So – What is laser tag?

Laser tag is a team or individual sport or recreational activity where players attempt to score points by tagging targets, typically with a hand-held infrared-emitting targeting device. Infrared-sensitive targets are commonly worn by each player and are sometimes integrated within the arena in which the game is played. Since its birth in 1984, laser tag has evolved into both indoor and outdoor styles of play, and may include simulations of combat, role play-style games, or competitive sporting events including tactical configurations and precise game goals.

Laser tag is popular with a wide range of ages. When compared to paintball, laser tag is painless because it uses no physical projectiles, and indoor versions may be considered less physically demanding because most indoor venues prohibit running or rough housing.

Laser Tag can be played as individuals or in teams, this is great fun when the adults get involved as they are usually targeted by the children, mercilessly!

Does Laser Tag hurt?

No Laser tag is completely harmless unlike paint ball( paintball) where a physical object is shot at your opponents and can often result in painful bruising. In fact the army uses laser tag guns instead of the real thing when they are training.

The other major benefit of Laser Tag over paint balling is that paint ball ammo runs out and extra is usually charged for whereas the laser guns might run out of charge but cost nothing to recharge and this process is very quick.
