Shack Reels: Shack's Arcade Corner: Jurassic Park Arcade 1994

Welcome to Jurassic Park.


Greg looks back at the classic Jurassic Park arcade cabinet from 1994 on this week's Arcade Corner. The cabinet had force feedback built into the seats and supported 2 player action. Players had to use a joystick to aim in this on rails shooter that recreated some of the most memorable scenes from the original Jurassic Park film. Take a look!

      Cool Greg, nice vid. I rather play Area 51 or The House of the Dead 2 over JP any day.

      Personally I really liked Lost World Jurassic Park game way better, it was cool. Your totally right this JP game was not that great it was meh, but the cabinet was cool.

        TLW with the sit down cabinet is one of the best. So much time spent at Playdium.

      Great video. I didn't have a chance to see this cabinet when I went to arcades. I'm more familiar with the Lost World iteration. Can you do features showcasing the other three iterations? That would be awesome.
      While I enjoy the length of each feature, I think I'd prefer them to be longer. I know this doesn't fit the format of the content you guys are trying to put out, but I'd enjoy watching a retrospective of some of these arcade reviews.

      For example, Arcade Corner does a retrospective of the Mortal Kombat cabinets spanning all versions of the game in arcade form. Just a thought. By doing each cabinet individually it gives you more opportunity to spread content out over time. These videos just leave me wanting more!
