80's Corner


Remember Laser Tag? Yep - it started in the 1980's, and you could actually buy laser tag gear in places like WalMart, K-Mart and the like. I doubt you can do this anymore, but they do have Laser Tag "arenas" around the country, where you can take your laser tag skills and see how they compare to others ... I think we have one in the King of Prussia Mall (or at least we used to have one).

My friends and I all had Laser tag gear, but all we had was the gun and the hit-counter thingy that you placed around your chest. In the outside, Laser tag wasn't very good - I don't think the hit counter thingy performed well in the outside, but I hear it's supposed to be pretty cool indoors.

Ah, I can still remember running around with my laser tag gear and my acid-washed jeans ... good times.

We had that exact one you have a picture of. You're right that they sucked outdoors... but playing inside or in at the Laser Tag arena was awesome. I think we still have one around, kids have birthday parties there and such. I'm going to have to remember that one for my next party.

Dude - me and the guitarist from Butlik had a floor maintenance job LOCKED IN WALMART OVERNIGHT BY OURSELVES back in the 80's.

Ask me if we broke out LaserTag....
