Announcing “Blackbeard” for Omni Arena

Blackbeard: Trials of Skull Island

In Blackbeard, up to four players work together as pirates to loot treasure, fend off villainous foes, and achieve high scores on the leaderboard.

Each game has four distinct rounds, including a cooperative puzzle challenge and a final boss fight, providing players with lots of variety and reasons to play again and again. Watch the trailer below:

Blackbeard is Omni Arena’s most kid-friendly game to date, and it’s also a blast for adults and esports players. Blackbeard will be part of Omni Arena’s weekly and monthly esports tournaments. The top teams on the game’s global leaderboard will win cash prizes from a $100,000 prize pool.

Encouraging data continues

According to data collected by Omni Arena systems nationwide, the health of our industry continues to improve.

Currently, 20 of 26 Omni Arena locations have reopened the attraction to the public. At half of those venues, gameplay sessions on Omni Arena have recovered to 80% or more of pre-lockdown levels. 7 out of 20 venues are back to 100% or more.

Overall, Omni Arena revenues at FECs are averaging $2,450 per week, about 75% of pre-lockdown levels.

We have resumed Omni Arena installations. This week we’re installing a system at Shankz Black Light Miniature Golf in The Woodlands, TX. Over the next four weeks we’ll install two more, including at Pole Position Raceway in Las Vegas.

$100,000 esports prize pool is back!

We’ve resumed Omni Arena esports contests and will offer a total of $100,000 in cash prizes this year. Players in the weekly and monthly contests will compete for $8,000 in prize money each month.

Omni Arena esports contests are an effective way to attract guests and build repeat attendance. In our player survey, completed by more than 8,000 players to date, 43% reported they visited the venue specifically to play Omni Arena.

Special discounts and launch marketing

We’d like to do our part to get our industry moving again. We’re offering significant discounts on Omni Arena systems until the end of summer. We’re also including, free of charge, a launch marketing package worth $3,000. The package features a grand opening esports contest with $2,000 in cash prizes and $1,000 in social media ads, exclusively for your venue. We want to help attract guests back to your FEC!
