 If you're looking for an activity for all the family then why not head for the newly opened High Score Arcade in the Dolphin Centre Poole. High Score Arcade boasts an impressive collection of classic arcade games such as Pac Man, Time Crisis, Terminator and many more. The variety of games available ensures there's something for every gaming enthusiast - whether you're a casual player or a seasoned pro. And the best part? It's free-play so you can challenge your friends and family over and over again until you win ;)

High Score Arcade Poole is situated in the old Market Gallery unit and it's much bigger than I remembered. This means that there is plenty of space for the machines and never feels too crowded. There is a section for smaller children which Erin enjoyed exploring but she loved trying out the rest of the games throughout the arcade. The brilliant thing about free-play is that she could have a go on something and if she didn't like it, she just moved on to the next one. 

Erin and I both loved the rollercoaster simulator - I don't think she was expecting her chair to wobble as much as it did!

Elliot is a bit of a gamer so he was in his element - he made a bee line for the Star Wars game and had lots of fun beating his Dad on the basketball hoops!

The cost for an hours play is £11.95 (under 5's are free) and I think this is great value. They also do family tickets and even concessions for Blue Light Card holders. 

There is no cafe however they do sell water/soft drinks and although you can't take these into the arcade, there is a large seating area called the "Hub" which you are welcome to relax in. 

High Score have some special events on over the remaining weeks of the Summer Holidays - you win free return tickets so I'd definitely recommend checking these out: 


Overall we had a great time and I know we will definitely be back again soon for more arcade fun!
