Game On 2.0 & Wet n Wild

Date: 25th Aug 2019 Author: Richard Smith

The Scouts went to the Centre for Life in Newcastle to see the Game On 2.0 exhibition which had computers and computer games from the 1970s like Pac Man right up to the present day such as fortnight. The centre had computers from every decade with games loaded and ready to play! From Donkey Kong and Super Mario to Wii Sports and arcade favourites like Lets Dance! The Scouts had fun playing all the different games and commented on the rubbish graphics of some of the older games.

Then after dinner they headed to North Shields to spend the afternoon at Wet n Wild Swimming Park on the flumes wave machines and lazy river. Everyone had a fantastic time.

Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
