Space Harrier Deluxe cabinet in UK?

Post by pubjoe » March 11th, 2016, 8:10 am

Just out of curiosity, is it still possible to experience a big hydraulic Space Harrier cab anywhere in the UK?

Where do I gotta go, who do I gotta blow?

I was fortunate enough to have one in a local arcade, where it stayed for years. I'd sometimes walk there with only 50p so I could play it. Managed to 1cc it with 30p eventually.

I was obsessed by it when I was 9-10. I used to keep a moth eaten spectrum cassette inlay card in my pocket and hum the theme music when I did my paper round. :awe:

I'm sure I've talked about this before. Every year.

I think there will be one at Arcade Club soon if there isn't one already.

I'd be surprised if Alpha1 doesn't have one lurking somewhere...

I think the last couple sited were in Hantstanton and Ryde, IoW but they went a good few years back now.

There are maybe three out there with collectors that I know of.

Even rarer than OutRun deluxe.
Found:
Sega Model 3 Dirt Devils ROM board or complete boardset ;)

There is at least two in various stages with UK collectors, there was a raid on some place that had a bunch of these stored. Apparently, they also found a cocktail cab with a large dildo inside, and the place was used for 'watersports' parties. But none of the cabs were involved in those shenanigans it seems :roll:

And this was genuinely what fell out when we prised the lid off this cocktail cabinet :awe: :sick: :shock:

More pics and whatnot on ukvac if anyone wants to read more about that particular day.

Been a long time since I've fapped to a copy of Escort magazine.
To my surprise, apparently still being published.

There were 'other' items in there too. Nobody fancied taking that cocktail funnily enough!
