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. Pay homage to Ah-nold without tedious trips to the ballot box with today's Groupon: for $23, you get an outing for two at Xtreme Adventures Family Fun Center in Lutz (a $46.81 value, including tax). The outing includes:
- Two Crazy Car rides (a $10 value)
- Two games of laser tag (a $14 value)
- One large cheese pizza (a $14.25 value)
- One pitcher of soda (a $5.50 value)
Families and friends descend upon Xtreme Adventures Family Fun Center for an expansive entertainment smorgasbord, including bouts of laser tag and rounds of ricocheting in bumper cars. Visitors can eschew conventional backyard tag and ring-around-the-donkey for games of laser tag in the more than 6,000-square-foot multilevel arena. Competitors of all ages can take aim in the battleground, which is stocked with replicas of ancient chambers draped in vibrant plants and secret passageways leading to used-car lots.
Visitors can then strap in for a round of bumping and bashing in Crazy Cars. Colliding drivers can spin a full 360 degrees across the black-lit demolition course. After a full day of friendly competition, pairs can refuel with a feast of pizza and soda at the Xtreme Cafe & Bar and reflect upon adrenaline-inducing bumper-car crashes and who could reload their laser beam fastest.
Xtreme Adventures Family Fun Center
The high-energy activities under Xtreme Adventures Family Fun Center’s roof instigate rushes of adrenaline in technicolor environs. In the multileveled, 6,000-square-foot laser-tag arena, teams of combatants track down their opponents as they navigate serpentine passageways, duck around forest plants, and circumvent digital quicksand. Padded Crazy Cars spin 360 degrees as drivers ricochet around the rink, while on the adventure turf, visitors of all ages play dodgeball, basketball, and soccer. After their adventures, they can sample snacks from the Xtreme Cafe & Bar, including pizza, sandwiches, and wings.
