My Sons Had The Most Memorable Kids’ Party Of The Year! @GameTruckHQ #Giveaway #Ad

*I participated in this campaign on behalf of GameTruck Party. I received a promotional item to facilitate this review and as a thank you item for participating. All opinions are my own. 


    This past summer, I was very interested in throwing both of my boys a celebration to mark the successful end of the school year.  Unfortunately, it’s hard to plan events for them to get excited about because they are too big for kiddie parties.  Nowadays, kids are more interested in technology and video games and these are the activities that keep them engaged.  I had the opportunity to attend an event in July where they hired a GameTruck to keep all the kids entertained and both my husband and I were very impressed.

    GameTruck offers a premier party experience for both children and adults in an interactive, multi-player environment that accommodates 16 or more players.  The truck is self-powered and climate-controlled and is every gamer’s dream come true.  Not only does it have comfortable seating, but it also contains from four to as many as eight flat-screen HDTVs, enhanced sound systems, more than three dozen of the latest multiplayer video games and all the major video game consoles. A Game Coach manages each event, promoting fair, interactive play.


    My husband and I told the boys that we would be a having a GameTruck Party to reward them for getting such great report cards at the end of the year.  They immediately sat down to create a guest list that included some of their friends from school as well as their teammates from sports.  As I called each parent to invite all of the kids, they also became very excited about their kids being able to share such a fun and safe experience.

    The afternoon of our party, all the kids were ecstatic as the GameTruck pulled up in front of our house.  We had some issues initially with parking because the truck itself is very long and we had to ask our neighbor if it would be okay to block his driveway with it.  Luckily, he was fine with it and we were able to park right in front of the house.  Make sure that you take this into consideration when you plan your own GameTruck party.


    We had two great Game Coaches who immediately made all the kids feel comfortable.  Not only were they friendly and knowledgeable about all the video games and video game consoles, but they also made sure that all of the kids were engaged at all times.  They even allowed my son to hook up his MP3 player to their stereo system so the kids could play their own music.  I loved the fact that all the kids were in the GameTruck where I could supervise all of them at the same time and that they weren’t in my house making a mess that I would have to clean up afterwards.

    Overall, the kids all had a great time and we would definitely do it again.  My only con was that the benches inside the GameTruck were pretty worn.  I’m sure that this is because so many kids spend hours jumping around and playing inside of it.  Thankfully, the kids didn’t even notice because they had a great time.


    Make sure you book your kids’ next party with GameTruck.  Trust me, they will think you are the coolest parent in the whole neighborhood!

  1. What a cool concept! I’d love to use them to have a party for my son to celebrate the end of the semester this year.

  2. This is a truly novel idea for a tween party…what kid wouldn’t get excited? I hope I win! Glamamama

  3. We had a friend have one of these. They thought it was the best ever. And even though it is at your house – the kids aren’t in your house.

  4. Melissa Vera says

    I would love to throw one for my girls because they are older and it hard to find party themes. This would be right up any teenagers alley.

  5. shellypeterson says

    This would be so awesome, my son loves playing video games and he would have such a blast if I won this for him.

  6. WOW! I didn’t even know these things existed, but what a fantastic idea! Convenient, too!

  7. We are lame. Both of my boys have August birthdays, so we always get a bouncy house and pizza for their joint party.

  8. Okay! They need to make this happen in Canada! Look how captivated the boys are in that picture! Amazing.

  9. Yesenia Torres says

    Mis teens love video games! Este sería el parte perfecto para que socialicen con sus compañeros de clase y deportes !

  10. I would love to throw a game truck party because honestly, it is AWESOME! I would want to play as well.

  11. This looks like so much fun. I would have fun if that thing pulled up at my house!

  12. Jennifer Williams says

    I have seen these at some of my race events back home and thought they were such a great idea. My youngest would love to have a game party with his friends, he is my biggest gammer of my two boys.

  13. That is one awesome birthday party. What kid wouldn’t want a game truck for their birthday?

  14. We ran into a Game Truck franchise in Chicago and thought it was a neat idea. We’ve never tried one out, would be a cool experience.

  15. Because my daughter loves playing video games and would have fun sharing this with her cousins

  16. Kristin Hale says

    Wow, doing what they already do, but in the excitement of being mobile with the big screens, my family would love this!

    I never heard of Game Truck but what a great idea. My son would have gone crazy for this when he was younger – maybe even now!

  18. Liz @ A Nut in a Nutshell says

    My son would have geeked out over this. This is clearly a niche worth tapping!

  19. Rebecca Bryant says

    My son would love this after his disaster of a birthday party this would be awesome to have for him to enjoy.

  20. Meagan Bailiff says

    i think this would be really fun for daughter, if they have game options she’d enjoy. But i also have a few other kids in mind that would really enjoy it.

  21. What a terrific idea! It is hard to think of things for older kids especially those that are stuck in the middle of being to old for the kiddie parties and to young for the older teen parties. THis would work perfectily although I know a few adults who would love this also!

  22. My friend’s son would love this~he LOVES video games!

  23. Carmen Nimo Perez says

    I’ve never heard of this, but I’m sure boys would love it. Although, don’t they play enough video games already, maybe an outdoor athletic event would be a better idea? LOL!!!

  24. I haven’t heard of this place. It would be stress free because everything is at one location.

  25. These parties are awesome.. i had a client who built this from scratch and his business is taking off.. it is affordable and convenient .

  26. That looks amazing! I think even my other half would love a party like this (he is such a gamer) x

  27. Wow that’s so interesting. I would never even think of something like this, as I don’t play games or watch TV. Glad to hear a good time was had by all 🙂

  28. What a unique party idea. I bet you are still being called the coolest Mom ever! Look at all their happy and engaged faces. I was all set to enter the giveaway, but they aren’t in my service area. Boo! Come on to Nashville GameTruck. 🙂

    My son loves video games and he would love this. He could invite his friends and they could play different games and have fun

  31. OMG I LOVE Game Truck. Its so much fun. Plus, it keeps the party in one spot without a lot of little people running around. That’s a win when hosting a party for minors.

  32. My son would love to have one of these trucks at his next birthday party! How cool is that. Looks like your family had a blast!

  40. Jocelyn McGaffic says

    I always wanted to do this for my oldest son, but where we used to live the truck wouldn’t fit. Now that I’ve moved and have space for it, he’s an adult and doesn’t live nearby! Maybe I can convince him to visit by renting this for him!

  41. Ann Bacciaglia says

    I love this Game Truck idea. We had a Toy Story party and a Halloween themed party complete with a magician for my kids when they were little.

  42. OMG.. I bet your boys had an awesome party.. I had heard about Party trucks before.. sounds like an awesome time. thanks for sharing and what a fun Giveaway count me in

  43. Oh gosh. Hide the husbands, too. LOL. I know if my husband saw this he would ask for a game bus party next year for his birthday. And, he would have a line of friends ready to come. Looks like a lot of fun!

  44. Oh my goodness, that’s fun. I imagine the seats are worn, lol, but lovingly so. 😉
