La Tête dans les Nuages is an old-fashioned video arcade and party center where you and your entire family can have a blast all day long, whether it's dancing, bowling, riding a mechanical bull, or actually blasting aliens from the sky.

This games room in the heart of downtown Paris, just steps away from the city's museums and art galleries, spans over 1,500 square meters and has around 130 attractions at any given time. Some are permanent and others rotate in and out. Paris may be known for sidewalk cafes and historic landmarks, but this is a space that's dedicated to the oldest of pastimes: playing games.
