    This is possibly the noisiest place ever but the kids loved it. We don't have one at home so it was quite exciting.  more »

    My wife and I are in our 30's, yet we went here and played a few games and had some fun. It was a beautiful day outside so we decided we could spend our time better elsewhere— which we did. If however...  more »

    As parents we tend to find enjoyment in what our kids enjoy. They did. Bought an ultra combo Dad & 2 tween boys then was active for the 3 hours. Did all the main activities but some of the shooter gam...  more »

  • We visited timezone and we got the family pack for $100 I have to say that it was the best $100 spent in the Gold Coast. We had the best 2 hours of fun with my wife and 3 children from 9 to 14 years old. There are games for everyone and they are divided in colours. The best games normally are the red and purple ones, but to my liking I found that there were great games in yellow as well (which are unlimited when you purchase a pack) Moms and Dads out there, you must come to Timezone with your kids. You will love it. Also, you get to exchange your tickets for prices at the end :)
  • Good deals. Very fun for kids and especially adults of all ages. They seem to get more and more games somehow each time I come here. Also friendly staff. Great selection of prizes you win on a preloaded card. Less messy with good old tokens. Love this place!
  • Great service and bundles that can entertain any type of family or age group. Also round lovely staff and really fun games! Would go there again any day. ^_^
  • We've been here a few times already and always find the staff to be helpful even though they are always flat out. It is big with lots of machines to choose from. Difinitely a place to keep the kids entertained. There is also parking at the basement of the building which is handy. You also get a good deal with parking if you spend $50+++ in Timezone which comes in handy as regular parking is very expensive. Central location to all the good stuff in Surfers Paradise.
  • This is the place to go if you want to feel like a little kid again (or if you are a little kid, to let your imagination run wild!). Countless shooting, driving and dancing arcadey games fill this area and the digital card/ticket system was quick and flawless in my experience. You can spend hours here if you want. Bring friends and you'll have a blast. The dodgems and mini bowling alley are notable attractions to this place. I personally preferred the basketball hoops (I got to pretend I was Michael Jordan).
