Please read the FAQ’s if you have not visited us before so you can have a full understanding of how we run our tag!
Laser Tag is a high-tech sport where players wear computerised vests and have handheld phasers and attempt to achieve a high score by tagging other players, base stations & other targets within the amazing arena.
After players have been briefed and strapped on their vest, the game is started by one of our Marshalls. The pack is activated and allows the player to fire their phaser at opponents and devices within the Arena. Each pack has sensors on the phaser (Front and back of the pack and on the shoulders). Tagging these areas will gain points to the attacking player while deactivating the tagged player for a few seconds. After the game has finished, the packs shut down automatically and players return to the armory room. Score information is downloaded from the packs to the central computer and displayed on the scoreboard.
Enclosed shoes must be worn. No sandals, jandals, gumboots, or open-toed shoes are permitted. Also, be aware that if you wear white you will be more visible to your opponents.
Bowlarama New Plymouth can accommodate up to 30 players in each game. Like aged groups will be mixed in together. Exclusive use of a Mission time slot is only available by booking and paying for 30 Battle suits.
There is a minimum age of 6 years old. And a minimum height of 110cm.
There is no maximum age to play the game – even grandparents can have a go.
Players under 14 years of age will need an adult (18 years or old) to be on the premise for the duration of the event.
Laser Tag can be played at your own pace. There is no reason to be rushing around the areas (in fact, we don’t allow you to run). As long as you are comfortable with light walking for 15 minutes and you can walk up our ramps, then you’re probably fit enough to play. Of course, as only you can be a judge of whether you are able to play – the final responsibility rests with you.
Laser Tag is played in a darkened environment, but it is not pitch black. The arena is well lit with backlights which allow the fluorescent paints & materials to glow brightly. Your eyes soon become adjusted to the light level so you are able to see quite well.
No. The lasers used in the game are very low power and only flash for a very brief time. The equipment has been tested to meet appropriate standards of safety for lasers around the world.
No. Laser Tag is harmless. The only way you know you have been tagged is when your pack tells you (vibrates) and it has shut down.
Laser Tag may be played as either an individual game or as a team game. Your game Marshall on the day will decide on the format of play. Teams are also randomly selected by the computerised system, so you may not be on the same team as the people you arrived with. This has its benefits, it enables you to tag them!
