Laser Tag!

3 Dec

Last night, some friends and I went to play laser tag at Grand Central Station, off of Highway 6. I hadn’t played laser tag since I was young, so it was going to be a fairly new experience for me. I had heard good things about it, so I went it with high hopes. Here’s a couple of the things that I learned during my laser tag experience:

1. It’s a lot of fun! I really enjoyed playing laser tag. Since there were only 5 of us in our group, we played individually, every man for himself. This is good, because you can shoot anyone (excluding yourself). I would also like to try playing with teams. I think it would put a little more edge in the game, because you have to work as a team. The downside to playing on teams would be that no one would want me on their’s, which brings me to my next point.

2. I’m not very good at laser tag. I may have had fun, but that doesn’t mean I’m good. I’m not an ultra competitive person and I don’t mind losing, which enhances my not-so-stellar performance. I was also playing with 4 highly-competitive people, so should it suprise me that I finished 2nd to last? No, not really.

3. It’s a workout! Laser tag will wear you out with 10 minutes of non-stop running, hiding, going up and down ramps, and adrenaline. I was huffing and puffing 5 minutes into the game. You may think you won’t get all worked-up, but you’ll get in there and get into the game, and get tired. This is why I’m categorizing laser tag as recreation.

4. Wear appropriate clothing. If you really want to be hardcore, dress in all black. It’s a black light setting, so don’t wear white or any light colors, because you will glow. Also, wear good running shoes. My friend wore boots with a small heel. While they were very cute, they weren’t laser tag appropriate. You will run, trust me.

5. It’s afforadable! If you go on a Thursday night after 9:30, you can play unlimited laser tag and mini golf for $12. Individual games are $7. You may not have enough energy to play more than one game. To see more deals, go to Grand Central Station’s website at grandstationent.com.
