Everyone knows Playdium, which has long been Ontario’s premier destination for arcade gaming and entertainment – but you don’t know Playdium like this!

The massive new Playdium facility (which opened earlier this year) is described as the first reinvented Playdium entertainment complex, emphasizing a new-school vibe with a revolutionary new look and feel that’s 41,000 square feet of pure fun!

It’s the ideal nearby location for hangouts and parties of any kind. Whether you’re planning a birthday party for the kids or an outing with friends or the whole family, you can’t go wrong with a trip to this new Playdium just north of Mississauga, the new go-to hangout spot for fun, food, and parties!

This new location boasts over 100 different arcade games, and they definitely don’t disappoint in terms of variety: You can play anything from classics to action games to racing games and even rollercoaster simulators!

As you’d expect from Playdium, playing games earns you credits that can be traded for prizes, and the process has never been this streamlined (or cool and futuristic). Your credits are tracked on radio-frequency identification (RFID) wristbands that you get when entering the facility. Simply load, tap, play, and win! Lots of cool prizes are up for grabs including board games, plush toys, and even drones and GoPro cameras.

However, the reinvented Playdium experience goes far beyond the arcade games you would find at most Playdiums. There’s so much more to do!

So, what sets this new Playdium facility apart from the rest?

You can play up to eight immersive virtual reality games at the VRcade ATOM Pod. Travel through time to defeat hordes of zombies, challenge your friends to a Wild West-style shootout, and more.

Compete with up to six players in the VRcade Arena. This free-roaming virtual reality environment is perfect for those who like a little competition.

Test your balance 25 feet above the games floor with Playdium’s ropes course, featuring 10 different sky-high obstacles and ending with a 60-foot sky trail across the facility!

Ten pin bowling is also available for up to six players. Who says you have to go to a bowling alley to test your skills or luck at this old-school classic?

This new Playdium would not be complete without a new and revamped menu featuring new and adventurous menu items and the good old classics. Spending so much time gaming and racking up credits is bound to work up an appetite. Reserve your table at Playdium Eatery’s sit-down restaurant or grab a bite at the quick and easy Bites cafe.

The adventurous foodies can look forward to the Dirty South BBQ Pork Nachos (tortilla chips, bbq pulled pork, cheese, shredded lettuce, spiced corn, green onion, Alabama white sauce, BBQ sauce) and Korean Fried Chicken Nachos (tortilla chips, crispy fried chicken, cheese, pickled cucumber, kimchi, green onion, bulgogi, Seoul sauce, garlic aioli); Pork Carnita tacos & bowls, and flavour-packed sandwiches such as Shrimp Po Boy (Cajun fried shrimp, shredded lettuce, tomato, pickled red onion, spicy remoulade).

You’ll also find the classics like chicken wings, classic nachos, pepperoni pizza, cheeseburger, and French fries; there’s a kids menu and some Beyond Meat vegetarian options as well.

Soft serve ice cream is available all year round in fun, great flavours such as Salted Caramel Crunch (vanilla soft serve, salted caramel pretzels, Skor bits, salted caramel sauce, whipped cream), Choco-Loco (vanilla soft serve, chocolate cookie crumble, chocolate cake, whipped cream, maraschino cherry), and The Unicorn (vanilla soft serve, unicorn sugar dust, sour Nerds, whipped cream).

For the grownups in the group who want to sit down and have a drink, the Playdium Eatery and the Bites cafe are also licensed to serve alcohol.

Playdium offers multiple birthday packages to choose from. A trip to Playdium is never-ending fun for any occasion, but it’s especially great for birthday parties! Most birthday packages grant access to one of their exclusive and private party rooms. In some packages, the birthday boy or girl can even spin the prize wheel to win a special gift.

Birthday packages also include discount game tag offers and a variety of great food options. No party is complete without some delicious eats!

Book your party or event at Brampton’s ultimate playground. From birthday parties to team building to school outings, you absolutely need to visit Playdium Brampton, located at the intersection of Steeles Avenue and First Gulf Boulevard near Mississauga, and conveniently located right off the highway.

Not only is Playdium fun and accessible, it’s also super affordable, and there’s lots of options to choose from! Game tags range in price from $10 to $42, and the Fam Jam package offers savings of 10% on three or more $35 packages. You can also get five dollars off VRcade Arena, VRcade Atom Pod’s 3 Game Bundle or the Ropes Course with the purchase of a $15 game tag or greater.

When that next birthday or PA Day rolls around, or for parents that just want to get the kids off the couch for a day, trust Playdium to deliver a day of great games and fun experiences that you can’t get anywhere else!
