Sega Tokyo Dome City (セガ 東京ドームシティ), previously Carnival (カーニバル), is a Japanese Sega game center located in the Tokyo Dome City entertainment complex. Twenty years before Sega purchased the location, it was notably used as a test site for the company's early large and mid-size attractions, including CCD Cart, Cyber Dome, and the prototype version of the AS-1.[2][3]

History

Carnival

The venue originally opened as a game center in December 1990 under the name of Carnival.[4] It is thought to have been a location test site for early simulators developed by Sega AM5.[5] Alongside the first pair of R360 units sold to a non-Sega venue, the rarer CCD Cart and Cyber Dome installations could be found running following their debuts at Amusement Machine Show 1990.[2]

To celebrate Carnival's first full year of operations and mark its first appearance after a prototype version was shown at AOU Show 1991, Sega conducted the first playtest of the AS-1 at the location for a one-month limited period.[3] It is not clear when these attractions were removed, and the location continued to use its original Carnival name into the 2000s.

Sega Tokyo Dome City

In 2011, Sega purchased operating rights for the former Carnival game centre.[1] It continues to operate to this day.
