Sega Arena Toyohashi (セガアリーナ豊橋), originally Sega World Holiday Square (セガワールド ホリデイスクエア), is a former amusement venue opened by Sega. Originally a smaller Sega World game centre,[2] it was later rebranded and expanded to become a Sega Arena, gaining a Sonic Bowl and a number of Mid-size attractions as a result. The facilities were later sold to Taito in 2009.[3]

History

During the 1990s, Sega opened two separate Sega World locations on the grounds of the same shopping park, Sega World Holiday Square and Sega World Toyohashi inside an Ito Yokado department store.[3] While the latter continued operating as usual until the closure of the Ito Yokado itself in 2017, the former location was closed during 1998 for the construction of a new building on its grounds, in which a larger venue managed by Sega was planned to be opened.[3]

By July 1999, the site housed an IMAX cinema and the reopened Sega Arena Toyohashi.[1] Under the new chain, the venue now made use of a theme, "It's a Dream Town",[4] several mid-size attractions including Murder Lodge,[5] and a Sonic Bowl bowling alley.[6] In the years following its opening, other new facilities were added, including a women's print club corner and a limited time retro gaming area under the name of "Game House", featuring a variety of older cabinets.[7]

The venue was one of a number of former Sega-owned locations sold to Taito in May 2009, with it rebranded to become a Taito Station and X-Bowl by June of that year.[3] Both closed permanently at the end of March 2021.[8]
