From Spin Zone bumper cars to virtual reality games, a new Timezone entertainment venue opened its doors at Stockland Shellharbour earlier this week.
On Friday, avid gaming fan Oscar Carter, 9, from Kiama was keen to tackle the Mario Kart and Virtual Rabbits games.
"I like virtual reality a lot," he told the Mercury.
"I don't have one at home, and I really like it."
The new venue officially opened on Thursday, offering just under 80 arcade games and attractions.
Aimee Lynch, marketing manager of Timezone said it had been "very well-received" so far, with Thursday's response beyond expectations.
With the nearest Timezone located at Miranda, she anticipated punters would travel some distance to visit the Shellharbour site.
"Timezone has been around just over four decades... I think there's a game for everyone, it brings people together and it's entertainment overload," she said of the brand's enduring appeal.
"I think everyone has a Timezone story to tell from when they were a kid."
Kane Fong, general manager of Timezone, said Timezone Shellharbour would fulfil the need for an accessible, safe and fun entertainment space venue that was suitable for all ages.
"We go to great lengths to create attractive spaces that are bright, airy, interactive and packed with the latest, greatest games and attractions - ideal for the community to come together, share an experience and create memories," he said.
Besides mastering the range of arcade games, guests can also challenge their friends to a "bump off" on the Spin Zone bumper cars, a modern version of a traditional bumper car.
All attractions in the venue are powered by Timezone's tap-system Powercard, whereby guests can tap to play and store game credits and Powertickets on one card.
Powertickets earned from playing can be swapped for prizes in the Winner's Vault.
