Laser Storm Pittsburgh

A family entertainment center in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Laser Storm Pittsburgh offers a large laser tag arena, climbing wall simulator and arcade. Visitors unfamiliar with Laser Storm can request a tour before the 20-minute game process commences in a futuristic arena filled with barriers, police beacons, energizers, base stations, sentries and more.

The interactive laser tag adventure has each player in the heat of the action while suited up with lightweight vests, headsets and phaser in hand. Points are awarded for tagging the base station of your opponent and by deactivating other players. The object of the game is to outscore the opposing team, which makes this a popular destination for birthday parties, families, group outings and team building.
