The kids and I had SO much fun here... My eldest son said he would beat me at Pong, but I managed to defeat him then he came up with some excuse haha :) Great display of all the old original consoles.... more »
A must visit for 80s kids. The name says it all - the museum, albeit a small one, has exhibits depicting the history of the gaming industry, from the 1940s to the 2000s and onward. The place also allows you to play classic games on classic consoles and arcade games, such as Super Mario, Mortal Kombat and Sonic the Hedgehog. The founder was there when i visited and was very friendly. Definitely worth the entrance fee.
Wow. I was so impressed on so many levels. The historical display was actually fascinating. There were also some great technical info / explainers like how the console guns know they're on target. Then of course it was really fun playing the games afterwards. Brought back some great memories and plenty of laughs.
Absolutely amazing if you are into your gaming or even if you are not. Entry fee really isn't that much for the amount of gaming history this place holds. You will need at least a few hours if you wish to see everything so I recommend giving yourself plenty of time. First you start with a tour though gaming history and damn people used to love pong. After making your way though all the years of gaming and console history witch takes a few hours you get to play both retro and current console It was amazing to play so many games older than me even if the old Tv's and colours hurt the eyes.
Awesome history of video games, but with the inclusion of being able to play some! Not a big video game enthusiast myself but really enjoyed the history, watching old commercials and then playing some retro games! Won at Pong and Bubble Bubble! Loved being there, awesome place/idea!
It's fun to see all those old version games. More exciting for adults than kids though. (Friendly, helpful lady at the reception)
