DDR Storm is the name of the Dance Dance Revolution tournament created by Joshua Campbell (Tyger) in 2003. Since then, other video game tournaments have been incorporated, but still holds dance games as the main event. It has grown to be a large community of friends that have similar interests in mostly video gaming.
It is a 3 day event from Friday, May 22 through Sunday, May 24. Ballroom will open from 10:00am to 11:00pm on Friday and Saturday; 10:00am to 7:00pm on Sunday.
It will be held at the LaPlaya Resort in Daytona Beach, FL. We will be located in the Main Ballroom located on the Mezzanine between the 2nd and 3rd floor. If using the lobby elevator, use the M Floor.
Main tournaments will include Dance Dance Revolution X3, DDR Extreme, In the Groove, and Pump It Up Prime. There will be other tournaments as well such as Super Smash Bros, Amplitude, Mario Kart 8, and more.
Some dance game machines will be on freeplay for the duration of the event. We will have an open video gaming area for free play, many will bring the DS/3DS consoles for multiplayer experiences and streetpassing, a Nintendo representative will be out on Sunday for a Splatoon demo, and tons of socialization! Let’s not forget the awesome parties after each event day is concluded.
Please contact Tyger before bringing anything to make sure there is enough space to accommodate you.
Absolutely! You get a streetpass! You get a streetpass! We would also like to hold some quick and small tournaments for games like Mario Kart 7, Tetris DS, and more. We need some individuals that would like to take charge of this!
9 Dance Game machines total!
Members of the community has helped in providing all machines that will be at DDR Storm. In other words, yes, they own the machines and will be bringing them. Thank Nick Denty, Anthony Conner, and Chris Cortes.
There will be 1-Day and 3-Day badges. 1-Day badges are $10 each and good for the day you purchase them on. 3-Day badges range from $20.
If you haven’t booked by now, most of the rooms are SOLD OUT.
If you want the full experience, get the 3-Day badge. I don’t know too many people in the community that will say one day is enough for a multi-day Storm event. If you are entering a dance game tournament, you will NEED to obtain the 3-Day pass as these tournaments run more than one day.
Although we understand that sometimes unexpected events come up, we hold to a no refund policy. With that said, there are alternatives. We would happy to transfer your venue or tournament fees to another person that will be attending. Just contact us!
No outside food or alcohol allowed. SERIOUSLY. Soft drinks are an exception.
There will be a water station setup in the ballroom. We might have a station setup to order food, but that isn’t guaranteed. Please support the venue by purchase food they provide for sale. Otherwise, you can check the question for where to purchase food.
The hotel has their own restaurant for the most convenient eats. If you would like to eat off-site, there is a large plaza across the street the following locations: Publix, Ruby Tuesdays, Subway, Dennys, China One, Nicola’s Pizza, and more.
Yep! Right near their pool in front of the beach, they have a tiki bar that will be open during the weekend most of the day. Hours approximate from 11am to 1am depending on how much business there is. There is also 2 hot tubs and a shuffleboard for those who care to partake.
Maybe. Just let me know personally if you would like to help with anything.
