My kids and my husband definitely had a quality time together playing in the arena. This is the family bonding experience we will definitely do again.

Lost and won a couple of times! Well, they say that repetition is the mother of all learning! So I just have to practice more and try again!

Hard Knocks is the world's largest entertainment facility! There's a lot of arenas to choose from and I can't wait to try every mission available!

Money just comes and goes but experiences will last a lifetime! When I go out with friends, we want to do something that is memorable and fun. And this place is both memorable and fun. We'll keep on coming back!

The games take you to another world! I've tried some missions with my friends and I must say that the arena was carefully designed to put your head in the game. Amazing!

It's been a week now and my college buddies still can't get over our game last time. They were bugging me about trying another mission! Little did they know I've already booked us for our next game. This'll be fun!

I was scared to try it at first, but now I'm addicted! It is not painful to get hit at all - unlike paintball. It's loads of fun, and great exercise too! Love this place!

Spent new year here with the family and we had SO MUCH FUN. If this is a sign for what 2015 is going to be like, I would expect a lot more spontaneous adventure with the kids this year.

Their combat cam sets them apart from the competition. That was a great souvenir for my team when they all went home. Thanks!

We really had fun with their wedlock themed game. My guests couldn't say anything bad about it - they said it was the most memorable bachelorette party they have ever attended! Thank you!

Lots of hot girls and cool guys hang-out here. Great way for me to meet people and impress the ladies, especially since I'm one of the most top-ranked players. I love this place!

I prefer my kids going to HardKnocks and being active and social while playing rather than them staying at home playing computer games. I try to take them here whenever I can.

I lost weight after going weekly to HardKnocks. You dodge, you crouch, you walk, you stalk -- you are CONSTANTLY moving and you don't even notice you are already sweating because it is just SO fun. I think it's also because you're in survival mode and don't want to get hit, but still. I am loving the results! Way better than going to the gym!

Reasonably priced birthday packages for my kids. I hope they never get tired of this place, so that every year I won't have to look for a new birthday venue! Highly recommended!

Tried this after I saw that episode of How I Met Your Mother - and I can tell now why this is legendary! Amazing arena - makes you forget of the outside world while you are playing.

The best time I've had in years that did not involve a crazy night out with friends. Can you say: adrenaline rush? Definitely coming back again. Maybe I'll make this my new hobby. Highly recommended!

Perfect venue for corporate team building. The team not only learned a lot, they had a lot of fun and bonding activities too. Feedback was so good, we are considering having an annual laser tag tournament for our company outing. Hopefully that pans out as I would love to come back!

Love the missions - makes me feel like a secret agent of some sort, lol. This place is not just for kids, but adults that are young at heart. It won't hurt to take your kids with you as well though. A good place for the entire family to bond!

This is a good work-out. Since it's so much fun, and adrenaline is pumping through your veins as others chase and shoot at you, you hardly even notice how much you're sweating. I think I've lost two inches off my waist since I started playing. Love it!

I like lasertag more than paintball. It's not messy, it doesn't hurt, and it's air-conditioned. You get all the fun without getting dirty.

When I want to have an hour or two by myself for some pampering, I drop the kids off lasertag and let them play. They're happy, I'm happy, everybody's happy. Sometimes my husband even joins them for some male-bonding time!

With hundreds of employees, organizing a teambuilding activity is tough. And we're tired of the trust falls, and the scavenger hunts--we just wanted something DIFFERENT. And boy, is lasertag different. We had so much fun! Better yet, the venue was able to accommodate our large group. Great way to teach teamwork, without it being so cliche.

I didn't want a bachelor party that would upset my soon-to-be-wife. So my buddies decided to throw me a lasertag party instead! Got the adrenaline pumping, and made me feel like a boy again before stepping up as a family man. Also, it was funny to see the gang with guts hanging, bald spots showing, run around and shooting at each other with lasers. A memory to remember!

When you think of laser tag, sometimes you immediately think of when you were a kid, running around and playing with plastic guns with lasers..this is unlike that childhood experience. This is full throttle, amazing, exhilarating and very combat life-like areas. We had a great time!

Best Laser Tag place I have ever been to. The girls that work there are so friendly and helpful. The two regulators that I go to every time are Electra and Fahrenheit, they are so funny. I highly recommend asking for those two regulators when you go, also I highly recommend this place to anyone who is looking for a good time. The prices are fair and it's so much fun. I've been going every weekend with all of my friends. I love this place.
