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 $10, you get two games of laser tag and two sodas at Lazer FX–Lazer Tag in Fayetteville (a $21 value).
Boasting a recently upgraded 7,500-square-foot multilevel maze arena, Lazer FX–Lazer Tag offers adults and kid combatants (older than age 4) a high-tech battleground for resolving Internet-chat-room disputes. Up to 30 luminescent warriors battle for glow-in-the-dark glory in 20-minute matches that include modes such as 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 can peruse a detailed scorecard that includes personal statistics, an account of who shot whom, and a helpful list of personalized insults for taunting the losing team. Following laser tag, customers can quench their futuristic thirsts with two sodas ($2 value each) before plunging into Lazer FX's 8,000-square-foot arcade, filled with three pool tables, skee-ball lanes, three air-hockey tables, and more than 120 arcade games.
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.
