There's also a great selection of old school retro games such as Donkey Kong, Space Invaders, Pac-man, Hyper Sports, Galaga, Defender and Super Mario Brothers plus many, many more! So come along now for that real arcade experience!
Below is a list of our next free play sessions. All these sessions are open to the public, so there's no need to book - you just turn up!
THE HOME OF FREE PLAY
UPCOMING FREE PLAY SESSIONS
All the games in Astro City are family friendly and suitable for all ages.
If you're undecided about booking a children's party because you're not sure what to expect, why not bring the kids to a free play session first, see if they like it, then decide!
To help us keep our prices as low as possible, entry to these events is done on an admission basis where everyone pays £5, regardless of whether they play the games or not. We also charge everyone because arcade machines appeal to all ages, and many of our customers are adults.
The only exception are children 3 and under, who are free.
