What is Battle Royale?
Battle Royale is mobile laser combat. In essence, it is similar to Call of Duty, paintball, and laser tag all together… but in real life and no projectiles.. only light. We are a MOBILE company so we do not have a fixed location. We bring the party/event to you. If you do not have somewhere to play, we will help you find a place.
Where is Battle Royale?
Because we are a MOBILE company and do NOT have a fixed location, WE BRING THE EVENT TO YOU- indoors or outdoors.
What does a normal event look like?
Here is what a normal event would look like. We will arrive on site at your location approximately an hour early and greet you. We will find out where we are setting up and go ahead and set up our equipment.
Then, at the start of the event, we will explain the rules and how to use the guns. Once we have done that, game time begins! We will play about 4-6 different scenarios that last between 8-15 minutes each. These scenarios are very similar to the video games: capture the flag, king of the hill, juggernaut, search and destroy, and team elimination.
What types of guns do you have?
We have three different types of guns: Stinger (similar to M16), Skinny Guns (similar to Mac10), and our rental plastic guns. If you are interested in our rental guns, click here: http://www.mybattleroyale.com/pricing/rentals/
How do the rental guns work? Do I rent them? Do I run the event?
The rental guns are consumer laser tag guns that are NOT nearly as cool as our PRO SERIES guns but still work well and are loads of fun. Our rental guns, the ENTRY LEVEL guns are made of plastic, can shoot a city block, work indoor and outdoor, and are easy to use. We usually do NOT run the event when you rent the ENTRY LEVEL guns. Instead, you can rent them for 24 hours and run your own event. If you are interested in us running an event with the ENTRY LEVEL guns, please contact us. These guns are perfect for little kids and adults. However, adults will probably prefer the PRO SERIES guns. Some choose our ENTRY LEVEL guns over the PRO SERIES guns because we have 40 ENTRY LEVEL guns and only 20 PRO SERIES guns. http://www.mybattleroyale.com/pricing/rentals/
How far ahead should I book my event?
We suggest between 30-45 days in advance. Weekends book more quickly so don’t delay. Click HERE to book.
Should I tip the Battle Royale Staff Member?
That is completely up to you. Staff members always appreciate gratuity, but by no means is it required. An average tip is about 7% of the cost of the event.
Is this laser tag similar to what I have played at other arenas?
Absolutely not. This is like laser tag on steroids! This laser tag looks and feels realistic. Battle Royale’s equipment does not have vests that you wear. Instead, you will wear head sensors that opponents must aim for in order to shoot you (we also can use velcro sashes that go over the shoulder). Furthermore, you can play Battle Royale anywhere you want, indoors or outdoors. Another option is to create teams, leagues, and tournaments in a way that was not possible with typical laser tag. Click HERE to set up a tournament, team, or league that you would like to start.
Will Battle Royale work for my daughter’s birthday party or a bachelorette party?
Yes. Ladies enjoy Battle Royale just as much as guys. Plus, it doesn’t hurt when you get shot.
How much does it cost?
Prices vary depending on time and location. Click here for more information.
If there is no vest, what do I shoot?
Each player will have 3 sensors fastened to their headband or sash that you must hit in order to take your opponent out of the game. You will look through the red dot scope and aim at your opponents’ sensors.
What if its not dark? Can I still play Battle Royale?
Yes. Battle Royale works well in the sunlight and in lighted facilities. However, you can play at night or in dark buildings as well.
Is this paintball?
No. No sting in this game. You aren’t actually shooting anything out of your gun except light. The light however, is not harmful to your eyes like laser pens. This gun shoots the same type of light that is used on a remote control: infrared.
Where can I play Battle Royale?
Anywhere- indoors or outdoors. Battle Royale does not have a permanent location. Therefore, different properties and facilities can be used to play Battle Royale.
Is Battle Royale insured?
Yes. We can provide proof of insurance upon request. Click here to contact us.
Who can play Battle Royale?
4+ years and above. Battle Royale even works well among families so that moms, dads, grandparents, and children/teens can play together.
What will we do the entire time? Just shoot each other?
Well, yes… and no. Battle Royale has a circuit of different games and scenarios that groups will play during their game time. For example, we will do elimination, king of the hill, search and destroy, team death match, Secret Service Detail, take out the General, predator, capture the flag, traitor, last man standing and others. Each scenario should take between 5-12 minutes. If there are certain types of games you want to play, contact us beforehand and request them specifically.
What if I have less than 12 people for my event?
That’s quite alright. We can do an event with as few as 8 people. However, the price does not change for less than 12 people.
What if I have more than 12 people for my event?
At this time, Battle Royale can provide up to 20 guns for gameplay.
What if I don’t have a place to play Battle Royale?
No worries… we will help you find a location near you that can be played… either a park district, public park, warehouse, field, or empty building. If you do not have a location and we need to rent a facility to use, those rental fees will be added to the event cost.
What if I have an open space (for example: parking lots, open fields, gymnasium, etc.) with nothing to hide behind?
We can set up portable barriers for a small fee.
What if I must change the time or location of my event?
If you know you need to change the date of your event, please do so more than 10 days before your event. If you change your date 1-9 days before your event, a $100 service fee will be added to your balance. You will not lose your deposit. We will simply reschedule for a time that works.
What if I must cancel my reservation for Battle Royale?
The 50% deposit is non-refundable. We can reschedule for another date. Any cancellation less than 14 days before the event will forfeit their deposit.
How do I book Battle Royale for my event?
Click here and send a message to us telling us who you are, the date and time of your event, how long you want to play, how many people, and for how long.
What if it rains during my outdoor event and it must be cancelled?
No worries, we will reschedule with you to find another time.
Can Battle Royale be played in the rain?
Yes, but only light rain. In the case of moderate or heavy rain, we will reschedule with you.
How accurate are the guns in Battle Royale?
The guns are extremely accurate and built well. They are very durable and can fire over 1400 feet in the daylight.
How do I get hit and how do I know if I was hit?
Instead of wearing a large vest, you will wear a velcro headband or sash and have 3 red sensors attached to it. When you aim at someone, you must aim through the red dot scope and aim for their sensors. When you are hit, your sensors will light up momentarily and your gun will make a wounded sound. Once you are shot a certain number of times (TBD), your gun will stop working and your sensors will stay lit until you respawn.
What is the minimum age that can play?
We recommend that kids be at least 4 years old. Click here for more information. Battle Royale recommends Windy City Laser Tag for anyone under the age of 12. Check out their website here: www.WindyCityLaserTag.com. Windy City Laser Tag is a subsidiary of Battle Royale. Same staff, same equipment, different name.
Do you have something available for children under the age of 10?
Yes, we sure do. Check out www.WindyCityLaserTag.com.
How do I know if my space is large enough to play in?
This question is difficult to answer. Ask yourself, is my space large enough for 12 people to move around freely and have fun without running into one another? It does not have to be open space, but it cannot be so small that they are running into one another all the time. Also, are there breakable items? If so, that space might not be best. The younger the crowd, the smaller the space necessary. For example, for kids, a backyard might work well.
How can I pay for Battle Royale?
