Our 5 player VR birthday party packages are for players aged 8+ and allow for a maximum of 1 spectator (aged 18+ years) to attend and supervise any minors in the group. Unfortunately, the law does not allow us to permit any more than 5 players + 1 spectator aged 18+ to attend.

 

We'll handle everything on the day, allowing the party organiser to attend as the designated spectator and watch all of the action for free on large spectator TV screens. You get an optional 30 minutes free use of our private upstairs party space after everyone has finished playing to allow time to eat some pizzas or celebrate with a birthday cake. With the exception of a birthday cake, you can't bring your own food and drink with you - but we can provide the food, drink, party decorations ...and even the birthday cake!

Information for parents / party organisers


  • We are a Covid-19 secure venue. You can see the steps we have taken to keep our customers and staff safe by clicking here.
  • To comply with the law, a maximum of 6 individuals from different households may meet up and socialise together as a part of a group or booking. By definition, a 'group' consists of 6 individuals attending our store as part of a booking - regardless of who is playing or spectating. Our 5 player limit (accompanied by 1 person attending to spectate / supervise the players) fully complies with this new 6 person limit law.
  • Unfortunately this new law means that we are unable to accomodate further spectators / parents attending the booking. The one permitted spectator (or adult aged 18+ for players under 15 years) is reserved for the party organiser or their designated person.

Our bronze party package (60 minutes of play time in VR) is limited to the selection of games below. These games have been handpicked by staff as they are great fun, get players into the action quickly and can be played by 5 players together in the same game.

  • Upgrade for an additional £5.00 per player (£25 total) to give players access to our full games library containing over 50+ games to play. Our unlimited party package comes with full games library access as standard, but we recommend that players start with one of the beginners games first.

  • Parents MUST NOT enter the store to drop off or their child.
  • Please drop your child off at the entrance to our store and watch them go inside before leaving. The party organiser (or their designated person responsible/spectating) will be waiting in our reception area to greet your child as they enter.
  • Our staff will also be on hand to keep everything organised and ensure social distancing laws are being adhered to.
  • All children and the party organiser will be directed to use hand sanitiser on arrival and throughout their booking duration.
--- Pickup policy: ---
  • At the end of the booking, parents MUST NOT enter the store to collect or wait for their child.
