Tetris Arcade Machine is World's Largest Standing at 16 Feet Tall!
MadLab (Spain) has made every gamer's dream come true after unveiling the largest arcade machine featuring the world-famous Tetris game.
The mammoth arcade machine measures 4.90 m (16 ft 1.15 in) tall and 1.98 m (6 ft 5.99 in) wide, with a depth of 1.11 m (3 ft 7.82 in).
"It has been a pleasure for us and we are delighted to have had the opportunity to create the world's largest arcade machine, working with the WildBrain CPLG and Tetris teams to achieve this great title by Guinness World Records." - Raluca Gavrilovici, Global Business Manager at MadLab/Madhouse
The bulk of the assembly for the arcade machine was done on location, with the main challenges being the two upper parts due to its height and scale.
The arcade machine features a working version of Tetris. Creating the machine was made possible by joining forces with The Tetris Company to develop a version of the classic game specifically for the machine.
MadLab created a version of the game with a much larger than usual screen, and a super-sized command system to ensure an authentic arcade machine experience!
