Laser Tag is Making a Come Back

· No Comments

If you are my age, then it is likely you remember when laser tag first came onto the scene.  There were laser tag facilities popping up all over the place, and before long there were tournaments and birthday parties every couple of weeks.  Then the market was flooded with laser tag areas, from the large chains to the mom and pop places, you could find a place to play a game of laser tag almost as easily as you could find pizza.  However, before long this trend slowed, and then it seemed like paintball replaced the laser tag phenomenon and many of the places to play laser tag started to dry up.

That’s why I was surprised when I received a birthday invitation to attend a party in a laser tag facility on North May called Laser Quest.  I wasn’t sure what to expect since it had been years since I had played laser tag, but shortly after the first game started I found myself enjoying the game immensely.  It was exactly as I remembered it and I loved running around finding new and interesting ways in which to shoot my friends.

If you find yourself in need of a blast from the past while at the same time picking up some cardio exercise, then you might book yourself a trip to the nearest laser tag facility and enjoy a game or two.
