Since the popularization of the laser handshake, the laser hug, and laser diplomacy, laser warfare has ended and glow-in-the-dark space terrain has been recognized as an independent state. Today's Groupon lets you and a comrade eradicate holdout anti-nationalists: for $14, you get two games of laser tag for two people at Zero Gravity in Roessleville (a $28 value, including tax). This Groupon expires in three months. You must be at least seven years old to play.
Bright florescent lights of electric lime, sapphire, and scarlet illuminate Zero Gravity's 5,000-square-foot multilevel battlefield. Each laser- tag game at Zero Gravity lasts 15 minutes, and up to 40 laser sharpshooters can put their precision to the test at once. After a pre-game instruction and gear-up session, participating players are divided into two teams (up to 20 players each) and unleashed upon the space-themed interior, where loud music awakens hibernating adrenalines faster than even the fastest roosters can put on a pot of coffee. Thereafter, a friendly fight ensues between team members as they explore the futuristic funscape, dodging and dispatching low-level lasers while developing fresh batches of functional dance moves.
Each player at Zero Gravity is outfitted with an advanced laser-tag pack from Zone Systems that contains a vest and a laser gun (total pack weight is four pounds). LED sensors serve as targets for incoming fire, and built-in speakers inform pseudo soldiers about the goings-on during the melee, yelling "Good shot!" whenever a player scores a hit or lands a date with Pat Benatar.
Groupon must be used within a single visit. Not valid for group reservations.
