  • Laser Web Dayton
    Through pulsing music, a booming voice announces the score. The dim light flickers and the vest around your torso flashes your stats. Your heart thunders like the steps of a river-dancing giant as you scamper up two levels to four soaring platforms, blasting beams toward opponents with your DarkLight phaser along the way. This scene is a common one at Laser Web Dayton, an arcade and laser-tag arena decked out with the latest equipment and effects. Visitors also dodge luminous rays in the laser maze, ablaze with green lasers that players must dodge quickly, or solve puzzles and riddles to flee the Mad Science Escape puzzle room. The Mad Science escape room fuses the interaction of online puzzle games, the excitement of a timed game show, and good old fashioned detective work to create a unique group adventure. Up to 10 participants are presented with a series of puzzles and clues that require group collaboration and individual contribution to escape.

  • Scallywag Tag
    Scallywag Tag's arena dazzles eyes with a black-lit, neon-tinged pirate ship and 18th-century Caribbean village, which provides a labyrinth of fluorescent walls for marauding swashbucklers. After being split into two competing crews, participants receive a vest, a phaser, and instructions to tally as many points as possible by tagging opponents, swarming the enemy's home base, or holding a referee hostage until he or she doctors the score. The score itself is broadcast on wide-screen LCD scoreboards, but those who are too busy taking out the adversary to look at them can take heart knowing that at the end of the game, the referees announce the winning team. Outside the fast-paced laser-tag arena, Scallywag Tag encourages visitors to recharge with a drink or a slice of pizza from the snack bar. The arcade sections also distract patrons by featuring perennial classics such as air hockey as well as new favorites, including Time Crisis 3 and Find That W2 Form. The West-side location additionally lures younger passersby with a pirate-themed jump house and a 35-foot-long slide in the family entertainment center. The West-side’s black-light miniature golf tests hand-eye coordination skills, leading guests through a gauntlet of 18 holes that similarly embrace the pirate theme.
