Breaking Down the Basics of Lasertron Laser Tag

Last updated 3 years ago

Laser tag is a family-friendly indoor game that offers hours of fun and exercise for participants of all ages and skill sets. If you have yet to experience the excitement of Lasertron, these game basics can help you learn how to become a laser tag expert in no time at all!


Laser tag can be a highly active and extremely competitive game, but safety should always come first when playing it. Given how dark it can be in the Lasertron room, be sure to watch your step when moving from one area to another. Running could lead to trip and fall accidents, which can quickly ruin your night of fun. To protect yourself from injury, walk instead of run. Also keep in mind the safety of others when moving about the Lasertron room. Dark corners can easily mask the presence of others.


The goal of laser tag is to deactivate as many opponents as possible. While lingering in a corner may help you remain hidden from your opponents, it can hinder your ability to find and deactivate them. When you move around the Lasertron room, you are more likely to find other players, deactivate them, and score points. Plus, when you keep changing your position, your opponents will have a harder time deactivating you.


Strategy is important in laser tag. Some players find that grouping up with others can increase their chances of taking down opponents and accumulating points. Prior to beginning your laser tag game, you might want to discuss a team plan with others in your group. Of course, once it gets down to one or two other opponents, it’s every person for himself!
