Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's)

How long is each session?

Each session is 20 minutes. This includes a 5 minute briefing with 15 minutes game play.

Can we bring our own food?

Unfortunately, not. We do have a fully catered cafe available to buy food and drinks from.

How many people do we need to play?

You can have as little as 2 people play and a maximum of 40 people play at any one time. You do go in with other people from the public unless you have a special booking.

I have played Paintball before, does it hurt?

No, unlike paintball there is no pain involved in laser tag. You will know when you have been tagged when the pack shuts down temporarily, thus you're unable to fire your phaser. Don't worry though, you are not out of the game, the pack re-boots in 6 seconds and the game continues

Are there any age restrictions?

The minimum age we recommend is 6 years old. The reason being that the darkened arena may scare younger children, and the pack may be heavy for them. Darklight Laser Games prides itself in being a fun place to be and we don't want anyone to have a bad experience. There is no maximum age. In fact, it is a great family activity, so bring along everyone including Nanna and Pop.

Do I need protective clothing?

No, the only clothing requirement is to wear enclosed shoes.

I've never played laser tag before, how will I know what to do?

Before every game the players are shown a brief instructional video and the marshal is available to answer any other questions that may arise.

Do I need to book a game beforehand, or can I book a game at the venue?

It is recommended that you book your games before arriving at Darklight Laser Games. This is to ensure that we can accommodate you in the earliest game possible.
