New to Canberra, I love exploring this city and the secrets that it holds with my family.

Arcade wars with your family or friends this weekend?
iPlay amusement arcade (previously called Tunzafun) at Belconnen Westfield is a great way to spend some time with your family this Winter while the temperatures are hovering around freezing.
The only catch is that it can be tough on your wallet as the games are so addictive - so if you don't want the fun to get out of control you may need to set yourself a limit before you go!

The highlight for our daughter Miss Four was the ten pin bowling, with four lanes and a children's ramp to help them roll the ball down. Costing $10 a game, it is fun for the kids and they can stretch it out to last as long as possible. Two games cost $15, three games $20.

When you get to the counter you need to put money onto an iPlay card to play the amusement games. The more money you put on the card, the more bonus credit you receive. For example if you put $20 on a card, you get $24 credit - however you can put on less than $20 if you don't wish to spend that much.
You can also buy deals for half an hours play - for kids aged 10 years and under the "Super Kids Deal" is $11.95 for half an hours unlimited play on a variety of machines.

iPlay also has Laser Tag (with the same prices as bowling), four pool tables and dodgem cars - the only place in the ACT with a permanent dodgem car track. There is a height limit for kids to drive the dodgems and also to be a passenger. Our daughter Miss Four was disappointed that she couldn't be a passenger, so check the height chart before they get too excited.
The dodgem cars are $6 for one car, $10 for two.

When you get tired, they have tables and chairs in their "Chill Out Zone" with food to buy and they have a couple of massage chairs to sit back in and recharge your batteries.
