I got an invite from the guys of LazerXtreme to try out there branch at Alabang Town Center and I agreed of course. I never tried laser tag in my life and it was a first for me and my friends.
Let me share you our experience at the LazerXtreme in ATC.
LazerXtreme is popular for laser tag game but it has more to it than just that. LazerXtreme is an entertainment center where young kids and young at heart people can enjoy laser mazes, glow-in-the-dark mini golf and good food.
If you watching the popular CBS comedy series “How I Met Your Mother” then I’m sure that you are very familiar with the term “laser tag”.
Laser tag is a team game where players attempt to score points by tagging targets/opponents, using their hand-held infrared-emitting targeting device or simply toy guns that shoots laser where players must also wear infrared-sensitive vest to act as a target. (see picture below)
Laser Tag is a game much like your typical “baril-barilan” but with the use of these high-tech toys. It can be played with multiple teams or with just 2 teams where you have to score as many points as possible by tagging your opponents.
The game can be played using different formats designed for a variety of challenges ranging from solo play, general team play, structured team building to advance game to challenge the most experienced players. In our case, we tried general team play where other players wear different colored vest and all we have to do is to hide and shoot them. It was crazy and fun but was also tiring because you have to be constantly on the move to avoid being tagged.
We also tried “Golf Extreme”. It was a mini golf with 9 holes that are using glow-in-the-dark equipments to add a little flavor to the experience. It was nice but it is more fitted for kids rather than adults.
“Laser Maze” was the first activity we tried. We got excited to try it out because it was quite familiar to us. Remember when you watch a detective or a spy movie and there’s always a highly secured place with lasers to protect it? This is what the Laser Maze is about. It’s a small dark room equipped with green laser sensors where players have to avoid. Players must travel to the other side of the room and back without alerting the sensor to avoid point deductions. The game can be played in 3 level of difficulties. We tried easy and medium and look, I even placed third on the record for medium difficulty. Yebah!
We had a great “merienda” at Planet Cafe after we tried all of Lazer Extreme’s amenities. We ordered spaghetti bolognese and peperroni pizza to complete our Lazer Extreme experience. The food was good and it was priced reasonably.
All-in-all we all had fun with our visit at Lazer Xtreme and if you ask me if I would go back there, I’ll say yes definitely. It you like to try what we experienced then you should visit Lazer Xtreme in Alabang Town Center or in Market-Market in Global City, Taguig.
