Safety First! | Salinas Monterey Hollister Game Truck Blog


Of course, we want our guests to have an AMAZING time and to leave their cares at the door and enjoy themselves! That said, we go to great pains to make sure our guests are safe and secure in our mobile game theater.

You may have seen in last year’s news, the unfortunate event in Atlanta where 7 kids and 2 adults fell ill with carbon monoxide poisoning while playing in a game truck. The employee, VERY unwisely, ran an external generator inside the game truck with no ventilation. Thankfully, everyone was okay (though they all had to go to the hospital). You should know that we have 2 generators; our primary one that is permanently mounted outside in the front, and our backup. Our main one’s exhaust directs the fumes to the driver’s side of our mobile game theater, AWAY from the front door and our AC units. When it’s necessary to use our backup, we make sure to place it in a similar spot, directing the exhaust away from everyone. To be on the safe side, we’ve also installed a carbon monoxide detector inside.

In addition to having a fire extinguisher inside the mobile game theater at all times, we’ve also implemented a safety plan (available upon request) in the event of fire, active shooter and other emergencies.

Our employees undergo an extensive background check, especially in the areas of crime and sexual abuse. We know how worrisome it can be to leave kids with people you don’t know (we’re parents too!), that’s why we always welcome parents into our mobile game theater at ANY time during our parties!

Lastly, our rules aren’t just there to boss around the kids, they’re mostly for the safety of our guests! We love having little ones around, but we’re adamant that parents hold them while in the trailer. Not only can they cause damage to controllers and consoles, but it’s easy for them to fall off our seats or stumble as they climb out of the trailer unsupervised. Similarly, big kids can fall off the seats too! Sometimes they get carried away and start jumping up and down on the seats…that’s why we kindly ask that they stay seated. It’s also our policy to close the side door (where our two outside TVs are) when it’s raining, to avoid any chance of slipping.

With all of this in mind, we’re thankfully 100% accident and injury free! Our customers trust us with their kiddos…we don’t take that lightly!
