The Starcade originally opened May 27, 1977. The space-themed arcade used to occupy two levels, in the building between Space Mountain and Star Traders. The second floor is currently empty and unoccupied, except of a full size X-Wing replica and an original mural from 1977.
The X-Wing originally hung inside the Star Wars themed Star Traders. It stayed there until Star Traders was refurbished and the fighter moved to its current location.
