Compared to our first visit a couple of years ago it has improved. There seems to be a lot more games for the kids so there was little to no waiting at all. We chose the $85 family pass which consisted of 4 cards and 48 paid red games over a fixed 2 hour period to share between each which... More

For $25 per person you can get unlimited games, 12 ticketed games, one game of laser tag and one dodgem ride (and some others). My four kids (age 6-10) loved it so much we came back a second time and then I brought a ticket for myself as well! They are really patient with the kids when it comes time... More

The kids enjoyed themselves . It was really busy but there was no waiting for games. We bought the family package that guarantees 2 hours of unlimited play for all non ticketing games (the ones that give you tickets to put towards prizes) and 48 tickets for the family towards the ticketed games . The problem I have is that... More

Bought the 2 hour passes and it was perfect for the kids and their activities. Loved that the kids rides like merry go round etc we unlimited. Definitely recommend for young kids for a day activity. Love that every kid can get a prize with tickets, even a little pencil etc if they only have 10 tickets.

A good change of wind in surfers paradise. Nice and clean place although comparatively more expensive than other Timezones

The kids had a ball. 2 hours for $25 each, what a bargain. They can do dodgems, put out gold, laser shooting and bowling. So many games so much things to do. Best place ever.

When you have a broken arm and can't swim, this is the place to go. Huge amount of games, something for everyone and compared to some of the other locations, it's a lot cheaper to be here for 3 hours.

Variety of games for varying ages and interests. Dodgems, putt putt, mini bowling, air hockey tables and lazar tag are also available. Almost full sized cars go down well. Card is gained via machine and quite easy to put money on using cash or card. Monitoring card amount machines easily accessible around the venue.
