Which areas do you cover?

We cover any area within 1 hour drive from Bracken Ridge but we are flexible. Contact us to discuss your event.

Our prices apply to children and adults.

Do you pay extra for ammunition?

Not at all! It is included in the price. You can reload at no extra cost.

Yes, but discounts do not apply and only cash payments are accepted.

Can I have a refund if a friend cancelled?

Unfortunately, we do not give refunds but we will gladly convert the payment into credits which can be used to purchase from our shop.

I phoned Laser Commando but I got voicemail. How soon will someone reply?

Usually within 1 hour during office hours.

Are your phasers safe?

Yes, our phasers are harmless. They shoot invisible, harmless infrared beams, just like a TV remote control.

Can the laser beams hurt your eyes?

No. The infrared laser is not harmful to your eyes as it is invisible.

Is it painful if you get tagged?

Our phasers shoot high-powered infrared ‘ghost bullets’, thus no pain or bruises!

Can I play wearing thongs?

No, only closed shoes are allowed.

Can I play without camo?

Yes, as long as you have long trousers on that covers your ankles. We also recommend long sleeve shirts but it is not compulsory. Please note that you won’t be able to hide well from your opponent in the bush without a camo overall.

Is my child too young to play?

If she/he can walk, they can play.

Does a two hours session mean we play for an entire 2 hours?

No, each 2 hour session is split up into 4/3 15 or 30 min games. The session also includes signing in at reception, gearing up, briefing and short breaks.

What is the minimum and maximum amount of players for a game?

We suggest a minimum of six but a maximum amount of players can cater for is currently 50 to still receive the discount. We are able to hire more equipment if it is needed.

How does the game work?

Players are divided into two teams and briefed on their missions. Players wear a hat/cap which has sensors attached to it. When a player shoots another player, the phaser sends a coded message to the sensors. Both players receive a hit feed from the sensors stating "Deactivated", "Tagged" and more with sound effects such as bypassing bullets and more.

What are the rules of the game?

The golden rule is: safety first or no play!

  • Remain within designated areas.
  • Abide by ALL rules.
  • Follow staff directives.
  • No Physical contact.
  • No reckless behaviour to self or others.
  • No jumping over or moving barricades.
  • No throwing or kicking of projectiles.
  • Wear safety devices and required clothing at all times: long trousers covering ankles, enclosed shoes and hats/caps provided.

What to expect when you arrive:

Please arrive 30 minutes earlier to hand in your completed membership form and pay, if you have not made an online payment. Thereafter you will receive an armband.

Disposable camo’s will then be distributed.

You then choose a phaser from the available weapon range.

The sensors of the phaser are attached to a headband - please do not put the headband on before receiving the bandana/cap.
