THE BUSINESS OF LASER TAG
Laser Tag Equipment has held a strong central position within the amusement attractions industry, with laser tag systems providing many fun center operators a reliable and consistent revenue stream.
In the amusement and family entertainment center indoor business there are a few key activities : Laser Tag, Go-Karts, Indoor Playgrounds, Amusement Rides, Coin Operated Games and Blacklight Miniature Golf being the most prominent
For the successful operator, each activity has to balance a delicate tight-rope of purchase cost, entertainment value, operating costs, space requirements and return on investment. As with many fun center attractions, when it comes to Laser Tag Equipment, it’s all about through-put.
Most commercial equipment suppliers tend to demonstrate the market power of their laser tag system with graphs and illustrations that indicate 100% usage and a fast time to return on investment calculation. “If you have 20 laser tag vests and run at 90% to 100% capacity, here’s how fast our laser tag equipment will drive a return on your investment.”
This can sometimes be deceiving. Other than a few opening weekends, keeping your laser tag business running at even 50% of capacity year-to-year is a challenge at best.
Your laser tag systems, battery life, arena maze layout, number of players and your complete amusement attractions activity mix all play a vital role in keeping your guests excited and motivated to come back and play again and again.
