If you hear the words, “where a kid can be a kid,” coming from your Fairlawn, Ohio television or Akron, Ohio radio, you probably know instantly what’s being advertised. But what about a place “where an adult can be a kid”? Really, is it fair that kids get to have all the fun while adults are relegated to the roles of chaperones and chauffeurs? No way! Well, there’s good news for adults in Summit County, Ohio who want to reduce stress and feel like a kid again, just for a bit. It’s WhirlyBall & Laser-Sport in Bedford Heights, Ohio, and it offers games for grown-ups that give adults a chance to escape the real world for just a bit, grab a drink with friends, and just play. They’re also games for groups, so be sure to bring a friend (or twenty)!
If you have children, you have probably been roped into a game of hide-and-seek or two. And, if you’re like many adults, it probably doesn’t hold quite the same appeal that it did when you were a child. Somehow, the magic has just worn off. Maybe it’s because, as adults, we need a bit more of a challenge? That’s where WhirlyBall & Laser-Sport’s games for grown-ups come in. Consider if you were both hiding and seeking at the same time. While also strapped into a harness bearing a “target” and wielding a futuristic weapon of light. No, not that light-weapon—a laser gun! Figured it out yet? It’s laser-tag, of course. But it’s so much more than a glorified game of hide and seek combined with a game of tag. This game takes strategy and skill, and also has a pretty specific set of rules that must be followed. Don’t worry too much about the rules, though. Like most things, these rules are in place to keep everyone safe, and won’t do a thing to impede your fun.
No matter how well hidden you think you are, if your strategy is to just hang out in one spot in the laser-tag arena, forget about it. In this game, you are both the hunter and the hunted. While it’s true that you lose points for taking a hit, the only way to get those points back and win the game for your team is to get out there and launch an assault on the opposing teams and their base stations! Have a few friends who aren’t participating? Well, WhirlyBall & Laser-Sport are games for groups. So, don’t think for a second that you’ll be able to exaggerate tales of your laser-tag prowess—the lobby score monitor posts both team and individual scores, so you have to stealthily make your way through the arena and do your team proud!
This game is sure to have your heart pumping (in a good way!). Energetic music, fog, and special lighting effects make it easy to reduce stress by leaving your troubles at the door and giving yourself over to the fun and games. There’s no better way to feel like a kid again in the Summit County area or anywhere else. It’s a good thing that twenty-four vests are available at Laser-Sport. Your trip from Akron or Fairlawn to Bedford Heights, home of the WhirlyBall & Laser-Sport complex, is definitely a “the more, the merrier” adventure.
Before you start letting everyday life in Fairlawn, Ohio get the better of you, gather up twenty-three of your nearest and dearest (remember, they’re games for groups!), and head out for a night of games for grown-ups!
