New, Small Business Rolls Out in Peoria

The owners of a new gaming trailer are hoping it will help bring people together

PEORIA, Ill. - Luke Rosenbohm, co-owner of Game On, is standing next to his new trailer, as kids move through it.

"It's rewarding to know that an idea turned into something that's so successful so far. Seeing the kids, they just walk by and start smiling," he says.

It's been a whirlwind week for Luke and his partners, as the newest small business hits the Peoria streets.

"Everybody loves it. The reactions from people are exciting," says Yvonne Rosenbohm, co-owner and Luke's wife.

"They just start playing," adds Luke.

The rentable trailer is touted as the ultimate gaming experience, with five screens and gaming consoles inside and a screen on the outside.

"None of us game," explains Yvonne. "None of us knew anything about it, but we figured this was a good business opportunity, something we can bring to Peoria."

But it seemed like the right move. Not only is it unique in the Peoria area, it also gives the Rosenbohm family the chance to stay connected. Luke Rosenbohm is in the Air National Guard and just got back from a tour earlier this week.

"Our goal is for us to be able to work together. To be able to bring our kids and be a good example for them," says Yvonne.

For Luke, it's an opportunity to bring joy to his boys and kids in the area.

"I've got kids now and I want to make sure that anytime they want to have fun, we can find something out there," he says.

The Rosenbohms are hoping to use Game On as a way to bring people together and create a sense of community.

"To have the kids playing inside, have a movie on outside for the adults, hanging out. You know, socializing, getting neighbors together again, getting families together," explains Yvonne.

The trailer will be on display at the March Madness Experience all weekend.
