French Lazers

When I was a young lad I went on a journey to live with a family in Grenoble, France. It was pretty fantastic. Not only did my French improve dramatically but I learned how to say a lot of bad words in French, that drinking was okay and that they had the most awesome laser tag place in the world (at least the way I remember it).

The only other time I have ever played the game was in Buffalo, NY. The best part about that was that when we were signing up they made us pick a code name. When they were handing out the equipment later this came back into play. Since none of us knew what the code names were for the guy had to say some pretty rediculous things. Needless to say, if that was the best part …

The best part about the French place was lack of rules or even any supervision. Sure someone left bleeding every game, but it was worth it! Imagine this, a giant 2 story room where it is dark with strobe lights flashing, smoke everywhere and blasting music. You can’t trust your senses at all to tell you what is going on so you must rely totally on your reactions.

There was a spot where you could jump down from the upper level to the lower one, there was a tunnel that was pitch black and had bars randomly across it at chest, shin and face height. You only run down that hallway once. Lots of sharp corners and lots of people in the game, don’t tell your mom about this place.

I would go there again in a second. Probably by now though it isn’t there anymore. If you are ever in Grenoble … FIND THIS PLACE AND PLAY LASER TAG! You probably won’t regret it, even if you need stiches.
