Though laser tag began as a government program to prepare the citizenry for a robotic takeover, it was recast as a recreational game after officials confirmed that Terminator was just a movie. Take precautions anyway with today's Groupon: for $10, you get three games of laser tag for one at Ultrazone Laser Tag (up to a $20.25 value).
Inside Ultrazone Laser Tag's 4,500-square-foot facility, players lob laser bullets at one another while scurrying down narrow corridors or sharpshooting from elevated platforms. Warriors strap on chest packs, click off the safety of fully charged laser guns, and tuck a photo of Mom into pockets before scattering around the indoor arena, playing for one-man survival or in teams. Phosphorescent walls and confusing blinds challenge even the most seasoned war-game heroes as they navigate the expansive facility. Areas of the arena showcase themed artwork, allowing participants to snipe in evergreen forests or debate working-class rights amid flats painted in the style of Metropolis.
Ultrazone Laser Tag's rates fluctuate throughout the week.

One of the reasons why Ultrazone Laser Tag's owners are so enthusiastic about the activity is for the team building it fosters among its participants—and for the chance to win. At the 5,000 square foot arena, laser taggers track each other down through dark, narrow tunnels with glowing violet, red, and neon orange black-lit murals that change the feel from room to room.
The movie-set-like scenery places players amid such backdrops as a surreal forest or a spaceship motif that prepares gamers for inevitable teatime with aliens. As firing begins, strategy and teamwork guide players through the adrenaline-fueled game, which can help to build strong bonds during a birthday party, a corporate event, or a fun day out with family and friends.
