Gaming Squad reveals first look at our final look

You climb into the back of the van. A wall of 4K High Definition screens glares back at you, back lit with colour changing LED’s, on a background of dark carpeted walls. This is what greets you when you first board our state of the art Gaming van!

Early artist’s impressions give you a first glimpse of what the final product will look like. Boarding the van you’ll be hit with a wall of four 43 inch High Definition screens side by side giving the impression of a wall of screen. The vivid gaming graphics of FIFA 18 and Mario Kart 8 will beam out against the darkness of the dark grey carpeted interior. Bass booming surround sound from dedicated sound bars mounted underneath each TV add to the theatre style experience. Add to that the entire van is backlit with colour changing mood lighting LED’s to create a special atmospheric gaming experience your kids will love.

Gaming Squads first dedicated gaming van is not far from completion. We’ll be announcing a chance to win our first party for free in the near future. Details will be posted on our Facebook page so get liking our page if you want to win this.

Our commitment to the WOW factor

Matt black stainless steel electric sockets

Sockets, sockets and yet more sockets

You’ve already seen the insulation and carpeting that will keep our van lovely toasty warm in those cold winter months. Today we wanted to show you our commitment to finish.

We want our van to provide you with that WOW factor ever time it pulls up to your party so it’s critical we get the finish right in everything we do. Even when it comes to electrical sockets! We could have gone for the cheap white sockets but oh no… we’ve gone for the matt black brushed stainless steel look.  We’ve even upgraded to include the USB charging sockets.  Its attention to detail on minor stuff like this that we hope will shine through when the van is finished and we truly believe that will be the case.

It’s a carpeted wall!

Hey what’s this? One side of the van is now carpeted! Beautiful dark grey carpet walls. Haha you won’t hear that uttered often. Ok so its dark grey and its carpet but its a crucial element in creating our darkened theatre style gaming arena with just the lights from LEDS and TV Screens piercing your darkness.

The whole van will be carpeted in this stuff. Together with our colour changing mood lights we hope to create an atmosphere that heightens your gaming experience. Stay tuned for more updates and an exclusive opportunity to be the first to play this van. More on that very soon!

Never been this excited about insulation

Exclusive behind the scenes footage. Well behind the scenes because it will never see the light of day again. Its insulation! Sorry not very exciting but you’ll be thankful for this stuff on those cold winter days. The guys have been busy stuffing every nook and cranny of the ‘beast’ with super thick insulation to keep the van warm and toasty for those winter birthday parties. It’ll help to keep the cold out and keep the warm in from our state of the art temperature controlled air conditioning systems. Of course it will do the opposite on those sweltering summer days but we don’t get many of those.

For the eagle eyed you’ll also spot one of the TV’s and as for that dirty bulk head well we’ve got grand plans for that. Stay tuned.

First Gaming Squad van update

Game van seating

Can we fit 16 people on these seats?

Ok its not much but the guys have been busy creating a template for the two tiered seating. Lucky they did because If we had gone for the original dimensions those sat on the bottom tier would have had their noses pressing against the TV’s 🙂

Now the dimensions are set the plywood will all be pulled out and we’ll start again. The hard work and transformation starts here. Stay tuned to our blog, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram channels to see this van transform in front of your very eyes!

Gaming vans coming to South Wales soon

Gaming Squad will be bringing gaming vans to the roads of South Wales but what are they and what can you expect?

Well first of all they are huge. You won’t miss them should you happen to share the road with them. Gaming vans started in America and it is a huge business over there with over 700 vans operating across the states. In the last few years the vans have come across the pond with most ventures operating out of London where the industry is becoming an established part of the party scene.

Gaming Squad aim to be the first company to bring these vans to the roads of South Wales. So what can you expect? Well our first van is packed full of the latest in console gaming technology. We’ll have the latest Xbox’s and Playstations and we’ll have representation from Nintendo to. They’ll all be connected to the latest Ultra HD 4K TV’s with each TV connected to a dedicated booming surround sound theatre bar. All in all the van will cater for 16 kids or 12 adults allowing them to enjoy playing the latest games against each other in the forgotten art of social gaming. Stay tuned for a chance to win the first ever Gaming Squad party. More will be revealed later on.

The journey starts now

The largest van on the road

Gaming Squad is finally live. Today we purchased our van. No ordinary van. Its the biggest van on the road. Truly got to be seen to be appreciated. The guys who will be customising it have already nicknamed it the beast and these guys deal with hundreds of vans every week. It dwarfs the rest of the vans in their garage.

Stay tuned to see how we will change this van from a builders van to a state of the art gaming theatre. No expense spared. We will be posting regular updates both here and on our social media channels.
