Split over two floors, our awesome Arcade is filled with games spanning 5 decades, covering classics such as the Atari VCS/2600 and modern wonders such as the PSVR and a the latest in PC gaming.

Level 1 (aka the Lower Arcade) also has a bar that's open on some evenings that gives the grown-ups a bit of extra fun with the games! Level 2 (you guessed it - the Upper Arcade) has some of the big hitters and multiplayer games that everyone loves as well as our "Shooting Gallery"! We even have a high score board where you can try and get your initials up for any one of our amazing challenges.
