ACTIVATE GAMES TO OPEN NEW LOCATION AT AMERICAN DREAM, NEW JERSEY!

July 21, 2022


BERGEN COUNTY, NJ (July 21, 2022) – 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.
  
“We’re thrilled to add Activate Games to the growing list of unique experiences at American Dream,” said Don
Ghermezian, American Dream’s CEO. “American Dream is constantly evolving its entertainment lineup to
delight our multi-generational audience. This innovative concept that combines digital and sport-style games is
truly the next evolution in attractions and will be an outstanding option for our guests.”
 
“American Dream is an unbelievable destination with an outstanding lineup of entertainment, shopping and
dining,” said Bryce Anderson, owner of Activate Games. “It’s the perfect place for us to open our East Coast
flagship.”
Activate Games will be the latest addition to American Dream’s world-class lineup of indoor attractions, which
include DreamWorks Water Park, Nickelodeon Universe Theme Park, LEGOLAND Discovery Center, SEA
LIFE Aquarium, Big SNOW Ski Hill, The Escape Game, Dream Wheel, and exciting attractions coming soon
such as The Game Room Powered by Hasbro and Skip Barber Racing Go-Kart Academy.
