    They are alright.. I've never really played.. so I guess I don't really have a say..

    I did see some some cra--zay folk kicking bootay on that Dance Dance Revolution.. it was like their legs were independent from their body..

    And.. my year old godson sure did like sitting in those race car games.. granted.. he could really careless if he were actually playing or not...

    The place is trashy and doesn't belong in Disneyland.

    I'm just one of those Asian DDR-ers out there. Haha, but I'm not overly obsessive that I "freestyle." But yeah... I haven't actually looked around in there.

    If Galaga in there? Galaga's never out of date. (=

    Put a ride there instead or use HISTA and the arcade to make a ride. Im not at DL to play Video Games Im there to ride rides and do stuff I cant do at home.
    Plus the arcade is NOTHING Special the theme sucks for a Disney theme park. They could have made it much cooler but I would rather have a ride there, Flying Saucers? Maybe?

    When I was a kid, I found myself spending at least an hour everytime at Starcade with my friends playing airhockey. But that was when the Starcade was this spacious play area with an X-Wing hanging overhead. Now it's just a tiny nothing-special arcade without any violent games.

    I hate to say shut it down, because I have some fond memories, but honestly shut it down and move it to DTD.

    Air Hockey is a violent game?

    Re: Starcade

    I can't really remember what games are in there at the moment, but I've never played them. I don't really see Starcade as being necessary and wish they'd give it a little Disney touch, like they used to in the old pirate arcade. A good start would be putting Disney plush in the claw machines instead of the random ones in there now.

    Re: Starcade

    There are many interactive type of games Ala DDR (dance dance revolution for the uninitiated which utilizes body movements to play) these games are fun to play and to watch people play. These games are also a great revenue generator which is a win win situation, fun for the guests and great for the bottom line. I have heard that the Starcade is now run through a private 3rd party company which handles maintenance etc. I would like to see DL make sure that the Starcade is kept updated and make sure the newer type of games are brought in to keep it fun and fresh.

    We don't need a DisneyQuest. We just need to move it to DTD and make it somewhat interesting. I don't know what the current selection of games looks like but I'd like a section with nice restored retro machines.

    One my fondest memories at the Starcade was on the upper level, playing Ms Pac-Man on the full-sized machine, while my son played it on the midget childrens-sized machine (seriously, it was like the same machine but shrunk in the wash,) and we raced to see who could complete the level the fastest. Guess who won? Darn ghosts...

    Re: Starcade

    I think it would be a good idea to have retro type games. Last time I went in there and actually played a game, I played Pac Man and Bust-A-Move. A good idea would be to remove it and put a Gameworks in DTD or if we'd keep it, open up the second story again.

    I miss all of the old pinball games that used to be upstairs. Back when games used to cost a quarter, and not a dollar like some do today.
