Where can this user find a Tron game?

Does anyone know where I can find a Tron arcade game to play in the Chicago area? I know about MAME, but it's not the same without the stick, dial, etc. I watched the movie the other night and I must play the game.

did you call gameworks? The one here in Seattle has a Tron machine in their classics zone. Or at least they did last time I went by, it's worth asking.

I'm most definitely not certain, but you might want to call Dave & Buster's at (312) 943-5151 — it's got a lot of games.

Arcadelocations.com doesn't list anything in Illinois. How about a trip to Lake Geneva?

Dennis Place for Games may have it, it is right next to the Belmont stop. Or at least, someone there may have an idea.

My girlfriend would like to go to Lake Geneva. Thanks
I have been to Dave and Busters and I don't remember them having it, I'll call. I am sure it will be an interesting phone call. Tron, HUH, TRon, HUH

Dennis' doesn't have it, they do have an awesome Frankenstein pinball machine though.

(Tangential, sorry, but if you have a PC and haven't played the sadly-overlooked Tron2.0 FPS, you should. It's really good, and great-looking considering it's age.)

Seconding STWC's recommendation.

Tron 2.0 was excellent, and the treatment of the light cycles was very well done as well.

Armagetron might be a good fix until you find the original.

Thirding Tron 2.0. What a great game.

I'm pretty sure the dave and buster's downtown doesnt have it. I wouldnt be surprised if it only exists in some old Chucky Cheese or in someone's basement. There's a company called Western Automatic Music on the north side that may rent it or know who has it.

Western Automatic Music is dead, I live right near there.
