How much space will I need for a GameVan.ie Game Party?
Our GameVan will take up two standard car parking spaces and will generally fit on a standard driveway.
How far in advance do I need to book?
There are no time limits, but best to book as early as possible to get the date and time slot that you prefer. That's not to say we don't take last minute bookings, just call us for availability or check online.
How many can be in the GameVan at once?
We recommend 1 Player Per Screen as that works best. Depending on the size of the GameVan booked the maximum capacity, shown as Up To, is based on a 7 year olds party, for older kids the maximum capacity should be adjusted accordingly to allow enough space for all to play.
My Booking is Confirmed but it shows as 10am online?
Please note, 10am is sometimes used as a placeholder when multiple customers book the same time and van. We have several vans, this way it eliminates the possibility of a double booking. Your time is confirmed both via email and text message after the deposit is paid.
How is the Travel Fee calculated?
We travel nationwide Monday to Thursday at a rate of €0.75 per km plus Tolls excluding the M50 Toll. This is calculated from our Registered Business Address Eircode D24 CR74 to your Eircode. For Weekend Travel including Friday this is subject to availability.
Do adults have to be present at the children's party?
It's not mandatory that an adult remain at the GameVan as our Game Coach will be on hand to assist the party goers, however we do ask that an adult is present at the venue throughout the course of the party.
Do you drive around?
No, whilst a party is being held the GameVan is completely stationary and parked up.
I have a question not listed above?
