The screens are the perfect distance from each of the chairs to protect from eye strain and also abut six feet away from the person next to you. “You’ll feel like you’re the only person in the room,” Jones said.

There are also two additional 80-inch screens for groups that want to play together.

The pair wanted to create a family experience that is much more than an arcade. The facility has party rooms offering birthday parties for $25 a person which includes two hours of gaming, free pizza and a T-shirt. A party technician ensures everyone is happy and parents have a chance to relax.

“We offer free wi-fi access as well and couches for the mom and her friends to relax,” Jones said. “Instead of trashing your home, parents are able to relax and let us handle everything.”

GamerTagz wants to open itself up to the business community and people who aren’t even game fanatics as well. Jones and Kelly have had discussions with Weatherford College about being an offsite facility to hold classes online. With its high-tech capabilities, the pair say they can be a training center for groups, orgsnizations or buisnesses who need a room with a lot of computers and space.

“We can have up to 60 people work simultaneously on the same message or completely different things in smaller groups if need be,” Jones said.

GamerTagz also offers professional disc refubrishing for compact discs or DVDs that may have become destroyed over the years/ To demonstrate, Jones took a new disc out of the package and scratched it up to show how the process works. Within less than five minutes, the disc came out brand new.

“We hope the public will bring us their used CDs and DVDs to refurbish,” Jones said. “For $5 and about three minutes time, we can restore a disc to like new quality.
