Where are we going today?
Get ready team, you are about to embark on your next mission. To succeed, you have to successfully capture the other team by shooting at their high-tech vests with your super awesome phasers. Think you can do that? Sir Yes Sir!
Blazer Tag Adventure Center has the ultimate in Laser Tag. For kids aged 7 and older (it's a bit too scary and intense for anyone younger) they can play, navigate, aim, shoot and work as a team in their super futuristic environment.
Don't worry - it's totally safe and isn't painful! You all wear "tags" which are then shot by a visible laser light beam, and score points this way.
At the end of the game, every player gets a computer-generated scorecard, with all the stats, and you can see who won!
It's a great way for kids to work together as a team, communicate with each other and plan tactics.
Not only do Blazer Tag have the always popular Laser Tag, but they also have Austin Sky Trail.
This will really take you to new heights as it is a ropes course like no other! The course is actually above the arcade, about 20 feet high, and there are seven different and exciting elements to challenge you!
For SkyTrail, there is no age limit but kids must be 48" or taller.
And of course, every great laser tag venue has an arcade! This one has over 50 high-intensity games, from classics to the latest challenges. Collect your tickets and win great prizes!
Good luck Generals!

My daughter had a birthday party here tonight and it was absolutely fantastic. The employees, especially Lauren and Vincent, were all so very nice and you could tell they really enjoyed their jobs. They all went out of their ways to make sure her birthday was fun. The blazer tag arena was great and my daughter loved the sky trail. We will definitely be back and I will be recommending this venue to everyone I know.

Blazer Tag is possibly one of the best laser tag facilities that I've been to. Having multiple stories in one arena really adds challenge to an already-intense game, and it requires a little bit more strategy than aimlessly wandering around firing your laser at random people.
Aside from the laser tag, there are the typical arcade games and refreshments, too. Blazer Tag feels kind of...grungy to me, but every time I come here is a blast.

Went to check out Blazer Tag for an event we did for our Entrepreneurial group I run and had a great time and the staff was supper helpful. I think alot of people discount it because of the area but it was a blast and I am in my 30s

I am 23 and I remembered going here and having a good time here when I was younger. I had gotten a "buy one get one free" coupon from a student hand book and I thought it was a good time to try it again. When I arrived the place was very crowded and and all of the machines had a long line to play on. But that wasnt too bad, I figure, it just means business is good. So I got in line to purchase a blazer tag game, after waiting in line for about 20 min, one of the 3 staff standing behind the counter, doing nothing, decided to open a second register....Read More

This place is a lot of fun! They have a gigantic arena to play laser tag, and some fun things to do in the lobby area. The prices are kind of high, but it's still worth the visit.

When I arrived the place was very crowded and and all of the machines had a long line to play on. But that wasnt too bad, I figure, it just means business is good. So I got in line to purchase a blazer tag game, after waiting in line for about 20 min, one of the 3 staff standing behind the counter, doing nothing, decided to open a second register. I said I would like to use my coupon, at which point they said they decided that instead of honoring the coupon as buy one get one free; management changed it is buy one get one 30% off. I found this a little frustrating, but I decided, oh well, I guess I dont mind spending a little more than I was expecting, so I asked to purchase a game for myself and a friend. They then responded that, while it is not mentioned anywhere on the coupon, it was intended that the coupon can only be used on one person, So I can buy 2 games for myself with the second one being discounted, and my friend has to purchase separately. At this point I was frustrated and left.
