We used the party room for a meeting, all business persons. Then time for some adult bonding to let off steam. Food was surprisingly great. Service superior. And fun. Laser tag for adults, still as fun as it was when you where a kid.

A few of the games didn't work properly. The food was greasy and very basic. A few machines took coins, but didn't actually work. Some of the tickets were getting jammed which frustrated my children.

A LOT of games out of order. Next time I'll check around before buying so many tokens. Ordered food which was good but took a long time to get someone from the back to take our order. Staff were helpful when machines out of tickets, prizes ok.

The staff was great, we only saw one staff member the whole time, besides the staff in the restaurant, and she was really great and fun. The prices were a little higher than I expected to pay, especially the food, $2.50 for a glass of milk..., oh well at least my son's meal was free. Even still, we went to... More

We had taken the kids here a few times when it first opened. They liked it, the food was good, but we haven't been back in several years. What happened??? The restaurant is gone, in its place is a "diner" that doesn't offer a single healthy food item for the children it's supposed to be marketing to. When I asked... More

When RP first opened it was fantastic fun! They had a great sit down restaurant, with excellent food and fun themed booths. The games were fun for kids and adults alike and there was a little bar section in the back where you and your friends could go later at night and hang out. Now the 40% of the games... More

My parents were in town and wanted to do something fun for a few hours with the kids. We didn't want to take the time to drive down to Toronto and back and just couldn't come up with something fun to do. In the end we just sort of halfheartedly settled on Retro Planet. What a blast. Our group have... More

Good place for a children's birthday party. One stop shop for the party. A wee bit pricey but the kids always have fun. Parents should make sure to play the laser tag with the kids.

surely you can do better for a kid's party? for an adults party look elsewhere. The food is mediocre and there are better places within a 30 minute drive.
