Interactive Snake Game
We’re bringing this classic game to new generations – this school holidays, Snake is bigger and better than ever!

For those who missed the revolutionary game in its ‘90s heyday, the concept is pretty simple: manoeuvre a line (the snake) to eat food while it grows in length, its body becoming an obstacle in itself. Run into an obstacle or cannibalise yourself and it’s game over.

Connect to our dedicated Wi-Fi, _SNAKE_ and use your initials to enter the game. No password needed.

When: Saturday 30 June – Sunday 15 July
Where: Opposite Big W
Time: Staffed from 10am – 3pm (available during centre trading hours)
Cost: Free
