  • This was an amazing, if not slightly bizarre experience. We came here after seeing it was included on the New York pass. The place has a great explanation of history. There’s also a bar, cinema and loads of games to play, which I absolutely wasn’t expecting at all. It also has a really cool vibe generally and the staff are informative. I’d recommend this place. However, just be aware that the New York pass doesn’t cover playing the games.
  • Awesome place to visit. It started off slow but by the end it was well worth the price of admission. You're met with a couple galleries to start with but it really turns up with the games. They are all QR code equipped and you get to play multiple games. There are 2 rides in there as well. There's also a slide at the end to get you to the lounge area. Excellent place to visit but would not plan a day around it. We coupled it with a trip to the Warhol Art Gallery and it worked out perfectly.
