The days of having an average, run-of-the-mill birthday party are over for Central Florida kids. Games2U, a mobile video game theater, is rolling into town and is poised to fill a major void in the multi-billion dollar party segment.
Looking for a way to combine their entrepreneurial skills with their passion for having fun, Leonard Filipkowski is launching a Games2U franchise in Lakeland, which mixes two of the most popular entertainment segments for kids – video games and laser tag – into one vehicle that’s delivered to the door step of the party child.
“Kids are tired of going to a bowling alley or roller skating for their birthdays,” said Filipkowski. “We are offering everyone the chance to have a ‘rock star’ birthday party at an affordable price.”
Each party vehicle features multiple flat screens inside and outside; with the top games for video game systems like XBox 360 and Wii systems, among others and lets 20 gamers play at one time. High tech Laser tag guns function in daylight or dark, and can be set up in front or backyards or in neighborhood parks. Games2U party participants can also roll around in a giant Hamsterball or shoot customized air cannons.
Additionally, highly-trained game coaches oversee the entire experience and personally manage each Games2U Mobile Video Game Theater throughout the entire event, allowing parents and event coordinators the chance to relax and enjoy the party.
Founded in 2007 by brothers David and Stuart Pikoff, Games2U has quickly become the hottest party scene, especially among boys ages 7 to 14.
“We know we are succeeding when our follow-up surveys include responses like, `My son said this was the best birthday party in the world,” David Pikoff said.
Although birthday parties are the most commonly booked event for Games2U franchisees, owners also book plenty of school, church and corporate functions.
The Games2U of Lakeland, which features the Sprinter Van, serves residents from throughout the Central Florida area. To book events, log on to www.floridagames2u.com and click “Book a Party.”
