A Healthy Dose of Neon-Lit Competition

If there’s anything we’re sure of, it's that everyone loves a good game. If you’ve got scores to settle with your friends or bets to make, what better way than a high-octane race? No, not on the streets of Christchurch. On Maxitune ofcourse - that’ll show them who’s right. With arcade games that span far and high, you can dunk a few hoops one second and go on a ‘Pink Date’ with plushies the next here at Timezone. But wait, there’s more!

Fun and excitement aside, if you get in the zone and spend your time collecting Powertickets, you can redeem awesome prizes ranging from the all-time kid’s favourite - slime - and to a snazzy iPhone. Now, that’s a deal you wouldn’t want to miss out on!
