“Last year was a great success, and we are excited to introduce new features like nostalgic candy, retro movies, and elevated Friday nights with DJs and cocktails.”

Expect themed nights like Flashback Fridays with a DJ and retro bar until 11 PM and weekend screenings of timeless classic flicks.

And what’s an evening of retro fun without treats? Old school candy, popcorn, and crafted cocktails will be available at the concessions on weekends.

To end off the week right, every Sunday there will be a multiplayer Mario Kart knock-out tournament. Those participating can compete for the chance to win a one-night stay at Hotel X Toronto.

The Retro Arcade will be open every day, on Mondays through Thursdays from 9 AM to 10 PM and Fridays to Sundays from 9 AM to 11 PM.

The experience is free for hotel guests with stay, otherwise it is an $18.80 ticket for an all-day pass.

Talk about a blast from the past!
