Life is about the journey - some roads are not always what they seem but you sure learn a great deal from them!

Who remembers space invaders? I certainly do. In fact I remember playing space invaders on our TV using an old dial type player pad attached to a bulky console that you had to insert a game into. I think we had a choice of 4 games and you could purchase others if you found yourself a little bored.
Of course, gaming has come a long way since. We have smartphones, I-Pads, and even the consoles have changed considerably with players able to play real-time 3D games. In a matter of 3 decades, we have gone from dots on a screen to real-life experience with the latest arrivals of virtual reality headsets.
Take a step back and play games the way it was originally created!
At The Nostaliga Box, visitors can see what it was like back 'then' and play games on consoles that you can only read about on Google! Of course, if you want to take a piece of history back with you, the Nostalgia Box has a shop where you can purchase souvenirs and old consoles. I wonder how many teenagers could handle the old version of PONG (which was known as Tennis)?
The Nostalgia Box is open 7 days a week from 9:30 am to 5 pm. Parking can be tricky on a Sunday during church services, however there should be ample parking along streets and in parking bays.
Entry fees are $40 for a family, $10 for concessions and $14.00 for adults. Personally, I think this would be a perfect place to host a teenage birthday party.
You can find The Nostalgia Box at Shop 3, 16 Aberdeen Street, Northbridge, Perth or you can view their website for more details.I would definitely recommend The Nostalgia Box to anyone who is interested about Games and it is on my call back list for another look and play!
