How safe are the Laser taggers ?
All of our Laser Taggers are 100% safe. They do not use real lasers, they use a narrow beam of harmless InfraRed light (the same as your TV remote) to send a shot. When this beam hits another tagger or the headband it registers a hit.
How can I make sure that my guests don't get hurt ?
In order to make your event as safe as possible we suggest that you think about any risks and how to reduce them. This is called a Risk Assessment. Here are a few things to think about.
- Are there any obstacles that could hurt players if they run into them? (low hanging tree branches, garden taps). How can you make these safe?
- Are there any trip hazards? If so, how will you protect players from these?
- What will you do if it is wet? The Taggers can be used in wet conditions, but cannot be used whilst it is raining. Will water make the paying area too slippery?
- First Aid. Do you have anyone with basic first aid training? is there a first aid kit?
What rules should we use when playing ?
In addition to the risk assessment the following rules need to be explained and enforced for all players.
- No fast running - instead encourage the players to move quietly and slowly so that they are not seen as easily.
- No climbing objects (trees, furniture, fences)
- Keep at least 1m away from other players
- No hitting anything or anyone with the taggers
- No throwing or dropping the taggers
