We hold fabulous children's birthday parties in our arcade, where the kid's can play over 50 machines and games that we've set to free play. Our parties are packed with fun and excitement and will surely be the best party ever, not only for kids, but for parents as well! You can also privately hire Astro City for adult parties, Christmas parties, hen parties, or private functions. And don't forget our public events every Friday evening, weekends and selected school holiday weekdays. There's no need to book these events - just turn up!

A hammer machine - great for the sporting kids that like to test their strength. There's several ball throwing games including a Basketball machine. And not forgetting the bear on a boat ride, Taz ride and Whack a Crock - all guaranteed to be a hit with the younger children - and all set to free play!
