Getting your family together for a game of laser tag is an easier way to keep track of the kids than ear tagging, which requires tranquilizer guns. Gather your herd sans violence with today's Groupon: for $20, you get two hours of game play for you and a friend at SpecOps Live Play in Oakdale (a $50 value). SpecOps is Central California's only outdoor laser-tag course, hosting three acres of pain and projectile-free first-person-shooter shenanigans. Laser-gun-wielding wild men can participate in a multitude of ever-changing missions, such as Team Deathmatch, Zombie, or Rescue Forgotten Pie From the Windowsill. Complete these adrenaline-pumping adventures with SpecOp's high-tech cache of faux weapons, equipped with real-time hit feedback and 69 different gun-simulation settings, including the 1992 novelty T-shirt gun mode. Games encourage teamwork and competition, with a stable of elite and experienced laser taggers willing to give tips and strategies to recruits still wet behind the ears. SpecOps welcomes players of all skill levels and ages, although kids under the age of 18 will need a guardian's signature. Check SpecOp's calendar before making reservations for camouflage-clad combat.
Five Yelpers give SpecOps Live Play a perfect five-star rating:
- This is a must for laser tag. All ages will enjoy. I brought a group of 10 kids from 10 to 15 y.o , they didn't stop talking about it for 2 days. – Thomas S.
- The people working there were great as well! They were really friendly and fun. They set up and facilitated various games for us. They even joined us in the last few games. – Annie C.
