Timezone Australia's Tenth NSW Location Is Opening in Central Park

Throw it back to your childhood with Street Fighter, pinball and laser tag.

Australia is all about the kidult craze. We've got trampoline gyms and bouncing castle obstacle courses, Holey Moley mini golf bars and their arcade sibling Archie Brothers, along with Australia's biggest game of hide and seek going down this Sunday.

Among all these fancy new ways to throw it back to your childhood, it's no surprise that Timezone Australia is still going strong. The nostalgic mega-arcade is now set to open its tenth location in New South Wales, this time in Chippendale's Central Park shopping centre in mid-2018. This outpost will join George Street's Event Cinemas as the second Sydney CBD location and was chosen because of the concentrated student population in the area.

It'll stock all your old favourite games, from Street Fighter and Big Buck to pinball, street basketball and laster tag. Timezone has some new games in the mix too, including a Walking Dead spin-off and a Tetris-like one that uses holographic technology. In lieu of the paper tickets you remember, gamers collect points on a power-card tap system, which you can use toward those poorly made prizes you'll invariably break or misplace.

The new space will sit next to the food court on Level 2 and is said to be "vibrant, inviting and modern" — though we find a "bright and airy" arcade hard to imagine. Either way, it'll be game on.

Timezone Central Park will open at Level 2, 28 Broadway, Chippendale early in the second quarter of 2018. For updates and more information, keep on eye on their Facebook.
