October 17, 2017 by The Fun Empire Team
Laser Tag is a gameplay involving guns that emit fire infrared beams. You might not have noticed this but there are many types of laser tag games available today. From an indoor themed laser tag to laser tag played outdoors, you’re sure to have a good time! But before starting on any laser tag game, here are just 5 fun facts to know about it:
1. History of Laser Tag
In 1979, laser tag was introduced but it was played as a game of Star Trek phaser. Then it soon evolved into a game that can be played both indoors and outdoors. The indoor arenas are completely dark and have walls with glow in the dark stickers which you to hide from your opponents. As for the outdoor laser tag, you’re often surrounded by nature and natural winds as opposed to air-conditioned rooms. Instead of walls, there will be bunkers for you to hide from your enemies.
2. Laser Tag Accommodates Large Groups
If you have a large crowd, opt for laser tag as one of your activities. This game can accommodate up to 12 people at a time. That’s a lot of people in a pitch! But it’s still possible. We live by the phrase: The more, the merrier! Laser tag also has different game modes – 10 lives, 25 lives, and the individual where you’re all on your own. Be warned that laser tag games are super fast! So keep your eyes peeled on your enemies and ensure you don’t get attacked.
3. Laser Tag Is A Non-Contact Game
Unlike most team building games, laser tag doesn’t require for you to have skinship with another person. That means no physical contact with anyone sweaty. On top of that, no one has ever gotten injured or hurt themselves during a laser tag game. Unless you’re a little clumsy, be more careful!
4. Laser Tag Is Surprisingly A Great Workout
We know that not many enjoy hitting the gym as workouts drain all of your energy. It can be a little tough to go on if you don’t have anyone motivating you by your side. Don’t fret, The Fun Empire is here to ensure that you have an enjoyable time sweating it out. Laser tag is not only about shooting and guns. It’s a game that ensures you to constantly run around. And that’s without you realising it as you’re trying hard to dodge the laser from hitting you. In just 10 minutes, you’ll find yourself perspiring. You could go on for another 5 rounds and that would wrap up your workout session. Furthermore, you’re doing it with your friends or colleagues so it would be fun!
5. Laser Tag's Equipment is Light-weight And Easy
Most laser tag items are heavy as they have a gun for you to hold and a vest for you to put on. With The Fun Empire’s laser tag, it’s all lightweight. We have our guns sprayed in 2 colours for you to differentiate between teams. Also, the guns are similar to the size of a standard nerf gun. On top of that, no vests are required in the game. This makes running around, dodging, and hiding much simpler as there are no added weights on your shoulder.
