Outdoor laser tag is a variation of arena laser tag played outdoors and is similar to paintball. When compared to paintball, laser tag is painless because it uses no physical projectiles. Laser tag is a team or individual activity where players attempt to score points by tagging targets, with a hand-held infrared-emitting device. Laser tag is popular with a wide range of ages.
Players should wear comfortable, weather-appropriate clothes that they do not mind getting dirty. All players must wear sneakers or comfortable hiking shoes. Open toed shoes or sandals are NOT encouraged on the field
No, the Outdoor Laser Tag units use a harmless infrared technology similar to a TV remote to deliver the “hit” which causes your sensors to light up. In addition to your sensors lighting up when hit, your laser tag unit will emit sounds to indicate that you have been tagged. No physical projectiles are propelled from the gun.
Depending on current weather conditions we will play in light rain. Please call ahead of time if you have an event planned and it is raining to see if it is safe to play.
Laser tag is safe but like any active sport there is a potential for injury. Players run around creating the excitement of the game, but also creating the possibility of accidents. We work very hard to minimize hazards to players.
It is a combination of both. It is an outdoor game like paintball, however, it uses technology that is similar to indoor laser tag. The unique part of Outdoor Laser Tag is the accuracy and range, as well as the unique look and feel of a paintball match.

Every player will need a signed waver and appropriate clothing and shoes. Players under 18 will need a signed wavier by their parent or guardian.
Every game played is point-based and in MOST cases players are allowed to play the full allotted time with scores being tallied at the end of the match. However, under certain circumstances players can elect to start with a predetermined number of lives, which allows players to “eliminate” their opponents earlier in the game. Once eliminated, players are prompted to “return to base” till the match is completed. When you return to base you can check your system to see a summary of your performance throughout the game you just played. Eliminated players cannot shoot or be shot for the duration of the match.
A singular sensor is fixed to the top of the laser gun providing a full, 360 degree hit radius. When you have been hit by another player, a point is scored against you while any hits delivered to an opposing player is counted towards your overall score at the end of the match. The sensor itself provides up-to-date statistics and alerts players once they’ve been hit.
Eliminations are scored independently at the end of the match as a “kill.” Once a player has been hit a final time, provided there’s a set limit, the last player to make contact is awarded the kill as a singular point towards their overall score. Otherwise, players continuously play throughout the match and are alerted via the sensor when they are hit.

Nor Cal Laser Tag guns use infra-red lights to safely “hit” the opponent’s sensors. These beams of light are invisible to the human eye and no more powerful, nor dangerous, than those emitted from your tv remote. Your electronic hopper will notify you when you have either been hit or you hit another player, eliminating the need to physically see the laser beam. That’s what makes the game so much fun to play outdoors in the daytime.
Here at Nor Cal Laser Tag we use the Barracuda System by Predator Games that uses a real Tippman paintball marker which gives kids an outdoor experience not available at existing laser tag facilities! In addition to kids’ parties, the Paintball Laser Tag System can also be used for corporate outings, team practice or even as a rental system or mobile unit to run backyard games.
