What are the age ranges?
Laser tag (laser shooting) is a game for all ages. Each individual gun weighs 5 pounds (2.25 kg) however they have a shoulder strap for safety and convenience. We would recommend that it would not be suitable for children under the age of six due to the nature of the game, however there is no upper age limit.Top

Certainly, a detailed printout of individual and team scores can be created! Please contact us to ensure this is available for your event.Top

Can we have the funky alien too?
Yes of course, Buzz can be at your event however in windy conditions this is not always possible.Top

I have limited space? Is there anything I can do?
The Vortex Evolution is a solution that has ‘evolved’ from the original concept of The Vortex. We understand that it is not always possible to fit us in your back garden and it is not always possible to hire a hall big enough either. Instead, why not hire a regular sized hall and allow us to transform it into an equally fun arena with the use of our inflatable bunkers and lighting effects. The obstacles we provide as part of The Vortex Evolution vary in size from 3ft to 6.5ft high which creates plenty of hiding places.

Alternatively if you want to hire The Vortex, why not speak to a local school, community centre or sports ground, who are often willing to help.Top

Are you insured for the mobile laser tag arena?
Yes we are fully insured with £5million Public Liability insurance. We can also provide a risk assessment. Our guns are safety tested and our inflatables are fire retardant.Top

Do you have your own power supply?
For an additional change, we can provide power for your event. Unfortunately for an indoor event, it is not possible and power will be required from the building.Top
