3 Reasons to Visit Activate Gaming New Jersey

By 9/11/2023 12:04:00 PM ,

Activate – the indoor, interactive gaming experience – opened a new location inside American Dream Mall, New Jersey and invited my family for a first experience of their gaming rooms.

Note: I was invited as media for review purpose. However, any views expressed are always 100% my own.

And what an experience it was! Overall this new location has a lot for gaming families with kids over age 10, teens, or just adults to enjoy including

  • Pressure-sensitive, color-changing tiles that challenge players to step on or avoid specific tiles to complete each round.
  • Mega Grid, which tests gamers; quick thinking as they race to- the right spot and freeze into statues at the perfect moment.
  • Strike, an innovative evolution of the fan-favorite Arena.

My mom and teen sons group had a blast playing whether it was with each other in a laser game to complete a task or against each other in the basketball game room. We can't wait to go back and play more!

Here's a few reasons that made our experience so fun

Check in Process & Locker

The check in process is so quick and smooth. After checking in for your pre-reservation, you finish up the process and sign all the forms on a tablet. You also scan and setup your gaming bands.

From there put your stuff in a locker, which also uses a scan band and your set! I was able to fit two bags, jackets and more in our locker easily. So we were free to game and not drag stuff around from room to room.

Interactive Team Gaming

When you have a team of people, there's no limit to the fun and no way anyone is going to be bored or feel left out. We love that!

We were so impressed that each room offered game play that could be experience more then one way. As a team you decided what version of a game you want to play in the room. And if you weren't sure how to play, the panel gave basic instructions.

Once in the rooms, we play as a group to finish the goal. The game start off easy so you get a feel for the game and then you can level up for more challenging game play.

But there's nothing super hard, so us moms were able to keep up with the teens. Heck, some times we played better then them. Some games are physical, while other are more logical. But all of the game are so fun!

We also liked that each room is on a timer. So no long game play if the team doesn't enjoy the game or if your waiting on a room your team did enjoy playing.

There's leaderboards to check your ranking and monitors to check your points, badges earned and more.
