Cupcakery owner launches video game party bus in Bozeman

Posted: Updated:

If you’ve got a big birthday, wedding, or business event coming up, a new entertainment center on wheels might be just the kind of party you’re looking for.

On Sunday, the Nutty Ninja Video Game Bus, a traveling video game party center, launched in Bozeman. For creator and owner Terry Ketterer, the bus has been a long time coming.

For Terry, the dream started in Bozeman, at the Cupcake Mountain Cupcakery that he owns and operates with his wife.

As Terry explains it, he just wanted to find a way to turn his video game collection into something that could be a career.

“A few years ago… I had seen this idea where people make these video game trailers and they attach them to trucks and stuff like that, and I was like ‘Well, that’d be really cool,’” Terry explained. “And I looked into that and I was like, “Boy, I don’t know about that. But a school bus would be really cool.’ That’s when I had the idea to do this on a school bus. To put all the video games and everything that you could ever imagine, and kids be able to play with their parents, because they can play the new stuff and the old stuff.”

But it hasn’t always been fun and games. The process was very much a labor of love for Terry. He had to get a school bus driver’s license to operate the bus, and he says he can’t even count how many hours he’s put into business plans, designs, creating a website, and the building of the van itself.

For the past two years, he has worked nearly nonstop on the project: spending his weekdays in the cupcake shop and his weekends on the bus.

But now, Terry’s dream is very real, and it’s parked right outside of the cupcakery that he and his wife still own.

The Nutty Ninja Video Game Bus includes 5 flat-screen TVs, an A/C unit, seating for 15-20 players, and the ability to hook up “any video game system you could ever imagine” (including a PS4, Nintendo 64, Nintendo Switch, GameCube, Xbox 360, and even going back as far back as the original Nintendo). Terry says he foresees more than 2,000 games being offered on the bus someday.

And sweetest of all? Terry and his wife will continue working together: party packages include cupcakes from the Cupcake Mountain Cupcakery.

And Terry has even bigger dreams for his new business. He plans on partnering with local businesses, and possibly even expanding into other types of “video game vehicles.”

“[It’s] every kid’s dream, maybe even every 30-year-old’s dream,” he explained. “You know, you don’t have to work a day in your life if you have a lot of fun doing what you love.”
