i live next door and I come all the time! No hassle with paperwork easy to learn and so fun to play with friends or without! Kind of expensive but not too shocking. Really fun definitely worth a try!

“Fun but EXPENSIVE!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2012

I have 2 boys who would love nothing more than to spend more time hanging out here. It is a lot of fun but way to expensive! Take lots of money! You need to buy a membership card on your first visit and then also load it up with time.

“OK - but not wonderful”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2011

I went here with another family - so ten of us in total. Cost $180.
The girls who explained the thing did so VERY poorly - she rocketed through the explanation - obviously had done it 200 times previously and just rhymed it off verbatim.
For $22 you get 30 minutes game time. That was enoiugh for 3,4 or 5 missions, depepnding how long you could stay alive per mission. You play with whoever else is in the facility at the time.
My gun didn't work properly (light was broken on the little screen) so that wasn't good.
My two boys aged 10 and 13 enjoyed it and would go back. My 16 and 19 year old girls thought it was OK. All adults thought it was disappoiting.

“Unrealistic Realistic Fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2011 via mobile

Hard knocks is a super fun, very different experience. Takes laser tag to a new level. You will feel like you are in a movie. Something different and exciting for all ages. Also a great work out. if you haven't been, it is a laser sports center where you use life like models of real guns and take part in different missions. Play space includes an " office building " a " warehouse " and many computers with computer games such as W.O.W. As well as many gaming systems and comfy couches. Also available are snacks and refreshments to purchase.
