@ Tampines Hub: 1 Tampines Walk, Singapore 528523 (nearest MRT: Tampines station)
With some relatives from out of town visiting Singapore, we decided to take to laser tag! The newly opened Tampines Hub housed Laser Quest, which takes up to 20 players per round in a dark room. The play area was not too big, but large enough to get me panting after a mere 5 minutes into the game.
Before we began, the staff gave a short briefing session with the play instructions. Players wear a (pretty heavy) vest with a laser gun attached - my 9 year old niece was thoroughly enjoying herself except her energy clearly waned from the heavy vest by the time we were on our 3rd game. 2 teams are formed and players attempt to shoot at lighted points on the vests. Each time you get hit, the vest vibrates and you are ‘stunned’ briefly, before you are allowed to start making shots again. Points are accumulated and shown at a screen by the entrance at the end of each round.
The room has makeshift walls and mini ramps for players to hide behind and maneuver. Just a note that the room is pretty dark and may not be suitable for some!
Each round (aka mission) lasts 10 minutes. Each mission is priced at $14/person (for non-members). The price per mission lowers if you purchase more missions. Laser Ops is another indoor laser tag facility to check out!
The newest indoor shooting game on the block would be virtual reality shooting with Zero Latency at Suntec City. Can't wait to check that out!
