‘Set phasers to stun’ was a phrase commonly heard in Star Trek shows.
At the Laser Matrix in Greenock, the lasers are set to fun but the huge, state of the art arena is certainly stunning.

Today’s sizzling Big Deal is for four people to play two games of Laser Tag at the Laser Matrix in Greenock.
Rated a four star visitor attraction by VisitScotland, Scotland’s largest multi-level laser tag arena is the ultimate playground for laser combat.
Designed over multiple levels, it poses a serious strategic challenge – ramps, corners, hidden spots, twisted corridors all offer cover and allow you to sneak up on your opponents.
Custom artwork inside the arena, pumping music, illuminated vests and the coloured lasers from the phasers all make for a unique and truly awesome laser battle experience.
Laser tag is very similar to paintball, but played with a laser gun or phaser and a vest with sensors. There is no paint to muck up your clothes; being hit by the laser beams isn’t harmful and, unlike paintball, there is no chance of it hurting.
Laser tag games are fast, exciting, challenging and fun entertainment for players of all ages and experience. It is absolutely safe and perfectly suited for kids, but it is still challenging and exciting enough to be great entertainment for adults as well.
Depending on the chosen mission, the objectives of the game can be quite different. There might be two teams playing against each other to control the arena or you could play as a solo fighter and try to eliminate as many opponents as possible.
Laser tag would be ideal for a group of mates to play and it would also be fun for a stag or hen.
We’re not sure what HR would make of this but Team Big Deal also reckon that it would be a good way for Accounts and Legal to settle their beef instead of the usual square go in the car park.
Most importantly, the school holidays are not long off. Today’s Big Deal is the perfect way for the kids to let off steam before you feel like vaporising them.
