BERGEN COUNTY, N.J. — Expanding its lineup of world-class attractions, American Dream is excited to announce that Activate Games, an indoor, interactive gaming experience that merges the best of gaming technology with competitive, real-life activity, will open a 5,000 square-foot East Coast flagship location at the unrivaled entertainment/retail center.

Activate Games takes entertainment into the future by fusing technology and full body activity together to create live-action gaming experiences. Teams, made up of 2-5 players, are challenged physically and mentally as they choose from over 500 different games and difficulty levels, such as shooting games that include basketball games that mixes team trivia with Pop-A-Shot, or an action-movie inspired laser game. An RFID wristband tracks participants’ scores and progress throughout the experience making it perfect for a casual night out with friends, corporate team building activities, or intense competition.
