Bring the Video Game Love into Action with Laser X was made possible with a Laser X bundle of product to review.
Do you have kids who love to play video games, but fight you on going outside to play?
Looking for a way to get the physically active and interacting with each other?
Sadly, the answer to those questions is a resounding yes in our house. Unless my husband and I pull them from it, the boys are drawn towards all the electronic things. Since arriving in Colorado and my taking a job that has me gone for 40+ hours a week, it has only gotten worse.
When I heard about the new additions to the Laser X product line and the opportunity to review, I was ready to sign them up. We have the Laser X 2 pack from a review last year, but they are buried in the boxes left unpacked.
What is Laser X?
Simply put, Laser X brings the fun laser tag experience to your home with an updated, technologically-advanced laser blaster system.
All Laser X sets work together, so games can have as few as two players – or the whole neighborhood can play together. Advanced sensors in the Laser X blaster know when players are blasting, being hit, running or hiding. An interactive “coach” uses this information to give players tips and tricks throughout the game.
The receiver vest keeps tracks of hits. After 10 hits, players are eliminated from the game. Players can choose to be on teams or select “rogue” mode where it’s every player for his or herself.
Laser X can be played outside in bright sunlight or in the dark. It is available in sets that equip two players for $49.99 or that equip one player for $24.99 at Target.com and other retailers. The Long Range Blaster ($39.99) and Gaming Tower ($39.99) are also included in review pack.
My Boys Thoughts on the Laser X Components
All you need to get started is the right screwdriver and several AAA batteries and a few AA batteries. Once each unit is fully set for power it is game on!
My 14-year-old is enamoured with the Long Range Blaster. He loves it so much that he won’t share with his brothers. I’m sure part of the appeal is the 400-foot range, so he can ‘get’ his brothers from a great distance than they can.
Not that the regular blasters have a terrible shooting range with accuracy up to 200 feet.
The Gaming Tower is something that they are still getting used to using. There are 9 built-in games, some for single players.
We took it to the neighbourhood park on a cold Colorado morning to test it out. As much fun as they had testing it, the need for warmth won out. With warmer weather headed this way for the next few days, we may be back there or using it inside. Bonus for inside is they can create mazes with all the boxes left unpacked in the downstairs space.
