Where to play Laser Tag in Essex

Laser tag, laser quest, quasar, what ever you call it the game generally involves running around a dark room with a laser gun and trying to shoot players on an opposite team as much as possible while avoiding getting the targets on your unit shot. It is a short, but fast paced activity which is great for groups of friends and birthday parties. Great fun for adults too. If you want to play laser tag indoors (mostly) in Essex then here is a list of the venues that hold regular sessions. Two of these venues run laser tag games outside.
