still very big but filled with a lot (and I mean A LOT) of coin dozers and some spares arcade driving machines. Also about 20 bowling lanes and next to it .. ... a bar/drink corner. That corner was the former location of the Galaxian3.

I will post some pics later. Stay tuned.

@Bruno: you will not believe what they did with that place ... a damn shame really.  :roll:

Wow, it's really cool, can't wait for the pictures  :-*
Do you know I always plan to go there, first for a nice moment at the Belgium coast, with my family, but also because I'm curious to see how the place looks like now, without the Theater.
...and each time we really plan go there, there is always something wrong (rain, too tired, my job, someone is sick...). So I never went back since...  :P

So you can understand why I'm asking you ... A full report + pictures please!  :P ;)

 I will post them later today. But some picture are not very sharp (taken with my iPhone4 without a flash).  ::)
But the pictures of the former Galaxian3 place are nice.

Most foto's I took with the iPhone4 didn't have any good quality (didn't used the flash).
But here are the two most important. :-)

Two shots from a different angle of the former place of Bruno's Galaxian3 theater.
If I remember correctly the Galaxian3 was located at the back (a girl is standing in front of it).





And here a Pacman for four players. Didn't know this one existed. Very cool looking.

Great memories  :-* It was exactly five years ago...

That Pac-Man machine looks like the Champion Edition that you can get off XBLA.
