Alpena Laser Team Challenge: ‘Laser Tag on Steroids’

You Can't Outrun the Speed of Light

Laser Team Challenge in Alpena is offering extreme laser tag, all while teaching leadership and teamwork.

Owner Jim Makowske says, “this is like laser tag on steroids – we have a lot of people come here with certain expectations and if you come here – matter of fact if you come here most of the time people don’t want to go to any other laser tag place.”

This 45,000 square foot, three story building is giving people a taste of what happens when they ditch their video games. People travel all over the country to experience some of the action because there is nothing quite like it.

“I’ve played at some of those little zap zone areas – there is no comparison. I love this place. I’ve been coming here for the last 3.5 years – there’s nothing like it,” says Christian Vinz who has been coming to Laser Team Challenge for the last 3.5 years.

Laser Team Challenge offers 2 to 6 hours of play for all ages.

“The youngest that we allow to play is seven,”  Makowske says. “There’s really no limit on the top end – we have a lot of adults who play, a lot of teenagers who play and the amazing thing is it works for them to play at the same time. There is no particular advantage of being tall or fast because you can’t outrun the speed of light.”

Vinz, a Laser Team Challenge regular, says, “I love the exercise of it! It’s a good way to hang out with friends. I mean you see online video gaming that’s a huge thing. I’d pick this over any kind of video games. It’s awesome.”
