Prices unreasonable, place is outdated and dirty and the staff are rude. I would not recommend visiting here.

This is easily found up the escalators/lift opposite the Timezone, off Cavill Mall. The four of us bought just the one game (to ten) and this was plenty. Staff member was helpful and very friendly. Good family fun.
