What is GameVan?
GameVan is a trailer converted into a high tech gaming theater which we bring right to your doorstep! With 3 interior and two exterior (weather allowing) flat-screen LCD and LED HD televisions and a choice of gaming consoles, GameVan comfortably seats 10 gamers and allows for between 12 and 20 gamers to play together. It all amounts to a whole lot of hi-tech fun!
How much space do I need?
The GameVan trailer is 6m long and just over 2m wide. It requires a reasonably flat surface. GameVan will fit comfortably in most driveways or gardens but in the event you do not have space, consider nearby venues. Party venues, restaurants, sports grounds etc. are all ideal places to hold your GameVan party! If you’re not sure, send us a photo. If we still not sure, we will pop past and have a look.
How will my GameVan function be run?
We will provide a game coach who will run the party and supervise the play within the trailer. Parents can relax and leave it to us. Typically time in the van would be split between free play / practice time and tournament time. Tournaments are simply gaming competitions between the guests. We track scores and provide nominal prizes. However the exact format of your function is up to you. If you simply wish to have the GameVan parked at your venue and open for your guests to use as they please that works! If you would like our game coach to run tournaments and manage the rotation of players through the trailer, we can do that too.
What are your target age groups?
GameVan is a great entertainment option for guests of almost any age. While the primary users of gaming consoles fall in the 7 to 18 age range, many games are played by adults from all walks of life. Our different party themes and options mean everyone can get involved and make GameVan an ideal entertainment option at children and teen parties, 21sts, team building events, and even to keep the kids out of trouble at wedding receptions.
What about the age restrictions?
Many of the popular first person shooter genre are rated games. i.e. they are age restricted. While these are some of the more popular games, we do have a wide range of family games suitable for kids of younger ages. Before any kids party we will confirm with parents which games to make available.
How many players can GameVan cater for?
GameVan has comfortable seating for approximately 10 children or 8 adults depending on size and if weather allows additional players can be accommodated on our external station. However we can cater for larger parties simply by rotating players through the various gaming stations.
How much electricity does GameVan use?
GameVan is fitted with an on-board generator to provide power for the duration of your function. We also have the ability to plug into the venue’s power sources for a quieter experience. TV’s and Consoles today draw relatively low amounts of power and by far the biggest consumer of power in the trailer is the air conditioner. Our trailer has been thoroughly tested plugged into our 6.5kvA generator as well or a single residential power point.
