Only 8 people can play Fortnite at a time. Those in parties with more than 8 participants will have to wait their turn.
Do Gaming Squad staff look after the party?
We sure do. For the entirety. All our staff are DBS checked and professionally trained and all thoroughly nice, decent people just like their boss.
How many people can you fit on the gaming van?
We can accommodate up to 8 children for 7 and 8 year old birthday parties. Up to 10 children for 9 to 12 year old parties and 13 years+ is a maximum of 8 making us one of the largest gaming van’s in the UK!
Is there a minimum age for parties?
We don’t cater for 6 year old parties and below (school year 1). No party and no refund will be given where these rules are broken. Proof of age may be requested.
Can food and drink be consumed on the van?
No food and drink allowed on the van.
Is the gaming van air conditioned?
The gaming van has both air conditioning and heating on-board meaning we can provide comfortable playing conditions all year around
How far will you travel?
We are based in Barry, South Wales. Please see our coverage map for the areas we cover. If you are outside this area please contact us to see what we can do for you.
Do you drive around while the games are being played?
Are you kidding? Our insurers would have kittens! Our parties are always in parked vans. We bring the van to wherever you need us to be.
Will the weather affect my party?
We party in all weathers except in the case of the rare red weather warnings where you would receive a full refund or could move your party to another date.
What do we need from you?
Just space to park the van, access to a mains electric point and access to your home internet router (if having an online party).
Will your gaming van double my energy bills?
No our electrical equipment is the latest A+ low energy use equipment. We calculated if we used everything on board for the entirety of a 90 minute party it would cost just £2 in electric! In reality it is much cheaper because that is based on the 2 air con units being on the whole time. They have never been on the whole time.
