Disney California Adventure park invites guests to join us for a party like no other – a party with a capital “T” … as in the Mad T Party! And what would a party be without a place for splendiful games and celebratiousness for the whole family? Well, The Mad T Party offers the perfect place … the Mad Arcade!

Mad Arcade Coming to Mad T Party at Disney California Adventure Park

The Mad Hatter has assembled a fantabulous variety of arcade-style games and given them all a very “Mad” twist. There are games to challenge your skills … test your reflexes … expand your mind … all the while helping you discover your inner Hatter.

At the Mad Arcade, you may find yourself launching sugar cubes into wobbling tea cups or knocking down the teeth of the smiling Cheshire Cat. You may even take a journey inside the world of Alice in Wonderland at our video game stations featuring Kinect Disneyland Adventures!

Oh, and little Hatters: beware! It’s feeding time and the Bandersnatch is quite hungry. Hurry and fill his tummy with tasty treats.

So, whether you are shooting hoops at the Queens of Hearts’ Royal Court, frantically trying to Paint the Roses Red or battling against the Jabberwocky and Jub Jub birds, there is so much to do, so many games to play – we think you will go absolutely “Mad” for the Mad Arcade!

You can pass through the Rabbit Hole and into a wondiferous world of muchness, filled with fun and imagination for everyone, beginning June 15, only at Disney California Adventure park.

Sounds pretty cool!

Question: The title says “classic arcade style games”, but the post describes mainly carnival type games. will there be arcade games to? Specifically pinball?!?! (We miss Tron pinball!) & the 25 cent/game cost, but these games don’t sound like quarter games. :)

Kristen – The games in the Mad Arcade will be 25 cents per play.

So can I have the “Tron” arcade game for safe keeping?

I was really hoping that Flynn’s would sneak through somehow.


RUTH on May 1st, 2012 at 5:57 pm

Looking forward to the Mad Arcade, but I will miss playing R-Type and Galaga while listening to 80’s music at Flynn’s. I still have a lot of TRON tokens left! :-)


Catherine from CA on May 1st, 2012 at 7:37 pm

I hope there’s Skeeball; that’s my favorite game.

Question? Will the Mad T Party be open for the passholder preview on June 11?


Darian on May 2nd, 2012 at 1:32 am

I get the feeling guessing from the sound of the games there might be more “ticket” arcade games…like skee ball, or whack a mole


Donna on May 2nd, 2012 at 6:15 pm

I can’t wait! Love Alice in Wonderland. Do you know if they will have a preview event like they did for Tron? I attended the Tron event and really enjoyed it.


Jonathan on May 2nd, 2012 at 8:49 pm

I too was hoping Flynn’s might have still been around. Hopefully you left a retro game or two in there, at least TRON hehe.

I’m so sad to see Flynn’s arcade go right as I was about to have enough to go to California…. My fiancee and I were really wanting to go to DisneyLand for part of our honeymoon but we mainly wanted to go because of the TRON theme there. Will the TRON theme come back at all? Or at least have some of the TRON games in the arcade?

I went to the soft opening last Friday. Had a blast. Can you tell me more of the band that played. The costumes were fantastic and the band was outstanding
