- $20 for one entry to the Pumpkin Palooza festival and 5K costume run on Saturday, October 26 (up to a $40 value)
At the Pumpkin Palooza festival and 5K race presented by Mobile GameDen, participants suit up in creative costumes before embarking on a fun run or spirited walk. At the post-race party, a live DJ blasts tunes while runners dance or make the rounds at candy stations. Participants receive a mini-pumpkin of their own to either paint or chuck.
What do you get when you take the newest gaming consoles, 55-inch televisions, classic games, and load them all up inside a giant truck? That's what Jason and Wendy Brines decided to find out when they founded Mobile GameDen in 2011. Unlike traditional arcades, Mobile GameDen brings the excitement straight to customers' doorsteps. Their gaming truck can fit up to 24 players inside, but the fun doesn't stop there. They can also bring games of laser tag and archery tag (a combination of paintball and archery) to inspire even more competition. They even offer rides in a 10-foot human hamster ball that sends guests spinning.
Now Mobile GameDen has expanded its gaming reach by organizing events that extend beyond the virtual fun zone. In 2013, its inaugural Pumpkin Palooza festival in Sedgwick County Park includes costume contests, pumpkin chunkin and painting, candy stations, and a live DJ.
