How do I get in to the event, does it cost extra on top of my ticket price?

No there is no additional cost! However if you would like to play the VR games then there is an additional cost for this.

Do I need to book a timeslot before visiting the event, or are guests simply queuing to enter?

Yes, there are time slots every hour which will give you 45 minutes of game play. If you would like to spend longer playing, you will have to book into multiple time slots. Please note that these are first come, first served. 

What if all timeslots are filled or if a guest misses their timeslot?

If the event is ‘sold out’ in advance then this will be communicated on our social channels and website in advance, so keep an eye out. 

Are there any age restrictions for this event?

Select games will have an aged 12 advisory therefore we ask for parents to be present with children who wish to play these games and are under the age of 12.
