Revolutionising Entertainment: The Rise of Exergaming in Resorts and Venues

What is Exergaming?

Exergaming, the combination of the two english words 'exercise' and 'gaming,' is an interactive form of entertainment that combines physical activity with video gaming. Its roots can be traced back to the early 1980s with the Power Pad by NES, but it has recently surged in popularity, thanks to advancements in technology and a growing emphasis on health and wellness.

Recent years have seen a spike in exergaming facilities within resorts. From virtual reality cycling adventures to PleyoStation, a transformed mini-trampoline, these innovative offerings are catering to a diverse range of guests, from fitness enthusiasts to families seeking fun and interactive experiences.

For resorts, this translates to happier guests, increased loyalty, and positive word-of-mouth.

The Future of Exergaming in Hospitality

As technology evolves, we can anticipate more immersive and interactive exergaming experiences in resorts. For example, PLEYO is continuously developing new games and products to remain at the forefront of the exergaming industry.
