GamesMania

This Summer over twenty days, experience four decades of gaming, as Glasgow Science Centre proudly presents, GamesMania!

GamesMania

About GamesMania

Between the 27th June and 16th July 2018 visitors can immerse themselves in hundreds of the most popular video games ever made for computers, consoles and arcade machines.

Come and enjoy cult classics and fantastic futurism, featuring Halo, Mario, Minecraft, Pong, Sonic and many more... across 150 different platforms!

It is an amazing opportunity to experience using rare and obsolete computers, controllers, joysticks and media (such as floppy disks and cartridges), try BASIC programming and find out about the history of the machines and game developers.

Demand is likely to be very high for these sessions and we recommend booking online well in advance of your visit to avoid disappointment. Booking opens online at 11am on 3rd May 2018.

Upgrade your GamesMania ticket to add a visit to the Science Mall before or after your family or autism-friendly session and benefit from a discounted Science Mall admission price

GamesMania is presented in association with Arcade Club and Gameplay Events

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for GamesMania are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
