Games were really expensive. Minimum of $2 per game. We spent almost 200 in total. But the kids had fun. Food wasn’t so great would recommend to eat elsewhere before coming here.

Can’t fault this arcade. Kids went crazy when we took them and they loved it. We spent 2 hours in here and about $70. Highly recommended if you need to kill a few short hours but not big enough for half day or more.

We had so much fun at Kingpin and were very well looked after! The staff were all super friendly and helpful. Loved being able to order food and drinks from your bowling lane. Very affordable and will definitely be back!

I booked online in advance for the "Night Time Unlimited" for four people. I felt disappointing we had to keep going back (and explain our unlimited purchase), to front desk after each game was finished. But what I found even more outrageous was the fact...More

Hi there, thank you for reaching out, it is good to hear the team accommodated your booking correctly. Unfortunately due to our booking system not recognising "Unlimited" bookings we may have to move bookings if there is one on the same lane. This is all...More
