Are your phasers safe?
Yes, our phasers are harmless. They shoot invisible, harmless infrared beams, just like a TV remote control.
Can the laser beams hurt your eyes?
No. The infrared laser is not harmful to your eyes as it is invisible.
Is it painful if you get tagged?
Our phasers shoot high-powered infrared ‘ghost bullets’, thus no pain or bruises!
Can I play wearing thongs?
No, only closed shoes are allowed.
Can I play without camo?
Yes, as long as you have long trousers on that covers your ankles. We also recommend long sleeve shirts but it is not compulsory.
Is my child too young to play?
We cater for children 6 years old and up.
Does a two hours session mean we play for an entire 2 hours?
No, each 2 hour session is split up into 4/3 15 or 30 min games. The session also includes signing in at reception, gearing up, briefing and short breaks.
What are the minimum and maximum amount of players for a game?
We suggest a minimum of six but a maximum amount of players can cater for is currently 40 to still receive the discount. We are able to hire more equipment if it is needed.
How do the games work?
Players are divided into two teams and briefed on their missions. There are different types of missions . Players wear a hat/cap which has sensors attached to it. When a player shoots another player, the phaser sends a coded message to the sensors. Both players receive a hit feed from the sensors stating "Deactivated", "Tagged" and more with sound effects such as bypassing bullets and more.
What are the rules of the games?
The golden rule is: safety first or no play!
Remain within designated areas.
Abide by ALL rules.
Follow staff directives.
No Physical contact.
No reckless behaviour to self or others.
No jumping over or moving barricades.
No throwing or kicking of projectiles.
Wear safety devices and required clothing at all times: long trousers covering ankles, enclosed shoes and hats/caps provided.
Notify staff of injury or reckless behaviour.
What should we expect when we arrive at the Murrenbong Scouts Camp?
Please arrive 30 minutes earlier to hand in your completed membership form and pay the exact amount of cash if you have not made an online payment. A Laser Commando staff member will be there to welcome you to the battlefield.
Disposable camo’s will then be distributed if they were ordered.
Players will then be divided into two equal teams (blue and red) and handed a bandanna/cap. Players then get to choose a phaser from the available weapon range .The sensors of the phaser are attached to a headband that is worn over the bandanna/cap.
Players are then briefed on:
Safety and rules
How to wear your sensors correctly
How your weapon works
How to reload
How to re-spawn
The mission and more
Groups are then taken to their starting points and the first game kicks off when the Laser Commando staff member/s counts down 3...2...1! Game on! We usually run between 3 to 4 games in a 2-hour session with breaks in-between.
What should I bring?
Players should please:
Wear long pants and closed shoes
Bring a completed membership form with them
Do you hire out equipment?
Yes, we do! More information regarding laser tag rental packages are available on our homepage!
