    Some may cry some may care others will see it opportunity for new, it seems that Trocadero will be closing its doors for last time 25 Feburay 2014.

    I always said that I will come and play on the arcade some day LOL now it seem it won't happen. This was going to happen ever since Command & Conquer came out and introduce network gameplay(eventually internet gameplay) , it was the start of the end of arcade arenas, the Xbox, Dreamcast , Sony Playstaion and the end of Sega World London in 2000 were the last nail to the coffin and gave it a slow death till now. However I had some fun memories. I'm sure people with the meet-up in London have some photos going there. Who remember the Pepsi drop and the Aliens shooting round ? Trocadero its been a pleasure. , We salute to your fun and your departure. An end to an era of pure fun. I hope someday will get that back with arcades and better.

    Here are some of things Trocadero that will be missed:

    At first it was a great place to be with rides, attractions, 4D simulators etc. But the last few times, it's been full of arcade games, grabber machines, and rude gobby kids skiving off school. I'll remember it for what it could have been.
