Skirmishes typically run for 15 minutes, pitting the red team and the green team against each other in a tactical contest. During cease-fires, laser combatants can fire quarters into an assortment of arcade games.

Metric readings show highs of fun and excitement at The Fun Junction, where a live-action laser-tag arena awaits universal soldiers and a massive arcade tests button-mashing mettles. After extensive combat debriefings, laser taggers are let loose in an ultraviolet arena with dynamic battle zones and pulse-pumping music. A light haze obscures walls glowing with fluorescent paint, as nimble warriors make their way through disorienting obstacles to capture opponents’ bases. Enemy sentinels lurk around corners, eagerly anticipating laser-lit skirmishes and the perfect time to make “pew-pew” noises with their mouths.

Gusts of steam blasting out of vents, the eerie black eyes of neon-green aliens, and fiery-mouthed craters set the stage at Outer Zone Laser Tag’s 5,000-square-foot arena. Within this extraterrestrial combat zone, players scurry up a 175-foot ramp system and duck behind columns to avoid enemy fire or any existential crises that crop up when aiming the phaser at a best friend. Flickering of strobe lights and swirls of fog hamper vision as players crawl through tunnels and aim their lasers at opponents’ LED-lit vests, hoping for direct hits and big points. Before each session, groups learn the game rules in a briefing room and gear up with the help of a zone commander in the vesting room. Outer Zone Laser Tag also welcomes birthday parties, inviting celebrants to shimmy on a dance floor after taking down enemies in the arena.
