LaserTag is safer than other similar sports

No pain in laser tag

Paintball and airsoft are dangerous types of sports, since in any case, no matter how well you protect yourself, you have to deal with pellets carrying large kinetic energy. Even though, players tend to wear masks and thick clothes (which causes difficulty when playing in hot seasons) in airsoft and in paintball, there are places where getting hit can cause severe pain, especially if it is neck and hands, as well as places where clothes are usually very close to the body – the buttocks, knees, elbows, etc.

Airsoft and paintball usually limit the minimum distance at which you can shoot and where you can deliver considerable pain or significant damage to an opponent, but not everyone keeps up these distances. Because of this, women and children play these sports very rarely, and in some countries, children are generally prohibited by law to participate in these sports.

Laser tag gives no pain and damage since there is no striking element - pellet. Pellet contact is replaced by vibration and a flickering sensor on the headband or vest. Therefore, the minimum distance also is not limited. You can shoot with half a meter with no real physical damage to an opponent at all.
