Glenworth Valley provides the perfect backdrop for an adrenaline-charged game of laser skirmish.
Laser skirmish is a team combat simulation game similar to laser tag that is played outdoors. Laser skirmish is like a live action video game as players shoot laser tag guns with a harmless infra-red beam, with a sensor detecting hits.
The weapons used are realistic in shape and weight and use infra-red technology which is detected by sensors on the player’s head and laser tag gun. Each player’s sensors are attached to their laser tag gun so when they are hit, their laser tag gun is automatically deactivated.
The first team to deactivate all members of the other team wins. As the laser tag guns use harmless infra-red beams, unlike paintball, there’s no mess or nasty bruises.
