FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
What is Laser Tag?:
Laser Tag (also known as Laser Skirmish or LaserQuest or lasertag) is a fun game of survival that involves using your tagger against opponents. Some scenarios like, lone survivor, or last man standing, require individual skills. Team scenarios involve communication, leadership and team skills.
1. How much does it cost:
- One hour of play: $19.95
- Two hours: $29.95
- Three hours: $39.95
2. Will I get dirty? What should I wear?
- It depends on how careful you are, and how much you want to roll around. However we do have coveralls, so you can get really into it and not get your clothes dirty. You should wear a pair of sneakers, jeans are fine, or other old clothes you don’t mind getting dirty.
3. How long should I play?
- Most people will be out of air in about an hour, it is very intense and a good workout! However, the young and athletic crowd can last for a good two hours of running and shooting each other, through the different scenarios.
4. What if it rains?
- We have two giant indoor warehouses also! Our outdoor fields are high, and dry quickly after the rain goes. Games can also be played if there is a light drizzle outdoors, if players want to.
5. Do we need to reserve?
- A reservation is required, due to the availability and popularity of Laser tag.
6. Does it hurt or is the laser dangerous?
- Laser tag does not hurt as an infrared beam, similar to your television remote, is fired at the speed of light, at your opponent. Since it is an invisible beam, and not a laser beam, it is not dangerous, whatsoever! Since there is not impact, unlike paintball, there is no pain.
7. What is the difference between Laser tag and Paintball?
- In paintball you get a projectile that is actually fired towards you. In this aspect, you do feel getting hit. Since paintballs break on impact, they also tend to mark up your clothes, (although it is water washable).
- A plus for paintball, is that you can hit someone anywhere on the body, foot, back, gun, head, etc. and it counts! In laser tag, you need to aim in the vicinity of the receiver. However, an advantage of our laser tag guns, unlike other systems, is that the receiver is on the gun which is the most relevant part your opponent exposes in order to shoot at you.
- An advantage for our laser tag system is that it control aspects of the game that cannot be done in paintball, or other laser tag systems for that matter. The game is controlled by an on-board computer that gives audible/visual signals to the player along with an LCD display that reports the player’s performance. It accounts for different game parameters, including time, kills, ammo, health, shots, who you shot, who shot you, and many other stats. In fact, we can provide a full report at the end of the session of each team and player performance.
- There is no doubt that paintball is higher adrenaline, due to the “fear factor” of getting hit by a paintball but it is not for everyone. For this reason, laser tag is more widely acceptable by a larger demographic. For example, the age range for laser tag is 5 years and up, while for paintball, the minimum age is 10.
- In the end, both are a great workout, both are very intense, both require team and good communication skills to accomplish the objective! Both are excellent team building sports!
