Fortnite Party

Fortnite is the most popular game at the moment and our party bus entertains 9 children on 9 consoles, each child has their own HD screen. The iBox has been entertaining thousands of children since 2011, we have always co-ordinated our parties as competitions, with many rounds of battles, races. These could be set to last for 5-10 mins and we could entertain up to 12 in each vehicle. The person with the highest points gets to choose a prize. Fortnite battles can last 25 mins, so we do recommend a maximum of 9 children, you are welcome to invite more children but it is a long time to wait a turn and due to the length of battles we can’t guarantee everybody getting a fair go like we could when we could limit battles to just 5 mins.

Fortnite continually updates itself, once to twice a week, so there are always new features, settings and gameplay. Initially children could only play in squads of up to 4, but now the game includes a creative mode, where all 9 children can battle it out together. We can either co-ordinate a group competition or allow the children to set up their own squads (2-4 players per squad) to play as they please. Previously our party buses were disc based, the children would always want to view our games folder to see what we have. Now most games are preloaded on the consoles, the children can easily see what games are available. It is therefore very important to let us know what age range of games the children are restricted to play.

In order to have a Fortnite party we need to get our party bus online. The best way to do this is to plug into your broadband router (this provides a stronger signal than Wifi and doesn’t compromise your security as we don’t need to know your password), we bring a 30m cable which is long enough to reach from outside your home where we park to the router in your house. If you don’t have a broadband router or plan to hold your party at a venue without broadband, we do have a plan B solution, our vehicles are equipped with 4G routers. You can check the signal prior to booking to see if our 4G router has a strong enough signal at your location. If for some reason you have already booked a Fortnite party and we cannot get a strong enough 4G signal, there are still some offline games that can be played on those vehicles. We can host a Fifa League (3yrs) offline. Other Multiplayer shooting games we can host offline are Halo (15yrs), Call of Duty (16 yrs) and Black Ops (18 yrs). You would need to make sure parents are agreeable for these games to be played.

Fortnite Birthday Party ideas

Since 2011 we have always tried to run our parties as competitions of rounds and we offer a choice of prize for the winner. Since offering Fortnite, we have found it harder to orchestrate as a organised competition as the children are very used to setting up the game themselves and just getting stuck in. We will happily suggest they all try and have a group competition but if they decide they just want to organise themselves into mini squads then we will let the Birthday Boy or Girl choose a prize of their choice. All prizes can be seen in our shop, we also offer some great bundle deals if you want to ensure everybody gets a prize.

Please note, we cannot guarantee Fortnite being available when we arrive for your party. This is because the game brings out updates once and sometimes twice a week. We endeavour to update as much as possible. However should the game release an update whilst en-route to your party, then we would be unable to play the game until that update has downloaded. A different game could be played whilst downloading the update but sizes of these updates can vary from 500mb to 13gb per console, all 9 would need the update.
