Springwise: Although video games and laser tag are a
popular choice for kids’ parties, getting the kids to venues can be more
hassle than it’s worth. Back in January, Texas-based Games2u
stepped in to solve this problem with its mobile video game
theatres—self-powered, climate controlled trailers that house X-Box 360,
Wii and PS3 systems, enabling up to 24 players to compete head-to-head.
For parents who’d rather see their children running around outdoors,
the company’s Sprinter trailers contain a range of inflatable bunkers
and laser guns to turn yards and fields into laser tag battlegrounds in
Thanks to its installation of multiple 50-inch flatscreen HDTV displays
and surround sound, the trailer provides customers with a much more
immersive gaming experience than they could create in their own homes.
Each mobile theatre is accompanied by a trained Game Coach who oversees
the event and keep players engaged, allowing parents to sit back and
relax. Parties start at USD 199 for one hour, USD 299 for two hours and
USD 99 for every additional hour.
