WASHINGTON (CBSDC) – The newest stadium attraction for a minor league Phillies affiliate will likely trickle down to urinals across the country, lengthening the wait time for men’s rooms everywhere.

The (AAA) Lehigh Valley IronPigs will give their male patrons the first squirt at a new technology being brought over from Europe called the “Urinal Gaming System.”

Video screens will be mounted above each urinal, and as a visitor approaches, the screen will activate a gaming mode that’s controlled and operated solely by the aim and consistency of the user.

That’s right, male visitors to Coca-Cola Park will be the first in the country to get to mix their business with pleasure, with each trip to the bathroom bringing another opportunity to test their muscle.

“Our fans are always looking for the next big thing,” said IronPigs GM Kurt Landes, “and these ‘X-Stream games’ are another example of our commitment to providing an unparalleled entertainment experience in all aspects of Coca-Cola Park.”

The scoring of each game runs primarily on speed and accuracy; although there’s been no confirmation other skills won’t spill over.
