Laser Quest Technology
Over the years LQX equipment has built up an excellent reputation with both Laser Quest operators and laser tag enthusiasts alike.
LQX is the UK’s most popular laser tag system renowned for being robust, reliable, and boasting many customisable game formats and features.
The Best Tagging Technology
Laser Quest Pro provides the highest quality laser tag gameplay. It starts with our unique-in-the-industry computer aided alignment process, ensuring that every single laser is evenly matched and accurate. We then angle the 16 hit sensors to prevent tagging dead zones.
More Inclusive Vestless Add-Ons
No player left behind. We’ve developed a solution for small children, disabled enthusiasts. Cant wear a vest? Our vestless phasers are fully compatible with the Laser Quest Pro system. Having a few at your facility will ensure families and players of all types will be able to play in your arena.
Every Laser Quest Pro system includes over 30 game formats and access to new game formats as we create them every year! Some games are intended for smaller groups to make the arena fun even if only 5 people want to play on a weekday afternoon, some are fun for big groups of new players and some are tailored for advanced players on special members nights.
The CyberBlast phaser system is typically used for portable applications however can also be used as a low-cost fixed attraction to reach a younger target audience. If you would like to use a CyberBlast phaser in a fixed attraction several options are available to improve the game experience.
The 2-watt multi voice speaker allows multiple sound affects to be played at once, so you don’t miss out on critical updates throughout the game. A pico-vibrator is mounted in the grip of the phaser, providing tactile feedback when the trigger is pulled and when you are tagged. The RGB LCD shows your rank, score, shots remaining and other information throughout the game. Angled at 45 degrees, the screen can be read quickly so you can get back in the action. Extra thick rubber surrounds the LCD preventing damage to the most sensitive part of the phaser. The phasers can be housed in a heavy duty carry case or a phaser rack.

We would recommend getting in touch with us to discuss your requirements and we will make a recommendation.
We recommend 125-160 square feet per player.
A typical starter system size is 20 vests which would require at least 2,500 square feet. When laser tag accompanies other attractions, it can range from 2,500 square feet to 4,000 square feet.
Laser Quest only attractions tend to be a little larger at 4,000 to 6,500 square feet with 24-32 vests.
Remember the Laser Quest rental model allows you to reduce and increase your equipment throughout the year.
We have a simple, 3-step approach to our setup process to keep things easy:

When I wanted to open a Laser Tag centre, I knew that Laser Quest was the right choice. Laser Quest has a long history and is nostalgic for me. The support received from Alistair, Nathan and the team was excellent – from fit out to operations, everything was covered. I look forward to opening further centres with them!
After 30 years operating a Laser Quest franchise it’s been fantastic to see the Laser Quest brand grow to be synonymous with laser tag.
