Arcades bring to mind fond memories of raucous games of air hockey, and trying to beat top scores at the basketball machine.
While the nature of arcades are very different today as compared to how they were in the past, what hasn’t changed is guaranteed fun for the entire family.
As one of the largest arcades in the city, Timezone promises just about every type of game imaginable, from modern ones like VR rides, to family-centric carnival games and classics like the Daytona USA.
Here are five of the most popular contemporary games you should check out at the Timezone arcades, which will change what you think an arcade can be.
1) Bumper cars
Bumper cars promise a heck of a time.
All you have to do is step on the pedal and turn the wheel, for a guaranteed “bumpity” time.
It’s thrilling and a ton of fun – whether you’re swerving to avoid a collision, or going full throttle after your friends and family.
Available exclusively at Timezone Vivocity.
2) Social bowling
Alternatively, have a ball of a time at Timezone’s sleek bowling alleys.
This family-friendly activity features lighter bowling balls and shorter lanes, making it an inclusive game for all ages.
Best of all, there’s no changing of shoes required.
Challenge friends and family to a friendly game, and see who can score that first strike or turkey.
3) Virtual Reality (VR) games
Beyond the staples, there are also new Virtual Reality (VR) games to level up your arcade experience.
Kids can go on thrilling amusement rides via Virtual Rabbids – where one can choose between an Alpine Adventure, Canyon Chaos, or Holiday Hijinks.
There are also VR games for the brave-hearted – such as King Kong of Skull Island and Storm VR.
Alternatively, for a more vigorous activity, give the ever popular beat saber a go, or engage in a virtual shoot-out with some zombies.
If you’re an avid video gamer, there’s the Minecraft Dungeons Arcade.
For the uninitiated, it’s the number one video game in the world.
Minecraft Dungeons Arcade allows up to four players at once, and comprises nine unique levels.
Players can also upgrade their characters with collectible cards, or redeem Minecraft merch with as little as 750 e-tickets.
5) Carnival games
Finally, what would be an arcade without carnival games?
Timezone offers these timeless games aplenty – from claw games and basketball, to Roll-a-ball, where players compete to roll their ball to different speed zones to get their racer toys across the finish line.
Yes, there are several cute plushies to be won.
