Laser tag facility now open in Avon

By Brenda L. Holmes

AVON —  

Gerry and Karen Modisett have opened a new laser tag facility in Avon called Xtreme Lazer Tag.

The couple and their two children have been running a similar facility for 13 years in Terre Haute.

“We do lots of group events,” Karen Modisett said. “We try to have those when we are not normally open to the public, so a business can have the whole place to themselves.”

She said it’s been a fun business to run because people have such a good time.

“I love it when a kid comes out and says something like ‘this is the most fun I’ve ever had,’” Modisett said. “It’s also nice for those corporate events when people get to see the ‘fun side’ of their boss.”

She said when a group of adults come in, the competitive spirit comes to life.

“I’m telling you, it’s not just little kids — everyone loves laser tag,” she said.

Xtreme Lazer Tag is at 8131 Kingston St., Suite 100, which is the industrial park on the south east corner of the intersection of U.S. 36 and Dan Jones Road in Avon.
