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

When Can I Have My Party And How Long Does It Last?

Birthday CelebrationWe’re open year-round and your event can occur on any day/time. Our schedule fills up fast so book early! You’ll have the venue all to yourself (which includes multiple game arenas, a place for food and drinks and for parents to relax or enjoy some classic console games). We also offer everyone a unique opportunity to enter live repair labs and briefly learn about technology at our sister company “San Diego PC Help.”

How Many People Can I Invite?

Our primary game room supports up to 10 simultaneous players and our adjacent room can accommodate 5 additional participants.  We’ve found that most parties average 10-12 guests plus parents and friends. Our venue can comfortably hold 25 people.

What Length Of Time Do You Recommend?

A two hour event typically translates into one and a half hours of actual game time (depending on factors such as check-in/setup time, cleanup, any serving of food, cake, etc.) A three hour event has always been our most popular – kids love the extra time and we strongly recommend it!

How does Minecraft work? Can my child play his Minecraft World with his friends?

minecraft-characterA Minecraft party is our most popular event – it makes for an exciting group session. The manufacturer of Minecraft requires a paid account in order to play. It must be a PC or Mac account (XBOX, Playstation, iOS or Android will not work). Participants can bring their own account or rent from us for only $5.

We offer customized world importing to our server! If you have a customized world, you can access it during the party. Please email it to us as a compressed file, share it with info@gamesync.us on the cloud (dropbox, onedrive, etc.), bring it in on a USB memory stick or burn to disc before your event so we can install and test it. If you don’t know where the files are stored or how to copy them, please contact us and we’ll be glad to help you. For more on this process, please read our Minecraft page.

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.
