With two daughters aged 4 ½ and almost 8 years, I was apprehensive as to whether Laserzone in Brisbane would have a great deal to hold their interest and entertain them for any length of time. Upon visiting the awesome Laserzone family entertainment centre in Lawnton however, I was VERY happily surprised! My two girls were quite reluctant to leave and spent just under two hours rushing from one fun activity to the next. In fact, the only way we got them out of there was to bribe them with another trip soon.
Fun for Boys and Girls of All Ages
As one of the original Brisbane laser tag centres, Laserzone has been in its current location for over 10 years. In 2013, the Lawnton venue expanded into the space next door and now incorporates lots of entertaining arcade games, bumper cars and a cool selection of redemption prizes. Before visiting, I just had no idea how much there was to do for EVERYONE at Laserzone. I naively assumed that it was a place for boys. I was proven very wrong and found that all ages and genders are catered to and the centre is in fact a comfortable environment for families to enjoy a safe
non-contact sport and games.
The Laserzone Experience
The entrance to Laserzone is very cool. The entire building is covered by a mural with no visible access point and it is only when you approach the building that you discover the green button that activates the automatic door to gain entry. The Laserzone experience begins as soon as you enter the darkened foyer with neon lights and the sound of people enjoying playing laser tag and arcade games—it’s a real multi-sensory experience. As well as a reception desk, the foyer holds several arcade games and a seating area. Stairs from the foyer take you up to the café space (that’s being added) and laser tag observation deck. The ground floor level leads straight through to the laser tag arena or around to the left to the brand new arcades and bumper cars.
Hours of Fun at Laserzone
Laserzone offers fantastic value for school holiday entertainment, action packed no-fuss kids’ parties or just a fun family day out. Laser tag is recommended for those over the age of 5 years due to the weight of the packs worn and my husband had an awesome time playing, however, it may be a bit scary in the darkened multi-level arena for more timid personalities and younger children. Aside from laser tag though, there are so many things to do at Laserzone that smaller kids and those just not wanting to play will be kept well occupied for their entire visit. The all-inclusive passes available will cover you for 1 or 2 hours of unlimited play, meaning you can play a few games of laser tag that run for around 12 minutes each including a briefing and/or as many video arcade games as you can handle. Each pass includes a ride on the Bumper Cars, as well as some Arcade Credit and unlimited access to the Retro Arcade.
