Video games are like life: a bewildering maze filled with challenges, where the only way to get ahead is to have your pet dinosaur eat the boss. Take a break from reality with this Groupon.
$149 for a Two-Hour Mobile Video-Game Party for Up to 20 People ($299 Value)
A climate-controlled gaming bus with space for up to 20 players pulls up to clients’ doorsteps for two hours of digital enjoyment. Five high-definition plasma televisions line the walls opposite a long leather sofa, each screen hooked up to a Wii or Xbox 360. More than 300 game titles are on tap, including popular titles such as Super Mario Galaxy 2, Rock Band 3, and Call of Duty: Black Ops. A gaming concierge remains on the scene for the entire party, helping guests load games and shoveling coal into the bus’s onboard generator.
Street Gamz’s mobile fun vehicles roar up to parties and events with a full complement of activities in tow, be it video gaming, laser tag, or trapping the host in a giant inflatable Zorb ball. Up to 20 guests pile onto the couches of the mobile gaming theater, clashing controllers in front of high-definition screens hooked up to Wiis and Xbox 360s. Pixel fatigue can be cured under the hailstorm of light beams that rains down on forces locked in games of laser tag, officiated by a friendly party concierge, or by entering an 11-foot-diamater inflatable Zorb ball, which gives riders the sensation of running inside a hamster ball or being a the mayor of a giant snow globe. Water Blaster Wars cool off summer shindigs with cannons that spray up to 60 feet, and Strike Force’s Velcro vests and balls provide a low-intensity alternative to paintball and dodgeball.
