Dubbed "Hertfordshire's most exciting family experience", a new Laser Quest arena is set to open in Hemel Hempstead.

The site will be based at 200 Marlowes, opposite The Marlowes Shopping Centre, and will open its doors on February 16.

"Pulse-pounding action" has been promised, within "a world of galactic-themed labyrinths, catwalks, and mazes".

Special effects, music and dazzling lights will be included, in what has been called "the most immersive laser tag experience yet".

The game is suitable for children taller than 1.2 metres, and arcade games can be enjoyed pre and post-match.

Owner Jam Motafram said: "I am thrilled to be bringing Laser Quest to Hertfordshire, and it has been great to find an ideal site for this fantastic attraction.

"The closure of Quasar back in 2020 has left a real gap for an attraction of this kind and my team and I are really pleased to be bringing a Laser Tag experience back to Hemel Hempstead.

"Local families have told us how much they loved Quasar, and Laser Quest is the most recent and most immersive laser tag experience in the UK so we are confident that our new attraction will be welcomed by residents of Hemel Hempstead and the surrounding area.

"The Laser Quest arena that we have created really pits teams against each other in a galactic-style environment where they have to take on their opponents to be the ultimate Laser Quest champion.

"It really does feel like you are stepping into a video game, it feels that real - it is the ultimate Laser Quest sci-fi action adventure. 


"It is also the perfect attraction for birthday parties, big groups looking for an active night out and businesses keen to get some team building scheduled in for 2024.

"It's the perfect, fun, competitive and exhilarating game to enjoy."
