What is Laser Tag?

A team or single player activity where players attempt to score points by ‘tagging’ targets, usually with a hand-held infrared-emitting targeting device. Infrared-sensitive targets are generally worn by each player and are sometimes integrated within the area in which the game is played. Since its birth in 1979, with the release of the Star Trek Electronic Phasers toy, laser tag has evolved into both indoor and outdoor styles, and may include simulations of combat, role play-style games, or competitive sporting events including tactical configurations and ping point game goals.

Is this a game for most ages?
Laser tag is popular with a large scale 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 roughhousing.

How much can this activity cost?
The game can vary in cost, depending on if it’s indoor or outdoor, or how much the company prefers to charge. It can be as little as $6.00 per person for 15 minutes of play time.
