How does laser tag work?
At Underground Lasergame, we use lasergame taggers that are attached to a "Swat" helmet with hit sensors. The helmet thus represents the hit zone that should be hit by the opponent. Each hit generates an acoustic and visual signal. This ensures that everyone is aware that a hit has been successfully made. In different game variants with different game objectives, it is important to land as many hits on the opponent as possible. Skill, speed and tactics count here.
When was laser tag invented?
Lasertag was originally developed for the US military in the 1970s for exercise and training purposes. The toy industry marketed lasertag in the civilian sector. The first laser tag arena was built in Dallas in 1984.
Is it possible to participate in Underground Lasergame under the age of 16?
No! Participation under the age of 16 is not possible at Underground Lasergame. The decisive factor for this age restriction is the special game location and the associated liability risk. For liability reasons, we are unable to offer participation under the age of 16.
If I am 16 years old, do I need my parents' permission to take part?
We, at Underground Lasergame, do NOT require parental consent. For players under the age of 18, it is necessary that the parents are informed that you are at Underground Lasergame and playing laser tag.
Is laser tag suitable for children?
In principle, laser tag is an active sport that is also suitable for children. From a purely educational point of view, however, you should consider whether children should play laser tag (which was originally developed for military purposes).
Participation in Underground Lasergame is only possible from the age of 16.
Is there a minimum number of participants for laser tag?
At Underground Lasergame, you can also book as an individual. We make sure that there are enough players at the same time so that the game makes sense and is fun for you.
Do I have to reserve a match date?
Yes, as we are heavily booked, we recommend that you send us an electronic reservation in advance. Booking request to send.
How long does a game last?
The duration of a game round is influenced by the following factors:
- Number of participants in a game round
- Skill / speed of the participants
- The programming settings of the Lasertagger
This means that you can't say exactly how long a game round will last to the minute. As a rule, a game round lasts between 8 and 20 minutes.
Do I have to be there a little earlier for the match?
Yes please! We recommend that you arrive about 5 to 10 minutes earlier for a pre-booked game appointment. This ensures a better and more relaxed start to the game rounds.
Can I consume alcohol or other intoxicating substances before a booked match?
Underground Lasergame offers fun sports. For us, however, fun does not mean that you endanger the safety of yourself or other participants by drinking alcohol, for example. Please respect the fact that alcohol and other intoxicating substances have no place here. For us, the safety of each individual participant is right at the top of our agenda alongside the fun of the game. We fully understand that on special occasions, such as stag and hen parties, alcohol is of course included. But please book your game package for such an occasion so that you only consume alcohol after the laser tag event. As it happens from time to time that participants come to our game under the influence of alcohol, we would like to point out that we reserve the right to exclude participants from the booked game for safety reasons. Exclusion from the game is of course also unpleasant for us and should of course only be a last resort. We therefore ask all participants to weigh up on their own responsibility and in a safety-conscious manner whether it is really necessary to go to a fun sports activity under the influence of alcohol.
What kind of clothing do I have to wear for laser tag?
During laser tag, it is important to wear closed shoes that allow you to move from point A to point B quickly and safely. High-heeled shoes or flip-flops, for example, are not suitable. Normal street clothing is generally sufficient. We recommend bringing a change of shirt and a towel, as laser tag can be a very sweaty sport.
Is parking available at Underground Lasergame?
There is free public parking on the street directly in front of our laser game bunker. We have no control over these public parking spaces and therefore cannot guarantee their availability. Alternatively, there are two guarded, paid parking spaces in the immediate vicinity of our premises.
Parking 1: Parking lot to Martin-Gropius-Bau via access road Stresemannstraße
Parking 2: Lidl parking lot Stresemannstraße 72-78 (underground parking garage)
Can food and drink be consumed in the laser game bunker?
For reasons of hygiene, food is not permitted in the bunker. Drinks (non-alcoholic) are permitted.
How old do I have to be to play laser tag with you?
Our indoor offers are suitable from the age of 16; our outdoor offers from the age of 18.
