Battle House Laser Combat: It’s Not What You Think!

Forget what you know about “laser tag”; if those two words conjure up visions of plastic vests, toy guns, strobe lights, and small rooms, you need to try a realistic, mission-based, laser combat experience. You’ll be glad you did!

At Battle House Laser Combat, there’s a reason they don’t call it “laser tag”. “This is like playing in a real live video game,” said Doug Huckbody, co-owner of Battle House. “This isn’t sitting on your couch and watching your character have all the fun and do all the work, it’s more like live action role play.”

Battle House Laser Combat consistently exceeds the expectations of those who try it for the first time. It offers a true tactical environment with a simulated combat experience. Assignments are similar to real-life missions in the military. “We provide as realistic an experience as we can make it,” said Doug. “We created a multi-level city environment inside a huge building. It’s multi-dimensional. You have to look all around - up, down, forward, and backward. You feel like you’re a character in ‘Call Of Duty’.”

The realistic military-grade weapons shoot “ammo” (an infrared beam) that is fast and extremely accurate. You’re not limited by weather conditions, and there is no pain or potential injury associated with this style of play - unlike paintball or airsoft guns, which use actual projectiles. Battle House stresses safety, offering a thorough orientation into the environment and the equipment.

This unique, destination experience offers a phenomenal workout in each 1 hour, 45 minute session. Players will move 3-4 miles within that time frame, performing many different mission scenarios. A little planning is necessary to ensure availability. The facility is available for private events, so be sure to call Doug to get up-to-date information, or book online! Give this experience a try. Everyone who does is so glad they did!
