Get ready to play the latest computer games and consoles, sing, dance and party in the ultimate mobile gaming party van, launched by a Lincoln couple.
Husband and wife Lee and Beks Millard started their business Level Up Gaming just over a week ago on January 20, which brings the party directly to customers across the whole of Lincolnshire.
The van has the capacity for up to 12 children or eight adults inside, with outwards facing televisions to open up the party even more on better weather days. Inside the van are four Xbox One consoles, two PS4s, a Nintendo Switch and seven large 4K screens. The Nintendo Switch includes dancing and singing games, and the van also has karaoke equipment.
A sweet cone/sweets popcorn machine cart is also available and more consoles and Playstation VR will be added in the near future. Retro games are also in the pipeline for the future.
Level Up Gaming also caters for charity bookings, birthdays, weddings, stag/hen parties, corporate days and other events. It also offers custom party invites created unique for each person, for the birthday boy or girl to hand to their gaming friends.
The van needs access to a standard 13A plug socket and your internet router. However it can also be self-sufficient with its own power and mobile internet. There is no extra charge for being powered by Level Up Gaming’s own power or for mobile internet, but it can be signal permitting.
Prices start at £120 for one hour. Level 2 (90 minutes) is priced at £160 and Level 3 (2 hours) costs £190. Level Up Custom (3 hours) is available for £250 and 60 minutes additional play can be purchased for £60.
Bookings have already been taken in Louth, Market Rasen, Grimsby and Cleethorpes and father-of-six Lee, 40, told The Lincolnite: “It’s been a dream of mine since the 90s before gaming was online and I thought it would be a good opportunity to do something.
“I am absolutely over the moon to launch the business. We have been inundated with enquires and want to grow it and build the library of games up, keep up with the latest consoles and in the future maybe get a second van.”
Lee, who particularly enjoys playing the Forza Motorsport games on the Xbox One, also has future plans to have a free deal once a month for disadvantaged or severely disabled children.
