We had my son's 10th birthday party at Astro City, and he and his school friends loved it. Me and my husband loved it too, playing all the retro games, and we'd like to go back again for an adult's party next time!

If you want a great get together for all ages, this is it. It looks a little rough around the edges, but the adults will have a retro dream playing 'Time Crisis', whilst the kids are totally engrossed playing PacMan. £179 for two hours? Great...More

Hi Alison, There is no disabled access to Astro City and no lift. However, our staff will do their best to help anyone with prams or wheelchairs up the stairs. Please ask if you require assistance. Kind regards, Paul.
