In addition to a small dedicated parking lot we share with our neighbors and plentiful street parking, the free 1201 Alston Ave (Magnolia Green) Garage is conveniently located less than a block from Free Play Ft. Worth. There are also pay lots in the vicinity if that’s your jam.


Free Play Ft. Worth has approximately 10,000 sq. ft. of patios on the property including a large (and storied) rooftop deck. Admission is not required to enjoy the patio features at Free Play Ft. Worth and you may purchase food and drinks from either the front door bar or the rooftop bar. (Although we recommend enjoying the patio features along with a round of amazingly authentic retro arcade games.)

kid rules

We’re on a mission to save the arcade and bring real-deal, authentic games to everyone! Still, guests under 13 must be accompanied by an adult (and supervised to the extent necessary to ensure common courtesy to the facilities, other patrons, and similar). And though we cannot require it, we’d suggest taking this amazing opportunity to create lasting memories with your kids by sharing the games and playing alongside them during your visit! Additionally, from Sunday through Thursday, you must be 18 or older to remain in Free Play after 9:00 PM. On Friday and Saturday, you must be 21 or older to remain in Free Play after 9:00 PM. Not only does that help balance the crowd, it’s the law!
