Welcome to EWU Laser Tag! Laser Tag is a fast paced game where players try to "Tag" their opponent to score points while avoiding getting tagged, which costs them points. Players can shoot from protected areas, from behind the many bunkers/barricades or out in the open commando style! Games can be individual or team based and last approximately 15-20 minutes. Seeing the "red spot" light up on your target is exciting and the added dramatic effect of the smoke from our fog machines makes things that much better. Each game has 20 available laser/vest combos so there really is plenty of room.
This is the perfect setting for student groups and organizations, campus departments, Greek chapters and residence hall teams to come over and have some fun. With games being played primarily in the PUB MPR and Jim Thorpe Fieldhouse, it's easily accessible to the EWU community.
Persons with special needs may make arrangements for accommodations by contacting the Intramural Sports Office at 509.359.4836 at least three (3) days prior to the event.
FREE for all currently enrolled EWU students/faculty/staff. Friends and immediate family members may also participate with prior approval from the Director of Campus recreation.

Many people immediately leap to the conclusion that "Laser" must be the highly potent beam of light that can cut through most items with ease. There are 4 levels of Laser Classifications with "4" being the highest energy source and "1" the least. The equipment used in these activities are Class 1 beams which are 1/4 second bursts of light, 3 milliamps in strength, which are not dangerous to participants in any way. Without the added visual effect of fog machines, you wouldn't even see the light unless you were directly across from the light source, in this case the person aiming their laser at you.
Game Set Up
While there are many different games to play, the most common format will be individual or capture the flag. All players are required to attend a pre-game orientation session where all rules and policies will be explained in detail. The game field setup will be a combination of inflatable bunkers and movable PVC barricades, mixed with smoke machines and music to enhance your Laser Tag experience. Players may move from bunker to bunker to gain an advantage from an opponent. Players must stay on their feet at all times and may not lay on the ground at any moment to shoot. IM champions shirts will be awarded at the end of each evening of play to the players male/female scoring the highest amount of points or most game wins of each night, as determined by the game staff.
