Teams of two to five players can tap into their best gaming skills with a choice of over 500 sports shooting and trivia games, and action-movie experience, each boasting various difficulty levels.

Basketball shooting games blend with team trivia during Pop-A-Shot play, while a laser challenge inspired by action movies makes for a mentally and physically demanding, family-friendly option.

Players receive RFID wristbands that track their scores and progress throughout the experiences, each of which are designed for fun with family and friends, corporate team building, or serious competition.
