Whether you’ve got kids or simply want to reconnect with your inner child, laser tag and game arcades are a great way to have some fun!

Luckily there are some great venues to enjoy right here in Parramatta. For kids, these are great activities during school holidays, long weekends and birthday parties. For adults, they’re a fun way to bond with friends, family and even co-workers. 

Laser tag in Parramatta

Laser tag is the perfect activity for kids and teens, making it a great option when deciding how to spend an afternoon with friends and family. It’s fun for adults too. Laser tag is a great way to have some exciting competition while sneaking in a bit of exercise too. 

Laser tag combines the strategy of paintball with the digital excitement of video games. While it’s important to avoid getting hit by other people’s laser guns, it doesn’t actually hurt if you do get caught out. This makes it a little less intimidating for kids and easy to turn into a family activity.

For laser tag in Parramatta, head over to Code Red Laser. At Code Red, teams must defend their base and tag opponents to win. Code Red Laser has a 4-level maze that’s full of evolving twists and turns, making each time you go a different challenge.

For a new arcade experience with tech that didn’t exist when you were growing up, try the XD Dark Ride, a multi-sensory interactive attraction that blends a competitive game into a 3D ride.
