Rufus and Bee has always been on the list of places to visit. After my exams, I wanted to go out but I did not want to go to a restaurant, I was leaning towards something adventurous , after reading about Rufus and Bee, I started planning a visit with some of my friends.
Rufus and Bee is an arcade game center which also boasts of a bowling club and a sports bar. I was primarily going there for the games and I knew it would be more fun going with some friends. I must confess that planning with others might be a chore because everyone has different schedules. However, I will recommend going to Rufus and bee with your friend(s).
Rufus and Bee is located at TwinWaters, Okunde Bluewaters scheme off, Remi Olowude St, Eti-Osa, Lekki, Lagos, Nigeria. Check out their opening and closing times below
I already made inquiries about the price, I was well aware of the amount I was going to pay. Here is how it works, you will have to purchase a buzzz card of ₦1000 but if you already own one, you do not need to purchase another one, it is reusable. Then you load a certain amount of chips on it, my friend and I loaded 115 chips on it, it costs us ₦10500 (it is originally ₦10000 plus 5% VAT), my other friends also shared a buzzz card and loaded 84 chips on it. My friend and I originally planned to load 115 chips but we contemplated changing it to the 84 chips. We settled for 115 chips because we wanted to maximize our visit there. However, at the end of the day, the four of us had fun.
After paying, we got overwhelmed checking out all the games at Rufus and Bee. We did not know where to start, there were so many games. At the beginning, it was hard finding a guide to help us figure things out, we were getting miffed as we kept asking around until we later found an efficient one; Francis that helped made our experience better.
We played about 8 games or more (I lost count after a while), we played some twice. Each game requires a certain number of chips and it varies, 3.5 chips. 5.0 chips, 7.5 chips. 10 chips. Chips used will be deducted from the buzzz card, you will also see your remaining chips. There are individual and team or group names. We played (Down the clowns, Quick drop, Aliens Armageddon, Galaxy collision, Air ride and other games).
After playing some games, you get some tickets based on how well you performed, after which you can load the ticket on your buzzz card through the ticket booth. Then we went to redeem our tickets at the WIN center. We combined our tickets and got candies.
While the bowling club is inside Rufus and Bee, it separate from the games arcade and you have to pay separately for it.
The plan was to leave Rufus and Bee after playing the games but a friend’s friend visited, we decided to visit the bowling club. I have never gone bowling before and was excited to do this for the first time. I had no idea that bowling came with a lot of technicalities. We had to change bowling shoes, there was a screen where our names and scores were displayed. I did not do well at my first bowling attempt and no one told me the ball was going to be that HEAVY. My friend later played in my stead, I think it is a fun game but I might try it later on, if I have my natural nails on.
Bowling is a fun game to play and I think everyone should experience it.
There is a sport bar at Rufus and Bee that you can relax and enjoy meals. We did not buy anything here. I don’t have information about the price.
I enjoyed myself at Rufus and Bee and I am thankful I got to experience it with the people I did. I liked both the individual games and the one you had to play with a partner. It was beautiful seeing people of various ages having fun. If you want to let your hair down and have fun, consider Rufus and Bee.
