Laser tag isn’t just fun, it’s also a great way to get some exercise in.
But if you’ve never played before, jumping into your first laser tag game can seem daunting. As long as you pay attention to the instructions, you can survive a game and have a good time.
Here are a few safety tips that’ll help you get through your first game.
1. Pay Attention to the Safety Instructions
The best way to stay safe during a game of laser tag is to pay attention to the safety instructions.
But don’t just listen to them. Stick to them.
The rules are there to make sure no one gets hurt during the game. If you have any questions about the safety instructions, make sure you ask. Your instructor will be happy to sort out any confusion.
You can also find your instructor during the game if something goes wrong or you need help.
2. Don’t Climb on Anything
If you try to climb on the obstacles, you’ll probably fall. If you fall, you’ll probably get hurt.
Your feet should stay on the ground at all times.
This also means you shouldn’t get on your hands and knees and crawl. Many laser tag arenas are dark, so if you’re crawling, other players might not be able to see you. They can trip over you and hurt themselves or hurt you (or both).
Crouching is usually okay, but always ask your instructor to make sure.
3. Don’t Leave the Boundary of the Game
You should never leave the boundary of the game (unless your instructor says otherwise). Depending on where you play, the areas outside the game can be dark or unsafe.
Besides, you won’t have much fun if you are outside the game area.
4. Don’t Run
The adrenaline of the game can make you itch to run away from other players, but don’t do this.
Remember, laser tag is often dark.
If you run, you could trip over a step or an obstacle. You might even run into an obstacle or another person and hurt yourself. Always walk at normal speed during a laser tag game.
5. Give People Their Space
You should never make physical contact with another player during the game.
Never shove, hit, or trip another player. It’s a good idea to stay several feet away from all other players during the game.
An accidental bump is nothing to worry about in most cases, but you should never touch another player on purpose. Do your best to stay out of everyone’s personal space as you play.
Have Fun During Your Laser Tag Game
If you break any of these rules during your laser tag game, your instructor will remove you from the game. So it’s important to know the safety rules and follow them.
But don’t let them keep you from having fun.
As long as you follow the rules, you can survive a game of laser tag and have a blast at the same time.
