Take a selfie in front of the colourful cereal wall before sampling a bowl for yourself. They’ll have more than 30 famous flavours from all over the world that you can mix and match in a double-scoop combo.

Top it off with some milk and you’re good to go (but unlike in the ’90s, there will be non-dairy milk options that aren’t just soy). If your sweet tooth still isn’t satisfied, they will also be dishing out milkshakes, fairy bread and pop-tarts, as well as a few other gems.

And what kind of ’90s party would it be without the music? They’ll be blasting out iconic tracks all day long from the massive boom box.

To keep you busy, the walls will be lined with free-to-play classic video games including Street Fighter, Daytona and Mario Kart. Ditch the PS4 and try your hand at video games the old-fashioned way – jiggle a joystick, press a few buttons, and don’t let those ghosts catch you.

The Throwback Lounge is looking like it’ll be quite popular, so if you want to skip the line, they’re selling $20 VIP tickets that also give you a credit towards food once you’re inside.
