Families who are able to spend time together during the holidays are truly blessed. It’s a wonderful time to reflect on past traditions and to enjoy the present. One way to enjoy a terrific experience together is to “get your battle on” at Battle House Laser Combat in Lake Barrington, IL.

“Battle House offers a unique way of bonding with your family,” said owner Doug Huckbody. “We’re a family-run business, and we love when families and friends come during the holidays. They battle for almost 2 hours, engaging in exciting mission scenarios. On several occasions we’ve had three generations playing. It’s a blast, and the teambuilding aspect of the experience really brings people together.”

The Huckbodys opened Battle House after their daughter arranged for a pre-wedding outing at a similar facility in Wisconsin for her groom and his friends. “We realized how fun this was for men, women, kids, and even grandparents, and wanted to bring this experience to Illinois,” added Huckbody. “We host bachelor and bachelorette parties, birthday parties for all ages, graduation parties, youth and school groups, and corporate teambuilding events. It’s a great way to bring people together who enjoy an intense, thrilling experience.”

Battle House has guests from all over the world who visit family in Illinois for the holidays. “We’ve had visitors from Taiwan, Japan, Wales, and Argentina,” said Huckbody. “We had a Swiss hockey team, and their parents, come to Battle House. They were in Crystal Lake for a hockey tournament, and were invited to Battle House by their U.S. Hockey team hosts. One family had played tactical laser combat in a former Swiss Army bunker on a mountainside in Switzerland, and compared their experience at Battle House very favorably.
