A big thank you to Alley V for the free laser tag games!
Earlier this month on the “Good Life Moms” site, I wrote about how our family likes to enjoy “March Madness” together. (Only one of my Final Four Teams made it, but that is a lament for another day …) That week, we also happened to celebrate “National Ice Cream Cone Day” as well.
Today we decided to add another holiday to our arsenal … “National Laser Tag Day.” What better place to celebrate than at Alley V in Omaha. Earlier this month, a friend and I enjoyed their “Mayhem of March” to start off tournament watching. Today I was excited to return with my whole family to let them try out all of the games!
Somehow until now, I have never played laser tag before. Going into this experience, I was bit worried that perhaps there would be a few tears (hopefully not from me but from the kids!), but everyone did surprisingly well. Maybe because you are never exactly sure when you are “hit.” At least I wasn’t. The competitive side of me is quite sad to admit that I had the lowest score of anyone in my family. I am not sure if it was because I was not aiming correctly, was too slow on the draw or because I was walking around with our daughter for much of the time. Okay, enough excuses. I lost.
That being said, there is something rather thrilling about sneaking about in a room filled with fluorescent objects with a gun in hand. Especially when they started playing music from “James Bond.” I could get rather addicted to laser tag. (Shh, don’t tell my kids that, as they would want to play every day!) Anyway, my kids won’t have to twist my arm too hard to play again. As we are planning on spending the afternoon here at Alley V, I bet there will still be a rematch. Especially today as all games for anyone are ONLY $1. And this time, I am playing to WIN! And if I do just that, I will make sure to post that info on my OTN Facebook page. If my 2nd attempt is equally unsuccessful, well, I will probably just keep that info to myself. 😉
