MOTHER and daughter team Sandy Walsh and Angela Scheers were looking for a new use for the grounds at the Cedar Galleries Arts and Crafts Village at Calliope.

Since the last school holidays, they have had the frequent squeals and excited laughs of children running around playing laser tag.

"The kids have been coming back four or five times and they're loving it," Mrs Walsh said.

"We had a little girl wearing a pink tutu in the battle gear - we called her battle Barbie."

But it's not just for the little kids. A lot of times the parents will join in too."

Mrs Walsh said they had an 87-year-old who kept trying to climb on the roof to "shoot" people.

"That's why there are rules as well, to keep it safe," she said.

"We're working on a bush field out the back and we're already doing night games for adults as well."

A birthday party on the weekend saw about 12 children for an "Avengers" party for seven-year-old Blaike Miller, led by dad Ben. "It's our first time out here and we're having a great day," Mr Miller said.

"It's good fun for the kids and something different."
