How old do I need to be to visit and play games in Rainbow Playlab?
Rainbow Playlab is open for everyone to visit, however children 14 and under should be accompanied by a parent or adult guardian.
Our age recommendations for the center vary depending on the activity. We reserve the right to refuse access to content we deem to be challenging or unsuitable for children.
Ages 8+, game content and classification dependent.
While we recommend E-Sports for ages 8 and up, we use gaming certification to restrict what games are available to players at log in.
For example, if the player is aged between 13-14, games certified for ages 15+ won't be visible to them.
Players are asked for age at login, and this will filter out any games restricted from their age. Staff may ask for proof of age when setting up a gamer for play. In some instances, we will allow access to games with parental approval, such as Fortnite for Children under 12.
A full list of our E-Sports games and their age classification is on the E-Sports information page
Ages 7+, content dependent.
Our game selection includes family friendly content styles (Groove Guardians and Cold Clash) or more extreme adrenaline pumping action content (Zombyte and Simurai).
We retain the right to refuse to play content for minors, where we deem the content unsuitable.
Details on current Virtual Reality Experiences and upcoming, along with their suitability, can be found on our Virtual Reality info page.
VIRTUAL SWORD FIGHTING:
This is energetic play, suitable for the whole family, as long as they can hold up our foam swords.
There is no issue with content in the Arcade, but the mix of games in Rainbow Playlab may be more engaging for kids 7 and up.
There is a second Arcade in Kidz Kingdom, perfect for kids under 8. Your Arcade game card will work at both locations.
