Laser tag can be lots of fun for people of all ages. If you have never done it before, however, you might be unsure of what to expect. First, you should know how to dress and prepare for a fun day of laser tag. These are a few tips to ensure that you're fully ready for the game!
Wear Comfortable Clothing
First of all, you'll probably find yourself running, crouching and darting around when you're playing laser tag, so you'll need to wear clothing that will keep you comfortable without restricting your movement. Loose-fitting clothes can be a good choice, but make sure that your clothing isn't loose enough that you'll have to worry about tripping and falling, such as with pants that are too long.
Wear the Right Shoes
You're going to want to wear comfortable, properly-fitting shoes. Wear flats; any type of heel might make you more likely to trip or can get in the way of you running and having fun. Also, make sure that your shoes are not open-toed; you don't want someone to accidentally step on your toes, and you don't want to stub a toe on anything when you're running around. If your shoes have laces, make sure that they are tightly tied so that you don't trip over your shoelaces while you're playing laser tag.
Avoid Light Colors
It's a good idea to wear darker clothing if you want to be inconspicuous. Many laser tag venues use blacklights, which will make your white or other light-colored clothing really stand out. If you don't want to be hit by an enemy, this isn't a good idea! Instead, wear black or other dark colors so that you can't be easily seen.
Turn Your Cell Phone Down
If you generally keep your cell phone on your person, such as in your pocket, make sure that you turn the volume all the way down, or turn your phone completely off. You don't want your phone to ring and call attention to you while you're playing! Plus, the venue might not appreciate it if your phone goes off during the safety training video or instructional period.
Dressing and preparing for a fun day of laser tag is easier than you probably think. Follow these tips, and you're sure to be completely prepared for a big day of laser tag. Then, you won't have to worry about fussing with your clothes when you're trying to have a good time.
