|Game On 2.0 Runs Til September 2nd, 2013 at Ontario Science Centre!|
Ontario Science Centre has always offered fascinating exhibits for the whole family. I remember fondly panning for real gold in the late 1970s or early 80s! Game On 2.0 is Ontario Science Centre’s current interactive videogame exhibit, running until September 2nd, 2013. The exhibit is a real walk down memory lane for some of us parents, and features vintage video games in fully playable condition! Not only are they fully playable, the “arcade” is also arranged in chronological order by release date, and patrons are invited to play the games! No quarters required!

My kids loved my games, but no one was as serious about gaming as my husband! He is fantastic in video games, and his competitive nature really showed through. What I found thrilling about the Game On 2.0 exhibit, was that the video games still endured, were still fun to play, and the music and graphics were still addictive--although many were obsolete.
|Pac-Man Was Still King 30 Years Later!|
What I found particularly amazing, was that the most popular videogames were still lined up—over 30 years later! I could not get near Pac-Man, and a there was a line up behind me for Centipede.

While visiting the Ontario Science Centre, my family also enjoyed the Flight of the Butterflies Imax movie. It was a beautiful film about the migration of the monarch butterfly, and how one man spent a lifetime searching for the monarch butterfly’s winter home. It’s definitely worth seeing!
Check out my past posts about Ontario Science Centre's Beyond Planet Earth exhibit, and an interview with Born to be Wild Imax film director David Lickley.
