Laser tag @ Laserdome

Saturday, September 13th, we’ll have a fun and thrilling evening playing laser tag! For those of you who don’t know this game… well, it’s quite simple. You’ll be equipped with a west and a special plastic gun. It’s all about shooting others while of course avoiding being shot yourself. And yes, it’s totally harmless, and it doesn’t hurt when you get hit.

The price is 15$ per person for 2 games of 15 minutes each. The game starts at 4pm, so we’ll meet up at 4:40pm. And remember not to be late. Otherwise the empty spaces will be overtaken by other people. You’ll need to sign up for this event Wednesday, September 11th, at the very latest. In this way it will be easier for me to make a group reservation. You can sign up here. You won’t have to pay in advance, since we’ll be able to pay separately at the entrance.

This cool event will take place at Laserdome, 2455 Dollarton Hwy #110 in North Vancouver.
