Since its invention, laser tag has entertained as many children as laser hopscotch, laser jacks, and laser red rover have vaporized combined. Score three games of intense, beam-streaming competition with today's deal: for $29, you get three games of laser tag (a $24 value) plus a $35 arcade card at Shenaniganz in Rockwall. Though the three games of laser tag must be used by one person within a single day, the arcade card can be shared among multiple people and across multiple visits.
A zapping haven with historical awareness, the Shenaniganz laser tag arena pits up to 24 players against one another in the gloomy haze and vibrant lighting of a 12th-century Cambodian temple. Players can repurpose ancient temple ruins as opaque bunkers and unload some light on unsuspecting opponents. Safe and well maintained, the laser tag arena warms up trigger fingers for joysticked, button-mashing mayhem in the 7,000-square-foot arcade. Stocked with more than 100 games, the arcade zone is a sanctuary for prize-seeking ticket hoarders and friendly competitors alike. With $35 worth of credits, players might be able to swap jackpots for prizes ranging from candy to a life-sized portrait of Macaulay Culkin. While children go wild in the arcade, parents can relax at the on-site sports bar, with more than 40 flat-screen TVs and two 25-foot hi-definition movie screens. Shenaniganz also has a restaurant and state-of-the-art bowling center. No reservations are required for laser tag, though players can always phone ahead to ensure there's no private party or toddler rave occupying the arena.
Shenaniganz was voted Best Place to Play in D magazine's 2010 Best of the Burbs feature, and NBC Dallas-Fort Worth recommends it. Seven Yelpers give it a four-star average, and five Yahoo! Locals give it a 4.5-star average.
