This museum has over 100 video games on show, some dating back to 1970s. There's also an entire interactive gaming area where the adults can replay all their childhood favourites and show off their skills to the little ones. This spot is an experience the whole family can enjoy. Check out their school holiday program on their website - Pokemon and pizza are involved, need we say more?

On the edge of Wellington Street, you'll find the newly opened Strike Bowling. This venue opened up in Forrest Chase only a month ago and is the only bowling alley in Perth CBD.
