Unlike their computer playing counterparts, stunt cameramen and specialist firemen are experts when it comes to video flames. Prove your hot shot credentials with today’s Groupon: £50 worth of tokens for bowling, bumper cars, and video games for up to six at Namco Station.
Having satiated the needs of even the fiercest of button-bashers, the fun aficionados at Namco set about establishing a global network of arcades and funscapes where mortals could hone their digital reflexes. Testimony to one of the greatest games companies of the last 50 years , Namco Station, under the watchful gaze of the London Eye, is the capital's underground monument to the Japanese engenderers of Pac-Man, Tekken and Time Crisis. With a maze of enthralling arcade games, a bowling alley for those who still employ more than opposable thumbs at playtime, and an Italian dodgem arena, the double-deckered dungeon is a thrilling theatre of modernity.
Striding into the gaming citadel, up to six guests can enjoy a cache of credits to create their own playground programme, which can be used towards bowling, bumper cars or arcade games. Refreshments are available at an extra cost from the bars, which show Sky Sports for eager fanatics. There’s also the in-house Costa Coffee branch, where Groupon holders can fuel their furious fast lane competitions or alternative-dimension forays.
