World Extreme's staffers aim to emulate the feeling of battling inside an actual video game, altering the rules and methodologies of traditional laser tag with a wider ranger of highly programmable weapons, from simulation AK-47s to briefcase bombs. They even litter their 10,000-square-foot arena with respawn boxes, necessary to resurrect players should they be killed in the line of play.
Any veteran of the first-person shooter genre of video games knows that half the fun lies not only in blasting away at opponents, but also in customizing your loadout, memorizing level layout, and ultimately mastering team tactics. The creators of World Extreme aim to bring this experience to life, packing their 10,000-square-foot arena with dense urban-style terrain. They arm players with their custom radio-frequency-style weaponry, in the shape of M4s, MP5s, or AK-47s. They program each weapon to simulate specific circumstances, from free-for-all battles to team bomb-setting exercises. Unlike at most laser-tag arenas, when a well-placed shot knocks a player out of the game, they must scour the field for a respawn box to reenter play, adding extra stakes to the contest.
