Fashioned by the same owner of Orlando Paintball, Battleground Orlando equips competitive marksmen with advanced laser-gun systems and six indoor and outdoor fields. Battleground Orlando's assorted armory boasts weapons that discharge single blasts or 10 shots per second, a 1,000-foot firing range, and receivers that alert each player when they hit somebody, when somebody hits them, or when other players stifle sneezes within a 100-foot radius. Designed around themes such as urban landscapes and the military, each field befits various scenario games that spice up laser contests, such as capture the flag or last man standing. Each gunsmith can devour a complementary pizza slice from Papa John's after two-hour sessions spent steeped in trenches, ascending towers, and strategically cowering under strobe lights scattered throughout the facility. Battleground Orlando is open every day from noon to midnight and hosts special after-hours rounds until 6 a.m. on Friday and Saturday.
Battleground Orlando Laser Tag
At first glance, Battleground Orlando’s grassy Field F may look suspiciously unoccupied, dotted with only trees, a few wooden forts, and some stacks of tires. But the regulars know better. They sit still as statues, gripping their laser guns and surveying the landscape for peeking heads and dashing bodies. This mix of strategy and stealth resembles a video game, and that’s by design. The course, inspired by the video game Call of Duty, is one of six courses at Battleground Orlando Laser Tag, each with their own mental and physical challenges, ambiance, and 99-life-granting cheat codes.
Keeping with this realistic aesthetic, the laser-tag facility hands out advanced lasers designed for military use and outfitted with a red dot sights, sight rails, infrared beams, and RF signals with a 1,000-foot range. Players can partake in team battles as well as scenario games such as “capture the flag,” “last man standing,” and “whiten my teeth before my big job interview.” The facility, which also houses Orlando Paintball, is the largest indoor and outdoor laser tag facility in Florida, and it's open daily from noon to midnight and until 6 a.m. on Friday and Saturday.
