Hi - does anyone know of an "internet games cafe" in the Tauranga area, where a few of us can play network games together (eg counter-strik source)?
Thanks.

I havent lived in Tauranga for quite a while but there used to be one opposite Tauranga Boys College (next to the liquor store I think, same block as Foodtown) that was quite good.

Funny thing about Google maps is you can use plain word searchs with it.

I put in "internet cafe in tauranga" and got this :

http://maps.google.co.nz/maps?f=q&source=s_q&hl=en&geocode=&q=internet+cafe+in+Tauranga&sll=-37.705553,176.253662&sspn=1.664541,2.741089&ie=UTF8&hq=internet+cafe&hnear=Tauranga&ll=-37.688167,176.166759&spn=0.013007,0.021415&z=15

From gateway's page seems they have moved to 50 Devonport rd.

They do online games apparently too :

Yes - I also found Gateway via google. They only have 7 machines, and you can't book ahead. So I was hoping someone might have some more info about more customer friendly places... ´cause nothing much else comes up through google when using search queries like you mentioned. Maybe that's the only place in Tauranga? (A small city admittedly).

KK You'll have to forgive me as I'm not a FPS gamer (more World of Warcrack) and am also based in Hamiltron.

So I don't really have direct knowledge of them. So far internet searches have only turned up 3 in the Tauranga town centre. You wanted ones in that area right and not Papamoa ?


How about these 2 places :

Hi - thanks for your efforts. Believe me, I also did all the normal internet searches, and also found Cyberzone and Cybersurf. Cyberzone seems to be only listed on the "finda" page - the link to their website does not work, and the telephone number is disconnected. Cybersurf does not actually appear to be a games cafe. It has photos from Mt Maunganui from 2001, a noticeboard from 2006, and no street address or telephone number.

Games places in Papamoa, Mount Maunganui, or Tauranga (or even Te Puke) would be ok.
