Laser tag is like a production of Hamlet: it's exciting, it's demanding, and by the end everyone has pretend-died. Take laser arms against a sea of troubles with this Groupon: for $20, you get three-game passes for two people (a $39.98 value) to three DC-area laser-tag arenas: Panther Family Laser Tag in Sterling, Ultrazone Laser Tag in Falls Church, and Laser Nation in Sterling.
Panther, Ultrazone, and Laser Nation are among the largest laser-tag arenas in the DC area and employ high-tech scoring systems to determine each game's victors. Select your battle zone, then prepare to serve and volley laser bolts across a darkened, fog-filled court in a tense match to see who is master of the laser. At all three arenas, a Nexus Generation system tracks the movements of more than 60 players and displays their scores in real time for those watching in the lobby.
Buckle into a wireless-enabled vest and prepare to be transported into another dimension. Players bravely bound through the narrow passageways and hidden corridors of these multilevel facilities, competing for high scores and the affections of glowworms. Each adrenaline-filled game offers an affordable way to live out video-game-hero dreams, work out tensions with roommates, or live out a fantasy of starting a ragtag militia of space marines with Mark from accounting.
Ultrazone Laser Tag
Movable walls, luminous rocks, mirrors, ramps, and unexpected dead ends. These are just a few of the obstacles players face at Ultrazone Laser Tag, a multi-level arena that, much like a spring-break DJ’s apartment, is always flooded with black light and fog. Before separating more than 66 players into mulitple teams and setting them loose in the arena, a game master delivers rules and moves teammates to the vesting room, where they grab laser guns and flashing vests. As the beat of pulsing music hammers the arena, players stream into the field, launching beams at opponents and attempting to seize their strongholds. When players are hit they aren't eliminated from the action; a computer keeps a running tally of points throughout the mission and awards champion status to the team with the highest count after the game. The facility also includes an arcade and a snack area.
