If you are an arcade or Sega fan and you are headed to Dubai for some reason then you have a new attraction to check out while there, Sega’s new indoor theme-park called the Sega Republic. SR has 76,000 sq. ft. of entertainment goodness that is divided amongst five themed zones such as “Speed, Adventure, Sports, Cyberpop and Redemption”. The site features some of Sega’s latest simulator rides such as Storm-G and they even have a Sonic the Hedgehog ride that is based upon Dr. Eggman’s attempts to capture Sonic. They also have a halfpipe simulator that features “a hi-tech snowboarding half-pipe that gives riders the thrill of throttling up and down a 7-metre incline at speeds of up to 40 km/hr.”
Naturally they also have a sizable arcade that features both video and redemption games and I imagine that it will take more than one visit to the Sega Republic to particpate in everything they have to offer.
