Tag is one of the few childhood games that has been improved by the addition of lasers, alongside hide-and-seek and eye surgery. Lighten up playtime with this Groupon.
$48 for 12 Laser-Tag Adventure Passes (Up to $96 Value)
Each 20-minute laser-tag match welcomes as many as 36 participants into a black-lit, tropically themed arena, outfitting each person with a Nexus FEC vest and phaser. After an instructional video, the matches pit two teams against each other to see which group can score the most points before time expires. Comfortable clothing and closed-toe shoes are suggested, although not required, and laser tag is recommended for guests aged 6 and older. Laser-tag adventure passes may be used by multiple people and across multiple visits.
Though this merchant sometimes offers a discounted price online, this Groupon is still the best deal available.
Exhilarating music pulses amid the remains of a downed cargo airliner, its wreckage scattered across 4,000 square feet of fog-filled tropical beach. Two teams navigate through these surroundings—dodging strewn pieces of cargo, abandoned huts, and a miniature volcano. Black lights cause Laser Island's neon hues to burst to life. The red-orange glow of the volcano's lava, the vibrant green of the painted palm fronds, and the cerulean blue of the walls' ocean horizon all shine alongside the green flashes of streaking lasers. After roughly 20 minutes, the guests emerge and discover which team scored the most points.
Beyond laser tag, the family-friendly entertainment center features a number of activities for virtually all ages. A nine-hole tiki-themed miniature-golf course challenges hand-eye coordination, and the CoCo Climb station allows adventurers to scale a 20-foot coconut tree while safely supported by a weight-bearing harness and an invisible force field. The arcade section tempts passersby to spend a few tokens on games such as Ms. Pac-Man or Time Crisis 3, and certain games reward players with tickets that they can redeem for prizes at the Ticket Hut. In between games or laser-tag matches, Laser Island refuels visitors with a snack-bar menu that includes everything from pizzas and toasted sandwiches to salads and buffalo wings.
