Sad news guys. Another UK’s arcade scene landmark is going close, and this time for good! In fact London Trocadero (formerly Funland and SegaWorld) is set to permanently close on February 25. It’ll become a hotel (probably a Tokyo-like pods one), landlord announced recently.
As you may know, the true soul of Trocadero, the Funland arcade, died many years ago, but the building was still hosting a couple arcades at underground floor and plenty of loose cabinets scattered throughout all the other venue’s floors, including several racing games.
All the arcade owners have been given a 2-weeks notice for the final shutdown and currently most of the cabinets are for sale (but most of them are in a really bad shape, and the good ones are probably already gone).
If you have a spare afternoon, just go there to play one last game before all is gone, forever, on February 25.
