Frequently Asked Questions

Is laser tag dangerous?

No, laser tag is not dangerous. Laser tag is a non-contact sport that uses transmitters (LEDs) placed on multiple points of a player worn vest. Each vest is accompanied by a sensitivity rifle that has a focusing lens, and a very narrow field of view that can detect the transmitters only when pointed straight at them. The rifle acts like a remote, such as the one used to change the channel on your television that sends a signal when the rifle is aligned with the target on the vest.

How does laser tag work?

Laser tag is a game played by all ages 5 and up. Each player wears a vest that has transmitter targets attached throughout and is accompanied by a sensitivity rifle that when pointed on target at another player’s transmitter will send a signal to award points for the successful players. Laser tag is a timed match, can be played on teams or individual play and in different themes like capture the flag.

How much space do you need for laser tag?

For an optimal play experience, 24 – 30 players are recommended in an arena space of 3,000 – 4,500 square feet. The average size of a birthday party is about 12 kids, so if you have a 30 player capacity, it allows you to fit 2 birthday parties per game with space for walk-in traffic.
