It was called Time Traveler. My local arcade had it for a time but I never tried it, probably because the arcade charged $2 just to play it once. I could play through both Golden Axe and Final Fight for $2, not wasting it on a game I would most likely suck at.

Did any of you play it?

Yep....it sucked. You can find the DVD release online. That sucks too.

The following year they released Holosseum.

I remember seeing it being demoed on the old Gamepro TV show back in the day. Never saw an actual machine of it in the wild.

I played it. Worse than Dragon's Lair/Space Ace in every way.

I found it neat, but yes, it was pretty much an annoying Quick-time Event game.

Just went to an arcade and more of these mirrored amusement games are now available. There are companies developing a similar device for hospitals.

I played both of those hologram arcade games. Time Traveler, believe it or not, was the much better of the two.

Yes! My local roller skating rink had it when I was a kid.

I remember it looked pretty cool but was nearly impossible to play. Basically a holographic version of Dragon's Lair.
