1/2-3/4 of the machines are broken. Staff are embarrassed of the poor conditions. Shows in the the terrible cleanliness. Manager was not present to speak to. Bathrooms smells like raw sewage is brewing in the pipes. Save your money as it's a very poorly managed and maintained venue for kids. If I could score a zero I would, 1 star... More

Retro Planet has been going downhill for years, it is a miracle that it has not closed!! Just look at the cleanliness of their washroom! The staff used to be wonderful and so helpful. But, unfortuneatly things have changed. We never see any adult management anymore and we are not comfortable leaving our kids there. On our last visit, the... More

We took 6 kids + 2 adults there yesterday for Lazer tag and it wasn't a great experience.. $10 for 12 minutes of play PER PERSON (no group rates, no prices breaks)... however, their equipment had no problem breaking down. Old and worn out, broken equipment, arcade games were out of order or just didn't work... the one lady that... More

Went with friends for the $20 Thursday special. You get unlimited laser tag & mini-golf, plus access to about 1/3 of the arcade games without requiring tokens. Mini-golf is only 9 holes and pretty forgettable. Laser tag is ok, but there are better places. Their selection of arcade machines is pretty good though. Even without playing the token machines they... More

With the special that was ongoing with a one price for all day play, the value was very good. The children had a blast with the lazer tag, mini putt and video games. The "older" children had fun as well reliving some of their youth as well.
