Had a ball for one of the kid’s birthday. Nice location and interesting idea to have games cafe attached. We did the 221b game. Puzzles were challenging enough to be interesting but solvable. Staff were great. Price was competitive and reasonable for the activity.

Hi there, that's great to hear you had a good time. We think it is a good activity for families and, as you say, it is handy to have the games cafe if you want to relax afterwards.
