Do you have a BFF or mate that you just can’t seem to drag away from their console? Are they constantly glued to their PC gaming rig and never want to go out? If it’s their birthday coming up and you want to do something a little different, there are some great things you can organize for their special day. You don’t want to buy them the latest games release or update their gaming experience. Instead, you want to introduce them to the real wide world outside of their online battles. Here are some tips to help you organize an awesome birthday celebration.
What Do You Think They’d Like to Do?
The best ideas are going to be something gaming related which does make the options a little limited. However, you may be surprised to learn that they are several different activities you can look into. An Escape Room experience is one such option. Did you even realize there was an escape room industry? Escape rooms provide visitors with real-life adventures including the opportunity to break out of a room by cracking codes, solving riddles, piecing together puzzles, and finding clues.
Paintballing is another great idea for you and your gaming friends. Basically, it’s a game of tag using balls made with gelatin shells. Inside these shells is a water-soluble dye. The balls are fired out of a “gun” using compressed gas. This adventure sport originated in America but is now played all over the world. It’s a great excuse for you all to dress up in your camouflage gear and run around in the woods shooting at each other. There are different types of paintball. However, your gaming friend would probably prefer Tactical Military Simulation, with gear and objectives relevant to gameplay.
How are You Going to Get There?
Driving there is a bit too obvious, so why not try and do something different? Get the bus, take a train or get on your bikes and cycle there. For a special event such as a birthday, there’s also the option of hiring a chauffeur for a few hours, and you can arrive in style. This kind of service is actually more reasonable than you think. It’ll be a great way for a group of you to travel in comfort with as little effort as possible.
Discounts and Special Offers
If there’s a large group of you joining in the celebration, you might be lucky enough to qualify for a group discount. There are many different attractions that offer special deals for group bookings. The internet is a great place to start looking, and you’ll be amazed at the different deals you can find. Groupon is a good place to start looking for special offers in your area.
When you’ve got a gaming geek in your life, it can be difficult to get them to do anything different. Celebrating a birthday is something that calls for a little bit of effort on your part. You never know, they might enjoy doing what you’ve planned so much that it becomes a regular thing. Now wouldn’t that be grand?
