Admit it: ever since you made a pistol with your hand as a kid, you've wondered what it'd be like to bust a cap in someone without consequence, eg, going to jail, committing years to the military, or not being able to rap about the other coast. Letting you gun down your fellow man ad nauseum: GO FESTIVE!.
Supplementing their stock of photo booths and other weird party gadgets, GF's just fired up a play-just-about-anywhere laser tag package, setting up their cache of inflatable obstacles to crouch/cower behind as you and up to 11 friends blast the hell out of each other with concentrated light pulses without the hassle of listening to some asthmatic Sith Lord bemoan his estranged relationship with his son. Just holo-call him already! They provide the gats (with sensors built in, so no need for vests), kill/accuracy stats at the end of every match/day, and up to 14 obstacles, while game styles include Capture the Flag, Elimination (one shot and you're out), and the cat-evoking Nine Lives (pros: you get nine chances to get shot; cons: obsessive need to make that gravel clump). While they can host a backyard match, games work better in big spaces like parks or football fields (GF recommends "bigger than a b-ball half-court"), and they maintain partnerships with a few local parks; indoor games can take place in their offices (at 2424 Studio's Sky Box) or even your own, in which the biggest obstacles are likely cubicles, snack machines, and the highly vulnerable time it takes to dislodge the stuck Swedish Fish from said snack machine.
The two-hour rental time includes an extra hour where they set up and break down the course, providing ample opportunity to scan the site, because the ultimate key to winning the war is figuring out where
'Pac will exit the Tyson fight your best vantage point would be.
