8-16-06: Another successful Open House tonight! This one was specifically for healthcare professionals (docs, NPs) and public health nutritionists. They also brought their kids so they could try out all the games and give their parents feedback. We wanted our local healthcare folks to experience exertainment firsthand so when they're talking to that parent with a child who needs to exercise or learn how to eat right, they'll think of XRtainment Zone as the place to refer them too!
GM Dr. Knowlton was there to welcome our invited guests with a packet of information about our services. Included in that packet was a prescription pad for the doc to give his patients on the various services available to them. (They also get a 15% discount if they bring in that prescription!)
Corey explains things to Dr. Phillips and his son while the grandkids play on the Xavix games.
Family members crash and burn on the car racing game.

Joel explains how the dome speakers work overhead to some prospective members.
