“Video Game Come to Life”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

Battlefield Colorado is a fantastic experience. There's no question about that. This isn't your typical indoor experience with neon lights and plastic toys. The guns have weight. You are outside running for cover. You can hear the other team yelling orders to flank you. It is an immersive experience that feels straight out of Call of Duty. If that's what you're looking for, then you found it here. There are only a few drawbacks to this kind of game. For one, there is an issue with feedback. In the heat of battle, it is difficult to tell whether or not you've been hit. Teams can be unbalanced depending on who's there, taking you out of the fun if you've lost 3 straight games. But these are minor quibbles. Overall, it is a blast and a highly recommended stop if you're in Downtown Colorado Springs.

“Family battle royal - The Bakers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2014

Our family visited after the 4th of July weekend and we had a fantastic time. The guys were great at organizing games between family members and we all wish it would have lasted longer. Great workout too! We had the 2 team leaders pay for upgraded weapons and they both said it was well worth the minimal cost. The players varied in age from 12 to 64 so don't even think about not participating. We live in California but will make this a "must do" each time we head back to the midwest. You guys ROCK!

“Great for all ages, puts regular laser tag to shame”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2014

My 12yo nephew and I played “open” play. We both had a great time. The missions were easy to understand and fun to play. Each team had about 18 people with a range of ages for both men and women. The equipment (guns) were way more accurate than I expected and I could hit people at a distance. The field of play is a large area that used to be a lumber yard. It has several obstructions to hide behind. Compared to other laser tag, this is far better. I will do it again!

“Fun! Need to fix a couple things”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2014

It was awesome! Really had some fun. Only things that need some help would be that the three round burst gun took a lot more hits then I believe. It seemed to take a lot more hits then it should have to kill someone. Might want to open up the buildings/make a second story. Red Dot sight need batteries. Defiantly had fun though! Gonna check out Black Ops when you guys offer it. Maybe more advanced of a map. But overall was a fun experience!!

Hello Samin,
Thanks for your comments! I'm sorry you had some difficulty with the Commando MK18 rifle - its one of my personal favorites! On occasion scope batteries do wear out during play. That's why during our briefings, we always encourage people to ask for assistance during play if they are having any difficulties since we can usually correct any issues right on the spot! We are in progress on developing some additional areas of play, so keep your eyes peeled this fall for an awesome new addition to the map!
Best,
"Pops"

“Awesome! ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2014

We stopped here on our way to Denver for my 11 year old son and I'm glad we did! The battlefield is on a city block and it's an old lumber yard. They have pallets set up throughout the open area to hide behind. The guns are easy to use. My husband and I used the standard machine gun and my son upgraded to a sniper for $10.00. The instructors were fun and easy to understand. The play was tons of fun. There is light running, and that's only if you choose to. Must stop and do this.
