Very little is known about its history, or when its exact opening and final closing times were, however it must have been open in 1996 because a Sega Rally contest was held there. It was also one of the many Sega Park venues sold on to Leisure Exchange in 2000.
In 2001, Namco Amusement Europe Ltd. purchased Strykers Bowl. With this, the Sega Park arcade was bought out as well and rebranded under the company's in-house brand Namco Station. Although the venue remains under Bandai Namco ownership, it rebranded under the mainstream Namco Funscape brand at the end of 2014, and the arcade no longer has a unique name.
The arcade occupied the upper floor of the bowling centre. Little is known about the layout or the games offered, One night a week, the machines would be set to freeplay and an entry fee was charged at the door.
Later on, the arcade moved downstairs into a smaller area, and shortly afterward was renamed Sega Park.
