Laser Tag Day: March 28


The Laser Tag Museum will celebrate the 11th annual International Laser Tag Day on March 28, honoring the 40th anniversary of the creation of the laser tag industry.

It will be 40 years ago since the very first commercial laser tag arena game Photon was released. The game’s developer, George A. Carter III, made it along with technical engineer James Dooley and held a grand opening for their arena on March 28, 1984 in Dallas.
