  • Can we play Laser Tag as a team?

    Yes. Laserzone Laser Tag can be played as either an individual (solo) or team game. We are unusual as a team sport because we have a three team format: we have red, blue, and yellow teams competing at the same time within the arena. This gives players some interesting new ways to think about tactics and teamwork while providing for more “targets” for each player.

  • I have played Paintball – does Laser Tag hurt when you are tagged by another player?

    Absolutely not! You know if you have been tagged when your pack shuts down. Your pack lets you know this has happened in three ways using three of your senses: sound, sight, and touch. Firstly, the pack will play a sound that indicates you have been zapped. Secondly, the front of your pack contains a buzzer, so you will feel the pack vibrate. And thirdly, the pack will flash bright orange.

  • What other protective clothing is required?

    We recommend that players wear casual clothing (not a singlet) and we insist on players having enclosed shoes. No other padding or special clothing is needed as Laser Tag is a non-contact sport.

  • Are protective glasses required to play?

    TNo. The lasers used in the game are very low power (a fraction of the power hand-held laser pointers use) and are computer controlled to only flash on for a very brief time. It is a natural reflex that the eye will blink when presented with any intense light (for example, a photographic flash) and this reflex adds to the protection of the eyes.

    The equipment used has been tested to meet appropriate standards of safety for lasers around the world.

  • Isn’t Laser Tag played in the dark?

    Laser Tag is played in a darkened environment, but it is not pitch black! The arena is well lit with blacklights which causes the abundant use of fluorescent paints and materials in the arena to glow brightly. In addition, the arena is also lit by coloured spotlights and floodlights, as well as other lighting effects. After a couple of seconds, your eyes will have adjusted to the light level and you will generally be able to see quite well.

  • Do you need to be physically fit to play Laser Tag?

    Laser Tag can be played at your own pace. There is no reason to be rushing around the arena (we actively discourage this!), so as long as you are comfortable doing some quiet walking for 12 minutes, which may involve going up some ramps, then you are probably fit enough to play!

    Of course, as only you can be a judge of whether you are up to the game, the final responsibility rests with you.

  • Are there any age restrictions on playing Laser Tag?

    We recommend a minimum age of 6 years for players. This is due to the weight of the pack that younger children have difficulty carrying for a full length game.

    There is no maximum age to play the game – Bring the entire family!

  • How many people can play Laser Tag at one time?

    Laserzone Dandenong can accomodate for 35 people playing at one time.

    The minimum number of players is two.

  • How long does it take to play a mission?

    Each mission consists of 12 minutes of actual arena time. We allow a 3 minute change-over and kit-up time. For your first mission, there will also be a 5 minute briefing where Laserzone staff will explain the operation of the packs and arena devices as well as outlining the safety rules.

    When you play more than one mission, you will have a 15 minute rest between your missions.

    When planning your visit to Laserzone, please allow yourself a minimum of 30 minutes for a 1 mission visit, 45 minutes for a two mission visit, and 1 hour 10 minutes for a three missions of laser tag.

  • How do you play Laserzone?

    After players put on their packs, the players move into the arena and the missions is started by the central computer. The packs will activate allowing the player to fire their phaser at opponent packs and arena devices such as base stations. Each pack has sensors on the front, back, shoulders and phaser. Zapping these areas will award points while deactivating the tagged opponent for a short time. At the end of the mission, the packs shutdown automatically and the players return to the kit-up room. Score information is displayed on the scoreboard in the foyer. You can even get a print-out your own individual scorecard!

  • What is laser tag?

    Laser Tag is a high-tech sport where players wearing computerised vests or packs and handheld “phasers” attempt to achieve a winning score by zapping opponent players, base stations, and other targets within a playing arena or maze.
