Kingpin

At the third level of Melbourne Central is Kingpin, described as "most stylish and comprehensive entertainment complex". It has bowling lanes, snooker, air hockey, video games, karaoke, and all sorts of things that will entertain you!

You can arm yourself with the rechargeable VIP card which can be used in all of the games (including the pool tables, where you need to leave an ID for the cue ball and the rest of the balls get released after swiping the card). There is a $15 play-all-you-can-for-an-hour, which you'd be better off if you would like to stay there for a while. Otherwise, just pay whatever credit you want, and pay per game. The snooker table meters in for $4 per game, the arcade games are typically $2. So the $15 card appears to be the best option.

The card would not let you play simultaneous games though, for instance if you wanted to play linked games and just had one $15 card. It will lock you out after you've hit the start button for the first game. (although later on you will realize that there is a particular amount of time in between swipes that would let you do so!!!)

The venue offers quite a lot to do lives up to its name as an entertainment center, the interior decor is contemporary and a bottle of Boags Beer clocks in at $7.50. More info on their site.

Those Who Stopped By

Scribe's Notes

This pitstop is where incoherent ramblings seem to have meaning, where things or events are thought of and assessed, where great things are documented and perhaps any not-so-good happenings are written down in attempt to be forgotten!

So from the diversely abstract to the intensely specific, it's off to making tracks, and it is here where it stops for a thought or two.
