Camelot!

Today I went to Camelot with my friends Landon and Brock.  Camelot is a big Medieval-themed arcade/mini golf/lazer tag/pizza parlor/waterslide fun center in Anaheim.  It's probably been a good 15 years since I've been to Camelot.  It was a blast!



We started off with some pizza that was not particularly flavorful but was LOADED with cheese.  I asked the girl at the counter if she would announce "Sir Landon, your pizza's ready" when our pizza was ready, and she did!



Next we hit the lynx and played some mini golf.  At Camelot, you can choose between four different courses.  We chose the "Golden Orient" course, which was classified as "hard".





Landon's ball got stuck inside Fort Courage.


Brock makes a difficult shot up the dreaded "anthill".  I won the mini golf round, probably because I am a recreational golfer, and am more experienced with putting.


After golf, we played a round of Lazer Joust.  Landon won that game, and I got last.  Instead of hiding, my strategy was just to wander aimlessly around, a strategy which proved unsuccessful.


Next we hit the arcade.  I must admit, I was a little sad that many of the original/old school arcade games that I remember from my childhood had been replaced with more modern "drivin" and "shootin" games.  I was really looking forward to playing "Altered Beast" and "Rampage" but neither of these games are there anymore.  C'est la vie.



However, tucked away upstairs was the original Pac Man game.




All in all, it was a fun afternoon.  I'm looking forward to going again soon with my friend Kevin Malone.

  1. Hi there!

    My name is Dominique Zamora, I'm a journalism student at UCI and I'm trying to write a piece this quarter on Camelot. Please lmk if you'd be down for any kind of interview sometime, whether by phone or facebook or in person, etc. It'd be such a great help to me to get to talk to someone who doesn't work there but who actually has been a guest and knows what's it's like to go there for fun.

    Soo yeah, thanks for any help you can give me. Feel free to email me at satoriie@gmail.com if you're down for an interview!
