Laser tag is a fun activity and could be compared to a first-person shooter simulator to many gamers. Intended for people of all ages in the Xtreme Adventures Family Center is located in Lutz, Florida. Not only is there a laser tag arena up to six thousand square feet for people to interact, but there is also an arcade zone where people can play over ten arcade games and earn virtual tickets to purchase their prizes with. At the entrance, there is a walk wall that is close to the entrance and dual sided Adventure Turf next to the walk wall. Here people can play a mix of dodgeball, soccer and basketball or be in the bumper car arena.
Gamers can identify with the gaming aspects while playing laser tag.
Julian Alayon, the laser tag coordinator of Xtreme Adventures, has a better understanding of laser tag as well as gaming and how both of them have a huge correlation with one another.
“For the most part, we have vests that you can wear and they can talk to you, kind of similar how you would play a game and you have a HUD where it tells you your health, how much ammo you have and everything,” Alayon said. “But here it’s much more relaxed and essentially we have most of our game modes have infinite ammo, infinite health, so that way we keep more of the fun to a long extended period of time.”
On Wednesday and Thursday Xtreme Adventures opens at 5 p.m. and closes at 9 p.m. On Friday they close at 11 p.m. and 7 p.m. on Sundays.
