Before laser tag, most high-tech entertainment consisted of playing chess against a computer and chucking a victorious computer into a bog. Play nice with technology with today's Groupon: for $10, you get three games of laser tag at Ultrazone Laser Tag.
Ultrazone Laser Tag facilitates games in a fog-filled court that occupies 5,000 square feet on two levels. The main arena confounds up to 36 players at a time with a host of sense-boggling features such as movable walls, black lights, reflective surfaces, and kiosks that force players to do their taxes. Each round revolves around capture-the-flag-style play, and computers keep track of each player's score.
Players as young as 7 need only a vest and laser to join the fray, and friendly referees prep players by explaining the game's rules and basic strategies. After the buzzer signals the end of each game, former opponents can further settle scores in a full arcade or clink glasses and cheesy slices at the snack bar (not included in today's Groupon).
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, 5,000-square-foot arena that, much like a spring-break DJ’s apartment, is always flooded with black light and fog. Before separating up to 39 players into teams and setting them loose in the arena, a game master delivers rules and moves teammates to the vesting room, where they grab lasers 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 packed with video games as well as air-hockey tables, pinball, and a food and snack counter.
