Vintage TRON photo from Disneyland's Starcade
Do you remember the 1982 Disney fantastic feature film TRON? Many do…I never saw it in the theater, but I do remember the video arcade game. It was one of the first games to feature four separate games in one. It had beautiful cabinet art and even a clear blue joystick that illuminated with a black light located just underneath the monitor, which illuminated all the florescent line details as well as the joystick. A Disney experience even in you home town’s video arcade.
Disneyland’s Tomorrowland had at least ten of these games in the Starcade, complete with overhead video monitors so everyone near and far in the Starcade could view the game in play. Here is a rarely seen image of the TRON set up in Disneyland’s Starcade.
