Hidden behind the Desira Fiat car showroom in Bury St Edmunds is Planet Laser, an awesome laser tag arena with bowling, arcade and café all on site. It’s a great place to spend a few hours in energetic battle with your friends, and perfect for children’s parties!

Planet Laser is the futuristic laser tag game played in a themed multi-level arena filled with alien music, moody lighting, smoke and hidden dangers. Hunt your enemies with state of the art Helios laser guns, whilst trying to not to become a target yourself. It’s tough. It’s challenging. You will get sweaty. But it’s worth it - success means you will collect points and climb the ranks of the online membership system, plus of course you will get total respect and kudos from your friends.

Unlike paintball, with laser tag you don’t get hurt or bruised. It’s all indoors so the weather is not a problem. You don’t have to wear uncomfortable face masks or old clothes that get covered in paint – just trainers or similar flat shoes and your normal clothes (hint: dark clothes are an advantage if you want to stay hidden from the enemy!).

Planet Laser is 100% fun and adrenaline, with 0% pain and hassle. Plus it's all indoors so you need not be be put off by even the worst of Bury St Edmunds' weather. 

Anyone from 1.1 metres tall can play at Planet Laser. Don’t worry if you haven’t played before – a 5-minute briefing before your first game will have you ready for action. Games are 15 minutes long with a breather between them to reload and recover.

From team to solo games, there is a game format suitable for you. Most players come in groups of at least 4 people, but the staff can always sort out a suitable arrangement with other players who are there at the same time. If your group is big enough (maximum 30 people) you might like to hire the whole arena; great deals are available especially on weekdays - please call for details.
