Retrodome-Freeplay Arcade

At Retrodome, we just love the classics, not the literary kind but the pixelated ones - video games!

We preserve the past for those old enough to remember and give the young a chance to experience a long lost icon of the 80's - the video games arcade.

Entry is by a fixed price day ticket which gives you access to all gaming areas.

We house classic gaming royalty. Approaching 5000 sqft, our collection is extensive and expanding with games dating from from the late 70's to much more recent titles. Housed over 3 industrial themed floors, we offer:

Fully licensed bar and eatery, coffee and comfort.

Retro and modern coin-op arcade machines all on Free Play.

Home video games consoles from all the major players.

Virtual Reality room and Rock Band room.

Two bookable party/event areas within the main arcade.

Who to contact


We maintain coin-op arcade machines, home video gaming consoles and virtual reality rigs. Whenever possible and practical we keep our machines original so you can enjoy an authentic experience without compromise. Classic games just arnt the same played on a bartop emulator with an LCD screen.

Whether retro or modern, our team goes to great lengths to try and ensure the games remain in tip-top working condition. Its requires a lot of work and dedication but as far as possible, all joysticks, spinners, buttons, lights and screens will work as intended.
