Laser tag is perfect for enjoying quality time with friends or for training for futuristic warfare when vengeful iPods become self-aware. Prepare for the gadget uprising with today's Groupon: for $25, you get four games of laser tag, four sodas, and $10 worth of tokens at Lazer FX-Lazer Tag, in Fayetteville (a $52 value).
Boasting a recently upgraded 7,500-square-foot multilevel maze arena, the biggest in the Carolinas, Lazer FX-Lazer Tag offers adults, and kid combatants over the age of 3, a high-tech battleground for resolving Internet chat-room disputes. More than 30 luminescent warriors can fight for glow-in-the-dark glory simultaneously, divided into two to three teams. The matches last about 20 minutes each, with customers vying for laser dominance in a variety of game types including unlimited tags, no-reload unlimited shooting, and capture, a frenzied melee where tagged opponents switch teams. After each battle in the UV-lit, fog-filled arena, incandescent mercenaries each receive a detailed scorecard, which includes personal statistics, a list of who shot whom, and a helpful list of personalized insults for taunting the losing team.
Following laser tag, customers can relieve themselves of tokens in Lazer FX's 8,000-square-foot arcade, filled with four pool tables, skee-ball lanes, three air-hockey tables, and more than 120 arcade games including Area 51, Silent Scope 2, Ms. Pac-Man, and Pac-Man vs. Mothra.
Lazer FX–Lazer Tag
Scampering through Lazer FX–Lazer Tag's 7,500-square-foot labyrinth, combatants volley photons in exhilarating 20-minute skirmishes. Laser soldiers don luminescent vests and DayGlo bowties before entering the arena, where a mix of 30-odd friends and foes dodge blasts while darting from refuge to refuge. For groups of four, the battle extends out of the arena and onto the 8,000-square-foot arcade floor. Here, more than 120 games—including pool tables, skee-ball lanes, driving simulators, and air hockey—promote hand-eye coordination more effectively than soccer.
