Laser Mayhem – Saturday 25th February 2017
Spend two hours in your team running around various locations, scouting out the enemy or defending your base from attack!
Unlike other venues, Laser Mayhem is out in the open surrounded by woodland, tanks, forts and plenty of places to run and hide!
We’ve confirmed with the provider that they support and welcome those from the trans / LGBT community.
The game is very simple to play; all you have to do is shoot your foes using military-style replica versions of pistols, assault rifles and sniper rifles. The goal of the game is also very straightforward; all you have to do to win the game is to accumulate more points than your opponent team.
Outdoor laser tag is highly exciting, partly due to the realistic game environment. The playgrounds are designed to accurately portray real world scenarios. Some play zones are designed with the theme of cities ravaged by war, complete with broken buildings and deformed landmass. The crumbling high-rise buildings and the network of alleyways around them make an excellent backdrop for high-octane urban warfare. Some others may resemble tropical jungles with dense foliage cover and deep dugouts, which are heavens for stealthy, tactical skirmishers. Still others may have artificial hills with sparse foliage, creating tactical challenges. In fact, the settings can be realistic enough to resemble a real war field in all respects, and an accidental fall from the ledge of a half-broken building can seriously hurt you. This is why it is imperative that you keep your eyes open at all times. The weapons will not hurt you, but the playground itself may very well do that, if you are unnecessarily careless or cocky.
What is a good shooting game without great weapons, right? The guns used in laser tag games can bring your innermost fantasies come to life. True, all guns are nothing more than realistic replicas of standard military-grade weapons, but the realistic craftsmanship of the weapons is impressive, nonetheless. The guns are available in different models as well. Do you prefer light weapons? Pick up two pistols in two hands and plow through your adversaries in ultimate dual-wielding combat style. Or how about picking up the assault rifle for awesome commando-style takedowns? Or if you fancy being the feared sharpshooter, do not forget to pick up the trusty one-shot-one-dismissal sniper rifle. The weapons cannot hurt you or your buddies, as these can only fire harmless infra-red beams. So, do not be afraid to aim high, and go for perfect headshots.
Laser tag is unlike any other game in terms of excitement. Imagine the thrill of landing a headshot on the leader of the opposing team, while he does not even get a chance to tag you. Think of the adrenaline coursing through your veins as you drop half of your opponent team single-handedly with your assault rifle. That too, without any guilty conscience on your part, since you know that none of them are actually getting injured. Was there ever a better way of enjoying realistic combat?
So, the next time you feel like shooting up some foes, don’t reach for your game console. Get to the nearest laser tag range with your buddies, instead. This is as close to reality as combat can get. Don’t miss it!
