Instead of telling a friend "you're it," show them with a well-placed pulse of light aimed directly at sensitive vest-parts. Challenge a temporary frenemy to a rousing match of beam-blasting with today’s deal: For $15, you get four rounds of capture-the-flag laser tag at LaserNation (a $30 value) in Sterling, Edgewood or Ultrazone in the Eastpoint Mall. Select your battle zone, then prepare to serve and volley laser bolts across a darkened, fog-filled court in a tense match to see who is master of the laser. You can split the games among multiple beam slingers, but all four must be used in the same day.
Ultrazone’s super-high-tech T-System allows up to 45 players to play at once (for a virtual Crisis of Infinite Lasers, if so desired). Buckle into the transformative vests and prepare to be transported into another dimension. As you work up a sweat ducking behind obstacles and belly-crawling to safety, you'll mastermind effective strategies for taking possession of the coveted flag. Between donning your laser garb and returning weaponry to its resting rack, each round runs about 30 minutes. Laser tag is an affordable way to live out video-game hero dreams, work out tensions with your roommate, or live out your fantasy of starting a ragtag militia of space marines with Mark from accounting.
Instead of cartoon re-runs, treat the kids you baby-sit for to a more active adventure for the imagination. Or get your friends to grab Groupons and make it a social excursion—laser tag is great for double dates, an outing for your small jazz combo, or quintuplet grudge matches. Though this Groupon can’t be combined with group or birthday reservations, there’s nothing to stop you and your crew from showing up and playing together.
Not valid in conjunction with group reservations or parties.
Ultrazone Laser Tag in Baltimore
Ultrazone Laser Tag might be familiar to fans of The Real World, whose cast members—fed up with drama—blew off steam by ducking colorful laser beams in the sprawling multilevel arena's fog-filled maze. There's enough space for 45 vest-clad players to face off at one time, and plasma monitors let the next wave watch the game as they eagerly await their turn. The expansive recreation center also hosts sleepover parties that grant exclusive overnight use of the laser-tag facilities, the plasma-screen theater, and the room that's inexplicably full of doorknobs. Outside the arena, an arcade keeps synapses ablaze with video games, air hockey, and golf simulators, supplemented with slices of Papa John's pizza from the cafe.
