Vested vs. Tactical Laser Tag

When it comes to planning your laser tag business, there is one big decision that needs to be made first; Vested Traditional, or Tactical laser tag.

Let us summarize these two systems for a better idea of what makes sense for your business.

Traditional vested laser tag is the more common and familiar type of laser tag, usually played in arenas with dim lighting, fog machines, and an exciting sound track. The players wear vests with sensors and multiple LED’s that detect and light-up in various patterns when tagged by an opponent. The taggers are usually shaped like phasers and have on-board control or touch sensitive screens and features. Vested systems are best used for a younger demographic with fun games for solo and team play, however some systems tend to lack a degree of realism in ergonomics and game play.

Tactical laser tag is a newer and more realistic type of laser tag, usually played in outdoor fields or urban settings with natural or artificial obstacles. The players wear headbands or lighter combat type vests with sensors that detect when they are hit by the infrared beams from the opponents’ gear. The equipment offer an older design esthetic, and have advanced controls and features such as recoil, on-board sound effects, and scopes. The game objectives are more mission based, or scenarios that involve teamwork, strategy, and communication, offering challenging, immersive, and competitive fun for all ages, but attractive more so for older players.

Previously tactical systems were the sole domain of outdoor fun. However, that is no longer the case – tactical offers the indoor operator a great choice as a primary system, or in the case of S.M.A.R.T. can be played as a cross-over arena experience that includes both types of game play.

As you can see, tactical and traditional laser tag have different advantages and disadvantages depending on your preferences. If you want a casual and fun game that is easy to play and suitable for everyone, you might prefer traditional laser tag. If you want a more intense and realistic game that requires skill and coordination and appeals to a broader range of players, you might prefer tactical laser tag.
