Laser Tag as a Business
If you already know what Laser Tag is and how it differs from other military/sports-related games like paintball and airsoft, you can grasp the pros of starting Laser Tag as your own business.
- Cost savings
Firstly, you do not need to maintain your office. All you need is a small garage, basement or any enclosed space for storing your equipment. This immediately saves you a few hundred dollars in costs per month. If you are just starting out, you do not need a salesman or a games master, you can hire them when you don't have time to promote and host games on your own. This also saves you hundreds or thousands of dollars in the early stages.
- Broad audience coverage and security
Unlike other similar activities, such as paintball or airsoft, Laser Tag, in fact, has no age limits, because there is no such thing as pain involved. Airsoft is restricted to persons under 18 or 21 years old (depending on your state laws) because its pellet kinetic energy can cause pain. Paintball is also dangerous for children because even with the protective clothes, the pellet can hit a child in the neck or hand or a child might take off their mask during the battle.
Since infrared rays are used to tag the enemy in LaserTag, players of all ages, even the youngest, are good to go. This can broaden your audience with birthday parties and other children's parties.
- Low cost of starting a business
The basic kit for starting a Laser Tag business involves from 10 to 12 taggers and a number of devices for several game scenarios and settings. You can choose the Laser Tag Equipment you need. It is nearly $2000 for starting your own business.

- Relative relocatability of your Laser Tag business
If you move to another region, all you have to do is to carry the equipment. It will fit in the trunk of most average cars.
- High customer loyalty
Laser Tag captivates people, pretty much like all other exciting and passionate youth sports. Clubs operating on our equipment have customers who have been playing every weekend for the past 7 years. Over time, you will have permanent teams, be able to host competitions, scenario games, etc., which itself increases the flow of new loyal customers coming through your doors.
- Use Ready-Made infrastructure from other sports as your locations
You can rent a location from other sports such as paintball or airsoft.
However, if you have an opportunity, it’s better to build your own location.
- No special knowledge required to start a LaserTag business
You don't need any know-how to start this business, but of course, it is desirable to have at least a homepage and a group in a social network.
- Extremely low competition in the United States
In the US, there are very few Laser Tag clubs. If there are any, it is likely the arena Laser Tag, which also can be used as a source of regular customers.
- Willing and able customers
The US are a home to massive and well-developed paintball and airsoft clubs that have a lot of regular customers, some of which are sure to try your LaserTag and may become your loyal customers.
