Immersive Gamebox Manchester with Kids – A Review

As far as gaming experiences for kids go, Manchester has a growing and vast range of options. We headed off to check out Immersive Gamebox in the Arndale and here’s our review.

My eldest two sons are gaming obsessed. So a day out that involves anything gaming themed is absolutely always a win.

I read about Immersive Gamebox in Manchester and decided to give it a go! We booked a Junior Bundle and headed off on a weekend afternoon.

@staceyhikes Little throwback to Immersive Gamebox with the eldest two a few months ago. There are so many things to do with kids in Manchester now that I think we’re often a bit too spoilt for choice. But this was a no brainer for me given how gaming obsessed my biggest two are. And it was brilliant! #immersivegamebox #thingstodoinmanchester #daysoutwithkids #gamerkids ♬ Get Ready – Steve Aoki Vocal Radio Edit – 2 Unlimited

Immersive Gamebox Review in Summary

In summary it was 5/5 for the kids. ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ 

And in all honesty, I’d give it the same. It’s easy to get to, fun, not too long an experience that they got sick of it and in all a successful way to spend a time for gaming obsessed kids.

How the Kids Rated it⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️

It’s very, very easy to get to being right in the centre of Manchester in the Arndale Centre. The usual parking-is-a-pain-and-traffic-is-a-nightmare caveats apply but you can jump on the Metrolink, bus or train from anywhere in Greater Manchester and even further afield quite easily.

What Happens in Immersive Gamebox?

We arrived 10 minutes early but our box was already ready, so we were led straight through. A member of staff came into the booth with us and told us which visor to each put on and we were talked through how to use the unit, what would happen and so forth.

It’s very, very straightforward to use.

It doesn’t take long until you’re gaming and honestly, my boys absolutely loved this. It was so much fun and they worked up one hell of a sweat with all the jumping around too.

Here are some photos from their Immersive Gamebox experience.


Food and Drink at Immersive Gamebox

We only bought a couple of soft drinks and didn’t eat anything. We were heading for food after. So I can’t comment much on it but they did bring drinks they brought direct to our booth, which was handy.

Anything We Didn’t Like?

For us as a group of three it was fab. But if you were taking a large group (e.g. a group of friends for a birthday) you may end up in 2 different booths which makes it a little less sociable. So more a smaller group activity.

Would we go back?

Absolutely! Already have done and will again!
