The DDR Euromix is being upgraded to Extreme soon too!

I likely won't be going back to England, but isn't it unfortunate to convert a rare mix to a common mix? But congratulations on the EZ 2 Dancer.

UK Move is terrible. Awful. Diabolical.
UK Move Special Edition is great (but I would say that, as I was part responsible for the tracklist lol).
It originally had UK Move so 2nd is a definite improvement.
For us Brits, both versions of UK were common as water and Korean was rare... When we actually had cabs =]

Oh crap. You were talking about Euromix. That is super common. It's everywhere in England.
Extreme is fairly rare for the UK. You can go to any bowling alley in England and find a Euromix for sure.

I guess if I saw one in England it must have been close to the only one.

To be fair the only time I ever saw a DDR USA was on Santa Monica Pier.
We were all... "WTF is this". I guess it's your version of our Euromix.

You should come back and play. A lot of arcades here (even if most of them are 90% gambling machines).
It's still possible to find some classics. I love going to the States as you have so many arcades too.

Rarest UK DDR would be Dancing Stage 1.5 with Steps, Run DMC and that Alexia song with the triple step lol

Re: Lucky 777's, Adam said he will be doing the Extreme upgrade in the next month.

DDR USA was an early attempt to officially bring DDR to the US after many American arcades imported DDR 3rd Mix Korean machines. DDR USA was a failure despite some good song choices. We preferred the less limited quantity and quality of songs of the Japanese and Korean mixes.

This cab IIRC is literally 2 miles from my house.

You don't wanna play it. Not in the state it's in.

Nice info, haven't seen that cab since 2000! Which arcade is it?

Tenpin Derby.

It's not a good arcade and I last popped up there a year ago so no idea if it's still there. Although it's been there for a while and the arcade staff are lazy bastards so I would stake on it still being there.

Great, thank you. I'll check it out when I move back to the UK.

You should contact me, we can go down together and flick peanuts at the arcade staff's heads until they cave in and give us something nicer than Fusion.

It's just the flash from the phone, they are just normal DDR bass speakers.
