1. Gaming reloaded

You’ll be amazed at the astounding choice of ArCain’s action. With retro fun from Pacman and Frogger, combat classics like Street Fighter and your favourite shoot ‘em up action with titles like Halo.

When you need to restock your gaming engines, pause and refuel with retro-inspired eats and treats including pick ’n’ mix, popcorn, hot dogs and nachos – and keep on gaming! Thirsty work? Get your game face on and grab a beer, mix it up with a cocktail or go old skool with a super cool slushy!
