Laser Tag Fun Facts

The idea for laser tag was born when creator George Carter III was watching a battle scene in the film Star Wars. What we once thought of as far-fetched future technology is now a widely played game.

When firing a “shot” in laser tag, what you see is a laser beam, which is for effect only. What scores the actual hit or tag on your opponent is usually an infrared signal, similar to the signal used to change the channel from your television remote control.

When you take your campers to a laser tag venue, ask the staff if they can explain the technology behind the game.
