Laser tag is in trend right now and people of all ages, starting with children aged 6 – 7 years old, want to play it.
As you have previously seen on the other pages, it has been around for decades now and is being played and enjoyed by people all over the world. In addition, why wouldn’t it be? It is a game that helps you relax and have fun with friends, that helps children develop their social and teamwork skills, their strategical thinking, their cooperation and thinking out of the box.
To those that look at it just from the narrow point of view that this is a game that teaches children to fight and enjoy shooting one another, this is not the idea behind of the game. Moreover, there are various games out there that are with guns and this is not the only one.
The main thing to remember about laser tag is that it is not about guns and you have to teach your children that this is not just about guns, try not even think about the guns in this game. It is a physical activity, which children and adults alike can play it, that helps form bonds and helps develop motor skills and strategical thinking. All of the above is a plus other games do not offer.
Unlike other field games that come at rather big prices, this is not that expensive. Mainly because both companies that organize laser tag games as well as those that play it that do not need very varied equipment to play it.
It is sufficient to have a laser tag gun and a laser tag vest in order to be able to play the game. While the laser companies provide these, the other parts of your outfit like dressing or shoes, are in no way more special than your everyday outwear. What you should follow are some basic rules – come dressed in dark colours so that you are not an easy target and have shoes that do not slip.
The prices differ from company to company, from location to location, from type of game, from outdoor vs indoor and from the number of people playing. Laser tag birthday parties are a great deal as usually they come in packages and a game per person gets less than if you would go there and bought a game per person. Their prices depend on if you want any extra things to borrow that make the laser tag game more interesting – burst smoke grenade, camouflage overall, laser tag grenade, laser tag knife, specs ops protective shield etc or if you want drinks and food for the kids.

Week time, from Monday to Friday evenings are better priced.
Depending on your needs, it is recommended to look for the best offer out there. However, offers do exist; laser tag companies compete against each other and try to gain as many loyal customers as possible so it is up to you to have enough patience to look for the best that suits your needs.
