What You'll Get
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 Groupon: for $9, you get three hours of gaming (a $10 value), two sessions of indoor laser combat (a $12 value), and one Bawls energy drink (a $2.50 value) at Galaxy Gaming.
Galaxy Gaming supplies adventurous types with limitless amusement, sporting more than 50 games and an indoor laser arena. Scroll through Galaxy's ample list of games and while away three hours on selections such as Zombie Driver, Zombie Panic, and Zombie Bikini Car Wash. Pre-, post-, or—carefully—mid-round, replenish with sips from an energy drink to power up for two games of indoor laser combat. Galaxy’s indoor sessions craft realistic battlefields on which groups of friends, coworkers, and pygmy marmosets conduct role-playing scenarios. Missions include acting as a bodyguard for an assigned Very Important Person, ferrying them to safety while other designated ambushers attempt to eliminate the VIP; Running Man –style games in which hunters hunt snipers and snipers snipe hunters; and a team match similar to capture the flag, but with a steady flow of laser-powered alarums and excursions.
- If you're in Sioux Falls and are looking for a place to hang out with other people who enjoy playing games of any type, then Galaxy is the place to go. – Alek Bohlman, Examiner
- Gamers looking for a real-life experience similar to what's found in many popular video games can get it at Galaxy Gaming, where laser combat allows players to drop the controllers, put on a vest, seek out targets and shoot their own weapon in the style of an M4, sniper rifle or machine gun. – Sarah Reinecke, Argus Leader

About Galaxy Gaming
Armed with state-of-the-art lasers, players dodge enemy beams in a 5,000-square-foot arena awash in neon and black lights. During open-play sessions held Friday–Sunday, up to 14 participants weave their way through the obstacle-laden space on a variety of missions. The lasers also function outside, enabling Galaxy Gaming to frequently host outdoor missions in yards with enough obstacles.
Competition continues in the gaming lounge, where more than 200 computer and console games run on more than 60 PC, PlayStation3, and Xbox 360 stations. Gamers can play friends or other patrons with all-day passes or during Friday and Saturday all-night sessions, which last from 10 p.m. to 8 a.m. or whenever Mario throws out his back. Galaxy Gaming's resident techies also rid computers of viruses, build custom PCs, and create personalized gaming rigs.
