About/FAQ

Battle City Tactical Laser Combat opened in Oshawa in 2019. After a short run our physical venue was closed and our team was unable to reopen due to Covid-19. In the spring of 2020 we redesigned our services and launched Battle City Mobile Laser Tag.

Our team will attend your event and set-up an arena using the surrounding area and/or inflatable bunkers.
We also have several partnered locations for your use if you require one (additional fees may apply).

Perfect for Birthday Parties, Family Events and Team Building Activities.

Mobile Laser Tag Frequently Asked Questions

General Questions…

No 🙁
Battle City cannot offer public walk-in games at this time, as we currently do not have a venue open for public access. We are accepting party and event reservations at our partnered venue locations and mobile services.

As of July 12, 2021 our Outdoor Arena opens in Durham Region for Private Parties and Events with your Family and Friends. Battle City will continue to offer mobile services where we will bring our equipment to your events. 

This location can host up to 20 guests (12 players in a game at a time) and is located in North Whitby. There are no additional fees to use this location. Our service fees are the same as our Mobile Laser Tag prices.
There is parking available for up to 3 vehicles.

As this is an Outdoor Arena there is no access to bathrooms or shelters. A litter free picnic area is included in this reservation for 30-minutes before or after your reservation. 

Mosquito and Bug Warning!

We operate out of Durham Region, but serve most of Southern Ontario. This includes Durham Region, Kawartha Lakes, Peterborough, Cobourg, Toronto, the GTA and the surrounding areas.

Our system is best played in an outdoor space suitable for social distancing. 

We recommend an open location the size of a youth soccer field – 100 feet x 150 feet (0.34 acres) or larger.

Our team has an outdoor venue (FREE) and several different rental locations for you to choose from. There may be an additional fee to use some locations, but we have negotiated rental fees as low as $60.00.

Venue Rental page. 

Normally no. Most Cities and Towns have Municipal Code regulations that restrict us from operating our services in public parks. 

Event planners may be able to book part of a public park. You will need to contact your City or Town Hall for further information. Event planners are responsible for all fees and permits.

Our team will attend events from 10:00am until 10:00pm. Dusk is our favorite time to play.

Currently due to Covid-19 restrictions Battle City is only offering outdoor services. To answer the question most people have said outdoor experiences are better.

Due to our state-of-the-art equipment and our games being objective based we suggest players be 10 years of age and older. Our system was designed with teens and adults in mind. We have had players as young as 8 years old play our system, but we do not recommend it for anyone younger than 8 years old. 

Accuracy is key with our taggers (gun)! Players will use a scope to aim at their opponents. Players will need to reload their tagger when they run out of “bullets” and get to a first aid box to respond when another player takes them out.

As many as you want! We currently run games with up to 12 players, but we can alternate players. 

Example: With our 60-minute games package we can host 48 players (with 4 x 15 minute games).
