Vest-wearing commandos duck and weave through the labyrinthine arena of Laser Kingdom, seeking shelter from the crossfire amid eerily glowing scenery. Squads pull their equipment from the wall-mounted racks of the staging area in preparation for two head-to-head matches. Black lights flood the area, illuminating neon paint and opposing players, and the thud of the music acts as an exciting backdrop to the battle, though players will have to provide their own laser noises and Predator quotes. An electronic scoreboard keeps a running tally of each team’s score, and each player receives a printout after the game showing team and individual statistics, such as number of unnecessary tactical rolls performed. After the mission is complete, squads can catch some R&R in the arcade, feeding handfuls of tokens to the adorable game machines. Open laser tag is held every day of the week.
Rising fog, flashing lights, and thumping techno beats set the scene for the laser-tag battles that unfold between stealthy bands of warriors beneath Laser Kingdom’s black lights. Players suit up in specialized vests, clutching light-emitting weaponry as they enter the field where an overhead scoreboard tracks team scores and the game’s best squeals of surprise when taken out by a well-hidden opponent. Afterward, patrons receive handouts that break down their individual performance that they can pore over to strategize for the next round or ditch in favor of playing one of the onsite arcade games.
