Laser tag at galleries in time for school holidays

GAMERS are in for a treat at the Cedar Galleries - and it isn't one found at their cafe.

The galleries now have laser tag equipment ready to be used during these school holidays for children and adults.

Co-owner Angela Scheers said it was the ideal place for battle.

"We have this amazing village of timber huts and great gardens so it's the perfect setting for close combat urban battles.

"There are just so many doorways and hiding spots to take cover and plan your next move," said co-owner Angela Scheers.

Multiple sessions are held everyday during the school holidays and will continue after too. Co-owner Sandy Walsh said it was available for adults only, for whole families or for children.

"Since we've owned Cedar Galleries our focus has been firmly on good, healthy, outdoor family time.

"Introducing laser tag was a natural progression for us," she said.

Sessions are fully supervised and suitable for kids from ages 6 and up.

A two hour daylight session costs $29 per player and includes a free drink and you take home your camo hat as a souvenir.

Booking can be done either over the phone on 4975 0444 or on the Cedar Galleries website http://www.cedargalleries.com.au
