Interactive Arena Features
Players want to be immersed in the laser tag game and have a memorable experience. By using Zone’s interactive arena features, you bring the game alive, with the arena itself joining the game.
Zone’s Base options
Zone’s bases are more than just blinking targets for regular team games. They mean profits and exciting options for corporate and group events. Team games can account for almost two-thirds of your laser tag game sales. Zone’s bases can offer a strategic element of defence and extra points for players to score. Zone’s bases are fully programmable with our Helios software, providing several additional options and game formats..
Most of Zone’s laser tag locations place three bases in their arena to allow for exciting multi-team play! This is far more exciting for your customers than the more traditional two-team skirmishes. Excited customers mean more repeat play and more money for you!
Zone’s Video Outpost is the king of our base range. It makes a great focal point for the arena, with high definition graphics, videos and dynamic reactive audio.
Video Outposts also have the ability to play mini-games with your guests. They also work as a reload energizer, have customised videos for game formats, helpful hints and more. The Video Outpost is truly a living arena device.
Your customers will love the Video Outpost. Not just for its impressive array of features, but also because of how intuitive it is to use. Your players can play; 3 cup monty, spin a wheel, or have a shootout with the bases interactive video!
The player can win power-ups, points, or other effects from successfully beating Rodney in his games. These settings are very configurable and available in most games
Spin a wheel – This game will give players a chance to earn a prize by tagging the base
Quick draw – This game will allow players to compete against Rodney the Robot in a game of reflexes. Tag the base before he can tag you!
3 cup monty – This game will allow players to try and guess the cup that the ball is under, by tagging the corresponding sensor of the base.
Outposts are multifunctional devices, enabling a multitude of exciting game formats. They are essential for competitive or strategic style games.
Outposts have brilliant colours matching each team’s colour and clear sound effects and DMX output to control add-on effects. It’s rare to see a Zone site without one.
Zone Garrisons Bases are compact and easy to install. They have loud, clear speakers and great hit fields. They’re perfect for when you need a team base to attack and defend.
These are wireless and do not have a cable run to them in the arena. Just add power, and you are ready to go. Garrisons are best suited for smaller Zone laser tag installations like Phasor Strike and Helios2.
Team Base – This base will flash the colour of a team, who must protect it. Opponents must try and tag this base to destroy it. Members of the same colour cannot tag the base.
Solo Base – This base will flash rainbow and can be tagged by anyone.
Scoreboard (Video Base ONLY)- Displaying a vibrant real-time scoreboard in your game requires no further hardware. Your Interactive Video Outpost will keep your players in the loop the whole game.
Comp Team Base – Similar to a Team Base, this setting is specifically for the competition format and has a lot of specific parameters to customize it.
Comp Solo Base – Similar to a Solo Base, this setting is specifically for the competition format and has a lot of specific parameters to customize it.
Team Energizer – This base will flash the colour of a team, and will energize that team’s players – restoring their health or power.

Arena Targets are small, multi-coloured, super bright LED devices integrated into the laser game operating system. Targets don’t just provide one extra game; they are a multi-function game enhancement that can be applied to nearly all Helios games in many different ways.
Targets are incredibly cost-effective, allowing you to deploy 60 or more for a fraction of the cost of most entertainment centre features.
Integration and customisability allow for almost endless laser game formats. Use them in standard games for points or special powers; hype up limited power or health games by setting them to reload and re-energise; or enhance strategic games using them as defensive shields.
Zone’s technology turns your existing laser tag arena into a new and immersive laser game experience. Zone Targets are easily the most valuable addition to a competitive location.

Zone Targets are: Cost Effective Customizable Immersive Multi-Use Interactive
The Zone Gate is a multi-function arena doorway capable of various functions depending on game settings.
It’s lit with multi-colour super-bright LED strips and incorporates speakers for that immersive interactivity that players crave. Zone Gates integrate our popular target technology, meaning players can tag and control them, which adds something special to the Zone game architecture.
- Capture mode
Players tag the Gate to capture it, converting it to their team’s colour. Teammates can freely pass through, but opposing teams will be tagged.
- Random mode
The gate changes colour randomly, allowing only the appropriate colour to pass through without being tagged.
- Reload Bay
The gate functions as either a random or team-specific reload bay. Players pass through to reload their power or lives.
Zone Gates let the players control the arena
The Pick-up Pad is an illuminated power pick-up platform with a beacon light from above. Pick-up Pads are completely customisable and can be customised per game to add exactly what you want to the experience
Pick-up Pads come with special games, as well as functioning as energizers. Depending on the chosen parameters, it is possible to create various ways to operate the Pick-up Pads, changing the dynamics of how a game might be played, removing player familiarity, and adding an element of randomness to the laser tag experience.
Pick-up Pads activate when a player steps onto the unit. Depending on game settings, that player then gets to choose or purchase (using in-game currency) special powers or gear from a list displayed on their phaser. Those powers are added to a “backpack”, which the player can access and use at any time throughout the game.
Power ups, from Pick Up pads include
● Rapid Fire
● Relay Bouncer
● Mine Shield
● Power Packs
● Sticky Bomb
● Medic Packs
● Gate Pass
● Health Packs

Mines emit a pulse, at random intervals, that deactivates all players nearby, but not before announcing to the world by increasingly frequent beeps and flashes that it’s about to wipe them out!
For more advanced members games, the Mine may be captured by tagging it, and when it explodes, the player who tagged the Mine will receive the credit for all the players tagged by it.
