The Talk

Technology has been both a blessing and a curse for location-based entertainment. When used correctly, computerized systems can meld seamlessly with the story’s narrative and the gameplay. In this talk, we’ll discuss how the strategic use of technology can not only be used to provide a cohesive experience for the guests, but also relieve pain-points for the operations staff and the installation team. We’ll highlight some of Boxaroo’s successes with experimenting with technology and some of our most notorious pitfalls to save you that precious time and energy.
