Just back from a 3hr session at Astro City Amusements at the top of Southend High Street. What a little gem of a place, as we were lucky enough to have an extra weeks sch holiday we booked a party £140 for 30 children (5yrs to 14yrs) 3hrs of Free play for the majority of the games. There were some 2p pusher games you had to pay for but everything else was included. Several pool /snooker tables and air hockey. The over 18 games were gated off and there was someone on the door throughout the session to keep our kids in and others out. Not that we needed to worry about ours disappearing anywhere as for the full 3 hrs they were hooked. There is a small snack and drinks bar, the hot drinks were at the mercy of a kettle so that took a little time but no one minded. We were given a space to put any food down and most of us shot out to various outlets and grabbed food. Paul the owner was very helpful and on hand throughout. It was a bit chilly so take a jumper or stay on the dance mat game!!! Really recommend this place for general use but definitely as a party venue in fact my eldest has already requested a party!!! We will no doubt be returning soon!!

My daughter had her tenth birthday party at Astro City it was amazing!!! There was such a variety of games from pac-man to air hockey and shooting to dance machines - something for everyone!! Not only did my ten year old LOVE it, but my 6, 12 and 14 had a fantastic time!! The staff were friendly and helpful making the experience such a positive one. Not only will everyone have the best time, but its such good value for money - I will be booking this venue again for my 7 year olds party; he can't wait. I would like to say a big thank you to Paul for making the day run smoothly!!!

I had my son's 10th birthday party here today, and I have to say it was brilliant. Stress free and great value for money. The games were all on free play for 3 hours, free pool and we could have up to 30 children. We thought 3 hours was a long party, but the time flew and it was difficult to get everyone to leave. The staff were very accommodating and I would definitely recommend.
