Cineplex officially opened The Rec Room entertainment centre at the Amazing Brentwood Mall earlier this month, on July 5th.

After the closure of the iconic Playdium, the Rec Room was anticipated to be a massive hit with 2 dinning options and a huge arcade play yard area. Opening day was met with large crowds and long line-ups and it appears that the popularity remains high.

Long lineups were still present this past weekend, with wait times extending over an hour to enter.

This 19+ entertainment centre was extremely busy inside, even with on-going capacity restrictions.

The line-up from the front door wrapped around the corner, through the “rainbow bridge” and all the way to the mall’s food court.

For those wondering, the Rec Room does live up to the hype.

Some highlights includes: Mario Kart, Atari Pong, and the World’s Largest Pac-Man. They also have two high-tech VRX motion-based car simulators.
