Our Story

Arkadium Retro Arcade was founded to increase awareness of pinball and classic arcade video games in Sherwood Park and the greater Edmonton area. We are locally owned, all of the partners are local collectors who wanted to share our love of the hobby and showcase some of the best pinball and arcade video game machines in the city.

The concept was to recreate the arcades of the past and provide an all ages and affordable entertainment centre to the public. The machine do not require coins, all of our machines are on free play all for one low paid admission price. You will get the opportunity to enter the facility and play all you want or re-enter the facility that day if you wish.

As soon as you walk into the facility you will be able to press start and play a great selection of over 75 pinball and arcade games.

We have a wide range of pinball machine era’s, from manual scoring reels to later electronic scoring models to the latest and greatest LCD models with complex layouts, modern sounds and full video integration. We have so many awesome classic arcade video games that will bring you back to your childhood, and remind you of those days when you visited the neighbourhood arcade. This is a retro arcade experience you won’t want to miss.

We have two levels in the facility, the top party room level can be booked for private events such as birthday parties, stags, receptions, fundraisers, or whatever event you want to put on. For dedicated corporate events we can shut down the entire facility for the night and make it your own companies retro arcade experience.
