Find Your Adventurous Side With A Thrilling Game Of Laser Tag At Battlefield Live SA

Strategy, teamwork and loads of fun, here’s why these action-packed games are excellent for team building, kids parties, keeping your children entertained and having fun outdoors

Fancy beating your colleagues with your flawless combat skills? Maybe you’re looking for something different to do with your kids over the weekend?  A game of laser tag in the great outdoors is an exciting alternative to the humdrum of usual team-building and kids’ activities.“When most people think of laser tag, they think of skulking around in a dark, smoky room playing old-school Laser Quest. They couldn’t be more wrong,” says Renar Wheeler, owner of Battlefield Live SA. “Most people are super surprised to find out that we play our game outdoors in some of Cape Town’s greenest spaces. You know, get the kids outside for a bit. “And, of course, energy, fun and teamwork are at the core of what we do.”

Platoon vs. Platoon
Players are split into teams and can play a variety of games that require strategic planning, teamwork and quick thinking in order to win. The game formats include ‘Capture the Base’, ‘Capture the Flag’, and ‘Domination’, each with a different goal, requiring different skills and tactics. Groups can play at their own pace and fitness level, although once the action starts, naturally everyone’s competitive nature comes to the forefront.

The state-of-the-art laser tag weapons deserve a quick mention. And don’t worry, mom, they are totally safe. There are also five types of laser tag equipment or “weapons” to choose from, that are suitable for different scenarios. It works off bluetooth technology and is controlled via a main remote control. The guns have red dot scopes for accuracy, and players wear a headband that vibrates on the side when the player is ‘shot’, completely painlessly. How cool is that?

For those that are more experienced or want to up the challenge levels, there are also accessories that can be added to gaming scenarios, such as hand grenades, laser tag knives, control points as well as an electronic simulator, which is based on a suitcase bomb, that has to be deactivated.

Kids, Teens or Grownups – It’s For Everyone
"The games are based on strategy, so teams have to work together in order to complete an objective. It’s not based on an individual who performs the best [on their own] but on a team", explains Renar. The team-centric nature of the Battlefield Live set up is exactly what makes it versatile enough to suit any type of occasion from kids’ parties  and corporate events to bachelor parties .

Getting outdoors for a few action-packed hours of laser tag will satisfy the needs of thrill-seekers, while parents or the more cautious among us can feel assured that the experience is totally safe and harmless.

Anyone aged seven years and older is permitted to play and there is no restriction based on physical fitness or ability. The games are flexible and can be adjusted to suit your group needs. Renar adds that they have set up wheelchair-friendly games before and are willing to accommodate anyone.

The Battleground
Wynberg Park in Cape Town hosts all kinds of players, and it is often where you can find special Battlefield Live events such as the Open Sessions, which is open to anyone between the ages of 10 and 60; Altydgedacht Wine Estate in Durbanville is open to kids and corporate events, while Vergenoegd Wine Estate in Stellenbosch is available for corporate events. Groups are also able to use their own venue, for an additional fee. Battlefield Live SA has hosted games at office blocks, and even factories before.

The Perfect Army-Themed Event
The Battlefield Live hosts are open to customising the event as much as you like, and offer many extras including birthday invitations and army tags for the one whose birthday it is for kids’ parties, and drinks and food for corporate events or other group events. Make sure that you book ahead of time so that you can choose your venue, date and party specifications.

Battlefield Live is a great way for kids and adults to blow off some steam on the weekends, or celebrate a special occasion in a unique way that’s bound to make some fun memories and have guests talking long after their army stripes have been earned.

They can accommodate up to 250 people for a corporate team-building event. Group bookings of a minimum of 20 participants for a two-hour Battlefield Live session include drinks on arrival (tea, coffee, bottled water, and alcoholic or non-alcoholic drinks), as well as a fully halaal spit braai with a variety of salads, and scrumptious dessert for lunch.

The Bill:
Wynberg Park: A two-hour Battlefield Live game for 14 people costs R2730 in total (excluding corporate events). This is the minimum event charge, so smaller groups will still have to pay this amount, and larger groups will pay proportionately more.

Altydgedacht Kids’ Special: Pay for 14 and get 3 entries free, plus venue hire of R500, all for R3230.

Corporate team-building dos are priced between R395p/p (for just the game) and R795/p (for the game and a halaal spit braai, venue hire, arrival tea/coffee, 1 x bottle water and 2 x alcoholic/non-alcoholic only,  drinks at Altydgedacht Wine Estate in Durbanville and Vergenoegd Wine Estate in Stellenbosch). There’s no minimum number of people required for laser tag.

Tip: Closed shoes are compulsory and, while the camo face paint is optional, it comes highly recommended to really get into battle mode. The games continue during rainy weather, so be prepared.
