Activate Games is a state of the art facility with a wide variety of gaming experiences. You and your group enter inside a video game experience and become the players to actively and mentally complete challenges. Unlike virtual reality, Activate is a real life experience. Each challenge is under 3 minutes and is difficult to complete, making it almost impossible to succeed on your first try. Each player is given an electronic wristband synced to their player profile to track scores and game completion.
