How do I look into booking a Laser Tag party?

 Go to our  “Check Dates/Book Now” page and send in your date and time and we’ll respond letting you know if it is available.  Just confirm and that’s it!

Will the kids know what to do?

That’s why we bring a Game Coach!  Game Coaches will give instructions prior to the start of the first game and will fully instructs guests in game play and safety.

Should I be concerned about safety during Laser Tag?

HyperSpace Starcade Laser Tag is fun and safe!  No pain or mess like paintball!  There is no actual “Laser,” but just a beam of infrared light.  It’s the same technology that your TV remotes use.  We will give safety instructions to guests prior to game play and do a quick scan of the game play area to reduce hazards.  Due to the nature of the game (running, hiding, etc.) all guests can sign a “hold harmless” waiver prior to participating in any Laser Tag game.  We want all your guests to be safe!  Download waiver here.

What about bad weather?

In the event of heavy rain or hazardous weather, we will make every effort to reschedule your party.  Or you can choose to move the party indoors if your venue can support game play.

Should I schedule Laser Tag at the beginning or towards the end of the party?

We suggest that you plan for Laser Tag first and eat later. This way, guests aren’t running around immediately after eating and they can work up an appetite while playing!

What if I have more than 20 guests at the party? Is there an extra charge?

Certainly not!  Bring them on!  We provide laser taggers for up to 20 guests, but we can always rotate guests through games to be sure everybody gets plenty of play time to play.  For large group rotations most rounds last about 5 mins with a couple minutes before and after each round.

Do I have to pay for the party in advance?

Payment is required in advance. Our reservations go quickly.  In order to reserve your date you must pay online after your booking request has been reviewed and accepted.  For non-profit events who must pay in a different manner (purchase order, etc.) please contact us.

Do I Leave a Tip?

Tipping gratuity is suggested at 10 – 15% and is optional. It is our pleasure to have the opportunity to serve you. Our Game Coaches are there to make sure that your group is making the most of our high-tech fun.  We tutor, inspire and entertain.  Please consider us as you would other forms of entertainment and service where tipping for good service is a great idea, but not required. We appreciate you! If you are feeling up to making our day awesome then please take a quick moment to leave a fun GOOGLE rating/review, CASH tip, VENMO to @HyperSpaceStarcade or PAYPAL to

What time will you be arriving?

The Game Coaches will 20 – 30 minutes ahead of your party time to set up the field and allow your party to start at the designated start time. 

What type of Fundraising can HyperSpace Starcade do?

Our attractions are a huge entertainment draw for families at nearly any event. We can set up tournament-style or general-style gaming to help raise money for an event or simply to just have fun with a large group of people. Other fundraising activities include admission tickets, school backpack flyer referral programs and silent auction gift cards.


How to raise $2,405 in 4 hours for your nonprofit organization fundraiser

If you decide to book a 4 hour concurrent combo it is both laser tag and our video game trailer attractions running at the same time. We normally charge $935 ($825 for 3hrs and $110 for an additional hour). However, some selected nonprofit organizations receive 15% off making the total price =$795.
We can easily handle throughput groups of approx 20 players at once every 15 mins inside the game trailer and another 20 playing laser tag every 10 mins. Let’s say for example that your fundraiser will have that type of throughput.  That is 40 players x 4 groups per hr x 4hrs = 640 players. 640 players x $5 admission tickets = $3,200 revenue. $3,200 revenue – $795 price = $2,405 raised for your fundraiser event!
VR is hot right now because of the cutting edge experience it brings for all ages! Virtual Reality gaming experiences in venues like shopping malls easily charge $30 per player for only 10 mins of play. If you would like to increase the funds raised, have more stuff to draw in guests and raise your event’s excitement level considerably then consider asking us about adding on 6 VR gaming systems to your 4 hour event. That will create a third attraction at your event for just $128 more. Our game coaches will then operate THREE awesome attractions at your event (Game Truck, Tag & VR) you can sell tickets for to help you raise even more funds and put your event over the top!
