The Most Popular Attraction for Entertainment Venues

Laser tag has been a hit in the entertainment industry for decades, and there’s a good reason why. It’s not just a game; it’s an experience that keeps players coming back for more. So, what makes laser tag arguably the most popular attraction for entertainment venues?

A little history first… Laser tag has captured the hearts of people of all ages. What began in the 1970s as a method to simulate combat situations for soldiers without causing physical harm evolved into a popular recreational activity. From kids to adults, everyone loves the thrill of running around, tagging opponents, and scoring points. It’s like stepping into a real-life video game, and that excitement is contagious.

High Throughput And Capacity

So, why add laser tag? Entertainment venue owners know the importance of keeping lines moving and guests entertained. Laser tag checks both boxes with its high throughput and capacity. With quick rounds and a continuous flow of players, venues can accommodate large crowds without long wait times. Most operators run 4 games per hour, so a 30 player system can cycle through 120 customers in a single hour.

Immersive, Story-Driven, and Social

These are the 3 core tenets that make a successful attraction. Players are transported into a different world (immersive), whether it’s a futuristic space station or a post-apocalyptic battleground. These themed environments, coupled with interactive elements and story-driven missions, create an unforgettable (and story-driven) experience. Plus, laser tag is inherently social as a team game, making it perfect for groups and parties.
