Designed for kids and adults, Games2U's selection of mobile entertainment helps amplify amusement during on-location festivities. On the day of the event, staff members haul your choice of equipment to the designated locale, set up the apparatuses, and strike them when the equipment reaches its bedtime. They park onsite with climate-controlled video-game theaters—stretch vans that have been outfitted with Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Wii consoles connected to indoor and outdoor plasma screens. Similarly interactive, their 4-D-ride experience stages realistic adventures inside a capsule with six seats that shift in response to the action on the screen. Like a bird flying toward an open window, the staff occasionally disregards screens while supplying equipment for outdoor laser tag and rolls out human-size hamster balls and a 7-foot-tall U:bot machine, which kids can climb inside and control with a joystick.
