Frequently Asked Questions
Our game theater allows up to 20 players to play comfortably (in “Party Mode”) or 7 additional in “Tournament Mode” inside our climate controlled trailer, but that is a tight fit. Our 3 large outside screens can entertain another 4 players each, weather permitting (no steady rain). This allows up to 39 to play at one time! We can rotate players for large group events so that everybody gets plenty of playing time.
Our incredible game theater allows us to change the floor plan from “Party Mode” to “Tournament Mode” for competitive tournament gameplay. In party mode, our game truck is set up with stadium-style tiered bench seating and 8 comfortable and luxurious gamer chairs. This allows up to 20 to sit and play at once. This is great for birthday parties with younger kids in attendance. In “Tournament Mode” we activate 7 additional 24″ tvs for competitive or personal single-player games. Each chair has its own private screen that swivels directly in front of the player, along with a private headset and its own gaming console. This allows the ultimate concentration for head-to-head tournament gaming. (Tournament Mode adds a $99 surcharge to any event.) Read more about our Tournament Mode here.
While people can start gaming at a very young age, we ask that our attendees be able to take direction from our Game Coach. We can provide a party for 6 yr old guests as long as there are parents or older siblings helping inside the theater during the party, otherwise we recommend video game parties for kids 8 yrs old and up.
While parents or others are always welcome to observe or participate in the fun, it is normally not necessary, however we do ask that at least one adult/host be present to help supervise younger kids. Every Next Level Gaming event includes one of our highly trained Game Coaches who will run the event for you.
We do and we have a strong recommendation if your gamers are Roblox fans. Get tournament mode! The main reason is because Roblox is a game which allows only one player on a screen. This means the whole ‘party’ tv will be monopolized by the single player on the game. In tournament mode, many Roblox players can enjoy personal screens, and the larger ‘party’ screens can be enjoyed by multiplayer games. This doesn’t apply so much if there are less than about 8 kids or so.
Short answer. Yes.
Longer answer. Yes, BUT. While we do carry onboard internet, it is usually less capable than home internet and we are allotted only a certain amount of data per month from our provider. We strongly prefer to connect by ethernet to a home router (we bring a 100′ cable) which will improve the gaming experience for online gamers.
