August 20th, 2012
I’ve been to a few video game events and I have to say they are a lot of fun. It’s the perfect opportunity to test your skills against a group of friends or other gamers. Plus, onlookers always cheer you on. This Thursday, August 23, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Nintendo World Store in Rockefeller Center, the construction toy company K’NEX will celebrate the addition of Mario Kart™ Wii Building Sets (for ages 6 and up) with in-store events for fans. Stop by and have fun with hands-on activities including building stations, product demonstrations and photo opportunities with Mario and Luigi. All gaming stations at the Nintendo World Store will feature Mario Kart games, and the first 1,000 fans to enter the store on August 23rd will receive a free K’NEX Mario Kart Wii Buildable Figure Bag. Visitors can also compete in contests, including “Guess the Number of Figures” and “Fastest Builder” for a chance to win K’NEX Mario Kart Wii Building Sets. The event will feature a giant track display, which will demonstrate the size and scope of tracks that can be built at home with the purchase of multiple sets. The new additions to the K’NEX Mario Kart Wii line ($7.99 to $149.99) will debut this month in stores across the country.
