FAQ

These are some of the questions we are often asked. Please call us on 0141 641 0222 or e mail [email protected] if there is anything else you would like to know.

What is Lazer Planet?

Scotland’s premier indoor laser tag arena, rated 4 Star Activity Centre by Visitscotland. Laser tag is a hi-tech action game where each player has a phazer or tagger which emits a harmless laser beam for aiming and an IR beam (like your TV remote) which transmits information about which taggers have hit which packs, and where. The point of the game is to try and score as many points as possible by tagging players in the opposing team, whilst not being tagged yourself. When players are tagged they are ‘deactivated’ for a few seconds. The heavily space themed arena, complete with ultra violet lights, sound system and smoke creates an atmospheric playing experience.

What equipment do I need?

Please wear trainers or boots, no sandals or heels! Unlike paintball you don’t need to wear masks, gloves or ammo belts. Lazer Planet is indoors but the arena is unheated so please dress appropriately.

Is it safe?

Lazer Planet has been built to provide a safe and fun experience. The equipment uses Infra-Red technology, which is a safe invisible light, and low power lazers. There are no projectiles like paintball to cause bruises. Our Game Referees monitor each mission to ensure all rules of engagement are followed.

What are your rules?

  • No running allowed – Tactical walking please!
  • No blind firing
  • Dead Men Don’t Talk
  • No spawn camping
  • Do not climb on the scenery
  • Players must stay at least 3-5’ away from opponents at all time – no physical contact allowed!
  • Watch out for ramps – no running!

What are the age requirements for the laser tag arena?

Participants aged 6 to 13 years must be accompanied by an adult (one adult can take responsibility for multiple kids).

What is the difference between Combat City and Laser Tag in Glasgow?

Combat City is a military simulation, using a variety of realistic weapons to complete military objectives.

In laser tag all the weapons are the same, and players are immortal, encouraging a different style of combat.

A good arena like Lazer Planet in Clydebank has a Sci-Fi space theme, with a darklight maze, smoke and atmospheric music. Great fun, and a real blast to play, but completely different from the military realism of Combat City.

It’s the difference between ‘Star Wars and ‘Call of Duty’!

What is the difference between Combat City and Paintball in Glasgow?

It’s all about the benefits of sophisticated technology; the adrenalin rush is the same! Lazer Planet taggers fire faster, and are more accurate. Even better by firing Infra-red light there are no projectiles to cause welts on your body, or cost you money every time you fire. There is no cheating at Lazer Planet, however many referees a paintball field has it’s still easy to wipe off a hit.
There is also no need to wear masks that mist up.

Do you mix age groups?

There is no physical contact so young kids can play well alongside adults, as they understand the missions and gun capabilities from playing video games. However at weekends Saturday and Sunday afternoons are primarily Birthday Parties, and where possible we will try to put similar ages together. The sessions are all Open Play, unless you make an exclusive booking for 24 players at peak time, or 12 players off-peak.

What are the opening times?

The Clydebank arena is available 7 days a week from 12pm to 10pm Mon- Fri and 10am -10pm Sat-Sun. The Booking Office is open 7 days a week from 10am to 7pm, and can be reached on 0141 641 0222.

What food do you offer?

The pizzeria in Scotkart serves a selection of freshly baked pizza, plus Italian coffee, soft drinks, cakes and snacks. Party food and buffets can be pre-booked and served in one of the 3 Party Rooms.

Can I bring outside food or beverages?

The only outside food we allow are Birthday Cakes if you have booked a Pizza Party. Otherwise we ask that you purchase food and drinks from the café or vending machines provided.

What about alcohol?

No alcohol is allowed on site, and anyone suspected of having consumed alcohol or drugs will not be permitted to play. The only exception is exclusive group or corporate bookings where beer and wine can be brought for after an event, we are happy to store it in the fridge for you.

Any ‘Top Tips’ for playing laser tag?

  • Keep moving around the arena to confuse your opponents about your location.
  • Communicate with your team mates all the time; keep each other informed about the location of your opponents.

  • Don’t develop tunnel vision and become fixated on one opponent or you will be eliminated out of nowhere.
  • Practice ‘Snap Shooting’ where you pop out of your position, fire, and take cover again quickly.
  • Play the angles, if you can move up the flank you can get side on shots to your opponents.
  • Decide on your team tactics, and work in small teams.

Can I cancel my booking and get a refund?
