The best party venue in Corby

Aug 05, 2021

Where do we start?! After nearly a whole year of being strict to the line with the rule of six during Covid, we were finally able to open our doors to our first gold package party. Being the proud sponsors that we are, we were absolutely thrilled to be able to welcome in S & L U8’s football team and their parents for their end of season party! To say we were excited would be an understatement!

Kicking off with a storm!

With 38 guests gearing up for the party of the season, it was an atmosphere like no other last Saturday, when we hosted the S & L U8’s football team end of season party! With our gold package boasting exclusive venue hire and allowing full use of all VR equipment, we had hours of action across our VR Pods and VR Racing Simulators.

One the one side, we had soon transformed our football boys into Space Pirates, as they battled against each other in our Space Pirate Trainer VR experience. Split into four teams, they worked together to fight off waves of enemy robots, whilst us staff kept track of their scores. 

We watched tensely as all teams put up a great fight, using their defensive armor effectively and mastering the art of dodging. However, there could only be one winner and we were elated to announce the winning team on the podium! But win or lose, there were certainly smiles all round for our boys in VR!

Not just for the kids!

And it didn’t stop at the kids! Over on our racing sims, we had some intense competition happening between the parents as they raced for poll position. It was a tough to know who was going to take champion position at our Grand Prix, with drama at every turn (quite literally!). A reenactment of Lewis Hamilton pushing Max Verstappen off the track at Silverstone certainly presented itself, as we saw one of our dads knock another off the track. No mistakes missed here as spectator Garry added on penalty points, just like at Silverstone itself.

Suspense was high, as parents continued to race against each other towards that all-desired, gold medal! In the end, we had a tie in 1st place, including our one and only (naughty) Hamilton, along with a close 2nd too. But let us not forget our 3rd (or 4th should we say) place winner, who was rightly awarded with a wooden spoon!

Topped off nicely!

All VR games were topped off nicely with Rollover Hotdogs, cheeseburgers, and unlimited soft drinks – all included in our gold party package! Not to mention countless balloons and banners, all of course in the S & L’s team colours. We then treated our trusty footballers to a well-deserved cake, with the AFC club logo on there! It went down an absolute treat!

A kind heart goes a long way!

The support network between these boys was admirable to see. We were blown away by the kindness that was shared between the team. We had some newcomers to our centre who had never experienced VR before.

Usually, this is where we would step in… but their fellow players did the work for us! Offering support and reassurance that everything was to be okay for their nervous teammates, we were witness to true friendship and sportsmanship all round!

A success!

We can say without a doubt that these children are a credit to their parents, their team, the Weetabix League and Grassroots Football. We witnessed such a polite bunch of children who quite simply, made our jobs so much easier on the day!

A huge thanks to Neil and Lynsey for organising your end of season party with us, all be it a week later than originally scheduled! We think it's safe to say that the team and their parents shared a memorable end of season party here at ViRAL Entertainment, Corby. We even saw some of our football players back here on the Monday after – clearly our players just weren’t ready for their adventure to end!

And of course, we can’t forget our team too. Well done to Team ViRAL for absolutely smashing our first party back. Seamless service and VR demonstrations meant the smooth running of a fantastic day!

From our team to yours. We’d say booking your next team sport party at ViRAL Entertainment is a no brainer…
