Wondering if this fast paced, high action game is for you? Wonder no longer. Below we outline the benefits of laser tag for individuals or groups.
1. Teamwork and Communication Skill Building
Players can choose from a variety of team games, depending on number and ability level of players. Players need to recognise their teammates and work together to achieve a common goal, such as gaining points, destroying bases or scoring goals. As the teams progress, the games become more challenging so players have to communicate and share their knowledge of the game to benefit their team.
In every game of laser tag, players tag each other to improve their own score. When a player is tagged, they are deactivated for a few seconds and lose points from their own score. Players are continually practising sportsmanship and turn taking throughout each game. At the end of each game players compare their scores on the scoreboard and of course, there can only be one winner or one winning team. Each game has a different format and allows for different players or teams to improve their score or even win.
3. Camaraderie and Group Development
Whether you scored high or low, your laser tag games create fun memories and stories to share amongst the group or even back at the workplace. Players feel a sense of camaraderie and belonging within their teams as the sport is all-inclusive and favours a variety of skill sets other than physical strength or speed. Players also feel at ease at Zone 3 and comfortable with the group, attributing to a much more personal experience. Groups can BYO food and players aged 18+ can BYO alcohol to turn your laser tag session into the celebration or social outing of the year!
4. Fitness and Endurance
Although laser tag is all-inclusive and low-impact on the body, it is still a high-action game that gets the heart rate up and players moving quickly around the maze to avoid being tagged. Contrary to other team sports, laser tag doesn’t require brawn or strength and therefore provides an opportunity for players with other skill sets to succeed.
Whether you are an individual or a member playing in a group, you are sure to have fun as well as gain these prominent benefits of laser tag. Why not give a game a go and see for yourself?
