Get your gaming thumbs ready for a day at Arcade Club

Arcade Club

Want free run of three floors of gaming glory? Win this prize and you’ll get a day pass to Arcade Club for you and three mates. Here, you’ll find every old school game you remember, plus a load you won’t. There are modern games, a Sega zone, console classics and pinball, along with a bar and snacks to keep you fuelled. It’s a heck of a day. You can’t get there by Mario Kart though – instead, grab the 33 or 34 bus on the Kirkstall Line. They run every 15 minutes and will have you at gaming nirvana in just 20 minutes.

Pit your wits against the oh-so-tricky Escapologist

The Escapologist

Our lucky winner can also grab a trio of buddies and head to the White Rose Centre for the brain-wracking experience that is The Escapologist. Take your pick of four escape rooms, whether you want to try your hand at being Sherlock, take inspiration from a certain boy wizard, follow in the footsteps of Alice in Wonderland or fancy the fireworks of Guy Fawkes. Grab the 3 or 3A on the White Rose Line or the 12 on the Middleton Line, every 10 minutes or so, and you’ll be there in 25 minutes from Leeds city centre.

Bag a bellyful of modern British food

Fancy some fabulous food from an acclaimed, family-run independent gem of a restaurant? Win and you’ll head off to Heaney & Mill in Headingley with £150 to spend on their fare. Chef Tom Rennolds’ accomplished kitchen will delight you with the likes of salt and pepper squid with a sriracha glaze, confit duck leg and hand-stretched pizzas. Leave room for dessert, where the Passionfruit Eton Mess is a squidgy delight. Make your way there on the 1, 6, 19 or 27, all on the Headingley Line. Buses come every couple of minutes and take around 10 to 15 minutes.
