Before laser tag, most high-tech entertainment consisted of playing chess against a computer and chucking a victorious computer into a bog. Play nice with technology with today's Groupon: for $16, you get four games of laser tag at Laser Legend in Live Oak (up to a $32 value). This Groupon can be split among four people.
Black lights illuminate Laser Legend's two-tiered arena as teams trade shots across a 5,000-square-foot war zone built to resemble an epic space battle. Gamers snap into heavy-duty ballistic nylon vests and flash lasers across interior terrains to see who gets to sit in the front seat on the way home. Tracked on a monitor and on the guns’ full-color information display, real-time scoring helps players keep track of leaders during 15-minute contests that come in a variety of play styles, including capture the flag, team elimination, and solo. Foam-core barriers and obstacles cushion gamers as they dive for defensive position and evade booby traps that take the form of mines, 14-foot robot bases, or packages labeled "free pizza.” Though not included with this offer, Laser Legend also hosts a 4,000-square-foot arcade space with 22 attractions, including old-school air hockey, Dance Dance Revolution, and Guitar Hero.
Though Laser Legend sometimes offers discounts on their website, this Groupon still provides the best deal.
Laser Legend's black-lit multi-level arena surrounds players in a scene that seems straight out of a science-fiction movie. Glowing planets and stars backdrop the 5,000-square-foot space, where fog creeps out from behind neon-blue walls and 14 foot tall robots guard bases. Up to eight teams fire lasers across two levels, competing during match types such as capture the flag or tickle the flag until it says uncle. The phosphorescent ambience also extends to the Glo Golf course, where alien forests and caves surround golfers as they line up putts. The course employs a multi-hole system that allows Laser Legend’s intergalactic greenskeepers to change the cup locations each week. Elsewhere, more than 40 games, such as Dirty Drivin, Star Wars Battle Pod, Walking Dead, Fishbowl Frenzy and Guitar Hero.
The aromas of fresh-baked breadsticks lure visitors into the onsite restaurant, Noble Roman's Pizza, where chefs fry chicken wings, assemble italian-beef subs, and slide pepperoni pizzas into the oven. This casual Italian cuisine also fuels stomachs within Laser Legend's party rooms, where guests can watch satellite TV and birthday kids eat a breadstick for every year they've had teeth.
