Outdoor Laser Tag – For High-Octane, Realistic Combat

Tuesday, November 1st, 2011 | Permalink

by Lee A. Smith | ezinearticles.com

Have you ever enjoyed an outdoor laser tag game with your buddies? Laser tag is a game that you can either play alone, or with a team of your buddies. The game is very simple to play; all you have to do is shoot your foes using military-style replica versions of pistols, assault rifles and sniper rifles. The goal of the game is also very straightforward; all you have to do to win the game is to accumulate more points than your opponent team.

The Environments

Outdoor laser tag is highly exciting, partly due to the realistic game environment. The playgrounds are designed to accurately portray real world scenarios. Some play zones are designed with the theme of cities ravaged by war, complete with broken buildings and deformed landmass. The crumbling high-rise buildings and the network of alleyways around them make an excellent backdrop for high-octane urban warfare. Some others may resemble tropical jungles with dense foliage cover and deep dugouts, which are heavens for stealthy, tactical skirmishers. Still others may have artificial hills with sparse foliage, creating tactical challenges. In fact, the settings can be realistic enough to resemble a real war field in all respects, and an accidental fall from the ledge of a half-broken building can seriously hurt you. This is why it is imperative that you keep your eyes open at all times. The weapons will not hurt you, but the playground itself may very well do that, if you are unnecessarily careless or cocky.

The Weapons

What is a good shooting game without great weapons, right? The guns used in laser tag games can bring your innermost fantasies come to life. True, all guns are nothing more than realistic replicas of standard military-grade weapons, but the realistic craftsmanship of the weapons is impressive, nonetheless. The guns are available in different models as well. Do you prefer light weapons? Pick up two pistols in two hands and plow through your adversaries in ultimate dual-wielding combat style. Or how about picking up the assault rifle for awesome commando-style takedowns? Or if you fancy being the feared sharpshooter, do not forget to pick up the trusty one-shot-one-dismissal sniper rifle. The weapons cannot hurt you or your buddies, as these can only fire harmless infra-red beams. So, do not be afraid to aim high, and go for perfect headshots.

The Game

Laser tag is unlike any other game in terms of excitement. Imagine the thrill of landing a headshot on the leader of the opposing team, while he does not even get a chance to tag you. Think of the adrenaline coursing through your veins as you drop half of your opponent team single-handedly with your assault rifle. That too, without any guilty conscience on your part, since you know that none of them are actually getting injured. Was there ever a better way of enjoying realistic combat?

So, the next time you feel like shooting up some foes, don’t reach for your game console. Get to the nearest laser tag range with your buddies, instead. This is as close to reality as combat can get. Don’t miss it!

Advanced Technology: Next Generation Laser Tag … just like computer games … taking the world by Storm

Monday, June 20th, 2011 | Permalink

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
(Free-Press-Release.com) October 23, 2010 —
Laser Tag is changing the face of the entertainment business. Delta Strike, a New Zealand based company, is the world’s no. 1 supplier of quality and innovative laser tag systems and equipment. For those thinking of setting up a successful family entertainment centre, theme park or laser tag business and staying

ahead of the competition today can be challenging. Consumers are getting more and more demanding, expecting to be ‘thrilled’ with continuously new experiences. However, there are some

very profitable Laser tag businesses emerging, who are winning over the laser tag market simply because they decided to start playing a different game: that of next generation laser tag … a new

laser tag experience that is taking the world by storm.

Why? Because it is addictive … Just like computer games, players want to play again and again – accumulating more points and ‘shooting’ their way up the scoreboard.
So what makes this latest laser tag experience so different? The laser tag industry leader in technology innovation, Delta Strike, explains.

This laser tag system was developed after gathering extensive information and rigorous testing. Deltastrike.net laser tag equipment contains features that makes the ‘first person shooter’

computer games so addictive, but have never been seen before in the laser tag industry. These features include:

• The ability to earn game points during the laser tag game, have a shield or ‘health’ and collect multiple weapons or tools, just like in computer games.
• A graphic LCD Head Up Display on the laser tag gun that can display your player name, weapons available, shield level, your score, name of the player you just tagged, real time game message etc.
• An advanced space-age laser tag gun containing 4 action buttons plus a trigger for excellent game control and making the laser tag experience more ‘real’.

• Unrivalled laser tag membership functionality includes points ladder, multi-centre membership, membership access from home etc.
• In addition, the laser tag gun that can be used indoors or outdoors with a shooting range of 30 meters – in bright sunlight.

And to ensure players keep coming back, Delta Strike is currently working on adding even more features to their laser tag gun, which will be released later in the year. Despite offering so much

functionality, the winning factor for many customers is that the system is still so easy to use:

Grant Richardson of Strike Entertainment says, “My four year daughter can play! The very young kids just run round tagging each other furiously and the older kids get more into the strategy.

People take on as much as they have the ability to use. ”

But that’s not all … Delta Strike has also developed a new set of laser tag arena components that makes players feel they are actually inside a computer game. How is this possible? They can

now make your laser tag arena props, that normally just ‘stand’ there come alive and actually interact with the players.

Players can shoot it and it can shoot players, it can dispense weapons or points and it interacts “intelligently”, producing audio and visual responses, which are part of the game itself. IT’S

ALIVE!

Needless to say, Delta Strike customers are impressed.

As Star Tracks General Manager, Chuck Starrit puts it: “Personally I feel the Delta Strike system is like stepping into a realistic arcade game, the customers absolutely love it.”

So in summary, what is the key to laser tag success and profit? Invest in a laser tag system that promises to surprise and challenge players during the years to come getting them ‘addicted’ so

they keep coming back to play again and again.

Plus, find out what has worked for other successful laser tag operators. One useful source of information is the laser tag academy

(http://www.deltastrike.net/laser-tag-academy.html), which provides independent laser tag information and useful tips which could provide the key to setting up and running a successful laser tag

business … so don’t delay, start researching now and get ready to become the most successful laser tag business around.

Toy Laser Tag – Great Game

Monday, June 20th, 2011 | Permalink

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
(Free-Press-Release.com) May 5, 2011 —
I remember when I would be a youngster. That was long ago, nonetheless it was in Great britain and our absolute favorite game was cowboys and Indians. We utilized to play in an location that many of us referred to as timber. Then there was the best woods as well as little woods and they were fantastic natural wooded common grounds where we might play undisturbed for hours on end.

All of these places were a youngsters heaven with plenty of big timber just begging being climbed and many hiding places so we could tackle the other young children within our games of cowboys and Indians. Just like on TV, my favorite then was ‘The Lone Ranger”. Our firearms were a piece of wood and our games were lots of imagination and much much more enjoyment. I have a little scar in my small knee when I crawled with a part of glass stalking some pesky indians. An extremely little setback for that noble task accessible.

Then when my kids emerged there initially were real looking pistols out there, six pistols that fired caps along with guns that fired corks and rubber bands. You could get guns that fires little darts and little balls and many types of combination’s. I assume young children will almost always be intrigued by firearms. My husband and I bought our 14 year old his first .22 firearm for his celebration and then he accustomed to kill bunnies from his own bedroom window.

Containing all influenced now as pistols are actually banned following your last massacre. That is OK because someone invented the laser rifle and parks opened up where one can go and possess virtual wars with one of these toy laser firearms. I’d a trial once with many young children and also got raised quite bad. Despite the fact that I have to level of comfort was exhilarating we genuinely loved it. Not surprisingly all of the large players now take over their skirmish games where they could wind up in a true battle and blast each other with paint weapons.

But at long last they’ve already made the toy laser tag rifle designed for children at home. Exactly what a good plan. Young children really love this brand new innovation in the same way they have always liked pistols and gun activities. These materials now shoot lasers with audio and recoil and register strikes and therefore are really realistic and allow the kids an excellent quantity skill into their aiming and firing. The toy laser tag systems now allow you to include a component so you can plug into your Television set and continue your laser enjoyment. Scalping strategies are so great there could be some serious rivalry from Dad attempting to play to. Almost always there is the opportunity to get additional pistols and add to your army and go on playing.

Sports Complex adds Laser Tag

Monday, June 20th, 2011 | Permalink

lasertagworld.com

Mooresville, IN – June 14, 2010
The owner of the Williamsburg Sports Complex, Keith Exton, approached Creative Works to design and build a
themed laser tag environment for their existing facility that would blend well with their other activities offered. The
complex opened its doors back in 2000 with one goal. They wanted a place where sports, recreation and fun could take
place all under one roof. With its unique state-of-the-art 77,000 square foot indoor facility, the complex is home to two
multi-sport indoor fields, a fully equipped fitness center, a first class gymnastics and cheer center and other activities.
Recently and after researching their options, they decided that adding a laser tag attraction would offer them the
largest revenue potential compared to other attractions which could fit in the same space. They had originally been
approached by a vendor who offered to provide them with a laser tag equipment and environment on a revenue-sharing
basis; however, after reviewing the offer and realizing how important it was that the attraction be successful, they decided
to provide a bigger WOW to their guests.
Creative Works first spoke with Keith to learn more about his facility and listen to any concerns about the laser tag
attraction being added to their center. We helped to explain the various themes we had available for laser tag and
assisted them in selecting one that met both goals of being eye-catching and immersive while at the same time costeffective for their budget. After carefully considering their options they chose to install our Space Quest laser tag them and add in our 14 foot high Energy Pulse Generator prop and our Enhanced Airbrushing package to round out the theme.

Next we reviewed the floor plans for their entertainment center and the space where the laser tag attraction was
to be dedicated. Our designers created a series of pre-architectural drawings that outlined the final room size for the
attraction area, indicated the quantity and location of black light fixtures and power receptacles needed, and displayed the
proposed arena maze layout including the wall barriers, base targets, and prop locations. This helped Keith to actually
visualize how the attraction would be placed into the area and to help him prepare the space for our arrival.
After the installation of their new Space Quest themed laser tag attraction was completed, they have had nothing
but great comments. “The Theme Team at Creative Works did a fantastic job and we are glad we chose their package
above all others. It has been a great addition to our facility,” said Keith.

National Laser Tag Day – Saturday, March 26th, 2011

Sunday, March 20th, 2011 | Permalink

lasertag.org

On March 28th, 1984, the fist Photon was opened and our industry was born. The excitement that has encompassed laser tag for 27 years was available for the first time! Since then, there have been over 4,000 laser tag facilities that have existed across every continent in the world.

In my experience, whether donating money, time, or information to their fellow operators and developers, laser tag operators have been some of the most generous people I’ve ever met. At the ILTA’s industry dinner in Orlando, Florida, it was suggested that the industry as a whole, whether it be a percentage of a day’s or week’s sales, set aside one day to donate to their favorite charity.

Since March 28th lands on a Monday, a time when many facilities are closed, it was decided that in honor of the first laser tag facility opening, Saturday, March 26th, 2011 would be the day when our industry as a whole could make an incredible impact by donating to the charity of their choice as the first ever National Laser Tag Day!

We at the ILTA would love to hear what your facility donated and to which charity when the time comes, so please let us know if you are planning on participating in the National Laser Tag Day charity donation by emailing us at info@lasertag.org

A Complete Guide to How Laser Tag Equipment Works

Friday, January 7th, 2011 | Permalink

Published by lazerrunner.com

It is important to be aware of the many different styles of equipment offered by various laser tag manufacturers, and to understand the differences, both functionally and visually.

Laser tag equipment has two basic purposes: Transmit Information and Receive Infor­mation.

Transmitting and Receiving Information is accomplished electronically by Radio Frequency (RF), Infrared (IR), Laser, Fiber Optics or a combination of two or three of these methods.

LAZER RUNNER uses a combination of Radio Frequency, Laser and Fiber Optic Technology in the transmission and receiving of information. This is the most efficient way to accomplish the transmitting and receiving of information.

• Radio Frequency (RF)

LAZER RUNNER has developed a RADIO FREQUENCY system that is like no other. Some RF systems are susceptible to interference causing game delays and poor communication. LAZER RUNNER is the only RF system that allows the equipment to change channels automatically if interference is detected, allowing smooth trouble-free laser tag play with no interruptions.

With the latest in micro technology, LAZER RUNNER uses a surface mount RF circuit board and internal antennae for transmission of critical data. This compact design is lightweight and eliminates the bulky circuitry and external antennas other laser tag manufacturers use. This makes the equipment much more durable.

Our engineers have developed a state-of-the-art RF laser tag system that is reliable, easily programmable, and provides players with necessary key statistics and Real Time Scoring. You can even place TV monitors in the lobby or playing arena showing players’ scores and rankings in Real Time!

To find out all about the money-making advantages of Real Time Scoring CLICK HERE to read the report entitled “Two Dirty Little Secrets That Most Tag Laser Manufacturers Don’t Want You To Know”

The hassle of using a keyboard for all day to day operations has been eliminated and replaced with an easy to use Touch Screen Monitor with simple step-by-step instructions. The hardwiring of the arena peripherals has also been eliminated, reducing the time for set-up and eliminating costly downtime. The LAZER RUNNER RF system is ready to go right out of the box. All software is loaded right at the factory.

EASY TO USE – EASY TO MAINTAIN!

• Infrared (IR)

Infrared systems make up approximately 80 percent of all laser tag equipment, and can range from extremely poor to fair quality. The potential problems with IR technology are numerous.

With infrared systems there is, in essence, two beams that are utilized ~ a laser beam and an ‘invisible’ infrared beam. The laser beam in infrared systems does not transmit data and is used for visual purposes only! The infrared beam (similar to what is used on your TV remote), that does transmit data, is collimated to try to travel alongside the laser beam. Unfor­tunately this design has several flaws:

  • Infrared beams cannot be focused to pinpoint accuracy thereby creating beams that vary from a few inches to several feet in diameter. What you aim at with your laser is not always what you hit with your IR beam.
  • These beams can become un­aligned causing even greater error in targeting accuracy and operation of the system. These beams need to be regularly maintained and realigned.
  • Targeting range is limited.
  • The possibility of stray signals is very high (players get deactivated by IR that has bounced off walls or ceilings).
  • Game turnaround time is slow due to the time consuming downloading process required at the end of each game.

• Laser Transmission

LAZER RUNNER is the only laser tag system in the world that uses the actual laser beam for transmission of data. This is achieved through a low power (less than one milliwatt) laser diode. The benefit of this system is pinpoint accuracy. What you aim at is what you hit!

LAZER RUNNER is a true laser tag system.

Best of all, the range of targeting is fantastic – with well over 500 foot capabilities! Serious laser tag players, of all ages, demand this range and accuracy. The proof is in the repeat customers and in the profits. This technology makes LAZER RUNNER the most challenging of all the laser tag systems. There are no false hits or misaligned beams often experienced with old style IR laser tag systems. LAZER RUNNER keeps the players coming back for more!

There are times, however when you may actually want the game to be less challenging – like when little kids are playing. Press one button on the touch screen monitor and our system instantly makes the game easier to play for young kids. No other system offers this feature.

• Targets (Receivers)

Targets on laser tag equipment can be found mounted on vests, waist belts and phasers. The targets are usually lit by flashing or glowing LED’s (Light Emitting Diodes). Once targeted and deactivated, some equipment must be re-energized at a pod or a reactivation station. (This is a huge hassle). “Download” or “reactivation” stations slow down throughput and require maintenance. Only old style infra red systems have download stations. Any laser tag system with download or reactivation stations should be avoided altogether.

At LAZER RUNNER we have developed ad­van­ced fiber optic sensors to harness laser light. By incorporating fiber optics, LAZER RUNNER has eliminated the need for extra circuitry. As a result we have reduced the weight and increased the ergonomic appeal of our vests. But most importantly we have virtually eliminated all sensor problems that plague maintenance-prone IR systems.

Other laser systems require bulky receiver circuitry for each and every target area ~ front, back, shoulders, belts and phasers. These target areas are usually raised and covered by clear plastic for protection. Unfortunately these ‘raised’ areas are highly prone to wear and damage resulting in poor reception of signals, inaccurate scoring and down time. Malfunctioning vests translate to down time and lost revenue.

LAZER RUNNER has just one receiver board that does it all! LAZER RUNNER fiber optic targets are mounted flush with the vest. This greatly eliminates costly maintenance. Our vests are noticeably clean and streamlined, allow pinpoint targeting accuracy, and are visually stunning.

The LAZER RUNNER fiber optic sensors can be programmed to be one of six colors. This means every single LAZER RUNNER vest is exactly the same. You choose the colors, you choose the teams. You are no longer limited to the number of red vests and green vests, but can program blue, red, green, purple, orange and yellow teams in any number of players you desire.

Above all, the fiber optic vests take punishment. High tech, lightweight and critically durable. Our equipment takes a beating and keeps on going!

LAZER RUNNER fiber optic technology will give you a system that delivers endurance and profit.

• Phaser (Laser Housing)

These hand-held units vary from two-handed machine gun styles, to hand-held phasers. Phasers are usually attached by a cord to their vest. These units can provide the player with sound effects, time remaining, player’s score and other statistics.

LAZER RUNNER Phasers provide the players with all these features and more.

LAZER RUNNER uses hand held phasers. Hand held phasers are lighter in weight and more user friendly to customers of all ages than two handed units. Phasers also allow the customer to have one hand free to keep their balance when moving throughout the arena. Our phaser design has eliminated the “protruding barrel” that has proven to be a safety problem.

All LAZER RUNNER components were designed to incorporate the best features available in the industry.

Every piece of LAZER RUNNER equipment was built to be the best in the business . . . at a reasonable price!

• Breakthrough in Technology

LAZER RUNNER is state-of-the-art equipment. Breakthroughs in technology have allowed us to offer everything that you would expect to find in the most sophisticated laser games, but at a fraction of the price. From individual and team scoring to sentry pods and home bases that fire back. From tamperproof accounting, to our patented “quick-charge” system. From auto-select modules that run the game, to durable solid state lasers. We provide it all from our factory direct to you!

For children age 8 and up, advanced play options make Laserfun even more exciting! They can get extra powers during the game. For example rapid fire, invisibility, and invulnerability. Mines are placed in the maze and can either deactivate a player or give him extra powers.

Scores
After the game is over, each player receives a scorecard. The players are ranked with the best player being number one. The scorecard shows exactly how many times a player was hit and by who. It also shows the team scores, highscores, etcetera. Even the accuracy of the shots for each player is given. Large LCD score screens can show the game scores in the bar area.

Two sizes: Junior and Senior
Laserfun vests are made in two sizes: Junior and Senior. Junior vests are specially designed to fit children aged 4 – 12, but they also fit adults comfortably. Senior vests are designed for adults and children aged 9 and higher. Both types of vests can be used within the same game, making it possible for parents to play Laserfun together with their children.

LaserMaxx technology
Laserfun vests are made with LaserMaxx technology. LaserMaxx is the largest European brand of lasertag system, and is well-known for its durability and excellent service department.
