Since the popularization of the laser handshake, the laser hug, and laser diplomacy, laser warfare has ended and glow-in-the-dark space terrain has been recognized as an independent state. Eradicate holdout antinationalists with today's Groupon: for $4, you get two games of laser tag (an $8 value) at Laser Kingdom, with locations in Farmingdale and Coram.
A dark, fog-filled platform and heavy arsenal of cutting-edge laser artillery set the stage for Laser Kingdom's spacious arena, where warriors of ages 5 and up can partake in a rollicking test of wits and strategy. After a quick debriefing on safety and rules, laser warriors don reflective armor, holster bolt-blasters, and get whisked away to light-bound combat. Players seek and dodge their enemies, hiding behind the local topography of steel obstacles, black-lit promontories, and carpet moats. With each penetrating beam of enemy armor, the computer tracks the team's scores until the moment a victor is declared, upon which each individual team and hero receives an in-depth computerized assessment and four neon-purple hearts.
Those seeking an exciting rainy-day activity and those who’ve grown weary of violent Nerf raves will appreciate the opportunity to enjoy the shadowy company of friends and family without the fear of getting plunked by DJ Strobelite's foam crossbow. Laser Kingdom's friendly staff takes a careful approach to ensure the ensuing warfare is safe, gleeful, and free of illicit android fireflies.
Though Laser Kingdom offers lower rates on weekdays than on weekends, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
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.
