Laser Tag Business Cash Flow Calculator Online Tool [FREE]

Here's how to use this free revenue calculator tool:
  • Slide each variable to different numbers
  • Because this is a commercial laser tag business calculator the minimum number of laser tag guns in your arsenal is set at 10. (The maximum for this calculator tool is 300, although you could definitely have more than that as the system supports around 2,000 gamers at once.)
  • Adjust your utilization rate
  • Adjust how long your business is trading - per gameplay minute. Consider many hours you plan to be open, just multiply by 60 to get the number of minutes
  • Change the laser tag price for a ticket - calculated via amount per play minute
  • The revenue (potential weekly turnover or in other words "Cash In The Door") will automatically be calculated.




Exactly how much cash you can generate depends on the number of laser taggers (gaming guns) you have in your arsenal. 

How many gaming guns will you start with? 

How many will you add over time? What's your ideal number? 

Ask yourself

  1. how many games you run (open times)
  2. how often they are being used (utilization rate) and 
  3. how much you charge for a ticket. 
The answers will determine your laser tag business revenue.

Customize your results for your laser tag business by changing the values on the sliders.

The revenue calculator can give you a great insight into how changes in variables, like changes in utilization rate or ticket price, can affect your overall money-making capacity.

How Much Money Can You Make In A Laser Tag Business? Revenue Calculation Example

For example, say you have 50 laser taggers in your armory. And say they are all used half of the time, this gives you a 50% utilization rate. While it would be fabulous to be running at 100% capacity the entire time you are open, this is unlikely. 

Of course the more hours per week you are at 100% capacity the more money you will make!

In this example, say customers have booked and paid for 8 hours of games per week (480 minutes). Now your business may be open longer than 8 hours. If you are a mobile operator then you will need to factor in drive time for transporting the laser tag equipment, as well as set-up and pack-down time.

To keep it simple, in this example, we assume you get paid one dollar (or one pound or one euro) per minute of play.

You can easily change these numbers by adjusting the slider or tapping in the price field and change the amount/s.

This will change the result.

This little app is designed to give you an estimate of your top-line turnover figure. 

This revenue calculator is not a profit calculator. 

It does not factor in expenses and overheads such as tax, rent, or insurance (or other expenses). 

Savvy Business People Know 

Savvy businesspeople know that the most profitable customers are repeat customers. So having a live gaming system that encourages players to play again is vital. 

That is why it makes sense to invest in the most well-designed, efficient equipment you can. It lowers your ongoing running costs, so you walk away with the maximum profit. Our live gaming system is designed to create thrilling games with less staff. 

It is a win/win

When doing your business planning there are several factors to consider, such as: 
  • If your business is a mobile operation then there's the vehicle costs, gas, insurance, car registration, etc
  • If your business is a fixed site operation then there's rent, utilities, overheads, etc 
  • Staffing wages & costs such as superannuation/401k or medical 
  • Wear and tear and depreciation on your business equipment and your laser tag equipment
  • Marketing & advertising
  • Phone & Internet 
  • Other expenses! 

Whichever way you slice it, one of your key expenses is staffing costs. The Battlefield Sports SATR3 system is designed for a single staffer to set up and run the live gaming experience. We usually allocate one crew for up to 20 players at once. Then two staff for around 50 players at once. And then three staff for up to 100 players at once. 

The efficiency of your operation makes a huge difference to your profit in the long run.
