Hello! First time posting on this site, and all I want to say is thank you all for the work put into documenting arcades all across Canada. The tools provided to search for specific machines and be able to see up-to-date information (and detailed information at that) is absolutely awesome! So thank you all who have put aside the time to document the arcades you've been to on this website. I hope to do the same when I get the time!

Stumbled upon this site when looking for Taiko Machines in Ontario; I'm really out of luck there though, huh. Even the latest Initial D machine we have is 4, and it's all the way in Niagara falls! T_____T

Such is life though I guess...

"Add DDR = More Arcade Visitors"
UPDATE: WE HAVE FOUND THE LAST PUBLIC DDR EXTREME CAB IN LAVAL AFTER COLOSSUS LAVAL PULLED THE CAB! It's at Darkzone Laval in the underground floor of Galeries Laval. We are unsure of the condition at the moment. But hey, we have found it!
I love going to arcades as long as they have DDR or ITG!

Hey guys! Thanks so much for making me aware of eSpot's existence, and that it had Project DIVA Future Tone--it was always my dream to play the game on a proper cab, and today I was able to finally play on one, as well as try out all the other awesome machines there.

I live on Vancouver's North Shore, so CHQ and eSpot are a little out of the way, but since I already go downtown for class, I'll just hop on a Canada Line train or B-Line bus to one of the two once a week after class.

I ran into this site when I was watching some videos from FNWeeaboo when he offhandedly mentioned this place for finding machines around you. So yeah, thank you guys so much for keeping a running database on this--I hope I'll be able to make some contributions in the future too!

I just went to Darkzone Laval, They indeed in fact, have a DDR Extreme cabinet. The pads were a bit insensitive, could be raised a bit for playability, but hey, the pads still light up, 3 songs per credit unlike Guzzo with 1 song per credit. Hopefully LABcrab can be aware of this place.

Its been a while since i posted here.

StepManiaX first, Centre D'Amusement Familiale 4 Saisons in Sherbrooke has a StepManiaX if anyone is looking for a public SMX cab.

DDR, i still maintain the one found at Party Zone 51 and is currently running DDR 6th Mix, i plan to swap it for 7th Mix once the owner of the place gives me the green light to swap mixes and will remain a 7th Mix throughout summer.
Prior to 6th Mix it ran Disney's Rave and Extreme Pro Clarity.

I haven't kept up with Pump it Up in a while but according to everyone in the thread, Arkad Amusement in Montreal has a LX cab with XX, hopefully by the end of the year they end up upgrading to Phoenix since XX online connectivity will be going away in December.

Carie Factory i think still has their TX cabinet running Fiesta EX if you're looking for an older PIU mix for those that wants to play content that was removed after the Prime era.

ITG, its been popping up again at a few places, i don't know if Laser Force down in Drummondville still has theirs but if they still have it, i know pictures of the cabinet showed a La Récréathèque sticker on the side, perhaps its the one that was at Les Galeries de la Capitale before La Récréathèque closed down there.

MontVR recently posted a video on their Facebook showing their ITG2 dedi being played by a father and son, the cabinet is definitely modded as the ITG3 theme is running on it. I think the dedi is at the Trois-Rivières location.

Village Vacances Valcartier does have an arcade, i know at one point on videos and pictures you could see the DDR X that was at Galeries de la Capitale but if anyone is nostalgic for the Indy 500 Deluxe that was at Galeries de la Capitale, its now at Village Vacances Valcartier.

Do you know if it’s online connected or not?

Updates: The DDR Extreme cab at TAG E-Karting & Amusement has been sadly replaced by the Betson DDR X2 crapocab, which means you'd have to go to Darkzone Laval if you want to play on better pads or want to play EXTREME. A lot of people are gonna be pissed about this.

It could be worse. The X2 at Funhaven in Ottawa was modified so the Player 2 dance stage also functions as the menu keys for Player 2. Basically makes it impossible to play doubles or on P2 without it jankily adjusting the scroll speed.

CHQ in Burnaby has one of the older black cabs running A20+ but when I tried playing yesterday as P1 it was miserable--the right panel kept missing my inputs unless I stomped so hard I felt pain in my foot. And this was after they supposedly fixed it too.

Sucks, because otherwise CHQ would undoubtedly be Vancouver's one-stop shop for all of the foot-based rhythm games. It has an ITG2 machine running StepMania 5.1 and a PIU XX machine kept in fantastic condition by a group of high-level players--and all of them for the reduced price of $1 per player, too. eSpot has a newer white DDR cab in much better condition, but it's $2 if you're not using Petals.

These issues are peanuts compared to how you guys have it though--what y'all're describing sounds horrifying LMAO

(this is a months-later post that got appended to the last one)
CHQ is hosting a first-of-its-kind tournament in Richmond! It'll be from the 22nd to the 23rd, and the tournaments will be for Chunithm Paradise Lost, Wacca Reverse, and Pump It Up Phoenix.

There'll also be a vendor hall with exclusive merch, and a free play arcade at the venue.

You can sign up or buy spectator passes here, or watch the livestream when the tourney happens here or here.

I've entered into the Chunithm tournament, so hopefully I'll be seeing you then!

I've just added and populated a page for Montreal Pinball Arcade.
They have a DDR SuperNova cabinet with an aftermarket Insignia TV added on.
Their pinball machines are all in excellent condition, as are the other cabinets.

In Regina, Sk. a small arcade has A20PLUS, essentially, on freeplay. they do switch ups on mixes every so often as well (4thMIX PLUS last i seen) The hours at that arcade are very limited tho.
there is also an ITG2 dedi cab at the small theater in the Golden mile.
there's also a PIU XX at a ballers rec room but the owners seemed to have put the audio super low for whatever reason.
