Celebrating with Gamezstation

Last week we were kindly invited to Gamezstation 6th birthday party. For transparency purposes I haven’t been asked or paid to write anything but we had such a good time I wanted to share our experience.

Gamezstation was started in 2013 by Scott and Kirsty Deighton and is a mobile gaming party. They have two vans, named Mario and Vinnie, and each are kitted out with 12 gaming seats and 6 consoles. Gamezstation takes their gaming vans to locations within a 65 mile radius of Leeds and are perfect for a range of events, including birthday parties, summer fairs and corporate event days. You can hire either one or both vans.

During the birthday party the girls and Little Man got to experience the vans. Little Man loved playing Mario Kart, my youngest daughter played Marvel and my eldest daughter Minecraft. We had other people playing a variety of other games too, which was great that they could all play something different whilst sitting on the same van.

In fact, I struggled to get them out of the van. They loved the choice of games, the comfy gaming seats and the lighting in the van too. All the three of them were enjoying themselves.I decided we should see the rest of the celebrations and so we headed inside. We were greeted with retro consoles, the girls did not seem impressed but I had childhood flashbacks as I played Mario Kart on the SNES.

At the back of the room we met the charity TheRockinR. They are an absolutely fantastic charity. Founded by the father of late games- lover 10 year old Reece who sadly passed away from a brain tumour. The charity bring mobile gaming units to those children and young people who are in hospital or hospices or those who may be immobile or have limited access to activities. It helps to provide some normality in an otherwise difficult situation. 

We took part in the balloon pop raffle which raised over £1000 for TheRockinR and managed to win a controller and some branded clothing. The girls were a little disappointed they didn’t win the signed Leeds Utd shirt, who happen to have a GamesPod in their family stand, but over the moon with the controller win.

It was time for pizza from the catering van and to listen to the speeches with birthday cake. Well you can’t have  a party without the cake. No one wanted to leave, they wanted to play some more games and so that’s exactly what we did staying right until the end of the evening.

Gamezstation could not have been more welcoming and put on a great party. The girls loved the gaming vans and have both now decided that is exactly what they want for their parties next year. I have to agree it was a rather fun evening!
