We enjoyed ourselves....Liked that there weren't bulky vests....the guns were cool....different....long distances you couldn't see the lasers to know if you were shooting your opponents....

An absolutely great experience. The outdoor course is a bit more fun - inside was fun as well but a bit hard to see what you are shooting at. A great experience and the staff was great. The new technology makes this so much more fun than the old time vests. The owner was incredibly nice. We highly recommend a few rounds and we can't wait to visit again next year!

Four of us played 3 rounds. We had a blast. My 10 and 14 year old daughters want to visit again before we head home. The owner and staff so a great job of accommodating everyone. It takes a little more skill than a regular laser tag arena. You have to use your sights and be accurate. The 3 field offer different experiences. We tried them all.

This is by far and away the best laser tag experience I have ever had. No bulky awkward vests. No flashy lights to give away your position. Lead by Dave, an army veteran who was part of a paratroopers squad, you get some tactical training for the briefing before heading in. The customer service we received was absolutely exceptional.

We called a bit early but were taken care of right then and there. We got personal print outs of all of our scores and stats, and received some coaching on how to employ better tactics.

The realism of the weapons is second to none. The need to reload and the use of the sights made the experience all the more authentic.

Only downsides were that the IR lasers had a tendency to fire through some of the cover, but the squatting, ducking, bobbing, and racing destroyed my thighs, and the adrenaline rush was unparalleled. The type that can only be forged in the fire of combat.

Bottom line is this:
If you pass through WI and miss this, YOU'RE DOING IT WRONG!

Thanks DCR for the kind words...our team, at Laser OPS Compound appreciates that your squad was challenged and satisfied simultaneously!! We work hard to offer a unique/authentic military laser tag experience that can be dialed up or down, based on the clientele's desires.
Thanks again for your patronage, hope to see you again at the Compound. FYI, Military Mayhem, our brand new multi-level outdoor battlefield will be opening in 1 week!!

We stopped today with some free passes but were not allowed to play. They said that the range for our coupon was not open but we could play for a deal of $10 each...some deal...$40 for a visit that should have been free. They then said it was because they didn't agree to have this coupon printed so early...in the book that is called the Summer Kickoff only good until the end of June. Sorry but it was not great customer service. Put a sign outside then or on your website instead of trying to sucker people in to paying more money.

Thank you for your concern. As a sole proprietor, Dad, coach and veteran, the number 1 goal of myself and our team is to wow you at Laser OPS Compound.
For over the last 6 years, Laser OPS Compound and Laser Warfare have had a first class history of exceptional and passionate service. This has been archived on every possible review site, ranging from Yelp and Facebook to the local chamber and TripAdvisor as well.
Laser OPS Compound offers the following:
1. The most authentic military themed laser tag in Wisconsin.
2. Indoor and outdoor arenas.
3. The longest battles in the Dells.
4. The lowest price by far, based on time.
5. Full metal guns (most advanced), no plastic toys.
6. Advanced training.
7. You choose your weapon.
8. You choose your music when battling.
9. Multiple themed wartime options.
10. A detailed individual and team summary is printed for every customer and verbally detailed (Laser OPS is the only attraction in the Dells that offers this).
11. And we offer a $6 discount to everyone whom chooses to play additional battles.
Now, in regards to opening the first known Laser Tag "Rifle Range" in the Midwest: as the owner, I strive to perpetually improve and offer more on a yearly basis. So our goal in the summer of 2017 was/is to open a first of its kind Range to our beloved customers. The impetus, is to offer a lower price point/high level taste to our customers on how to operate our weapons. For example, in the Dells it cost $5 to $8 to shoot 40+ paintballs at a coloring book, that's maybe 20 feet away. Our range would offer 8 targets, ranging from 50 to 150 feet away with a printed summary of your results. Our goal was/is to open this exciting new complimenting attraction by June 21st. Meanwhile, with great excitement, Laser OPS Compound agreed to be involved in the Summer Kickoff promotion.
As you stated, the promotion runs until the 29th of June. So, realizing this, I/we have decided to offer even MORE to the customer between May and June 29th.
Options are as follows, specific to the Summer Kickoff Promotion:
1. Laser OPS Compound has extended the June 29th deadline for the Rifle Range to July 21st.
2. Also, we are offering two additional promotions up to June 29th:
A. You may do a "Mini-Battle", this is a 6 minute wartime experience that gives you a taste of what we are know for at the same value or cost of the Rifle Range promotion.
Or
B. You can upgrade and play a full battle for $10, where you get the complete experience for $6 off (regardless if your coupon is only worth $3 or $6).
To date, 75% of our customers have chosen the upgrade and 25% have participated in the Mini-battles.
As you can see, we are NOT nor ever will be trying to, as you stated "sucker people into paying more"!
In 6 years, we have never raised our prices, yet our battles are 6 minutes longer than they were 4 years ago.
Laser OPS Compound continues to offer the best value in the Dells, for the most authentic laser tag experience. In addition, we relentlessly push ourselves to offer industry firsts, with passion and sincere gratitude.
Thank you for your concerns and for allowing Laser OPS Compound to address them. Hopefully, next time you will try our attraction and experience the fruits of our labor.

Sincerely,

The Laser OPS Team
