The biggest obstacle BaseTactics has to overcome on a daily basis is simply people's perception of the words "laser tag." Even when I hear it I think: "sweaty vest, dark room, pew-pew noises." That's because there's still too many laser tag owners today that are living in the 1980's. Sad thing is - there are hundreds of people that still pay them good money to play in a dark room with sweaty vests!
We think they just don't know what they're missing.
That's why we're not in the laser tag business - not really. We use the term, but just like the two images below are both called a "phone," they're not the same. Same words but neither describes the freedom and general industry overhaul that came with the mobile phone.
In 2007, when Apple announced in a press release that Steve Jobs had re-invented the phone, the concept behind the word phone changed: "MACWORLD SAN FRANCISCO - January 9th, 2007- Apple today introduced iPhone, combining three products — a revolutionary mobile phone, a widescreen iPod with touch controls, and a breakthrough Internet communications device with desktop-class email, Web browsing, searching and maps — into one small and lightweight handheld device." (See More at Apple Press Info).
The world didn't change because an invention had been created. The world changed because customers began to demand it. The "something new" in the market had all the things we were looking for and therefore we began to re-name the phone through our recommendations, reviews, words, and purchases.
BaseTactics (although nowhere near as cool as Apple) is offering a new revolutionary, high-tech option for a simple game we used to call laser tag. Every time one of our customers gets the chance to be immersed in our live action battlefield, they go home, tell their friends, and help re-define the industry. We hope you'll listen up, because here's what they've got to say:
So ive now played laser tag with Base Tactics 2 times and I plan on playing alot more!! They have alot of different game modes, 69 different weapons, and a pretty awesome map that is going to get even crazier!! The owners/instructors are very nice, helpful, and understanding!!! This is a must do!!!! Btw the guns are awesome and extremely accurate!!!Posted on Facebook Reviews by Brandon Taylor on Sunday, June 12, 2016
This was absolutely amazing! Definitely not your typical Lasertag. With many many simulation assault rifles including snipers and a mystery box in which anything from a tommy gun to a pistol can be drawn, this is a must do experience. My friend and I are PSU alumni and we were visiting State College when came across this event looking for Lasertag and we had a blast! The instructors/owners/hosts were fabulous! Very friendly and explained the rules really easily. The terrain for play made me feel like I was in a real battle and the equipment was beyond anything I've ever played with! I'm only sorry I didn't wear camouflage and get some walkies for more strategic play, but my friend and I will be ready next time! (Haha you don't need any of those things to play, we just get competitive). Highly recommend! Can't say enough amazing this about this experience!Posted on Facebook Reviews by Lianna N on Sunday, May 29, 2016
I can not rave enough about this business and these people!!!!! They made my daughters birthday such a magical day! I loved how they worked with the kids and how they helped keep the game moving along at a perfect pace! If you do laser tag anywhere...do it with base tactics!!!! You will not be disappointed!!!Posted on Facebook Reviews by Teresa Dunham on Sunday, April 24, 2016
Had a great time with my son. Not your typical lazer tag, this was so much fun!!! Great price, great staff, great way to spend a few hours. But just be careful where you park your car mine took fire (not really).. But I now have an inside joke with the staff!! Thanks guys for the great time!!!Posted on Facebook Reviews by Matthew Nolder on Saturday, April 16, 2016
I wasn't sure about this at first. Felt a little sceptic when I was watching others playing. Then when I played for the first time, I was hooked. Call it a date night if you want, but it is great fun you can have with your spouse, friends and family. Can't wait for the next event! Get ready to have a blast!Posted on Facebook Reviews by Di Anne Beiler on Sunday, October 11, 2015
