Video Game Party with Virtual Reality

Share

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.

Do the questions and answers look like ours?  Did they just change the pictures and the colors? There is a reason for that… when you want people to notice you, you copy the best and Rolling Game Station is THE BEST video game truck in Collegeville, Royersford,  Eagleville, the main line, Morgantown, Downingtown, West Chester, Chads Ford, King of Prussia, Macungie and everywhere in between!

Helpful Tips for Pokemon Go

Share

Ok, So who out there is playing Pokemon Go?? I downloaded it and it is fun to see if you can find all the Pokemon around the area.  I have not gone too deep into it and battled anyone yet but I have used about 150 Pokemon Balls (my aim is not that good apparently) !

Most of you know I am a police officer along with running Rolling Game Station  and I wanted to make sure to pass on some knowledge for you to use. I strongly suggest that you use some caution and make sure you talk to the kids about going out and searching for Pokemon. I cannot tell you how many people I see just blindly walking into the street and wandering around busy parking lots and a few in places they should not have been. I even say a young adult trying to ride his bike while playing. I see a crash in his near future if he continues that. Curfews are established in a lot of towns and there were a LOT of kids we sent home over the last week who were in violation.

Please remember:
YOU MUST keep your awareness up, everyone glued to the screen and not looking around is a recipe for disaster. The phone will vibrate when a Pokemon is close, take a minute to look up every now and then.

pokemon-go-stay-alert- Rolling Game Station

BE CAREFUL about where you go to find your Pokemon, there are bad people out there and they may have lures set up for attracting their victims. Never go onto private property to collect a Pokemon no matter how rare it is!

Pokemon Go Watch where you walk

WORK AS A TEAM while out searching for Pokemon. Go out with friends in search of the elusive creatures. The more the better! A larger group is stronger and safer then being by yourself or in a small group and there are more eyes to look and see danger.

HAVE FUN stop at the gyms and training center and battle your friends and others there.

PokemonGO Rolling Game Station
OBEY the law and keep curfew laws (both family and legal) in mind while searching. We (police) try to be understanding but, we can only be understanding to a point. We don’t want to ruin the kids hunts so make sure they plan searches with enough time to get home. If your an adult… DON’T Drive and hunt and if you get an alert for a nearby Pokemon, use caution and pull over to a safe place to continue the hunt.

Scams and Video Game Parties

Share

I wanted to revisit this post and add some more links for you, the customer to look at before reserving your next party. These 3rd party companies are dangerous to use and we strongly encourage you to do some research before sending anyone your money to reserve a party.  Please be an educated consumer and check before you pay! Rolling Game Station will never, knowingly, do any business with these types of 3rd party booking agencies.

 

Rolling Game Station is aware of numerous websites that offer Video Game Parties in the Philadelphia area and beyond that are not on the up and up with their practices.  These scammers normally use websites with city names in them and do not own or run any video game trucks of their own. They will take your booking and your money (for much more than you would pay Rolling Game Station), then try to find someone to cover your party. When they cannot find someone to cover your party, they will not call you, you just won’t have anyone show up and they will blame someone else for backing out when you call.  You will have to fight them to get your money back and they will try to say it’s this or that companies fault. These companies have targeted several types of businesses in the past including skydiving balloon rides and other thrill sports.

What can you do? 
DON’T BOOK a party with a 3rd party vendor that does not even own a video game truck. Always ask if the company runs their own trucks and if there are any other locations you can see their equipment (Facebook is a great way to find out if a biz is legit as, you will be able to see feedback from other customers).

Check out these links for information about scammers:

This is a really good you tube video from one of our friends down south and really points out the issues with using these 3rd party companies.

Pricing:

Is the company listing their price on their website? If not, be sure that they are not running a legitimate business. The reason they do not post their prices is so they can charge what they feel like when you call them to submit a booking.  Do not pay on the spot while on the phone. Companies looking to get paid right away have issues you should look into. We allow a 7 day window to allow you to research us and to check your own schedules.

ASK QUESTIONS

Ask questions about the businesses location and even who the owner is. If they can’t tell you, don’t book with them! If you google my name you will find a lot of local references linking Rolling Game Station to your community!!)
If you did book with a 3rd party and are having trouble getting your money back, send me an email and we can put you in touch with some agencies that may be able to help you.  Help@RollingGameStation.com

A Video Game Truck is the Ultimate Birthday Party Idea!

Rolling Game Station is the Go To business when you need a video game truck! We had our 1st event on November 6th, 2010 and have been going strong ever since. We look forward to bringing you a FUN party or event.

Rolling Game Station’s game truck has 5 large flat screen TVs attached to 4 Xbox 360s, an Xbox One, 4 Wii and a Wii U with stadium seating that allows up to 20 players to play at one time. We have well over 100 game discs in the trailer to keep everyone gaming and having FUN.

For birthday parties we recommend the following lengths of parties for each age group:

For 7 and 8 year olds, in general we recommend having the video game truck for 1 hour. This is because at this age they have shorter attention spans and are still limited in what games they are able to play.

For 9+ we can recommend having the game truck for 90 minutes (our most popular video game truck party). Once the kids hit 9 years old they have a longer attention span and are able to get into just about all of the games we have on board.

At 11 years old and older they kids just need more time in our video game truck and we suggest a 2 hour party. We always like to leave a party with the kids wanting a little more but, at this age, 90 minutes can just be way too short of a time for them.

We strongly discourage having a video game truck for groups under 6 years old. We understand that your son or daughter may be an awesome gamer but, the majority of kids this age just do not have the hand eye coordination, the attention span or the ability to pick up and learn a game fast enough to make this type of party the best it can be.

If you have any questions at all about the length of time to have a game truck at your party please feel free to send us an email to sales@RollingGameStation.com. We want you to have the “BEST PARTY EVER” and will always look for what is BEST FOR YOUR PARTY!

Birthday Parties with Rolling Game Station are FUN and SAFE!

birthday parties should be fun and safe

At Rolling Game Station we take pride in bringing you FUN and SAFE birthday parties!

We bring the birthday parties to you!  No need to arrange to have all the kids dropped off at some strange place and then have to worry about keeping track of everyone. We bring the party to you and keep everything contained so everyone can stay safe in one area.

Have you ever considered that having your birthday parties at strange locations means there are strange people there too?  We vet our employees and make sure that they have been cleared through the Pennsylvania’s Child Welfare Portal and through criminal background checks. The only people that should be mingling amongst your precious children are people you know and can trust.  At Rolling Game Station we will not send employees out to your home that we would not trust with our own children!  We also think you need to keep birthday parties close to home and you can’t get much closer than the end of your driveway!

When Rolling Game Station comes to your location, the kids stay contained in one area where you can keep an eye on everyone all the time.  There are no little nooks, or rooms to lose them in, they all stay right in our 32’ video game theater where you can see from one end to the other.

Did you know our trailer was designed to pull up to your house so that the front door is on the passenger side and away from traffic? Our trailer is designed to keep guests safe at birthday parties and events. Having the door at the front “V” of the trailer helps prevent anyone from accidentally walking into the street or wandering off.   birthday parties should be fun and safe

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

Share

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 .

Check out our Sweet Links page to find places to make cakes like this!

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.

Minecraft party shoppers
They must be trying to have a Minecraft party WITHOUT Rolling Game Station- Doesn’t look like fun!

That’s a heck of a lot of work when you could just have Rolling Game Station bring it all and leave with it after your Minecraft party is over!

So what are you waiting for?
