So we went without kids to an arcade place aimed at kids. There is plenty to do for kids - dodgem cars, bumper boats, water slides, junk food etc. Located on the beach front near Jetty Road. Busy place at any time of the year....More

Our kids paid $30 for the 2 hour pass (plus $5 for wristband with chip) and had little wait for dodgems, bumper boats (with water guns), water slides and arcade games. Excellent value.

Great fun for the Kids, I will admit even fun for adults too. Large variety of video games, arcade games and rides.

This place was so awesomely great, in spite of the biting wind from the waters beyond the beach. The ambiance was pleasant and the people all around so very friendly. Had a great time at both times of the day - Morning and Evening.

Lots of broken machines, machines switched off, the whole upstairs games area was out of action, understaffed, lack of available prizes for the kids.

A bit overpriced and dated, but my 2 year old loved it.Staff were super friendly. My toddler really enjoyed the castle,the carasol and the train ride. A good way to spend a few hours with young children.

What a shame this place is so expensive. $6 for a toddler train is ridiculous. Yes, it's fun for children, but not good on the wallet. Left feeling very ripped off.

For the inside, I believe it was for 2 years to 8 maybe, as there is a height restriction. But for the outside, there is no limit but would say for 2 and up. I even went down the slide. :-) It has something for all kids age... More
