For centuries the human race has always found different ways to play. Having fun and competing with friends helps us build strong bonds and is a healthy thing to do. It’s built into our DNA – especially in New Zealand where we grow up around the many forms of sport & recreation. It’s part of our story – especially in Sunny Nelson!
The great American writer Mark Twain once said,
“Work and play are words used to describe the same thing under differing conditions.”
In this fast-paced world we live in, putting aside time for play has never been more beneficial for our mental health.
Kids play and learn important life skills like teamwork, perseverance, hand skills, rapid learning, and also the joy of winning (and losing).
Timezone Arcade in Nelson provides a stimulating and safe space for play.
It’s one of the world’s biggest family entertainment companies. With 18 venues located all over New Zealand, the Queenstown Timezone (Kingpin) was recently voted 3rd best venue in the world by IAAPA!
With technology sharing and in-house systems shared, Timezone in Nelson offers a world class user experience and if the many Google reviews are anything to show, they are really hitting the mark in our CBD and they keep getting better.
Featuring both solo or multi-player games, the layout is easy to navigate and a hit with the kids (and parents). There’s carnival, sports, driving and dance games. They also have a party room. There’s helpful staff onsite, time will stand still, and users experience the latest in Play technology.
It’s a cashless system which means a simple/secure card top up at the start and you are good to go! There are loads of fun prizes to be won.
We spoke with James Woodbridge, the TEEG NZ General Manager.
“We call our staff the Fun Squad. They are a huge part of the Timezone experience. We hire our staff based on their attitude and teach them the ropes. The staff get involved and play when needed and have a genuine passion for this style of entertainment. We get such a huge buzz out of watching families and friends come together and have fun.”
It’s the ideal solution for kids parties, rainy day entertainment, and corporate team building events.
“In Nelson we can host up to 100 people at a time and make sure everyone is well looked after. With many working from home these days, it’s beneficial for any team to get together in person and enjoy some fun games together.” says James.
James is based in Auckland but walks the talk when it comes to fun. His kids are active in the basketball leagues and they travel to games as a family.
Here’s a few of the 193 glowing Google reviews:
“Great place for a family outing with the kids, lots of fun games that even the adults can get in on, lots of cool prizes to be won as well!”
“Great experience, ended up spending a lot more time than was originally planned, we ended up with about 6000 tickets at the end of the day, there was a pretty big selection of prizes, highly recommended!”
Timezone is well maintained with great security so you can relax knowing your children are going to have a great time.
