At Laserdome, up to 40 troops at a time gear up for battle by donning vests and phasers in an alien-themed laser-tag arena. Players traipse across ramps and perch in balconies as they patiently wait to attack opponents, much like a lion crouches in the tall grass before shooting a gazelle with a laser. During play, fun power-ups such as rapid fire, spy mode, and freeze ray tilt the competition in favor of the lucky players who discover them.
After the rounds, players can celebrate victory or brush off defeat in the arcade, which features Xbox games, Dance Dance Revolution, new pinball arcades, and scores of other games that dispense tickets that can be traded for prizes. Laserdome also showcases laser-light shows with professional lighting in themes such as Pink Floyd. Future spies hone their skills in the laser maze, which uses lasers, mirrors, haze, and other challenges to test players as they compete for the high score or see who can refract the most light off their uncle’s forehead. Laserdome is available for parties for all occasions, and every Saturday a live band serenades players as they enjoy unlimited laser tag and a laser-lights show.
Groups of two or four can swivel putters during the day or night with a round of mini golf on the Village Square– or Safari Trail–themed course, which obstructs hole-in-one putts with exotic animal statues. Both packages dish out 45 tokens guests can use at the arcade or the indoor batting cage, which features 40-foot ceilings and a grandstand looming 140 feet from home plate to nab homerun balls. Guests can amble toward the snack bar for a pitcher of ice-cold soda and a large pizza to feed hungry brain cells with fraction problems.
The sounds of cheery competition float across Grand Slam USA's 30,000-square-foot arena, which teems with athletic challenges, a vibrant bounce houses, and other diversions. A glow-in-the-dark miniature-golf course leads putters through nine holes of ominous pirate-themed obstacles, including a ramp into a skull's jaws, a hole fraught with sharks, and perilous unswabbed decks. Adrenaline-soaked games of laser tag lead beam duelers through mazes, around partitions, and over platforms, where they rack up points for hitting special targets and rivals. At the end of each bout, players receive individual score cards that detail high scores and lines flubbed during MAS*H reenactments.
Mid Atlantic Grand Prix's indoor track brings to life dreams of zipping along Monte Carlo or the Circuit of The Americas—just on a smaller scale. Drivers aged 8 and older strap on helmets and man the wheel of their go-karts, covering up to 6 miles during each eight-minute ride. In addition to drop-in races, the facility also hosts bachelor parties, birthday fetes, and other group outings.
Drivers rev their engines across three separate raceways at The Go-Kart Track, where thrill seekers can split their time between high-speed chases and rounds of mini golf. The family-oriented entertainment center's three distinct go-kart tracks cater to drivers young and old. The junior track safeguards youngsters with an automatic braking system every time they release the gas pedal, and the family track lets people ride shotgun in double-seater cars. Finally, the drift track—coated in a special powder—allows drivers 54 inches and taller to slip and slide around turns, drifting like their favorite racecar driver or continent. Aside from its automotive pursuits, The Go-Kart track features a mini-golf course with nine professionally designed holes peppered with obstacles such as cacti and tires.
