A Laser Tag Arena Right At Home With Laser X Revolution! #ad

As the holidays are approaching, I find myself scrambling to get all the gifts on my sons' and nephews' holiday list. Since they range from all ages, it can be tricky making sure that I find gifts that meet their unique likes and interests. My nephew loves laser tag ever since I had a laser tag party for my older son for one of his birthdays. I knew that Laser X Revolution would be the perfect gift for him this Christmas. Laser X Revolution can be found at Target and getlaserx.com.  It is like having a laser tag arena in your own home! Blast opponents up to 300' away – inside or out, in darkness or bright sunlight.  You can even choose from more than 20 team colors to light up your blaster! Blaster beams have the ability to go through windows and strategically bounce off walls and mirrors to hit opponents, while quick-slide reload keeps the action going. Advanced sensors allow an interactive voice "coach" to offer tips and tricks throughout the game. … [Read more...]
