Though laser tag began as a government program to prepare the citizenry for a robotic takeover, it was recast as a recreational game after officials confirmed that Terminator was just a movie. Separate fun from fiction with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get a laser-tag-outing package, which includes four games of laser tag ($20), a hot dog ($2.50), a large soda ($3), and 20 arcade tokens ($5) at Long Island Laser Bounce in Levittown (a $30.50 value).
Long Island Laser Bounce's colorful facilities welcome recreationists of all ages with a variety of excitement-inducing diversions. Four rounds of laser tag take two teams through a glow-in-the-dark arena, testing eyes and camaraderie with black-light-illuminated carpets, glowing painted aliens, and insults from vanity mirrors. Cosmic combatants duck behind rows of neon-accented pillars, reaching for a winning score as they aim at opponent's target-bearing vests. Post-battle, arcade tokens enable investments in stuffed-animal stock at the sprawling arcade, which challenges guests to games ranging from interactive racing to reflex-based arcade classics that spout streams of redeemable tickets. Long Island Laser Bounce welcomes groups of friends or feuding families disguised as friends for walk-in laser tag games, entertaining thrill-seekers until midnight every night.
Long Island’s Laser Bounce
Long Island's Laser Bounce houses a quintet of interactive, family-friendly attractions within its massive indoor facility. An intergalactic-theme laser-tag arena shelters gunsmiths as they blast opponent targets and players during 15-minute games, and the bounce arena's assortment of inflatable slides and bouncers engages kids as guardians surf free WiFi from the seating area's comfy couches. In the Ballocity arena, blasters, vacuum cannons, buckets, and minor-league pitchers launch thousands of soft foam balls throughout the play area's multilevel platforms. For classic recreation, the center's arcade brims with pinball, air hockey, and a 35-foot-long ticket-redemption center. The various diversions can be enjoyed during drop-in play times, or as part of celebrations with the purchase of one of several party packages.
