What is laser tag?
Laser tag is pretty much a futuristic, painless and cleaner version of paintball – you don’t have to worry about being hit by projectiles in uncomfortable places and there’s no paint or any other substance involved. Instead, it’s played with… you guessed it, lasers.
Each player wears an infrared-sensitive target and is equipped with a laser gun. The goal is to eliminate enemy players by shooting your laser at their target. It can be played either indoors or outdoors and, for added fun, role-playing elements can be added to it – a backstory, a specific scenario, characters, etc.
