According to various sources, the Midway Games over at Paradise Pier will in fact close down on October 27th, 2008 for their conversion over to the new Disney character themed games. The buildings housing the games will be re-themed into a similar Victorian style as that seen with Toy Story Midway Mania. The 4 games are going to be Casey at the Bat (based on a 1950’s Disney cartoon), Bullseye’s Stalion Stampede (from Toy Story 2), Dumbo’s Bucket Brigade, & Goofy About Fishin’.
Here’s some concept of the games from inside the Blue Sky Cellar, courtesy of our very own Myrna Litt:
There’s no word yet on how long this refurbishment will last, or if it will even start on October 27th, so stay tuned to Disneyland News Today for the latest.
