Promotes Teamwork and Cooperation!
- Lazer Tag sports include a wide variety of game types, from simple free-for-alls to team based games where cooperation and team strategies can help a team win the game. Players learn how to cooperate for the good of the team, instead of how to grandstand and belittle people.
Promotes Exercise and Health!
- It's very difficult to play Lazer Tag without moving. Games often include quite a bit of running and dodging for cover to avoid being tagged. Certain games might even include hill climbing and relay running. Playing Lazer Tag will help keep you healthy and active.
Infrared beams are NOT harmful!
- Lazer Tag is really just a Trademarked name (note the Z instead of an S in "Lazer") for toys by a certain company that use focused infrared beams of light to send signals. In this case, we use Lazer Tag Team Ops gear by Tiger/Hasbro. The infrared signals emitted by the taggers are less dangerous than a flashlight, and about the same as your TV remote, which uses the exact same basic technology. In fact, some TV remotes could be programmed to emit a Lazer Tag signal. The IR beams are not even laser focused. They are simply focused through a lens to reduce the spread of the beam, and increase range.
This is NOT a military simulation!
- We're not playing "laser kill" here. We're playing Lazer Tag. We don't wear camoflage or dark clothing, but encourage players to wear normal, everyday clothes. In fact, full camo is strictly prohibited! We understand camo shirts or pants are common clothing styles, and will allow one or the other to be worn, but if a player comes in full camoflage, they will be asked to change before playing. We don't do things to encourage the concept of killing or death. The games we play are for fun, and we use terms like "tagger" instead of gun, "tagged" instead of shot, and "tagged out" instead of killed. Yes, the taggers are vaguely gun-like, but in a very sci-fi way, with bright colors, and styling that looks nothing at all like a real gun. The sensors/targets are on the taggers so players are not aiming at the other players' chests or heads, but at the other players' taggers. The taggers conform to national, state, and local standards and requirements for legal toy gun stylings, to avoid any complications with law enforcement. We also encourage total compliance with figures of authority when confronted. We play to have fun, not to cause trouble.
