Back when Sega was a world leading name in the video game industry, it was common for entertainment complexes to dedicate space to the blue hedgehog and his sidekicks. In 1996 the newly opened SegaWorld fit this exact description, offering UK gamers a dream-esque adventure to the top of London's Trocadero.
There were very few places you could visit which offered the latest in arcade entertainment, a McDonalds restaurant in the shape of a box of fries and even Dr Robotnik themed dodgems, SegaWorld being one of them. Within this centre was an arcade we could only dream of today, floors dedicated to different gaming genres flooded with the top releases of the 90s.
Sadly this Sega themed centre offering countless arcade machines and amusements only managed to last for around six years. At this point in time, the iconic escalator transporting video gamers to heaven on earth was blocked by a obnoxious vending machine, tragically bringing Sonic's London hideout to a end. That said, in this short time a wealth of fond gaming memories were formed of a time gone by.
A selection of video camera footage from various Segaworld visits have found their way onto YouTube, thankfully immortalising the SegaWorld spirit within legions of gamers who grew up in in the UK during this memorable time. So grab your time travel suit and get ready for a wave of nostalgia, we're going to the top of the Trocadero!
