Power UP

160 consoles. Five decades... Game on.

This hands-on, fully interactive gaming event features the very best video games and consoles from the past five decades. From Pong to Pacman and Minecraft to Mario, there’s something for everyone, whether you’re a retro games fan, a serious gamer or just want to beat your family at Mario Kart.

Play against friends in multiplayer showdowns, rediscover your childhood favourites and test out some of the latest virtual reality experiences at this ultimate gaming extravaganza.

Check out the Power UP floor map to see which games/ consoles you’ll be jumping on first and to find your way around the exhibition.

Due to popular demand, we are extending Power UP into the summer! Tickets are now available until early June.

With more timeslots across the day, this exhibition will be open for all to get their fix of gaming fun, and then some!
