Throwback to the Golden Age of Gaming

Saturday, Sept. 22, 2018 from 11 a.m. – 9 p.m., and Sunday, Sept. 23 from 11 a.m. – 7 p.m. Union Station Ticket Concourse

This two-day Free Play event will transport guests back in time for the ultimate arcade rewind. Union Station’s Retrocade Experience will feature over 40 cabinet games from the ’70s, ’80s and ’90s.

Held in the historic Ticket Concourse, the Retrocade Experience will allow visitors to enjoy an eclectic collection of classic arcade games and specialty pinball cabinets including fan favorites Pac Man, Donkey Kong and Street Fighter.

From 5 p.m. – 7 p.m. each day, guests can enter a PAC MAN Tournament with a special prize from My Arcade Gaming awarded to the gamer with the highest score. Twingalaxie's official setting for PAC MAN will be used for this tournament and the entry fee is $5.

In a spin on classic arcade food, ’80s candy and soft drinks will be available as well as nachos, popcorn and namesake churros from popular vendor Mr. Churro and Traxx will offer beer, wine and specialty themed cocktails.

A day-glow Arcade Lounge will allow players to relax between games while they enjoy retro tracks from the house DJ.

Each Retrocade guest will be issued a wristband allowing them access to the arcade space for two consecutive hours of free play each day. Wristbands will be distributed on-site, on a first come, first serve basis. There are no advance reservations. If the RETROCADE reaches max capacity, you may have to wait until gamers exit, to enter.
