The invention of the laser brought efficiency to computing and medicine and an element of realism to military leaders' constant games of tag. Enjoy a revolutionary romp with today's Groupon: for $11, you get three 12-minute games of laser tag (a $23.85 value) at Galaxy Tag in the Williamsburg Indoor Sports Complex.
Shouts of gleeful pretend battle ring across Galaxy Tag' 4,400-square-foot space-themed arena, where sharpshooters exchange laser volleys amid a neon-lighted intergalactic battleground with strategic obstacles and colorful decorations. Projected planets and nebulas adorn the walls, and black light illuminates both glowing barriers and players’ bright clothing, casting everything else into near-darkness. A 30-foot spaceship stretches to the ceiling and acts as excellent cover for launching a sneak attack or privately serenading a laser gun. In addition to traditional laser tag with lit vests and unlimited lives, two other game modes are available upon request. In stealth mode, players slip into the shadows without vest lighting and find their foes by relying on natural abilities and tendencies to shout back Marco Polo's last name. While playing in king-of-the-hill mode, each player morphs into a double-cat with 20 lives to lose.
Amid all the indoor turf-sports fields of the Williamsburg Indoor Sports Complex, there's one dark maze that's lit by black lights and glowing neon walls alone. In this shadowy space, players blast beams of light from their lasers, engaging in team combat and open play inside a 5,700-square-foot, space-themed arena. They dodge behind glowing wall lights, illuminated mock computer screens, and walls painted to resemble metal and rivets. Players as young as 5 can navigate the arena's black-lit halls, while the staff helps keep competition friendly during open play and birthday parties.
