How to Play Laser Tag
Before we get to the venues, you might be wondering how you play laser tag?
Laser tagging is an exhilarating team-based game that combines strategy and precision. The objective is to tag opponents by aiming and firing your gun's infrared beam at their vests' sensors. The sensors are typically located on the chest and back. The game usually takes place in dimly lit, maze-like arenas filled with obstacles and hiding spots. Move stealthily, using cover to your advantage, and communicate with your team to coordinate attacks and defences. Points are scored each time you tag an opponent while avoiding getting tagged yourself.
What's the Right Age for Laser Tag?
Laser tag arenas can be scary for little ones, particularly as many are dimly lit and have lots of flashing lights and lasers. It's recommended that kids be at least five to six years old to play laser tag in Melbourne.
