Bigger and better

Timezone Riccarton has taken a Mario-sized jump into a brand new 2,200 sqm venue, three times larger than the previous location, just a
few doors down on Rotherham Street. 

The original Riccarton Mall Timezone location has been creating family fun for 14 years and is now better than ever with its brand-new state-of-the-art venue. 

A grand opening party was held on Saturday 7 November, and partygoers were treated to a visit from Buzz Lightyear and Mario who joined in the games and showered the crowd with prizes and giveaways. The spacious new gaming area was humming with face painters, balloon twisters, and crowds of people enjoying this special occasion. 

The new Timezone Riccarton boasts an improved gaming experience with 101 brand new games for guests to enjoy. The old prize counter concept has had a full revamp and is now a huge redemption shop, with all new prizes to select from. If you win, you can even trade your prize at a different game for another item, if you like.

In addition to the incredible offer of games, there are six lanes of ten pin bowling, laser tag, and for the first time in Christchurch, Spin Cars, which offer an upgraded dodgem car experience. Spin Cars are very popular with young and old alike. But wait there’s more! In December, Timezone will open the gates to a brand new 12-hole Glow Golf course.

Party on
The new venue includes two brand new purpose-built party rooms and two dedicated party areas. The famous Timezone birthday parties are still designed to take away the stress of party planning, and now they are even more special than before.

A dedicated Timezone party host arranges everything in advance for you and then looks after the kids on the day, so the grown-ups can sit back and relax – or get busy on the games!

Belinda Falzon, Timezone’s NZ Chief Operations Officer says Timezone focuses on providing guests with a fun experience they will not only love but one where lifelong memories are created too.

“We’re delighted that we’ve upsized and upgraded our Riccarton venue, taking it to the next level bringing more fun and laughter for more guests. Providing a range of entertaining activities all under the one roof helps busy families enjoy great experiences together, whatever the age or weather. 

“We are equally thrilled that the larger site is providing 22 jobs for locals, which is especially pleasing to be able to achieve in a year where job security has been challenging for many. We are in the business of bringing joy to people, and the awesome team we have on board are all part of this.”
