“Good place to play”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

I like video games and don't like carrying change for the machines. Playdium allows you to play with re-chargeable cards. We used to have this company in Edmonton but they closed shop. Until I went here for a business activity, I forgot how much fun it was.

Great place to bring family or for the gamer.

“Games, tickets, and whole lotta money”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

As a kid, there was no better arcade than playdium. However, once you realize you are the one paying for it, your marginal enjoyment decreases obviously. The games where you win tickets, to say the least, are the largest cash guzzling machines. Of course at the end of the day you will only come home with a rubber ball and blow up guitar. This is what your moolah goes too.

But, if the kids enjoy it, why not. It may be an issue of cost vs. value. The 'blank #' hours pass, is the bang for your buck, you will enjoy an unlimited amount of game, for a certain price. Otherwise, you can just kiss some of your spare cash away, but, the experience is objective.

“Fun way to kill a couple hours”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

Playdium was a huge arcade with batting cage, mini putt, and go carts. If you want to do anything other than the arcade, go before dark. There was a good variety of games and $30 kept us busy for two hours so value is good. It is quite loud which is to be expected and lots of kids but tons to do for adults too.

“Kid Heaven-”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

I have 2 boys and they would love more than anything to spend their weekends in this arcade mecca.

My son has had a birthday party here, and loved it, it is busy and chaotic but the kids loved it. You use rechargable cards to pay for the games so no need to have a pocket full of tokens or change.

“Nice place for the video game player's”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

Plenty of games to choose from. From riding cars to shooting and everything in between. Good place to take the young ones to. Also you can eat.
