If you live in Lake Travis, you’ve probably experienced the thrill of Games2U. This mobile entertainment company has forever transformed the event world with on-the-go gaming for kids and adults. Their motto is “We’ll bring out the kid in anyone.” Yep, they nailed it.
Games2U, founded in Austin in 2007, was already seeing a lot of success with their gaming concept when they garnered national attention by appearing on ABC’s Shark Tank in 2011. Brothers and owners Stuart & David Pikoff walked into the tank and pitched their investment deal to entrepreneurial moguls Kevin O’Leary, Jeff Foxworthy, Barbara Corcoran, Daymond John and Robert Herjavec. They went back and fourth, but eventually the brothers declined the offer on the table and continued building the business themselves. I would say they made the right decision.
Today Games2U has over 150 franchises nationwide, but no matter how big they get, they are always dedicated to one thing, F-U-N! And they deliver a lot of fun. If you’ve ever seen the look on a child’s face when the Games2U truck (with the eye-popping gaming van) arrives, you know it is 100% excitement.
The Games2U Games Theater features the hottest video games like Guitar Hero, Madden Football and Minecraft on huge plasma screens in a climate controlled gaming utopia. Now picture all of that plus multi-player game play, surround sound audio, laser light effects and fog machines.
The Pikoff brothers are always adding new gaming experiences to their cool menu of Games2U fun. They have Giant Hamster Balls for kids and adults, so you can roll around running or sitting for some 360 degree thrills. You can play Booger Wars (think dodge ball meets capture-the-flag), only with boogers and giant noses instead of balls and flags. For a robotic adventure, kids can be U:bot where they can actually get inside of a moving robot with a synthesized voice, laser sounds and a fog machine.
Since these games are fun for kids and adults, Games2U works at practically any kind of event like birthday parties, fundraisers, festivals, corporate retreats and more. Games2U has literally made the process as easy as 1-2-3. You can check out their website to figure out what kind of gaming you want, give them a call for availability and pricing and they do the rest. They bring all of that awesomeness to you. Ahh, you gotta love mobile entertainment!
