Laser Tag Frequently Asked Questions

Is this paintball?

Print Friendly

No, this is a game similar to paintball but our equipment does not shoot any projedctiles. Our equipment emits an infrared beam of light at distances of over 1000 feet. This makes the game extremely fun because the range of the untis allows players to engage each other more than two football fields away from one another. The game is about stealth, teamwork and fun.

Does it Hurt when you get “hit”?

Print Friendly

NO, the system uses harmless infrared technology (similar to your tv remote control) to deliver the “hit”, which causes your sensors to light up and you laser unit to emit a sound.

What if it rains?

Print Friendly

We will only play if it is not raining. We can always reschedule an event.
