Anybody know if there is still a killer instinct 1 or 2 arcade cabinet at all left in any of the seasides around uk .  Used to go to southend on sea , blackpool , portsmouth back in the 90's during school holidays as a kid and would spend most of the day playing KI 1- 2  . Got some spare time in the next month and wouldnt mind going again

Them were the days arcades dont have it now, mostly grabbing machines and slot machines, we had it good back in the 80s and 90s.

The arcades in Cleethorpes are around 90% coin pushers and grabber machines. There are some driving games, and one arcade has the starwars battle pod which the novelty wears off after the first go :-/

There are no KI cabs in seaside towns that I know of, but Arcade Club has a nice original KI machine. :)

I played KI in Blackpool arcades 10 years or so ago. It's bound to be gone by now. I remember marvelling even then how games had surpassed that pre-rendered look in realtime.

100% agree about battle pod. Looks like great fun but you don't really have that much control over your ship. I played it in Bournemouth along with Mario Kart GP Delux
