Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Had my sons birthday party here and in his words "best party ever!!" Great range of games and activities to do, the staff were amazing and went the extra mile to make the experience as stress free as possible. Nothing was too much for Becky and Eliott and they were awesome! Great range of food with the party package and can highly recommend to anyone for a party or just to play.

Came with a group of 8. Cool place but did find that a large percentage of the games at the time were either broken I.e pedals not working or console sticks not working you get the idea.

Was alittle disappointed at the time and unsure weather I'd go back, if this is the case again

Has alot of potential needs work.

Good food. Cheap beer. Loads of games to play. Will definitely be returning. I’ll probably book a longer time slot to get more gaming in !

Several main title machines out of order. With some crashing in front of me, ignored by staff for hours. Can't hear anything except the smashing of air hockey. Upstairs: can't hear sound from the console set ups either as volume set too low with no way of changing it manually. Kitchen out of order. No friendly or professional welcome. Retro consoles would look much better on CRT sets.

We enjoyed ourselves. There was a good range of retro arcade machines, air hockey, foosball and also more modern consoles hooked up to some popular games. The kids loved it. 2hrs was just about the right amount of time, as all machines set to free-play. Kids really enjoyed the milkshakes too. We actually went on a sunny day, just to get out the sun for a while, but will certainly be back on rainy days or when we have some time to kill.

I love the Insanity Gaming Arcade! It's so much fun, the burger and drink options are very good and very reasonably priced, the staff are friendly, the premises are nice and clean, and it's great value. I'm a big fan of the air hockey table! I vastly prefer coming here than going to the pub because there are so many fun things to do. My kids love it too.

Great place for kids, & adults enjoy it too😍. Had a kids party there in September 2022. Staff were so helpful. Nothing too much trouble, & very helpful when I mentioned my son was a fussy eater. All the kids had a great time.
Great value for money & the loads enjoyed the food. Definitely recommend.

Excellent place to take the kiss (and also us oldies who love the old games from memory lane!) The food is amazing. Weds are half price, which is a great treat for the kids after school. Love this place. We'll worth a visit.
