👾LOVED👾the visit! There is a big variety of old gaming consoles to try and a relaxed atmosphere with not too many people. Good location away from the hustle and bustle of the main drag. We didn’t have to wait to play on any consoles. The store person was really friendly and helpful and overall a wicked experience! Recommended for all ages and a great place for kids birthdays if they’re into games.
Unplanned most favorite stop while I’m Perth! We visited Perth during the summer and knew it would be hot but we didn’t plan enough balance of inside and outside activities so on day 1 the kids were dying from the heat so we tried to find a good museum to take them to and this popped up. It took a little convincing to get them to agree to go but once we arrived it was all up hill from there! What a cool little place! We didn’t make a reservation and were lucky when we arrived that a school holiday event/booking was just leaving. The place isn’t very big but it’s jam packed with all the old video games from our great childhood and old TV’s to go with it!! It was such a trip back in time that we didn’t know how to begin and then didn’t know how to end! One amazingly great addition to this great great place is that your entry fee (very cheap) allows you to play all the games for the full day!!! You can come & go all day which is unheard of! So if you really want to try and break that old Atari record you can start your challenge in the morning break for lunch & let your fingers rest then come back again to finish off the day! They even have a snack bar (chips & drinks & candy bars) if you don’t want to leave. You will be very surprised as the condition of the games too…you can see some wear but really they are in good condition. Also, if you don’t see a game you are looking for just ask the owner and most likely he has it hidden away. And speaking of owner…if I could give a rating he would be a 10! Super friendly, super happy and amazing shop! We are only visiting but we saw the signage for byob trivia nights, birthday parties and other events that make this not only a great tourist destination but a great regular place to visit if you live in Perth. I’m not into video games at all but highly recommend you to go there and support this great little hidden gem. Your inner kid will thank you for it.
A great retro gaming museum that brings back memories of the good old days of classic games. You can play the games too. The owner is very friendly and gives a tour of the history of consoles. Highly recommended
What a great time! Trip down memory lane. Museum display of all the old systems and gaming devices with info. Heaps of games to play. Super cheerful staff. Hadnt pre booked, stayed for 2 hours! Well worth the entry fee. Better than Timezone!! Went on a Wed arvo, wasn't busy, plenty of games for all. Pong, Ninja Turtles, Street Fighter, Multiple Sonic games, multiple Mario games, and more. Happy customers
Kid noticed some Mario murals on the outside and wanted to go in... Didn't expect too much tbh. The guy (Dave) at the counter was an Energizer bunny oozing positivity. His vibes set the tone for the visit and it was amazing! Walking through you see multiple retro consoles with brief and informative snippets. Interesting facts accompanied each console through the ages. Further into the room there are a couple of arcade machines which really brought back memories. Middle part of the room was decked with multiple consoles...Nintendo family com... Sega Saturn.. Xboxes of different gens... PlayStations.. and all playable! Amazing stuff.. really nostalgia overflowing... What was supposed to be a half hour time passer ended up throughly spending an entirely enjoyable day there. Hundred percent would recommend anyone wanting to relieve their childhood, and to allow their kids to experience a glimmer of what the 80s and a simpler time was all about.
