A lot of parents worry video games are bad for their children because the television keeps the kids inside and away from much needed exercise. This week's Lone Star Adventure takes the video games outside and lets participants work up a real sweat. FOX 4's Richard Ray takes us to The Colony and Laser Tag-DFW.
Imagine video games taken out of the virtual world and played in the woods. Laser Tag-DFW has an agreement with The Colony that gives them 22 acres in a city park to book outings and run their games.
This kind of laser tag is wildly popular in Australia, where citizens are prohibited from using paintball guns. The laser guns don't actually shoot lasers but instead use an infrared light like a television remote control. Unlike paintball, the hits don't hurt.
Some folks are serious players, showing up to play in full camouflage but participants are most often part of corporate team building, birthday parties, family groups. Laser Tag-DFW runs games year around, though business slows down in the heat of the summer.
Enthusiasts say laser tag is all about team work and exercise. They get to run around and play the games they love while still getting the exercise Mom and Dad want them to have.
