Laser Tag is a version of tag played with electronic laser guns that will keep teen boys occupied for hours. Players engage in a laser tag competition while inside a black light-lit obstacle course. The goal is to be the last person standing by avoiding being shot with a laser. Most laser tag locations offer birthday packages, including a room for hosting the eating portion of the celebration. Some establishments will even rent the entire venue for private parties.
