Since its invention, laser tag has entertained as many children as laser hopscotch, laser jacks, and laser red rover have vaporized combined. Score multiple rounds of intense, beam-streaming competition with today's deal: for $10, you get five games of Secret Agent LazerTag at Family Fun Center, the only tri-level laser-tag arena in Nebraska (up to a $24.95 value). Though this Groupon must be used in one visit, the four matchups can be split between friends.
Upon entry to Family Fun Center's neon paradise, visitors feel the awakening of an inner Imperial Stormtrooper, only without the cursed principle of evil marksmanship. Buckle into the transformative vests and prepare to be transported into another dimension. Explore three levels of distinct floor plans in double 0 style and find the best angle of beam propulsion for enemy expulsion. With four 10-minute missions (up to $4.99 each), secret agents can tip-toe about the lower-level nuclear bunker, scatter through the elevated warehouse, or snipe from the third-level high rise. Along with different themes on each floor, music on loan from James Bond's MP3 player pulses as flashing special-effects lights inject enough adrenaline for certifiable extremeness.
Four games are a sufficient amount of laser-taggery to work out lingering work stress or build up a thick, protective shell of happiness. Laser tag is also a wondrous way to live out video-game hero dreams, resolve tensions with your spouse, or live out your fantasy of starting a ragtag militia of space marines with Mark from accounting.
- This is definitely the first place my family wants to go whenever they come in town and have little kids with them. Lots of stuff to do in FFC. – adebisi_lives, Yahoo! Local
- Every time we go to Omaha we stop by to occupy ourselves for a few hours. The prices are reasonable for an arcade and the staff is always really friendly. They have a lot of unique and fun games there that you don't see everywhere. – Rebecca R., Insider Pages
The Family Fun Center XL
On a sweltering day with the air abuzz with mosquitos, Eddie Reznicek stood on a miniature golf course marveling at how many people were outside putting. Determined to create a more comfortable mini golfing space, he opened The Family Fun Center XL in Omaha in 1982, where guests could play indoor golf and nearly 100 video games in the arcade. These days, a new facility shelters a black-lit 18-hole course themed around video-game heroes, heroines, and the windmills who loved them, and the arcade enthralls gamers with classics such as air hockey, skeeball, and four-player Mario Kart on 27-inch flat-screen TVs.
At the Lazer Maze, participants channel their inner spy while swiftly snaking through alarm-system lasers. This spy theme also is evident in the three-level laser-tag arena, where players dodge enemy fire amid flashing lights to soundtracks from James Bond movies. Elsewhere, a 2,500-square-foot arena littered with bunkers, crumbling brick walls, and sniper towers accommodates 7-minute paintball games or bazooka-ball battles.
