FAQ

🎮 WHICH AREAS DO YOU COVER?

We cover London and 60min outside the M25. (Get in touch if you’re a little further out and we’ll see if we can still help)

🎮 WHAT IF IT RAINS?

Our All-Weather Heated Tents are designed to keep everyone dry and warm even in the worst of weather. The tents large and well-ventilated so all there is plenty of room for social distance and plenty of fresh air moving throughout.

🎮 HOW MUCH SPACE DO WE NEED?

We typically need about 4mx7m of space for our gaming parties but can have options for smaller spaces. We have long extension leads so we can be up to 50m from the house.

🎮 ARE THERE TRAVEL COSTS?

No. There are no additional costs to booking any of our parties. The prices shown on our booking form are the total cost of the party. 

Why we do what we do!

At Pop Up Arcade, we believe that you only get one 8th birthday, and it deserves to be special! Some of our best childhood memories are of having a group of mates over and all crowding around a single screen to battle it out on the original Super Smash Bros. for the Nintendo 64. 

 

We created Pop Up Arcade to capture those childhood gaming experiences and take them to another level. We’ve combined all the latest consoles, games, and fantastic gaming tech to create Our Ultimate Gaming Parties.

 

A lifetime of all-night gaming sessions, queuing up for midnight FIFA launches, and trying to work out how to take an old-style PC monitor on the bus went into making these parties. We hope they’ll be as special to you as they are to us.

Our CEO, 22 years ago.
