HAUNTED HOUSES THAT TOUCH YOU – ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

Asylum Laser Tag at Indoor Extreme Sports in Long Island City, NY is a haunted house laser tag field with a moving maze. They use real semi-automatic paintball guns that are modified for laser tag, so they actually make noise when you fire. The field is an asylum themed haunted house that moves to create an ever changing environment. Friday nights from 9pm – Midnight they amp things up by adding zombies to the mix. Their weekly ZombieFest surrounds you with hoards of super zombies that reanimate 30 seconds after being shot. In between rounds you can watch zombie movies in the Asylum Lounge.

I’ve never had any desire to play Laser Tag, but I might have to check this out. A haunted house where I can shoot zombies? Count me in.

Get ready New York! The shockingly early email just went out. They teased us for months about the 2011 Off-Season Event, but for 2013 the shock is that the event will start in 3 days. Hope you didn’t have plans this weekend. A small amount of tickets will be released sometime soon and they will be available to anyone

It’s seriously cold in NYC. Will there be nudity in this year’s Off-Season Event? The Frostbite would be terrifying. Tension is running high as we wait for the limited number of tickets to be released. Will you be one of the lucky few?
