How are you taking precautions during the COVID19?

At GameTruck, safety is our #1 concern for you, your guests and our employees. All equipment is disinfected before and after each event. Our staff will be wearing masks. All event hosts are asked to ensure that all participants do not present with COVID19 symptoms. It is recommended to hosts that face masks are provided to guests for activities that may interfere with social distancing. During the COVID outbreak, there is a 50% occupancy inside the Video Game Trailer = 15 guests max. Our Carbon air filter will be running inside all GameTruck video game theater events. Please contact us for any questions/further details.

Do you provide invitations or an e-vite system?

Yes! With your scheduled event you are given access to PartyLink which is your own unique online event management website. You can send GameTruck e-vites to your guests through your PartyLink site. If you prefer mailable invitations, paper invitations can be provided upon request or you can print your own from our PartyLink site.

Video Game FAQs

Is there an age limit?

Our 9+ years in business has taught us GameTruck is appropriate for ages 6 and older. Children younger than 6 need to be accompanied by a guardian to be in the GameTruck. We will consider doing parties for younger ages if the customer agrees to limit the number of participants to 12 kids or less.

How much space do you need?

The truck/trailer is approximately 52' long. We ask our customers to reserve 60' of space to give us plenty of room if we have to parallel park. Our policy is to always park in the street. As a safety precaution, we may not park in driveways... however if we do park on private property a parking damage waiver may need to be signed. Private parking is at the discretion of the GameTruck.

Can you come to parks?

Yes, we do many events at parks but each city is different in their willingness to allow us into their parking lots. For large city or regional parks where you want us to be in their parking lot, you should contact the town parks department and clear everything with them first. Often times they will require you to have a permit and will want to be named on our insurance. Smaller community or neighborhood parks where we'll be parking on a public street that runs adjacent to the park does not require you to contact the town first. As long as you can reserve us 60' of parking on the street we're good to go! The town/city may require a Certificate of Insurance which we can certainly attain for you.

What consoles do you have? Do we choose games ahead of time?

GameTruck features 16 screens with the best top games for Nintendo Switch, XBOX ONE, PlayStation 4, XBOX 360, Wii U and the Wii. We will bring our entire game library and have games suitable for all ages. The customer has control of the games made available for the kids. While you cannot choose specific games ahead of time, you are able to choose the game maturity before the event. Our GameCoach will contact you when they are on the way to your event to get that information. We do have a Virtual Reality upgrade available as well!

Do you allow food and drinks inside the GameTruck?

We ask that all food and drinks remain outside of the GameTruck. Pizza grease and game controllers don’t mix! Exceptions are made for bottled water.

Do parents need to supervise?

We require that one responsible adult remains at the event for its duration, but need not supervise the event. Parents are more than welcome to be inside the GameTruck during the event but not required. Each GameTruck event is hosted by professionally trained and background screened GameCoaches who will ensure the success of each event. GameCoaches always do their best to involve everyone, regardless of their skill level. However your most important supervision is to take pictures!

Do you need to plug into an electrical outlet?

We are self-powered with quiet running commercial generators. We do not need to plug into your home.

How many players can fit in the GameTruck?

To insure safety, manageability of the event, and comfort of the participants, we suggest up to 24 inside the trailer as an optimal number. We can have up to 24 players playing at the same time. (During the Covid outbreak, the max amount of participants on the trailer is 15 due to state guidelines).

Do the trailers have air conditioning and heat?

Absolutely! All our GameTrucks have air conditioning units and heat for the cold winters.

What if I am having a small event?

Perfect, Check out our Gameplex program which we bring the video games to you! You customize how many consoles you want. With the Gameplex everyone plays at the same time.

Do you offer Fortnite/Among Us game?

We sure do! This single player per screen game requires internet access. On the GameTruck, guests can play Fortnite on the Nintendo Switches. We will need to lay a 200' Ethernet cable from your router into the GameTruck trailer to provide the fastest game play. If you are having your event at a commercial venue/partner location, please check with them about internet availability before the event.

LaserTag FAQs

Is there an age limit?

We have found that players 7 years or older have the best experience, they can follow directions, work in teams, and think strategically and they are strong enough to hold the taggers without getting tired.

How much space do you need?

We can make many spaces work, but the ideal space is about the size of a single tennis court. At the minimum, half a basketball court is required. If you have that much space (and even a small backyard is usually bigger than a tennis court) we can make a fun laser tag arena with our barriers. We also setup LaserTag inside if you have a large basement. Check out our Partner List if you need a place to do LaserTag:

Can you come to parks?

Absolutely. We prefer to setup on grass, and we need enough space (about a tennis court in size) for the kids to play and have fun.

The town/city may require a certificate of insurance which we can attain for you.

Parents are always welcome to watch, but our two GameCoaches will supervise the event the entire time.
