Mobile gaming company a hit at birthdays
Kyle Stevens, 13, along with his mother, Michelle and sister Sabrina, 14, enjoy the 4-D realistic theatre experience included in the Games2U mobile entertainment trailer.
Tired of the same old birthday parties and corporate ‘team building’ events? Bob Stevens just might have the perfect solution. Last week, Stevens officially launched his Games2U franchise.
The Tyrone resident said upon investigating several franchises to invest in, he read an article about the business and became intrigued at the uniqueness of the idea.
“We considered a variety of factors and what it came down to was a business we would really enjoy,” he said.
“It looked like it would be good not just for me but also something my family could participate in.”
Games2U is a mobile entertainment business that caters to a variety of events, said Stevens. They can be booked for birthday parties, corporate events, customer appreciation days, festivals, schools, churches and more.
The mobile van/trailer features a 4-D theater, which includes a 3-D movie with wind, water and tickle effects. There is also laser tag, a foam machine, a giant human hamster ball, UBot—a seven foot tall robot that fits kids and adults who are able to control the movements as well as shoot nerf balls, talk in a robot voice, and make sounds. Also, included are Wii and Xbox video game systems on the van.
“It’s a lot of fun and a lot of hard work,” said Stevens. “We liked it because it was new, unique and exciting. So it’s something people will want to try.”
Though he has just gotten started, Stevens said he is seeing a demand for mobile entertainment and has already booked several birthday parties, church events and community festivals.
Prices depend on what activities the person(s) would like to have as well as the duration of time wanted. He did add the birthday prices are comparable to traditional parties that some might have. As for booking, Stevens said arrangements could be made well in advance or sometimes they are able to take last minute requests.
“I’m looking forward to giving people the ability to enjoy something new and different that they can talk about and say it was a lot of fun,” said Stevens. “Just create really good memories.”
