When we walked into Wildwood Highlands it was obvious
that this is a very popular local amusement attraction with a lot more to offer
besides the laser tag that we had gone there to experience. With arcade, bumper
cars, kids zone and more there is plenty of family fun here and a lot of
different activities coming together. Ironically, there were also a lot of
different laser tag messages coming together too! The system they were running
was Zone Rift, but I really got a kick out of playing it in a Tron arena.
I really love the mixed imagery here. :) They had
previously used the Lasertron system at this site so it made sense that they
had kept the arena design.
However, Logan and I both recognized something that
seemed out of place. How did a site that, according to Logan, never ran Lazer
Runner end up with this Stargate?
It was interesting to find a little touch of three
unrelated systems coming together at this site.
We entered a small game with a couple of younger players
assisted by game master Jacob. Jacob was surprised by the way Logan and I
played. When the game was over he was overly impressed and asked us how we got
to be so good. Always a nice compliment. Logan answered "playing in tournaments"
while I always say it's the result of "spending WAY too much time playing
tag" (as if there's any such thing). When Jacob went back into the vortex
to help retrieve a bracelet I had dropped Logan and I had to smile at the fact that
he was so impressed with what we both considered to be marginal scores by our own
standards at the end of a long day. What would he think if we were playing at our
best? Lol...I guess it just goes to show that scores and perception of performance
are all completely relative. But it was a fun time and I'm really glad I got to
experience this site. And I got to take home some tag swag as well, so it was a
very worthwhile stop.
