Here You Go!
Our Video Game List consists only of multi-player games and is constantly changing, be sure to check back often.
If you have a game you would like to play on the theater that is not on our video game list, please feel free to bring it!
Here is how to view the photos and video from your event…After your event has happened I will upload all the pictures and video to Flickr a photo hosting service. Once they are uploaded you will receive a link via email to view them. The link will remain active for 30 days. The video and photos are private and cannot be viewed without the link. You are welcome to share the link with anyone you want.
Everyone hates it when it rains on their parade, us included. Even though we live in the Sunshine State, rain sometimes is a problem, but we do offer some solutions.
Our Energized Games Theater is a fully enclosed, insulated, climate controlled environment and can handle most of the Florida weather. We have Air Conditioning to keep you cool and also have an awning that pulls out and covers the two outside TV’s so you can still have fun on those rainy or very sunny hot days. In the event of high winds or heavy rain the use of the outside theater will have to be discontinued. The Bumper balls can be operated under wet conditions but the occupants may get a bit muddy. They can also be operated indoors with enough open space. Laser tag and sumo cannot be operated in the rain but they can be brought indoors or under cover if possible. Many Florida showers just pass through after a few minutes and we will resume the fun after they pass. If you are worried about your event and bad weather seems imminent, you can always call us and reschedule the event as long as you do so before we commit to our departure to you location.
What time should I make the party and how should I organize the party flow??
Most people serve food at their party. We suggest that you tell your guests that the party starts at least a half-hour before our arrival time and tell them food will be served promptly at the start— that gives everyone an incentive to arrive on time and also everyone will have eaten before we get there. Most kids do not want to stop to eat once we get started.
At the beginning of the event we will take a few group photos of all the guests, introduce ourselves and then go through all the rules. The group photos will start and end the sideshow we play at the end of the event and they can be also turned into thank you cards so, everyone will want to be included in the action. Also if all the guests are present, at start time, they will not miss any of the rules and the party will begin with maximum energy. If the The Happy Birthday Song Ceremony is to be included, it should be held directly after everyone disembarks the theater as they will be all fired up from viewing the sideshow and ready for the birthday party celebration.
Events held during the sunset hours and later have the added advantage of being able to use the XBOX Connect System which is mounted on our outside theater. The intensity of the sun prevents its operation during the day. Also remember all public parks close at dusk. Here is a link for sunrise and sunset times in our area.
We require about 60 feet of fairly level space for parking, the space of 4 cars parked bumper to bumper, plus some room to pull in and out. The Energized Games Truck and Trailer should fit in front of almost any house. In parking lots we take up between 7-8 parking spaces horizontally. The ability to pull straight into curbside parking is preferred as parallel parking a 38 foot trailer is not realistic. Every event I will look at Google Maps to get an aerial view of your layout, however If you think parking is going to be an issue please bring it to my attention as extra Game Truck maneuvering takes valuable time.
If parking in front of your home is impossible, you can still hold your event at a local Park, church or even a friend or relatives home.
No. Energized Games events are not taxed by the State of Florida because we provide a service to you. You are NOT renting our equipment you are paying for us to provide you with entertainment for your event. The prices listed are the total price you pay (plus tip if you so desire, or additional fuel/travel costs if required).
If you can’t have the event at your house there are still options. We have done many events at community clubhouses, parks and even parking lots of restaurants and churches. Many parks rent Pavilions for your event that have plenty of room for your guests and the theater, including all the additional attractions we offer. Some Parks even come with their own barriers (trees & bushes) for a laser tag event. We are a Palm Beach and Broward County preferred vendor and have all the insurance credentials to go to any public park that will allow our size of vehicle. Just inform them about us when you make the reservation. Here is a link to Palm Beach and Broward County Parks to help you find one suited for your needs. As for the clubhouse, restaurant or church… just contact them and get permission beforehand. Most will be very receptive to your request.
Sorry, but due to the sensitive nature of the electronics inside the Game Truck, we do not allow any food or beverages inside.
While tipping is never required, it is always appreciated. If you feel the Game Guru did an outstanding job for your event please acknowledge your gratification with a monetary gift.
The Game Guru arrives in plenty of time to be setup and start your party at the designated start time. Normally between 10-20 minutes ahead of time up and to 1 hour or more if inflatable barriers are needed for your event or there are extreme travel distances involved.
While parents or others are always welcome and encouraged to observe or participate in the gaming it is not necessary, however we do ask that at least one adult/host be present to help supervise younger kids. Every Energized Games event includes a Game Guru who will run the event for you. Children too young to follow instruction must be accompanied by an adult.
While people can start gaming at a very young age, we ask that our attendees be able to read some and take direction from the staff. Therefore we recommend parties for kids 6 years old and up.
The dimensions of the theater are as follows:
The total length of the theater including the truck is 60 feet. That is about 4 cars bumper to bumper. We do not disconnect the trailer at any time during an event. We are 8.5 feet in width and approximately 12 feet high. We are fully self contained and do not require any power source. We do however, have the capability to plug in to an external power source for indoor events or large events with a shared generator.
