Company History

Mobile Laser Tag was founded in 2011

Laser Tag SA, was formally known as Play Laser Tag and then renamed in early 2012 to our current trade name Mobile Laser Tag. At our inception we decided to start out as a plain and simple entertainment rental service that only catered for Rental events and functions in the greater Gauteng region based in Pretoria back in 2011.

The Head Office and Administration was relocated to our Cape Town branch in January 2012 thanks to rapid expansion and a growing reputation.

First to build owner operated businesses In keeping with our “partners rather than competitors” vision, Mobile Laser Tag has built up brand partnerships across South Africa with our unique approach of making Laser Tag more accessible to everyone.

The Laser Tag Creed

Mobile Laser Tag takes made the decision to subscribe to the LaserTag Creed. This Creed is generally thought to serve as a basic guideline. Practically demonstrates a Code of Conduct. For more information one can refer to the USA LAZERTAG CREED

The Laser Tag Creed is a simple creed that can be shared by laser sport players around the world. The creed should be memorized by all players, given to new players, and recited before gaming begins. It is a summary of the full code of conduct (below), but is not a replacement for the complete code and adherence thereof.

 

 

Laser Tag is a non contact sport.
All players are created equal.
Zero tolerance for cheating.
Exit the play area the same as I enter it.
Respect authority.
The dome is my target, not the player.
Aalways check my equipment.
Good sportsmanship is the key to fun.

About the Games

Games for Laser Tag

Play indoors or outdoors games such as elimination, last man standing, capture the flag or Mexican stand-off or create your own variation. Role-play or theme games based on movies like Star Wars or create a combat simulation (re-enactment) of World War 2.

Games, Missions & Objectives

To successfully complete your games or mission, your and/or team will have to achieve one or more objectives!

Simply eliminating the opposing team isn’t always good enough and you may have to  balance your attacks on the opposition with achieving the goals handed down to your team. Some missions are designed for beginners, while others offer challenging levels of play to beginners and veterans alike.

Each mission has numerous options designed to challenge even the most seasoned warrior, and for the truly elite, we combine missions to give you even more victory requirements!

Elimination Games

Elimination games are perfect to get to know our equipment and is provides an ideal platform to teach players the basics of playing LaserTag!

First time players are able to experience a live training session while also being able to get assistance from the field marshal if needed. We find that everyone seems to be ready after a quick 5-minute session. Both new and regular players prefer starting with a simple game of Elimination. Senior and advanced players use the first elimination game to “get their eye in”, calibrate the marker and even check their accuracy!

Before each game your field marshal will explain the rules and specific game settings of each game. While it seems to be self-explanatory, we have outlined “how to play” to make it easy to learn the rules.

Objective

  • Shoot everyone on the other team before they shoot you.

 Difficulty

  • Easy

Who can play elimination?

  • Elimination games can be played as individuals or in teams.

How long is each game?

Elimination games can be set-up as follows…

  • Time – a time limit can be set in minutes and seconds. These times can be customized by the field marshal to suit you or pre-set according to our standard time settings.
  • Health – number of lives. Lives can be set from 1 – 999. These are either preset settings or customized to suit your booking.

These settings are based on your specific booking times , and may vary at the field marshals discretion. Our experienced field marshals consider factors such as age, skill level and/or ability when applying limitations.

What are the game variations or settings?

LaserTag offers 2 (two) versions of elimination games

Direct Elimination

  • Each player (in team or individual games) is allocated with one life.
  • Once hit or “tagged” that player is knocked out of the game

Fixed Elimination 

  • Each player or team is allocated a fixed number of lives (shown as Health)
  • Players can continue playing after being hit or tagged until they run out of “lives”

The winner is declared or determined as follows:

  • The last team or player standing
  • The team or player still “alive” when game ends or
  • The team or player still “active” after everyone has been eliminated

Speed Tag Games

Speed-tag derives its origin from the world of paintball with 2 important differences:

  1. There is NO PAIN as no projectiles are fired
  2. Clothing remains CLEAN

As the name suggests, Speed Tag games are fast-paced and quick games. The game is normally played on a smaller field. This allows rapid and much higher scores.

SpeedTag is best suited to energetic players that enjoy the excitement and thrill in playing hard and fast.  As a favorite game among the younger players, mostly boys (and a few extravert girls we have met) the extreme pace and speed often results in shorter games.

Forget televisions, cell-phones, computers and indoors… Speedtag has also become a favorite with parents hosting birthday parties as children get both physical and mental exercise while enjoying the outdoors!

Objective

 The goal of each team (or individual) is to tag as many hits as possible.

Difficulty

Medium

Who can play Speed-Tag?

Elimination games can be played as individuals or in teams. Best suited for energetic players!

How long is each game?

Speed tag requires a time limit for the game – around ten minutes (10 min) is usually reccomended, but depending on the number of players it could be longer or shorter.

  • Time – a time limit can be set in minutes and seconds. These times can be customized by the field marshal to suit you or pre-set according to our standard time settings.

Capture the Flag Games

Capture the Flag games

Capture the Flag is one of the most basic variations of LaserTag, but it is also one of the most fun to play. While the concept is simple and easy to grasp, you can invent countless strategies and techniques to keep you constantly coming back for more.

Capture-the-flag starts with a minimum of two bases at opposing ends of your field and position a flag at each of these bases. Flags can be hung or displayed at each base. 

The basic game works on eliminating the opposing teams players and then returning their flag to your base.

Objective

  • The goal of each team is to capture the opposing flag and return it to their own base without getting hit or eliminated

Difficult

Easy – Medium

Who can play elimination?

How long is each game?

Capture the flag requires a time limit for the game – twenty minutes (20 min) is usually is about right, but depending on the number of players it could be longer or shorter.

  • Time – a time limit can be set in minutes and seconds. These times can be customized by the field marshal to suit you or pre-set according to our standard time settings.
  • Health – number of lives. Lives can be set from 1 – 999. These are either preset settings or customized to suit your booking.

These settings are based on your specific booking times and may vary at the field marshals discretion. Our experienced field marshals consider factors such as age, skill level and/or ability when applying limitations.    

If a player is carrying the flag when he is hit, he must immediately drop it. A team may not move their own flag unless an opposing player has first moved their flag and is eliminated, then the team may return the flag to its starting position if they desire.What are the game variations or settings?

Who is the winner?

The winner is declared or determined as follows:

  • The team or player still “alive” returns the flag of the opposing team to their base

Here are the basic versions of some of the games we commonly play:

  • Team Elimination – Games 
    • A nod to traditional combat sports, our traditional warm-up mission has teams attempt to eliminate the opposing team, but there’s a twist: dead players re-spawn (re-enter play at full health and ammo), so you’ll have to fight through the entire team for the entire mission…highest score wins! 
    • Teams must capture the opposition’s flag while defending their own.  With numerous variants, CTF is a classic that can easily be incorporated into other missions.
  • KotH 
    • Teams fight to control a location of strategic significance.
  • Escalating Assault
    • Defenders must face overwhelming odds and hold off as long as they can….sometimes reinforcements are on the way, and sometimes it’s just a vanguard action to give your forces time to retreat.
  • VIP Extraction games
    • One team attempts to extract a rescued P.O.W. from the conflict, while the other team(s) attempt to stop them. Control of the extraction point is key, but watch out for the extraction team calling for pickup at a different point!
  • Intel games
    • Teams must scour the field for lost intelligence and have their cryptologist piece it together. Protect your crypto or you won’t be able to break the code!
  • Recon games
    • Teams must scout strategically assigned areas of the sector and plant tracking devices, but be warned: enemy recon teams are nearby.
  • Zombie Infestation games
    • A classic! Defenders must hold out against the living dead, whose numbers swell with every casualty. Can humanity last until reinforcements arrive? Are reinforcements even coming??
  • Medic games
    • Each team has a combat medic who can patch players up and get them back in action. Defend your medic and win the war of attrition!
  • Domination games
    • A mission from our advanced library. While simultaneously achieving their primary objectives defined by another mission (Elimination, CTF, VIP Extraction), teams strive to have the most unanswered eliminations (number of opposing team members taken down in a row without losing a teammate).
