Tokyo Joypolis

Not many Japanese arcades really resemble anything we had in the UK, but Tokyo Joypolis is London Sega World’s alternative future.

[A short series of arcade exteriors – 3/3]

Here you can play large-scale attraction cabinets based on major franchises.

You can get whirled about in a Transformers simulator.

You can race Sonic the Hedgehog on a treadmill.

You can herd zombies in 6-player free-roaming VR.

You can ride about 5 pretend rollercoasters.

You can roleplay Ace Attorney.

You can drive a spinning, wheelie-ing tuktuk in “Spicy Taxi”.

What *can’t* you do?
