Gamebox at Paya Lebar Quarter


Many 90s kids will remember spending their after-school noons at a nearby arcade with friends trying to beat each other’s high scores. The thrill from playing and winning coupons to redeem prizes was worth what little pocket money we got to spend on these games.

Paya Lebar Quarter’s (PLQ) gaming pop-up, Gamebox, will bring all those memories flooding back. From now till 6th November, the outdoor Plaza will be turned into a gamified playspace with gaming arenas, live performances, and plenty of photo ops.


Neon gaming arenas with 10 games


PLQ Gamebox

There’s a lot to cover, so here’s the lowdown on what to expect at Gamebox – 3 gaming arenas featuring classic favourites and new games, the Prism Portal and lights installation which is where you take photos for the ‘Gram, and the stage where performers will entertain over the weekends.

There are also Lendlease Plus$, which can be exchanged for e-vouchers, to be won when you hit the objectives of each game. So, let the games begin.

video game

Ready, player one? Head to the Solo Arena where you battle against the leaderboard to prove your salt. The zone debuts 4 spanking new games – Turbo, Timeout, Froggie, and Gone Fishing. 

If the kiddos want to play too, Froggie and Gone Fishing are both suitable for ages 9 and up. In Gone Fishing, players aim to catch fishes to gain points with rare fishes offering more points. With Froggie, the player is a tadpole that has to evolve to a frog by eating fishes and worms within the shortest amount of time while avoiding bumping into bigger fishes.

PLQ Gamebox go kart go

Groups that wanna have some fun together, make your way to the Party Arena which offers 3 family-friendly multiplayer games – FNAKBALL, Go Kart Go!, and Tower Game.

With Go Kart Go!, up to 4 friends or family members compete in a race and use wacky power-up items to slow down or sabo their opponents in a bid to finish first.

PLQ Gamebox arcade games

The Hyper Arena will have 3 arcade favourites giving us all the nostalgic feels. Show off your musical talent with Drum Mania, play a variety of mini video games on Bishi Bashi Channel, and shoot for the stars with Up and Away. 


Games bazaar & toy stalls

Layangman will be offering a free-to-play shooting game where you can stand a chance to win prizes when you hit a minimum high score. 


Live performances by local artists over the weekends

If you’re at PLQ on the weekends, you might spot a few familiar faces serenading the crowd at the Plaza. Every Friday to Sunday, local artists such as Marcus Lee, Joie Tan, and Jason Yu will perform live from 7pm till late.


IG-worthy photo ops


PLQ light installation

In accordance with the neon theme, the electric backdrops at the Kaleidoglobes Installation and Prism Portal offer the perfect opportunity to snap your own IG-worthy photos.

Walk across the road towards the illuminated neon globes at the PLQ Parkside to see the lights installation and even stand a chance to win $100 Lendlease e-vouchers when you post your photos with the orbs with the hashtag #PLQGamebox.
