If you have kids who enjoy playing laser tag or if you as an adult enjoy playing this fun, exciting game, you can enjoy it while visiting New York City. Like other activities, many people reserve this activity strictly for vacation or special leisure times, which makes it that much more fun.
There are two locations in New York City that have laser tag facilities. One is in Queens; the other one is in Brooklyn.
New York City Paintball and Laser Tag
If you can get to the 59th Street Bridge, the Long Island Railroad, the Long Island Expressway, or the public transportation stops in Times Square and at Grand Central Station, you can easily get to New York City Paintball and Laser Tag in Queens. Once you're there, you'll have over 32,000 square feet to run, duck, and hide from your friends as they try to hit those areas on your chest and back that will activate the signal to let everyone know you've been struck.
All the running, ducking, dodging, and other physical activity will have you pleasantly tired by the end of your trip. However, as soon as you're rested up, you'll be planning your next visit.
If you live in Brooklyn, you may be able to walk to this family entertainment center. If not, you can use the subway, a bus, a taxi, or simply drive in from either the Belt or Jackie Robinson Parkways.
Once you're there, you're ready to suit up and play laser tag. If there's a wait before it's your turn, enjoy some of the other activities that are available at Mad Funn. If you get right in but you're not ready to call it a night after you finish your laser tag round, use that time to take advantage of all the other activities.
The staff strives to make Mad Funn a family-oriented, safe place so that parents don't have to worry about their children. They can relax and watch them run off all that excess energy that children seem to have an endless supply of.
