Electric Gamebox is now open at Grandscape in The Colony. Now, you’re probably familiar with Andretti Indoor Karting and Games, which is unique and proprietary on its own accord, but Electric Gamebox is different in the sense that the adventure lasts a bit longer; 30 -60 minutes and you don’t have to don a ton of VR gear. Just pop on the futuristic headgear and you’re all set to go.
come enjoy a different concept in gaming at Electric Gamebox. It’s an immersive group adventure experience out of the U.K., and they have now opened their premiere American venue at Grandscape in The Colony. Transport yourself into another reality at Electric Gamebox, an immersive team adventure in the world’s smartest room. Perfect for families, couples, friends and everything in between, the digital adventures, made with best-in-class technology, takes place within a futuristic “Gamebox”—a room that uses projection mapping, touch screens, and motion-tracking technology to deliver a mind-blowing, immersive, team adventure.
The Electric Gamebox concept has been a hit across the United Kingdom and now Texas can experience six exhilarating and immersive adventures. The unique concept is the brainchild of Tough Mudder founder Will Dean. Swapping mud for motion-sensors, Will said, “we’re really excited to be bringing the Electric Gamebox concept to our first US location in Texas. We know how popular Grandscape is with visitors of all ages, and we think they’ll love our one-of-a-kind immersive adventures that promise to inject some fun-fuelled entertainment into their day-out.”
Electric Gamebox was founded on the mission to make screen time social again. Shared play has the power to bring people together, build bonds, and remind us what it means to be human. The ever-increasing issue of social isolation caused by technology is flipped on its head by the Electric Gamebox interactive experience, specifically designed for teams and groups.
A fun mix of speed, teamwork, and a bit of brainpower is needed for the family-friendly adventures, suitable for guests ages eight and up. Working together in groups of two through six for the 30 to 60-minute challenges, the high-energy entertainment experience requires no heavy wearables or equipment, just a visor given upon arrival.
Guests will be able to play the hottest new arcade-style games, and work together to complete a number of challenges, including a Pacman inspired adventure, mining for rare minerals on Mars or battling ghosts for access to treasure. A funky soundtrack sets the mood as you move through each level, getting more challenging throughout the game.
Electric Gamebox will follow strict COVID-19 guidelines, and the private experience lends itself to providing a safe but fun environment. Each Gamebox is reserved for one group at a time with extra time in between to allow for sanitization of the space and equipment.
