FAQs

GENERAL

WHAT IS IT? HOW DOES IT WORK?

Coliseum X, at it's core, is laser tag. Our version is more advanced, complex and super-charged than traditional venues. We are the largest laser tag in Ohio, if not the entire Midwest, featuring three arenas. Combatants can choose from 7 different realistic replica weapons and can play 50 different missions. Friendly-fire counts and combatants have a limited amount of life. We combine the best elements of laser tag, paintball, video games and action movies.

DO WE GET THE ARENA TO OURSELVES?

Most combatants participate in OPEN PLAY, and play with the general public. You may book an event and pay for a private Sentry to run missions just for your group during open hours or you may also rent the entire facility during off hours. For special events, we will close during open hours to host a private party.

WHO CAN PARTICIPATE?

The games are designed for ages 8 and up, although we can accommodate younger combatants with assistance from their parents. Special group rates are available for guests 5 to 7 years old (please call us). About half of our participants are kids and the rest adults. It's also about 50/50 between men and women.

IS IT SAFE?

Coliseum X works very hard to provide a safe environment for our guests. We do not have projectiles and the lasers use an infrared beam like a TV remote control. Our Sentries monitor each mission from inside the arenas to ensure all rules are followed and reinforced.

IS THERE ANY SPECIAL TRAINING?

Training is only required before your very first mission. You will not have to sit through training every time you play. It lasts 3-5 minutes, depending on questions.

WHAT EQUIPMENT DO I NEED TO PARTICIPATE?

Comfortable clothes and a pair of closed-toe shoes (athletic shoes recommended)

DO I NEED TO PAY TO RENT EQUIPMENT?

Everything you need for a successful mission is included - no extra costs. If you would like to store your personal items, we do have locker rentals available.

WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN COLISEUM X AND PAINTBALL OR AIRSOFT?

First and foremost, no projectiles, no welts, no pain. The laser technology also enables us to accurately replicate a specific weapon's characteristics. Our shotguns spray like real ones, the MP4 has greater range, the P90 more ammo. The technology also prevents "KIA" combatants from continuing to fire their weapons and cheating. We are indoor and climate-controlled. You don't have to worry about rain-outs, cold weather, darkness. We're open year round, days and nights.

I HAVE A PHYSICAL DISABILITY, CAN I PLAY?

We hope so! All of our arenas are on one floor - no stairs, no ramps. We have multiple weapons, including pistols. Our missions require team work and not everyone has to quickly move around. Some team members may take on roles that require them to be stationary. We've had participants in wheelchairs, on crutches, in casts, and pregnant. Please call us to discuss or to arrange a free tour - we'll figure it out together!

WILL I BE RECORDED AT COLISEUM X?

Our reception area and arenas are all under 24 hour surveillance. You may be filmed or photographed, and your photos may be publicly displayed. Should your image be used publicly and you would like it removed, please email us at info@coliseumx.com

HOW DO I BOOK? DO I NEED A RESERVATION?

Reservations are not required. You will be able to participate in Open Play at any time. If you have a group and want private play, please explore our group options.

CAN I COME BY MYSELF, OR DO I NEED TO COME WITH A GROUP?

Combatants may come to Coliseum X individually or with a group. If you come with a group, our Sentries do an excellent job of keeping your group together.

WHAT TYPES OF EVENTS DOES COLISEUM X HOST?

We host any type of group gathering, celebration or event. We’ve been a popular choice for birthday parties, corporate team building events, bachelor and bachelorette parties, youth and student group events, and college socials.

DO I NEED AN EXACT NUMBER TO MAKE A RESERVATION?

No - as long as you know you'll have 8, we receommend booking the event so you don't lose your preferred time & date. We can easily add to the number in the party, even on the day of the event.

ARE THERE VOLUME DISCOUNTS?

We do have discounts based on the length of the party and the number of participants

CAN WE BRING OUR OWN BEVERAGES OR FOOD INTO THE FACILITY?

We do not permit outside food or drinks in our facilities. The only exception is a birthday cake/treat. We have a wide variety of food and beverage selections available at the Café. Catering options are also available through one of our preferred caterers for special events.

WHEN CAN I HAVE MY EVENT?

Coliseum X will host events any day of the week. Private events can also be hosted before we open to the general public. You may also select a time during our open hours, but keep in mind your group will participate in Open Play and will share the combat arenas with the others.

The minimum number of people required for a group package is 8.

DO I NEED A MEMBERSHIP FOR A GROUP EVENT?

No, memberships are not required for group events.
