Arcade at Metrocentre

It doesn’t matter what incredible gaming consoles you might have at home or what cool apps you’ve got on your smartphone, there’s still nothing to beat the experience of playing video games the way they were meant to be played, in an arcade.


With loads of exciting video games to play, this is a gamer’s paradise! We’ve got shoot’em-ups, race car simulators and even those tricky claw games where you try to pick up a teddy bear.


You can buy arcade tokens for just £1 while there’s plenty of prizes on offer too, including games consoles!

Prizes to be Won

Video amusements start from £1 a go meaning it’s so affordable and simple to have a great time in our arcades. Lots of our machines offer prizes too, so you can test your skills, collect as many tickets as you can and then redeem them at our prize shop for anything from a keyring to a games console, depending on how many tickets you’ve earned.
