At Equinox Laser Tag, infrared beams fly as players battle to complete tactical objectives on a 7,000-square-foot indoor battlefield during fast-paced games. Equinox equips each soldier with a high-tech infrared laser-lobber designed with the weight and feel of an MP5 submachine gun. A military-grade red-dot scope atop the gun ensures pinpoint accuracy when unleashing bursts of lasers at opponents and scary-looking shadows. Matches last 8–10 minutes as players eliminate each other and complete battlefield objectives. Equinox's laser-blasters communicate with each other via radio frequency, announcing each well-placed shot with an exclamation of "Good Hit!" and each time you're hit with a death monologue from Hamlet. Outside the warzone, players fraternize around an open-air patio, arcade, and snack bar, and visitors watch all the action from seating around the edge of the arena.
Equinox Laser Tag
Equinox Laser Tag is helmed by a team of laser-tag aficionados who have been playing since the sport's inception in the mid-80s. In their 7,000-square-foot indoor arena, they let visitors choose from a wide range of scenarios to play games of capture-the-flag, humans vs. zombies, or kittens vs. laser pointers among a variety of inflatable obstacles. Their facility also features outdoor battlefields where players can raid a mobile laser-tag trailer, equipped with enough barricades and infrared taggers to create a tactically challenging combat zone that suits up to 20 combatants.
