Answers To 3 Common Questions About Laser Tag

Mike Mckinney

If you would like to play laser tag, but are unsure of how to do so outside the most obvious rules, you are not alone. Laser tag appeared in its earliest form in 1979 and since then has been enjoyed by countless players. However, there are several questions that new players often ask and below, you will find three common ones.

#1-What Should You Wear?

The subject of clothing is obviously going to play a huge role in your success at laser tag. First, you should plan to be as comfortable as possible, so stretchy clothes are a good idea. Dark colors that allow you to blend into the shadows and corners will play a big role in your success.

However, you may find that the laser tag facility is like many movie theaters, in that it is often very cold. By the time you are running around, ducking and trying to stay a step ahead of everyone else, you may find that the cool air conditioning is no longer keeping you chilly. As a result, consider light layers that you can remove or add as needed throughout your time at the facility. In addition, you need to be as quiet and stealthy as possible, so comfortable and quiet shoes with good support will be helpful.

#2-How Should You Move, To Limit The Possibility Of Being Tagged Too Early In The Game?

When you realize that the marker on your chest is like a beacon calling everyone's attention to you, it quickly becomes obvious that minimizing that marker whenever possible is an important strategy. Therefore, consider how you walk.

Instead of walking in a forward line, consider moving from side-to-side. That movement will make it harder for the other players to hit the bull's eye and as a result, you may be able to continue playing longer. This will also help you if you see someone taking aim at you, as you are essentially making a smaller target.

#3-Is It Ever Okay To Take A Break?

The need to take a break is a bit controversial. Obviously, if you are injured, sick or for any reason can no longer continue, you should never risk your health for the sake of a game, even an amazing game like laser tag. However, if you are feeling a bit winded or are just thinking that perhaps you should have gone to the gym a bit more in recent years, your teammates are likely to appreciate your continued presence.

One idea that could help you involves knowing the terrain of the area you are playing in. Specifically, watch for dark corners and areas where you can discreetly hide with your back to the wall. Be very careful and observant when approaching those spots, as other players will often use them as a place to ambush unsuspecting laser tag participants. If you can find a corner to hide in without being zapped out of the game, you may find that it is also a good place for a short break.

In conclusion, laser tag is a game that can be enjoyed by individuals or groups. Since its rules can be changed according to the needs and preferences of its participants, there is a lot of flexibility when playing. By knowing the answers to some of the most common questions about laser tag, you are likely to find that playing the game is easier than you expect.
