The hot new entertainment option for group events is here: mobile game theatres. Video games have become a central part of our culture, and a primary source of mainstream entertainment. However, the logistics of setting up a fun, friendly gaming environment for large group events is simply not possible for most people. Getting enough TVs or monitors, consoles, games, and controllers is challenging, and then the event planner needs to find space for all of these things. There’s an easier solution now; mobile gaming theatres bring everything to your event in a portable theatre that requires no set up on your part at all. It’s literally just driven to the event, parked, and opened up to guests. Here are some common questions about mobile game theatres, along with their answers. For specific questions, of course, you’ll need to go to a service provider, as their equipment and policies may vary from those listed here.

How much does hiring a game theatre cost?

As might be expected, this is one question with a wide variety of different answers. Prices will vary according the equipment on offer (the number of players it accommodates, the different platforms available, etc.), the length of time you want the theatre to be present for your guests, and your location. Most providers have a regular service area, but many will travel outside of it for an additional fee, if scheduling allows.

What do I need to provide?

Usually, you simply need to provide a suitable area for the mobile theatre to park. Generally speaking the theatre will be a converted tractor trailer. You’ll need firm ground and adequate space for the theatre to enter and leave. The service you hire can give you the exact specifications they require for the space. Most provide their own power via generator, as well.

What does the service provides, other than games?

If the mobile game theatre service is advertised as a strictly video gaming service, don’t expect anything else, like food or other types of games or entertainment. However, many services do partner with other event services, so feel free to inquire if that’s the case.

Do I need to provide supervision for children in the theatre?

Generally speaking, an adult will need to be present to supervise the event. However, strict supervision of every child while playing isn’t necessary. Most mobile game theatre employees are willing to oversee the video game play in the theatre itself without an adult present. However, they will not be amenable to finding they’ve been abandoned to supervise your child’s entire birthday party, with no other adults in sight. Be courteous, and keep in mind their job is to maintain and provide a video gaming experience, not to babysit your partygoers.

Are mobile theatres available for adult events?

Of course! Video games aren’t just for kids any more. A mobile game theatre is a great choice for entertaining at a corporate retreat, a bachelor or bachelorette party, or an adult’s birthday.
