Laser Tag Scorpio used at Laser LoL in León
You have to travel to León to visit its spectacular cathedral, try the famous tapas and wines of its lively wet neighborhood or to discover (and try to understand) the Modern Art that houses the MUSAC (Museum of Contemporary Art). But if among all these visits you have 10 free minutes on the agenda and € 2.5 loose in your pocket, a leisure alternative in the city center is to play a game of Laser Tag.
The Laser Tag is a simulated combat game in which two teams fight each other using weapons that emit an infrared beam of light. Each player has one or more sensors located in the body that warn, with an acoustic signal, of the "impact" of an adversary successfully. In León you can play Laser Tag in a large commercial bass of the Laser LOL company in the central Lope de Vega street.
Have you seen the movie "Iron Sergeant"? In one of his unit's training scenes, Clint Eastwood broke the rules (which gave the lieutenant's favorite squad an advantage) and ambushed the "enemy" squad. There was no real fire but they used the MILES simulation system, on which the Laser Tag game is based, widely used since the 80s in armies around the world.

If when you play paintball you have to take protections against paintballs, here it is not necessary because projectiles are not fired. Nor should we be aware that we are going to get stained from head to toe if the opposing team has better aim than ours.
The weapons used in LaserLOL seem submachine guns for a layman, although they are manufactured specifically for the Laser Tag and are of the "Scorpio" model. They weigh almost two and a half kilos, are metallic and do not appear to be a toy, even if they are. They have an optical laser viewfinder and have sound effects (i.e. shooting noise) and light (beams of light in the mouth of the barrel).
