New Open Play Session Format at Lazer Warz!

By | News | No Comments

We are trying something new to add more fun and excitement to Lazer Warz!

Starting on Sunday, August 20th, we are revamping our schedule to setup 90 minute laser tag sessions throughout the day.

Sessions will start at 11 AM, 1 PM, 3 PM, 5 PM, and 7 PM.

Costs will be $24.95 for adults, $21.95 for 12 and under, and $18.95 for 8 and under.  For the kids rates, at least on adult will need to play for every 2 kids.

If requested, in advance, we will also do a special 9 PM session ($9.95/person, and there is a 6 player minimum).

Parties will also be able to start at the same times, with party rooms available after the play is finished.  Check or party calendar to actual availability.  The party room adder will be reduced to $35.  All other party prices will remain the same, but we will have set times we can offer parties.  Just use our normal party booking form here to request your party!

For groups smaller than 8, you can request a time up to 2 weeks in advance.  A non-refundable $5 deposit per person will be required to hold your space, with the balance due prior to playing.  Use our contact us page and tell us the time and number of players (and ages) and we will send you an invoice you can pay online to reserve.  You must arrive at least 20 minutes prior to your start time, or you will forfeit the deposit.  We will open up availability for walk-ins 15 minutes early.

Use our sign-up sheet here.

You can still purchase 30 minute or 60 minute sessions, but they will be limited to available time left in the session.

As a special offer, the first person to sign up and pay will get their session for just $9.95. Deposit emails will be sent when 6 people sign-up online and credit for the special rate will go to the first one who pays.  Otherwise it goes to the first person who signs up on the day of session at our location.

When you sign up for a session, you can get any other session, that day, for $9.95.  So come and play all day.

Parties have just gotten better at Lazer Warz.

You have lots of choices for parties at Lazer Warz.  Sometimes it can be confusing.

Laser Tag Only

First, for those on a budget, you can choose our battle simulation only parties.  This will be 1-hour of laser tag starting at 8 taggers for $136.

You can make it your group only for an additional $60.

If you have more people, you can upgrade to a 10, 12, 16 or 20 person party.  Prices are listed here.

Did you want more?

A step about is reserving our party room for an additional $50.  We provide the room for 2 1/2 hours, including tables, camouflage table clothes, fridge/freezer, shelves and unlimited use of our X-BOX, Play Station, and Wii systems during your party.  What a great deal.  You bring the food, plates, silverware, and people.

Or… we can do it all for you with our new Deluxe Party offering.

Our parties, like our facility will be military themed!

We will provide the pizza’s of your choice, soda, and a military themed cake for your special occasion, and all the party plates, etc needed.  All you will need to do is bring the guests and presents.    Each guest will also be given a 1/2 hour pass, good for 30 days from your party date for even more play. This will be our party room ($50 charge) + an additional $20/person.

You will receive one large pizza and 1 2-L Soda for every 4 people in the package.

We do require booking to be completed one week prior to the event for this option.

If you prefer a different theme, just let us know and we will try to accommodate.

All other options can be done within 4 days.

So book your party today!

Monthly Passes Now Available

By | News | No Comments

Did you enjoy your time playing laser tag with us?

Are you looking to do this on a regular basis?

It is great fun and it’s great exercise. But the price can add up in a hurry!

How about a monthly pass deal?

You can play ALL-DAY, ANY-DAY with limited exceptions.  Come and go as you please!

To do this everyday would cost up to $900 if you just walked in.  But we are going to save you $750.  That’s right… the price is only $150 $100 a month. – PRICED REDUCED

What is the fine print on this “too good to be true” offer.   Well, there are some conditions…

1. The pass is valid only during Open-Play times and cannot be combined with any other deal.

2. You cannot use the pass during certain parties – our calendar will say “NO TAGGERS AVAILABLE”

3. If we have a full house, you will be the first players asked to sit out a round or two while our hour and half-hour purchasers play.

4. Unlike our daily ALL-DAY pass, there is no 90 minute guarantee of play with the monthly pass.

5. These rules apply even if you use them in conjunction with a purchased party.  In other words, if you use the monthly pass for a party you booked for extra taggers that day… we do not guarantee those taggers will be available and we will not reserve them for you.  Your players may be bumped if other walk-in guests arrive and they are not usable during “EXCLUSIVE USE” parties at all.

That’s it… that’s the limits.

So for $150 $100 for a month, you can play all month.

Want to save even more?  Buy a June pass today and you can purchase your July pass for just $50 more!

Real Life Video Game

Helen looked over her kitchen island and sighed. She had a problem. Her daughter had been having a rough time adjusting to high school. In middle school, she’d had a bunch of friends and had been part of a few clubs. But her friends had ended up at a different high school and she hadn’t really made any new ones at this school. Lisa had gotten quieter in the first few weeks of the school year, talking less and less about her day. Now all Helen got was a subdued “fine” when she asked how school had been.

Helen just wasn’t sure how to help. There were a couple kids Lisa had said hi to when Helen dropped her off in the morning, but she hadn’t asked anyone to come over after school or asked to study with someone. She hadn’t even really talked with her old friends since classes started. She’d simply shut herself up in her room.

With another sigh, Helen went back to opening the mail. Bill, bill, junk, bill. She opened an envelope and was surprised to find a card inside. “Help celebrate Jacob Collins’ birthday at Lazer Warz!” it read, listing an address and a date. Collins was the last name of one of the moms Helen had met at the PTA meetings. She seemed to remember a shy-looking boy waiting for her after the meetings who Lisa had waved at once or twice.

“Hey Lisa?” Helen said, knocking on her door. “Can I come in for a sec?”

“Yeah,” Lisa called back.

Helen pushed open the door, finding Lisa lying in the bed, a gaming controller next to her. “Hey, you got an invite to a birthday party on Saturday.”

Lisa shrugged. “I think everyone in my class was invited to that. They’re just being nice.”

Helen sat on the bed next to her. “It could still be fun. Looks like they’re doing laser tag. It’s like those games you enjoy but in real life.”

Lisa rolled her eyes at her mom’s comment but she looked contemplative. “I really think it’d be good for you to meet up with some kids outside of school,” Helen added gently. “If you hate it, you can tell me you feel sick and I’ll take you home and I won’t make you do something like this again. But I think you might like it.”

Lisa was quiet for a few moments but finally she nodded. “I can’t promise to have fun. But I’ll go,” she says. Helen squeezes her hand and then heads back downstairs.

**************

“Okay so we’ve got Red Team vs Blue Team,” the Lazer Warz employee said, explaining the game to the teenagers waiting in front of him. Helen saw Lisa, looking nervous, standing with her team. Everyone had been introduced as the arrived so the kids knew who they were playing with.

“Well that’s it. Go ahead and everybody go in. The game will start in just a minute.” The kids dispersed into the blow-up obstacles. Helen saw a brunette boy stop Lisa and they conferred before finding the spots they wanted to start. When the game started, the boy and Lisa worked as a team, taking people out while everyone else seemed to scatter. They covered each other and at the end, it was their team that won. Helen saw the first genuine smile she’d seen on her daughter’s face in a long time.

Lisa was practically bouncing as she rushed up to where the parents were sitting. “Mom, Mom did you see us? We were like bam! And they were like ah! And that was so cool!” The boy she’d talked with before called her name and she ran back for another round.

In the end, the parents practically had to drag the kids away at the end of the party. Lisa had a small group chatting with her as they headed for the door. Helen hung back a few moments, giving them longer to talk.

As the other kids dispersed, Helen and Lisa head toward the car. “This was so awesome and Sam and Tammy asked if we could hang out this week and we totally have to do this again. Can we come back next weekend? We could see if Andrew and Hannah want to come too and…” She continued talking, hardly pausing for breath.

Helen hid a smile. Thanks Lazer Warz.
