First Facility: Laser Mania, 905 Hardy Street, Hattiesburg, Mississippi
Equipment: Like many other laser tag systems, Laser Mania’s equipment consists of a vest and a blaster.
The vest weighs 4 lbs 4 oz and has a target area of 216 square inches. The target sensors on the vest can either be orange or blue, depending on which team you are on.
The blaster is very unique in its design. It resembles a revolver with 6 barrels. The blaster weighs 20 oz. The lightweight blaster requires two hands for operation, keeping speed and range of motion within safe limits. The six-barrel nosepiece can be fitted with a closed cell foam guard.
History: Laser Mania’s beginnings date back to Laser Reality. Pat Rothwell started in 1996 owning a site that originally used Laser Reality equipment. In the summer of 1998, Rothwell announced that Laser Mania began brand gear production.
Laser Mania still manufactures and distributes laser tag today.
