Getting your family together for a fun game of laser tag is an easier way to keep track of the kids than ear tagging, which generally requires tranquilizer guns. Gather your herd sans violence with today's Groupon: for $14, you get four games of laser tag at Shotz Lazer Tag and Billiards (a $28 value), located on Austin Bluffs Parkway.
In a futuristic environment, Shotz Lazer Tag and Billiards serves up family-friendly entertainment for light slingers of all skill levels. In each 20-minute round, players are briefed on rules and recommended strategies, then launched into the fog-laden arena for intense light-to-light combat. Zigzag around an obstacle-laden territory of barriers, police beacons, energizers, and sentries, or wildly fire your laser blaster at any vest-wearing player who moves. Afterward, Shotz Lazer Tag gives each player a scorecard packed with statistics, such as accuracy, shots fired, direct hits, and the number of times a player shouted "You shall not have been temporarily deactivated in vain!" If your love for laser tag burns out, check out any of Shotz's other offerings, such as a full arcade and billiards tables.

Shotz Lazer Tag & Billiards
The 2,000-square-foot laser-tag arena at Shotz Lazer Tag & Billiards swallows up to 24 players in its black-lit barricades, spitting them out for tests of manual dexterity in the arcade and at pool tables. During games of tag, laser beams slice though a shroud of fog and hearts race in time to pumping music. The staff not only explains the rules of laser tag and equips players with gear, but periodically reconfigures the terrain to prevent frequent visitors from gaining a home-field advantage. Marksmen receive scorecards documenting the number of shots fired, their accuracy, and the location of any stains on their shirt after emerging from the black light. Nearby, the arcade rings with electronic yelps emitted by the gaming machines, and the crack of cue balls echoes over the felt of 9-foot Gold Crown pool tables.
