Toronto's favourite destination for all things entertainment is coming to Barrie, Ontario. Cineplex made the announcement this morning, saying that the new Rec Room will take up 32,000 square feet of prime real estate at Park Place in the heart of Barrie.
They also announced what's to come for the new location, which includes a massive attractions area with over 100 amusement games, six bowling lanes, and rows of ping pong, air hockey and pool tables.
There's also going to be an entire virtual reality gaming section, a massive stage setup and performance space, as well as a huge bar and restaurant with endless menu options.
The Rec Room in Barrie will be the fourth location to open in Ontario and will attract thousands of locals from surrounding areas. It'll be located at the north-east corner of the Park Place shopping centre.
The first phase of construction is set to begin in spring 2019, with a targeted opening in the summer of 2020. Sadly, Barrie has a while to wait - but from the sounds of it, the wait will be more than worth it.
