Video games are like life: a bewildering maze filled with challenges, where the only way to get ahead is to have your pet dinosaur eat the boss. Take a break from reality with today's Groupon: for $4, you get two hours of unlimited games (an $8 value) and one can of pop (a $1.25 value) at Wonderland Entertainment Centre (a $9.25 total value).
With 5,000 square feet and more than 60 varieties of classic and modern arcade games, Wonderland Entertainment Centre lures players of all ages to steer, toss, and shoot on coin-free devices. With two hours of unlimited play, revellers wander the expansive floor and stop to trawl virtual fish, ski electronic slopes, or compare accrued lives with opposing cats. Pinball machines roar the sound of victory alongside touch screens of texas hold 'em, and ski-ball games host two-player shooting bouts nearby. For a jaunt into the past, players try the Ultracade, a single unit that allow users to search 1,315 arcade relics for nearly forgotten favourites and finally save impatient princesses. Today's deal includes a can of pop to slake thirsts between moonwalks on digital dance floors.
Wonderland Entertainment Centre
Flashing lights and whirring sounds fill the 5,000-square-foot arcade floor at Wonderland Entertainment Centre, setting a whimsical background as guests engage in classic gaming staples. The facility eschews traditional coin or token based arcade play, instead using an hourly, all-you-can-play rate. A retro arcade experience, including early favorites, driving, and dancing games await thumbs and feet. For a more classic mode of recreation, players can flaunt their cue skills on one of three pool tables, shoot skeeball, basketball, or even "Silver Ball" pinball.
