FAQs

 

GENERAL

HOW DOES THE LASER TAG WORK?

Our version of laser tag 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 25 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 LASER TAG 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 PLAY LASER TAG?

The games are designed for ages 8 and up, although we can accommodate younger combatants with assistance from their parents. About half of our participants are kids/teens and the rest adults. It's also about 50/50 between men and women.

IS THE LASER TAG 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 LASER TAG 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 LASER TAG EQUIPMENT DO I NEED TO PARTICIPATE?

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

DO I NEED TO RENT LASER TAG 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 LASER TAG, 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 LASER TAG?

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!

HOW DOES THE AXE THROWING WORK?

It's like Darts, but Extreme! Once everyone successfully sticks an axe, we'll teach you some games like 21, Countdown, Around the World, Cornhole, Humans vs Zombies, Killers/Cutthroat and more! You can play 1 v 1, 2 v 2, 3 v 3, etc. We'll also teach you how to play a World Axe Throwing League (WATL) Match and you can go for the high score!

DO WE GET THE AXE LANES TO OURSELVES?

If you book as a group (8 or more), you are guaranteed to one enclosed axe pit with two dedicated lanes.

WHO CAN THROW AXES?

The minimum age is 13; 17 and under must be accompanied by a supervising adult. If a teen group event is booked (8 or more) at least 1 adult for every 10 teens must be present in the axe arenas. Both men and women throw axes equally well.

IS THE AXE THROWING SAFE?

Coliseum X works very hard to provide a safe environment for our guests. Our Sentries coach participants on safety rules and actively monitor the axe throwing to ensure all rules are followed and reinforced. We've never had an injury from a flying axe and our lanes were designed to comply with the World Axe Throwing League (WATL) standards.

IS THERE ANY SPECIAL AXE THROWING TRAINING?

Yes!! We spend whatever time is necessary to ensure you stick an axe. We teach two-handed throwing first (the easiest) and if you want to try one-handed, we'll train that, too.

IS AXE THROWING IT HARD?

That is a hard question to answer, and "it depends." It's all about form, not strength. If you can throw a ball with some skill, you will pick this up quickly. Many people learn to stick in their first 5 throws. Some take longer, but no one has left without sticking an axe. The owners' Moms are both 70+ and both learned how to stick their first time. The local Mom had her 70th birthday party here and beat some of her grandkids!

ARE THE AXES REAL?

You betcha! They aren't sharp enough to shave or cut on contact, but they will stick into a board with a solid throw.

WHAT AXE EQUIPMENT DO I NEED TO PARTICIPATE?

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

DO I NEED TO RENT AXES?

We provide everything you need except the closed-toe shoes. If you forget a pair, we can loan you some Crocs and we have socks for sale (thanks, but we don't want them back!). If you would like to store your personal items, we do have locker rentals available.

CAN I ENJOY ALCOHOL WHEN THROWING AXES?

Yes, but no double fisting! All food and beverage must be consumed outside the axe throwing pits. We do not overserve and all axe throwing is monitored in-person and on video. Be responsible, be an adult and have fun!

I HAVE A PHYSICAL DISABILITY, CAN I THROW AXES?

We hope so! We've had throwers 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!
