Vultrek

Founder: Graham and Robyn Smithvultrekowners

Date Established: July 5, 1986

Date Closed: 2002

Number of Locations: 5 

Key Personnel:
Graham Smith - Co-Founder
Robyn Smith - Co-Founder

First Facility: 7 Barlow Street, 5015 Port Adelaide, South Australia

Equipment: The Vultrek equipment featured a helmet and battery pack that closely resembled the equipment of Photon.

History: Vultrek was created by Graham and Robyn Smith and was the first laser tag system to appear in Australia.Graham and Robin had applied for an Australian patent for their laser tag system and the patent was approved on March 5, 1986.  After the patent approval, the Smith's incorporated the Vultrek company in Adelaide and started to test the newly created laser tag suits on June 24, 1986.

Vultrek 5 was later franchised throughout Australia. Vultrek 5 was, in many ways, the missing link between Photon and the three major laser tag products that appeared later in Australia. Those three companies were LaserForce, Quasar (Q-Zar) and Phasor Strike.

The original Vultrek facility is still in use today and is still run by the Smiths, although it is home to the Vultrek 5 paintball center.                 

Vultrek is on par with Photon for being one of the most important founding fathers of the laser tag world. While Photon gave birth to the laser tag technology, Vultrek gave rise to the laser tag companies that developed the industry. If it hadn’t been for Vultrek, the laser tag industry would look much different, if it would have even existed at all.
