Though hiding from opponents deep within the jungles and cave mazes surrounding ancient Incan temple ruins would normally induce acute panic attacks, it's actually part of the fun at LazerRush.

Once inside the 5,800-square-foot arena, they slalom through dark and smoky corridors on missions to defend their base, conquer their competitor's base, and confuse as many vagabond cats as possible.
After each game, scores reveal where participants placed, which opponents they hit, and which opponents hit them in turn. Outside the arena, meanwhile, scores keep spectators abreast of the action inside, as do large plasma monitors that stream each game.
