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. Enjoy laser tag without twinges of impending doom with today's Groupon: for $14, you get an unlimited-play laser-tag package at The Woods Laser Tag in Ocoee (up to a $29.95 value).
Beam battlers run, duck, and take aim at targets while playing laser tag on one of the many courses at The Woods Laser Tag’s 9,000-square-foot facility. Choose from a variety of unlimited 15-minute games, including capture the flag, during which teams must guard their own flag target, zap the flag of the other team, and explain the concept of lasers to Betsy Ross. During individual games, each player stands alone, zapping opponents and destroying targets to gain points. Players have a limited number of laser bullets in the dead aim game and must have a quick eye, a steady hand, and a pocket abacus. After a day of beam barrages, bleary battlers can choose to carouse in the arcade or continue competition cruising bumper cars, which are not included with the laser-tag package.
