For a military-style combat adventure, there are two main choices: laser combat, which is a much more realistic and sophisticated experience than laser tag, and paintball. When comparing the two, it’s very clear that laser combat is the better choice.
“Laser combat utilizes infrared light to monitor and score each shot,” said Doug Huckbody, owner of Battle House Laser Combat. “This method of using invisible light is completely harmless, using the same technology as your tv remote. Paintball involves the use of projectiles, which can cause injuries and painful welts on all parts of the body.” Paintball participants are required to wear helmets and protective eyewear, and most wear heavily padded clothing.
Paintball is played in an outdoor course, subject to inclement weather. Laser combat is generally played in an indoor facility; Battle House offers a 15,000 sq. ft., multi-level indoor arena, so the weather outside is irrelevant.
