Ready to Level up Your Half Term?

21 February 2023

Arcade Alley, a retro-inspired pop-up arcade experience, has arrived at Merry Hill.

This February half term we are celebrating the upcoming release of The Super Mario Bros. Movie with a one-of-a-kind retro inspired pop-up event.

The free-to-attend experience brings back some seriously classic entertainment, including Sega Rally duo racing game and a range of legendary arcade machines including Pac-Man, Street Fighter and of course Super Mario. Test your arcade gaming skills, or challenge friends to a match of air hockey or a dance-off, and capture the fun in the giant-sized Game Boy selfie booth or selfie mirror.

Jonathan Poole, Centre Manager at Merry Hill said: “We’re helping our visitors level-up their Merry Hill visit over February half term, and this is something the entire family can enjoy.

“The Super Mario Bros. inspired pop-up experience, Arcade Alley, will transport the original arcade generation back to their ‘80’s childhood and it will test the skills of the new generation of gamers too.

“There are some fantastic prizes up for grabs, from your very own arcade game machine to a VIP screening experience at Merry Hill. We look forward to seeing which player takes first place.”

Aracade Alley is here until Friday 24th February, 11am – 6pm daily. Find Arcade Alley in the Central Event Space on the Lower Mall, near M&S and Mango.

Arcade Alley is now SOLD OUT, although walk-ups are welcome, subject to availability. Children under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult.

Fancy bringing the arcade fun home? For your chance to win your very own full-sized arcade game machine, a £100 Merry Hill Gift Card, as well as a VIP family ticket bundle to see the brand-new Super Mario Bros film at the ODEON, simply take a selfie at the Selfie Mirror, inside the event space, or the Game Boy photo station, near Mango, and share with us via direct message or by tagging the official Merry Hill social media channels…
