Laser taggers scramble across Play Extreme Sports & Store’s outdoor field all day and night on Saturday and Sunday, seeking tactically advantageous vantages from which to zap at their opponents. Designed as a less splattery alternative to paintball, paintball laser tag employs real Tippmann 98 Custom markers outfitted with infrared and radio-frequency technology, meaning they can fire up to 500 feet and pick up light-jazz stations in the process. During one-hour sessions, duos and quartets play unlimited games, all the while under the watchful eye of a game official, who referees and sets up each mission. An LCD screen on each marker tracks vital stats, such as ammo, game time, health, and Congressional Medals of Honor. Visitors are advised to wear comfortable clothing for running and kneeling, and must sign a waiver before joining the fray.
