An excellent place to take friends or work collegues. Most people do not know it is here and if you go during the day it can be very quiet.
The drinks are very reasonable and it has great arcade games. The bumper cars is fantastic.
For small children there are games which give out tickets which you can change for toys or sweets.
A great place for all the family.
THis is a great place if you've got a whole group of mates and you want a good laugh and you want to kill off a load of hours
THere are some great arcade machines, the pool tables are good the bowling is great.
Also with all the different games, activities, arcades you collect tickets from these and with these tickets you can save them up for a prize. However i have to say the better prizes need a hell of a lot of tickets, however they are nice to collect.
The atmosphere in the place is what you would expect for an arcade style place, dark and funky.
THe place can be expensive, ecspecially if you get hooked on a machine even though its practically impossible to win.
Also you wish there was just more of everything, you know more arcades more tables etc.
Sorry the picture is a bit dark, the bar is 3 floors underground. To get to it you have to negotiate the upper floors filled with, slot machines, video games and other games you usually find in one of those places at popular seaside destinations, so you may spend your drinking money before you reach the bar. Has a lift for wheelchair access to all floors but there isn't a ramp to get into the building in the first place, I have asked the staff and security and they don't know of any either. More details to follow as soon as I find my notes. Sells food all day and does kids menu. No real ale. Has a selection of wines. Areas available for hire.
Namco Station in the County Hall is exactly the same company that does the amusements in the Trocadero in Picadilly Circus. Not a lot of people know about the amusements in the County Hall which actually makes it great to have some fun without the crowds. We once had our night out there with a bunch of people from work and challenged each other on the mini bowling alley which is quite cheap and you did not need any special shoes. They also have the popular dodgems set which is a must every time. There is a bar in the basement but that is quite pricey to go in their happy hour to save a few pounds. We wanted to play pool but they charge something like £5 for a deposit on the balls and then charged per minute to play, which sucks, makes you rush!
Great fun to hang out here. There is also a nice bar area if a little over priced but the games, bowling and dodgems are a lot of fun.
This is a great place to go if you like arcades, although it does not look fun at first glance it is well worth going as they have bowling, arcade games, bumper cars and some simulators as well as other things. There is also a bar which is a great place to sit down. You can win tickets from certain games which can be exchanged for prizes like an Xbox 360 or a Playstation 3. Overall it is a very fun place to go if you have some time to kill of just want to have fun. Kids will love it, but make sure you have enough money on you.
Great place to play games with friends. I actually visited here with work and had a lot of fun playing on the dodgems, trying out bowling and playing racing and shoot em up games. You can easily end up spending a fortune here, with £1 a pop for each of the games, and a few quid for the dodgems.
this is games arcade right in the heart of county hall,you must make sure you have enough money on you when you are visting,because there is quite a lot to see here,you have the bumper cars,there's the jackpot machine,if you are lucky you can make some money as well, from different kinds of games.Its worth it you have enough change to spear.
i was extremely suprised to learn about namco- its not something that is widely advertised, and, like akintaiwo says, you need plenty of cash. the great thing about namco is the system- you play to win tickets, the more tickets you have determines the sort of prize you get, certainly worth a visit, and not a bad way to spend the afternoon!
great place to spend a few hours. prices not too bad and good variety of rides and games. good family entertainment especially when it's raining. highly recommend.
