Northern Virginia Things to Do with Kids-Host Laser Tag Party at Home !!
I always thought that going to laser tag places for birthday party
was overwhelming....kids get exhausted wearing and running around in
heavy vest in dark room. It is fun but last couple of them I attended
for my boys, they mixed another birthday party where kids were much
older and younger were being shot as easy target. I hated to have
younger siblings sit outside and wait out for the fun to be over....it
breaks my heart to keep them away for fun.
So my quest to look for twist on laser tag theme started...I google up
and found some parents had hosted laser tag at home. Further research
landed me to Tom & Kara Withers Battletag Mobile Laser Tag Parties.
Past weekend (of June 25th 2011) we hired them to host my son's 10th
birthday party. And kids are still taking about how much fun they had.
Mr. Tom came in about 30 mins prior to the game start...setup the obstacles for the boys to hide and run during the battle.
He created various battle theme games for the boys..not to give all out
my favorite (and kids was) zombie. One person (birthday boy) starts off
as zombie and if he shoots out the other person/child he/she becomes
zombie. Zombies cannot run so they have to walk like zombie to convert
others.. Even my younger boy who is 5 was having a blast at his
brother's birthday party.
The kids don't have to worry about wearing heavy vest. Mr. Tom was very
accommodating gave a break for drinks and cake. Kids were being kids and
it was purely fun evening. The games are design very well so it does
not have to been at dark.
Over all if you are looking for a birthday party to charm your kids with
something unusually and create memories at your home I would highly
recommend Battletag Laser Tag party.
