It’s been over 25 years since the first laser tag facility opened in the U.S.
What was once considered a fad has developed into a worldwide phenomenon. Embracing evolving technology and innovation has been no problem for most laser tag equipment providers. Doing so has kept laser tag a relevant, profitable venture through the tech boom’s ups and downs.
A successful laser tag attraction can be found in several forms:
- Stand-alone laser tag business
- Part of a Family Entertainment Center (FEC)
- A traveling mobile unit
- Theme park attraction
- Replacement for low performing attractions
Each of these come with a laundry list of to-do items and a million questions for an operator.
Every year themed arena provider Creative Works, runs a program called LaserTAG360. This program is an educational event designed to help new and existing business operators worldwide learn to implement a successful laser tag business model. Creative Works builds some of the most intricate laser tag arenas and is a household name in the laser tag industry.
