Just curious to see if any of our forumites have ever been to any of our country's LaserTron gaming centers?
We have one here in Western New York and I find myself addicted to the game. Basically, about twenty people or so are split into two teams and are given these proton-type packs that have sensors on the front and back of your chest. There are also two small sensors on your shoulder. These sensors are the places you are to aim and shoot your laser gun at.
Your team then is taken to a special playing area that is divided into two colors, green and red. You are to defend the base of whatever color team you are on or storm the base of the team of the opposite color. There are targets on the base that you have to hit to earn big points. You can also earn points by hitting the sensors of your opponent. You play three seperate games in all, or if you have the energy and stanima, you can play six.
It is a very challenging and fun game, especially when you go with a group of your friends. At the end of the game, you get a logistical read of all the hits you've had against your opponent, which one, where did you hit them, how many times you were hit, how many base hits did you get, etc.
I know a lot of gaming centers and places have something similar to LaserTron, however they seem to be of a lower quality. I don't think there are many LaserTrons in the country anymore, I remember seeing a list of their other locations, and I only remember seeing one in Florida and Tennessee. If you have one in your area, I highly recommend that you go and check it out!
