No more empty 'slot' in the first page of this topic... so I continue here  Wink

Still Day 11 : The evening...

Go back to our hotel : Walt Disney World Swan Resort  arrow



...but before going to bed, let's enjoy the Disney's BoardWalk, in front of the hotel and enjoy the daily fireworks at Epcot... very nice spot for watching it  Wink  arrow



Disney's BoardWalk means also shops...



...and Arcade?  Roll Eyes Tongue  arrow



Well, not really... I presume It should be a big Arcade long time ago, now, this place is a mix between a sport t-shirts shop...and an Arcade... with no 'classic'  Undecided

 

This is my favorite one here... easy to guess  Grin  arrow



I think it's the first time I see a Star Wars Starfighter cabinet :









This is the only 'Star Wars' game not made by Sega. This one is made by Tsunami Visual Technologies, Inc... and I can tell you it's a really bad game.
By the way, do you remember Tsunami Visual Technologies ? Yes they did the AIR RAID game to convert a Galaxian Theater  Lips Sealed...

Before going to sleep, Darth Nunette insists to visit the hotel... and guess what? ... yes ... a small game room here  Cheesy  arrow



Nothing special here... but a least people here can read : Galaga or Ms PacMan... it's better than nothing don't you think?  Roll Eyes Tongue  arrow



Who's Dale Jr? ...



...he must be very famous in US... but not in Europe  roll eyes

Now, I'm very tired, but my wife still want to visit the hotel 'in deep'  confused ... let's continue to walk in the maze...

Wow... what's this? ... a generic cocktail? ...



...inside a laundry?  Shocked AWESOME  Grin  Kiss Kiss Kiss  arrow



When washing machine (who says 'Japanese white cabinet) & Arcade unites  Grin Tongue  arrow



This is the best thing to do while you're waiting somewhere... playing a classic game ... good point for this hotel  Grin  lol

Great pictures.

I wish I could share pictures of my trip to Hawaii, but there's NO video games on the island! I've got a house out there (well technically my Mom has a house until she, god rest her soul, passes away one day), so I've been out there twice.

I only found two places.. one was in the mall and one said "arcade", but it turned out to be a bunch of slot machines you win tokens on. I guess because there's a lot of Japanese people there.

I see you went to Fun Spot in Florida. Did you ride the go-karts? They're awesome there. I went with a friend a few years back while we went down to tour a college. On the big track there's a hill you can't see over the other side as you ride up it. You think you're going to fly over it into the sun.

I love Zoo Keeper!

Imagine not knowing who Dale JR is...For shame dude

Dale Earnhardt Jr is the son of the late great nascar driver Dale Earnhardt, and is an amazing Driver in his own right.

Those pinball tables can be custom ordered with the purchasers favourite driver on them, I'd go for Jeff Gordon if i was buying one.

Can't remember exactly  oppps I would say something like potatoes inside... I just remember 'something' good  Tongue Grin

Yes, Beach Head 2000 and this Star Wars Starfighter games are similar yes... same crap done by  Tsunami Visual Technologies, Inc  confused
Cabinets (cockpit?) are very similar but there are few differences.
