Drop kicking good times to doorsteps across Rio Grand Valley, Games2U rolls out a multisensory mobile-gaming experience to adults, kids, or kid-like adults complete with laser lights, fog machines, and booming audio. Each truck contains 5 game consoles, where itchy thumbs can challenge neighbors to ping-pong battles on Wii Sports or attempt to climb "Stairway to Heaven" for the 18th time via Guitar Hero. Birthday parties of up to 20 kids can train for the day they'll get to drive the nation's banana-peel-strewn roadways with Mario Kart Wii, and corporate-retreat participants bored with typical team-building exercises can pwn their supervisors at Call of Duty. Though not covered by this Groupon, booked parties may choose to add on outdoor laser tag or giant hamster balls.
Boasting professional actors and method maniacs, Fright Night doles out fabulous frights and shriek-inducing smells alongside fear-raising animatronics. The 10,000-square-foot space houses ghoulish scenes that can be occasionally spattery, which makes this scare-sperience more suitable for children with a modest level of bravery. Between Fright Night and its spine-tickling cousin, Twisted Chaos, this haunt-jaunt is sure to shake a few boots, shutter a few shoulders, and at the very least, stir up a few shrieking falsetto solos. Both seasonal spots are open Thursday–Sunday from 7 p.m. through the late-evening howling hours.
Ear-splitting shrieks quicken the pulses of passersby as they approach the Nightmare Factory, a forsaken complex comprised of two distinct, hair-raising attractions. Once they’ve crossed the threshold into the blood-splattered corridors of Insanity51, voyagers tiptoe cautiously past hostile denizens as a narrative begins to emerge. The tormented spirits that haunt these hallways are insane captives subjected to top-secret government experiments that have rendered them even more fearsome and better informed on tax policy. In Nightmare 3D, foolhardy explorers walk through a carnival funhouse that looks more like the scene of a mass murder. Distorted mirrors and shifting floorboards create a skewed, sinister sense of reality, forcing guests to ponder if they have passed into another dimension populated by their worst nightmares.
