As title says, this was a great place for everyone, whether it's a group of friends or a family or just a solo person. Huge arcade with plenty of arcade machines and prize winning machines. They also have mini golf, a laser tag game and bumper cars there. The cost to play depends on which package you choose but there... More

So many options for any spender and any age, old or young! A number of games are only 1 to 2 dollars each and provide heaps of fun and enjoyment! The entire complex is... More

Absolutely love Timezone Surfers Paradise. This place is huge and has so many games to keep everyone happy. Right in the centre of Surfers, its easily accessible. Love that the tickets load automatically onto your card so no bothering with paper tickets. I honestly could spend hours here, its so much fun.

This is one of the biggest arcades i have ever been to and would visit if you are in the gold coast. It is placed perfectly in the heart of Cavill Ave.

I am in my 50's and have a great time, but what I love to see is the young ones having a good time. Really there is something for all ages but be warned time gets away from you. Enjoy

This was so much fun! Definitely worth the money! A range of games for all ages and abilities with most of them well priced. We will definitely be going back.

We went here after dinner for a super session which is alot better value than paying for the games individually. Pinballs were the highlight and the car racing games, great fun for us as a couple.

Timezone has changed a lot since our last visit, and it is a change for the better as it was dated and poor value for years. It is now much better value (more play for your money), with a range of packages available. The range of games and entertainment means that there is something suitable for all age groups, and...
