MAXXimum Thrill and Fun at Lazer Maxx Greenhills

I am not someone who loves to do things involving physical activities. I’m way too lazy, I know. But sometimes if it fosters camaraderie and give me some fun and enjoyment, I will always consider. A few weeks ago I was invited to join my foodie friends for a food crawl which begun with a lazer tag activity at Greenhills.

At first I was hesitant to join, I don’t want to tire myself early on knowing that I will have a full day ahead of me. But I was already there and I thought what the heck, let’s just get it done and over with so that we can move to the next destination. We geared up, teamed up and received our instructions from the personnel manning the place.

Our battleground was Lazer Maxx in Shoppesville Greenhills. I’m not sure about this, but I think it is one of the few lazer tagging arena in the country. As of the moment they have 3 branches: Greenhills Shopping Center, Eton Centris Quezon City and San Fernando, Pampanga. The Greenhills branch was recently renovated so the battleground will give all sorts of players a unique game experience.

Laser tag is a tag game played with guns which fire infrared beams. Infrared-sensitive targets are commonly worn by each player and are sometimes integrated within the arena in which the game is played. Since its birth in 1979 and was first played in 1984, with the release of the Star Trek Electronic Phasers toy manufactured by the South Bend Electronics brand of Milton Bradley, laser tag has evolved into both indoor and outdoor styles of play, and may include simulations of combat, role play-style games, or competitive sporting events including tactical configurations and precise game goals.

Laser tag is popular with a wide range of ages. When compared to paintball, laser tag is painless because it uses no physical projectiles, and indoor versions may be considered less physically demanding because most indoor venues prohibit running or rough-housing.

After gearing up and getting our instructions we entered the arena. It’s a huge dark space with graffiti all over that illuminates under blue light. I was teamed up with the other girls Bunny and Gel and our opponents were the two groups of boys. It started slow because everyone was trying their best to strategize and sneak on somebody not their team mate for a “kill”.

The moment I saw one of our opponents, adrenaline rushed and I started getting competitive. I pushed on my trigger like crazy just to try to shut off the opponent’s lights on their vest. That’s how you know you hit somebody, when the lights on their vests turn off and each light corresponds to a particular number of points. You’ll know who your opponent is and who’s not because you and your teammates can choose your team color that will light up your vests. I may have shot some friendly fires, goof thing is that this is just a game and nobody will ever ever get hurt hahaha!

I love reading and watching tv shows/movies about war and I’ve done paintball back in college but I never liked the part where I have to run, duck etc; but I do like to have gun firing as a hobby. I’ve never tried the latter though, but I’ve been dying to. After playing this lazer tag, that want, for that hobby was reignited once more.

The whole game was so fun and everyone was ultra-competitive. At the end of the 15-minute game (which I swear seemed like an hour), we were all sweating like crazy as if we just worked out. If you’r elooking for other recreations to do with your barkada that is as fun as the other stuff that you have in mind, laser tag battles at Lazer Maxx is definitely an option that you should consider. It’s not only for kids; I mean obviously, the adults in the photo above surely enjoyed this activity.
