About Laser Tag
Laser tag is not just for the kids anymore. Its complementary mix of physical elements and team play make it an excellent option for team-building, developing strategy skills and also as a way to get fun exercise without the boredom of going to the gym. Increasingly, corporations are looking at laser tag to support departments in a number of different ways. A joint study by the University of Minnesota and the University of Memphis found that computer-assisted activities such as laser tag can actually help to promote and motivate organizational learning.

Studies have also shown that “corporate laser tag” has the following benefits:
- Relieves work-related stress
- Allows individuals to get to know one another in a non-formal setting
- Allows everyone to showcase their leadership abilities
- Promotes camaraderie within the group
- Creates an environment for creative thinking and problem solving
- Breaks down hierarchical (manager/employee) barriers
- It doesn’t feel ‘corporate’ and encourages participation because it is fun
Additionally, laser tag is one of the most cost-effective team-building exercises available and is a much more practical option when compared to pricey corporate retreats and conference center-based training sessions. Because of its popularity as a team-building activity, we now offer special deals and pricing for our corporate clientele.
Aside from the team-building aspect of laser tag, it is also an excellent form of exercise for both children and adults. For children especially, it not only burns calories but also helps develop hand-eye coordination along with building social skills. Adults can also benefit from the running, high-intensity action of laser tag, which is a welcome alternative to working out at the gym.
The game and challenge aspect of laser tag acts as a motivator for exercise and movement which can be particularly helpful for individuals not interested in traditional sports. A recent study by students at the Canadian Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario supports this claim, and further elaborates that for those currently leading a more sedentary lifestyle, augmented reality games – such as laser tag – act as a valid and successful form of exercise!

HOW DOES LASER TAG WORK AT APC?
Laser tag is the perfect option for any event such as birthday parties, bachelor or bachelorette parties, and even corporate events!

Most times, a laser tag group should expect to be at the facility for an hour and a half to two hours in order to complete all five games.
