More than 25 Gen8 Infinity systems have been shipped into the hot laser tag market since its release in September 2018. This is the fastest market penetration of any previous system in Laserforce’s 30-year history.
“We knew we had something special based on the overwhelmingly positive feedback, but the early results have been beyond even our most optimistic projections,” remarked Jeff Willy, Laserforce COO. “We are shipping a new system every week, some weeks even 2-3. We’re seeing strong interest from sites with older competitor systems who are looking to revitalize their laser tag attraction.”
With any new system as ground-breaking as Gen8 Infinity, one might expect a certain degree of kinks to work out, but this has not been the case. Gen8 Infinity is proving to be as robust & reliable as its predecessor, the best-selling Gen7 system. – Nancy Rockhill (Sales Manager-Americas)

“I think some people were taking a wait-and-see approach to make sure the chest and phaser screens would hold up to heavy use. We are happy to report that there has not been a single screen failure in the field,” said Andy Williams, Laserforce USA production manager.
“Expect a focus on easy-to-use functionality. We want to deliver compelling new content that will specifically target casual laser tag players,” commented Marko Caldwell, Laserforce graphic designer.

What this could mean? The Laser Tag Convention at Amusement Expo last week is proof that the laser tag industry is still one of the top attraction choices for our industry. I have stated many times that laser tag has one of the highest revenue to cost ratios, often performing between 2:1 and 3:1. That means if you pay for example $170,000 for a complete laser tag/arena, average revenue exceeds $340,000. Note that my ratios are based on FEC models and may not hold for stand-a-lone laser tag facilities. Our industry is grateful to each of the laser tag companies for continuing to raise the bar of their laser tag systems and also to those who design the arenas.
