welcome to Game Space, the newly opened uber-cool gaming lounge at Dubai airport. The lounge, which opened last month, is one of its kind in the region and fast becoming a favourite among the millions of passengers passing through DXB.
Located at Gate B of Terminal 3, Game Space is open 24x7 and offers a variety of packages to travellers. Starting from 30 minutes to unlimited hours daily, the lounge also has F&B offerings and gaming equipment on sale.
“We have had quite a mix bag of customers,” said Julie Donkerque, general manager of Game Space. “There are professional gamers who have come in and we have had children and young adults who bring their parents to play together. It is quite interesting to see the wide range of people from different nationalities using our facility. It is like as if gaming unites people across borders and ages.”
The lounge, which has space for solo and multiplayer gaming consoles, has a family friendly area with suitable games that younger children can play. There is also a 16+ adult section which has different sets of games. The multiplayer areas are equipped with 50-inch screen to provide the most engaging gaming experience.
“Some people play, leave their bags and then take a stroll through the airport before coming back to play some more,” Julie said. “For a lot of families, Game Space is also the perfect way to entertain their kids while they do some shopping.”
Game Space has also hosted world-class players within its premises. Italian player Daniel Madonia dropped by the lounge while returning from Bali after the World Esports championship where he was placed second worldwide. Not only did he enjoy gaming but also posed for a photograph with staff there.
