I'm not sure it really exists anymore... The place on George st died years ago, so did the place in Manly.

I'd be keen to know if it does still exist myself. I think there may be one still out in Campbelltown called Zone 3... but don't know for sure.
What you get is one full hour of rip roarin' rap music. Not by some dubious ruffians without the chops, but by a professionally trained voice man. It's just me out there.

Zone 3 - Fivedock. Loads of fun, great large, open venue with lots of room to move and hide its reasonably priced too and they have group discounts.

Yes there is one in Campbelltown.

Also out in Campbelltown there is some sort of Laser Skirmish. Its pretty much paintball for pussies as you dont get shot by paintballs you just get hit with the laser. Looks interesting but i think i'll stick to paintball.

I'll second that. Been there a couple times and enjoyed it too. If you guys are heading down you should get in touch, its not far away from where I live and me and my bro would most likely come

Perhaps we could organise an unofficial Syd forum laser tag day out at fivedock or something?

I know as i mentioned before they give you discounts if you book in groups and in advance. No deposit is required. Usually they want you to pay a deposit but if you tell them you wont be able to get out there till the day they're cool with it, as long as you can confirm rough numbers close to the day.

Just a thought, i've always had great fun playing laser tag.

It's great for those with limited funds and those girls (or guys) who are too scared to play paintball.

Just had a look on the fivedock laser tag website.

12 - 19 players
1 game $11.50 per person
2 games $19.90 per person
3 games $25.00 per person
Games are 15 minute duration

20+ players
1 game $9.90 per person
2 games $17.00 per person
3 games $21.50 per person
Games are 15 minute duration


Prices are pretty reasonable.

Most people think that 15min games are pretty short, however if you really get into the game, 15mins can be quite a long time when you're running around like crazy.

Generally from the times ive been in the past, you usually play 2 games, have a 15min break to get a drink / food etc then go in for your last game.

Of course there's no reason why you can't book 6 games if you really wanted.

midnight till dawn are soo good!
you play as the title says from midnight till dawn, its $40.
you play heaps of different kinds of games as well, like vampire, where one person is the vampire and one is a slayer, the slayer has to figure out who the vampire is and kill them, whilst the vampire whenever they shoot somone that person will also become a vampire.
theres lots of better games too.
whenever i go with a group of friends i bring my own cd, they are usually more then happy to play it for ya.

The Five Dock one is great fun.. Except I ended up playing against a bunch of 12 year olds who totally owned us

I think 4/5 players per team is good.. Too many and you start shooting at your own team or run out of hiding spots!
...what does that even mean?!

I would have gone with some Mescalinum United, Suburban Hell and the very early Luke Slater on Peacefrog - definitely the more industrial tech sounds from the early 90s.

Or you could just play the UR and +8 catalog circa 91-93, just drop out the housier style releases.

Hmm.. now I have an idea.

hhhh () wtf is a sniper rifle???? Now make sure you are precise & accurate in your description here you are typing to someone who is more in the know than any average punter...

And re the rivalry - I say we just get shitfaced sometime in a bar - less physical movement in that case - more drinking involved

Re the mixing - not too many people in sydney like SCHRANZ....

Zone 3 Five Dock is still going strong after 7 years in the business, with our newly themed arena anyone that hasn’t been down in the past year should really come check it out. www.zone3sydney.com.au

We are also doing a Midnight to Dawn on the Oct long weekend info can be found on our website and a facebook event has been created for it http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=123248421106782

We have also expanded out to Caringbah with another great location.

I went to the Five Dock one a couple of years ago. I'm not as good as I thought I was
Good venue though.

Also there is http://www.lasersiege.com.au/ at Arncliffe (Inner South), but I haven actually played there yet. Looking through the window it looks like they have a old school bus in there.

Ive worked here pretty much since we have opened, and I have never heard any stories like this happening to anyone, I also talked to the owner and he has never heard any stories to any damage to anyone car during the 7 years we have been here.
But if this did happen you should have come in and let us know as we have lots of cameras around the place.

Also go to our facebook page http://www.facebook.com/#!/pages/Zon...65831096761779 tell us how much you LOVE laser tag, and we will pick 5 people to get 5 x 3 laser tag game passes at the end of the month.

You can play laser skirmish at strike bowling bar's now...well you can at the one in chatswood.
Best night to go is mondays. If you buy a drink over 6 or 7$ you get a free game of bowling or laser skirmish.

Otherwise other nights of the week its quite costly.

Zone 3 Five Dock is no longer open. This is because we are currently relocating to a much better location in Westfields Hornsby.

The new store is called District 3, and is completely themed in a post apocalyptic style throughout the whole store. We will be featuring more then just Laser Tag with the addition of Bungee Run, and Dodgem Cars. Our open date is early August, keep up to date with our progress find us on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/District3Hornsby

Let the games begin!!!

No there isn't, but there is a pub across the road, and plenty of restaurants around the store where you can get a drink.

Strike at the Entertainment Quarter has laser skirmish for $12 and you can drink in-between games. The venue attracts an interesting crowd though!
