PETERBOROUGH PREMIER LASERTAG VENUE
Bedlam Lasertag at Thorney is the perfect choice for corporate and school groups seeking a team-building activity with a twist; hen, stag and birthday parties looking for an experience to remember; plus groups of friends who simply want an action-packed day away from their normal routine.
Laser Tag is a safe, environmentally friendly and painless game compared to others such as paintball or airsoft as no projectiles are fired. The guns or taggers do not actually emit a laser but an infrared beam similar to the one found in your TV remote. This means no protective goggles or clothing needs to be worn and the game play is completely safe for all ages however we do operate a minimum age of 7+. Your combat abilities will be tested whilst completing objectives such as Search & Destroy, Domination, Ambush, Last Man Standing, Zombies, good old Capture the Flag and many more scenarios.
