Video Game Party with Virtual Reality

Rolling Game Station has added on some new systems recently and we want to brag about them a little as well as tell you some of our rules that go along with them.

Nintendo has recently released the Switch to replace the Wii U and it is a really fun system to play! They have only released a few games so far that are multi player so, please bear with us while we all await new releases for the system!  The Switch is a GREAT addition to your video game party!

Play Station has released the PSVR headset for Virtual Reality Gaming and it is a fun addition to the video game party. Rolling Game Station purchased the VR headset when they first came out but we have been waiting to install it in the theater. We had a few concerns with the system and wanted to see how things progressed before opening this aspect of the gaming world to our guests inside the trailer. We wanted to make sure we had a few games everyone could play not just throw it in the trailer to get your business. We researched it and played with it in the house to make sure we had our concerns worked out.  Our PSVR system will be available to all private parties at no extra cost at this time.  Corporate events, school and/or church and fundraising events will have the option of adding this system on at a later date.

One of our biggest concerns is called Virtual Reality Sickness which is a lot like motion sickness but without the body movement.  Wiki describes Virtual reality sickness as occurring when exposure to a virtual environment causes symptoms that are similar to motion sickness symptoms. The most common symptoms are general discomfort, headache, stomach awareness, nausea, vomiting, pallor, sweating, fatigue, drowsiness, disorientation, and apathy. Other symptoms include postural instability and retching. Virtual reality sickness is different from motion sickness in that it can be caused by the visually-induced perception of self-motion; real self-motion is not needed. It is also different from simulator sickness; non-virtual reality simulator sickness tends to be characterized by oculomotor disturbances, whereas virtual reality sickness tends to be characterized by disorientation.

Another concern we had was movement in the trailer and positioning the VR system so that all the wires will not cause a tripping hazard during the video game party. We decided that the VR system will only be used in the seated position and gamers will not be allowed to stand or remove the headset and/or handle it. The VR system will only be handled by our trained staff to help prevent breakage. We want everyone to have a video game party with Rolling Game Station and enjoy the equipment.

As you know Rolling Game Station wants everyone to have fun and wants your guests to follow a few simple rules:

-VR can only be used by ages 10 and up (no exceptions)
-VR may cause Virtual Reality Sickness.
-Gamers MUST remain seated while using the VR headset. 
-Headset may only be handled by an employee of Rolling Game Station.
-There may not be enough time in a party to allow everyone a chance to use the VR.
-VR is only available during private parties and is not included for use at events/fundraisers.

Looking to have a Minecraft Party? Rolling Game Station will help you with that!

Rolling Game Station has several copies of the amazing game to push your Minecraft Party to the next level!

I can’t say that I personally enjoy playing it but, my kids love it and kids all over the country are just like them! They can’t get enough of the game and they want their birthday to be a Minecraft Party. They watch videos on You Tube to learn more tricks then click pause on the video to give it a try! Do your kids do that? I bet they do!

When kids come in the video game theater for their Minecraft Party with their friends, it’s a whole new ball game for them. They have talked about their builds in school or on the playground but, sometimes, you just have to see it, ya know! They love teaching each other new ways to make things and I have seen kids sit and teach other kids how to play the entire party.

There are all kinds of ways to make a Minecraft party a blast, a Minecraft birthday party cake (check out our Sweet Links HERE), Minecraft party supplies and costumes but, the very best way is to have all the kids playing Minecraft together in Rolling Game Station’s  Video Game Truck .

Want to try it on your own without Rolling Game Station for 20 guests? We strongly suggest you not try it but, if you want to do it anyway:
You will need to rent, borrow or buy at least 4 big screen TVs, 4 Xbox consoles, 4 copies of the game and don’t forget the controllers, you will need 20 of them! Then make sure you get them all connected right and find a place to mount them high enough and out of reach of the kids so they don’t break anything jumping around and poking their fingers into the TV screen. And when the parties over, guess what? Yep, you have to disassemble all the systems and TVs and haul them back to wherever you got them. If you are like the average person, you have 1 TV, 1 console and 2 controllers so all the rest have to come from someplace.  Plan on at least 2-3 hours of set up time before the party to get your self made party ready.

Why is Rolling Game Station the Best Kids Birthday Party Place in Pa?

Rolling Game Station brings the Ultimate in Birthday Party Fun to your location with our limo styled gaming truck!

Tired of the same old bounce party or bowling party? Looking for a new birthday party place for the kids? 

bored kids at party because mom forgot to book rolling game station
Don’t let this be your party

 Yeah we thought so too and decided to bring the games to you with our awesome birthday party idea!  We keep the kids out of the house and in our game truck to keep everyone entertained, rain or shine! From 7 to 70 everyone can play with Rolling Game Station!

Worried about all the little germs the little guys bring into the game truck and leave behind?

no-germs picture

 We thought about that too! After every video game party we take the time to wipe each and every controller that was used or touched with Clorox wipes!  We also wipe down and clean the seats to get the greasy pizza prints off the seats and any germs that were left behind there! If you want to sanitize before and after your party, we also have hand sanitizer available at all times!
  Believe us; we want to be able to play in a clean environment too!

Worried about who the game coaches are that will be at your video game party?  

keep kids safe in a heart

No need to worry!!  If I wouldn’t trust someone with my little girls, I would never trust them with yours so, all of us at Rolling Game Station have our Child Abuse Clearances and back ground checks done to make sure only the best come to your video game party!

Is a Video Game Party with Rolling Game Station expensive?

 We don’t think so; we believe we are right in line with any other birthday party place you might go to!  A bowling alley might promise you a great price at $14-$16 per guest but when you look at it, you and everyone else have to take your party to them, they only provide 1 hour of their 2 hour party having any fun and the guests have to take turns one or two at a time. The other 1 hour of party time is sitting in a bland room with tables waiting for the party to end and mom to pick them up or using up their 20 coins in the video game machines that cost 2-4 tokens a game. Do you really think 20 tokens will last 30-45 minutes? 
Rolling Game Station charges $325 for a 2 hour party and you can have up to 20 guests playing at the same time! We bring the games to you and they play for the entire 2 hours without having to come ask for more tokens!
