We are very grateful to our guests who have offered their experiences on our Yelp Page (every review is 5-stars).  Here are some selected quotes:

  • “We just had my son’s 8th Birthday party at Gamesync and it was “awesome!!”…his words AND ours! My son chose a Minecraft party and it was completely interactive with all of them in the same virtual world but at different stations.  It was really fun to listen to them playing w each other! The staff was great too…knowledgeable and good with the kids. And as for easy and no hassle….you can’t go wrong here.” - A A. (San Diego, CA) 2/23/14
  • “Thanks so much for helping me throw “the best birthday party ever” according to my 10-year-old son. All the boys really had a great time at Gamesync. The staff went over and above to get everyone logged on and playing what they wanted. Even teaching them how to acquire new swords and other Minecraft strategies. For the party planner (me), they were very responsive, informative, helpful and an overall pleasure to work with to make the party a huge success. Thank you!!!” - Cynthia K. (Carlsbad, CA) 2/13/14
  • My 12 year old nephew’s birthday party at Gamesync was a hit! The kids were so happy to play. They chilled with their snacks and drinks (safely in cup holders) and played video games to their hearts content for 2 hours. Very cool place and perfect for a gamers party. You are allowed to bring in snacks, food and cake, even decorate. The kids play, eat pizza/snacks, everyone sings happy birthday: you’re in, you’re out, you’re done. Would gladly do this again and save the hassle of a traditional party which a 12 year old thinks is lame anyway. He was on cloud 9.Bonus – they had a Nintendo set up and let my 6 yr old play too.” - Nancy F. (San Diego, CA) 12/2/13
  • “We celebrated my son’s 11th birthday in GameSync Gaming Center today. We had 10 guests including my son. They all loved the game choices and the ambience there. The staffs are amazing. We received an exceptional customer service. They were very polite and patient. They helped us with setting up and cleaning up as well.” - Sonia O. (San Diego, CA) 2/22/14
  • “We had a group of boys for my son’s 13th birthday party and they had a really fun time! The staff was polite and helpful which was great because a few of the kids weren’t regular gamers. And they were patient about the fact that we had more kids than I originally RSVP’d for and accommodated us nicely.” - T W. (San Diego, CA) 2/2/14
  • “My son loved it.  He and 4 friends could play the same game together.  Safe environment, snacks and drinks available and very helpful people.  and free Wi-Fi to do your on thing while the kids play.” - Doreen T. (San Diego, CA) 9/9/13
  • “We had my daughter’s 11th birthday party at Gamesync and it was a success. The kids had an great time and several said it was the best birthday party they ever attended. I think the kids could have stayed there for hours.” - Suzanne S. (San Diego, CA) 3/16/14

A Minecraft party is our most popular event – it makes for an exciting group session. Please ensure that your guests know that each player MUST have a Minecraft account. Without it, they will be unable to play the game. Rent an account from us for only $5 or purchase from the manufacturer ($27 annually).

If you have a customized world stored on your computer, you can access it during the party. Please copy the files to a USB memory stick and bring it or email it to us so we can install it. If you don’t know where the files are stored or how to copy them to a USB flash drive, please contact us and we’ll be glad to help you. We have an on-premise private Minecraft server and a dedicated Minecraft expert for your event and can prepare custom modifications or anything else you may want.  For more details on Minecraft parties, please talk to your event coordinator during the initial booking phase.

What can parents do during the event?

Parents have a unique opportunity to connect with their kids and watch or play along. Parents can also use our WiFi free of charge or play classic consoles with games from the 80′s and 90′s. Guests can watch the action on our large format TV.
