Getting your family together for a fun game of laser tag is an easier way to keep track of the kids than ear tagging, which generally requires tranquilizer guns. Gather your herd sans violence with today's Groupon: for $6, you get three games of laser tag (a $12 value) at Zaps Zone, located on Hammertown Drive.
Zaps Zone bills itself as California's largest indoor laser-tag arena, occupying more than 6,200 square feet of space for laser-based embattlement. The multilevel playing field utilizes blacklights to illuminate opponents as players lie in wait behind ramps, neon obstacles, or in the stomach of a dead tauntaun. Laser lads and ladies are divided into two teams of varying colors, with identical team zones that provide enough room to shoot, dance, and rumble your way through an intergalactic revival of West Side Story . Zaps Zone changes its game format every three months, and the current theme is Spy & Rapid Fire, so fans of overt and slothful warfare games may have to be patient.
Even though laser tag is a fun activity for all ages, Zaps Zone designed its facility to be especially appealing for adult guests; it can accommodate up to 30 players at a time, making it an ideal team- building exercise for corporations preparing for a hostile takeover by laser-pointer-wielding professors. Zaps Zone also has an arcade for players that want to practice their space-shooting skills with a rousing game of Asteroids and 50 in. TVs for battle-weary sports fans daydreaming of a time long ago when ray guns were still an integral part of every hockey game.
Up to 30 players can battle in Zaps Zone's 6,200-square-foot multilevel arena. They can choose from 12 different game modes, including base mode, free-for-all, and team free-for-all, all of which are more fun and challenging than using the guns to pick up disks in games of tiddlywinks. Between games, vistors nosh on pizza and hot dogs at the snack bar and catch up on the latest sports scores on the three 50-inch televisions. Meanwhile, tykes hop around in the inflatable bounce castles.
