Main Event has announced that it will exclusively debut the world’s most popular virtual reality game, Beat Saber, at its 43 locations nationwide.
The game will officially launch on Aug. 31 during Labor Day weekend, a.k.a. “Saber Day Weekend.” Beat Saber is an award-winning VR rhythm game in which players slash the beats of various music genres as they fly toward the player. The game features several songs and five difficulty levels. Players use VR motion controllers to wield a pair of lightsaber-esque objects, which are used to slash the color-corresponding blocks. Beat Saber is currently the number 1 single-player VR game in the world.
“We don’t know if we can officially change the name of this weekend from Labor Day to ‘Saber Day,’ but inside Main Event centers this weekend, our guests are certainly in for a life-changing experience with Beat Saber,” said Sarah Beddoe, chief brand officer for Main Event. “We are constantly pushing innovative ways to treat our guests to experiences they can’t get anywhere else, and by being the first family entertainment center in the country to introduce Beat Saber, we think we’ve done just that.”
In honor of the game’s debut at Main Event, guests who sign up to become a Main Event member during Saber Day Weekend, Aug. 31 – Sept. 2, will receive a free game of Beat Saber. Main Event is also launching a new Beat Saber ICEE made with a mix of Blue Raspberry and Cherry flavors during the event.
“Labor Day weekend is already one of the busiest times of the year at Main Event, so we thought what better way to put our own twist on the ‘Saber Day Weekend’ than to add a special drink concoction to the celebration,” said Mark Boyton, director of menu innovation for Main Event.
