Activate Games, an indoor, interactive gaming experience, has just opened a new location outside Chicago, offering an exciting new futuristic form of entertainment and competition.
Fusing technology and physical activity, the Winnipeg-based company offers a wide range of high-tech, real-life games. Hundreds of combinations of live-action challenges have been designed to test physical and mental agility pitting teams against each other in one to three-minute face-offs.
Those interested in a casual night out or a fierce competition against friends can now head down to the futuristic gaming facility in Oak Brook joining the likes of Puttshack and the neighborhood’s burgeoning array of attractions.
The new Activate Games Chicago location offers 500+ arcade-like experiences including shooting games and action movie-inspired laser games.
There are a variety of gaming rooms including Megagrid, Hoops, Push, Hide, Laser, Trench, Pipes, Climb, and much more to ensure that different skill sets are put to the test.
With so many adrenaline activities you can expect competition to heat up which is why Activate Games use an electronic wristband to track team scores.
The RFID wristband tracks each participant’s scores as they progress throughout making it both reliable and convenient.
“We are excited to be opening our first Illinois location and our sixth location in the US,” said Bryce Anderson, owner of Activate Games. “We’re thrilled to be joining the Chicago and Oak Brook communities, and we’re hoping to become a staple place where friends and family can gather to enjoy a unique experience that can’t be found anywhere else.”
“Activate allows guests to have fun with their closest friends and family while working as a team,” said Anderson. “We hope people leave their Activate Games experience wanting to come back for more and set a new personal record.”
Founded in 2019, Activate Games began with multiple locations in Canada and now has further locations in the US in Gatlinburg in Tennessee, Louisville in Kentucky, and Lexington in Kentucky. Two other locations are expected to open in Dallas, Texas, and East Rutherford, New Jersey imminently as well as further locations in Houston, Texas, and Birmingham, Alabama mooted for later this year.
