LaserForce, Wellington

Overview

Suitable for roughly 5 years and over (but see below)

This is like a big, elaborate game of tag, played in a darkened maze with lots of flashing lights, music and sound effects. Kids need to be able to fit the suit and be comfortable moving around in a dark room, hence the recommended minimum age of around 5 years old. Older kids will have a better understanding of how to avoid being ‘hit’ by someone else’s laser gun and will just understand the rules and skills required more but all ages can still have fun.

Missions in the arena last for 7 minutes and there’s a briefing beforehand which explains how to play. There’s the option of playing as an individual or part of a team with people you do or don’t know. Adults can pay to play as well as kids so it’s something for the whole family to join in with, if you want. Alternatively, non-players can relax at the onsite cafe and watch Laserforce players from the viewing gallery. It’s pretty noisy though as the rest of the place is dedicated to arcade style games!
