Frequently Asked Questions

What is the age suitability?

The experience is for ages 8+.  Children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult. There must be at least one adult per Playbox. Younger children are welcome to attend without a ticket, this is not to play but to join your family group. The lighting can be darker whilst playing the Adventures, please be aware of them in there with you!

How does pricing work?

We are introducing a flat pricing structure from 4 July, this will revert to our standard peak / off-peak structure in the future. Currently, tickets are £19 for adults and £9 for under 16. For groups larger than 24 per-Playbox pricing applies, please see large group booking for details.

What should I wear?

Please wear sensible footwear; flat shoes or trainers. No open toes or heels. We advise one layer, you may get warm.

Are there any physical requirements?

You will be moving around your Playbox as the controller of the game, however our games aren’t too physical and all contained in one pod. Electric Playbox Adventures all contain digital projections which are a source of flickering light. Due to the use of projectors, the interior of this installation is dimly lit. Please talk to a member of staff or email [email protected] if you have any questions.

Can I bring my phone with me?

We aren’t going to take your phone off you- remember to tag us when you post! Get ready for some great photo opps in our Playboxes!

Can I store my stuff?

We have lockers for small bags and coats, however we do not accept suitcases, large backpacks or bikes inside our unit. Please seek alternative arrangements for storing such items. 

Will I be put with other groups?

You won’t be put in with another group if you don’t want to. We are on a mission to bring people together, so if you want to join with other groups, we’re happy to accommodate if there is room! Please note that bookings including kids require at least one adult per Playbox.

If I have a disability or access requirements can I still take part in the games?

Most disabilities and access requirements can be accommodated but we want to make sure the games are safe for everyone, so if you’re not sure, get in touch before booking and we can help you figure it out. Electric Playbox Adventures contain digital projections that are a source of flickering light. Due to the use of projectors, the interior of this installation is dimly lit. Please talk to a member of staff or email [email protected] if you have any questions. If you have a carer whose help you need to access the experience, please email [email protected]
