Are you ready to get started?

Q: What’s the biggest misconception about starting a new laser tag business?

A: That it’s an easy one – that somehow starting a laser tag company or opening a new laser tag facility is easy and the money will fly in the moment that you do.

Any business owner, no matter the trade, can tell you that that’s not how it works.

Don’t get me wrong, owning your own business allows for a sense of freedom, flexibility and fun that you won’t get being a paper pusher. But laser tag businesses require work, dedication, time and money to get off the ground. Our team works with business owners of all sizes, all over the world. We help with everything from financing a laser tag business to deciding on the right gear, laser tag packages or laser tag software licensing that makes sense for your audience and your business. While iCOMBAT Equipment offers services that are, essentially, a laser tag business in a box, that doesn’t mean you don’t have to put your own sweat equity in to make it a successful business.

The old adage that you get what you give is true even in owning your own laser tag facility. Don’t worry, there’s plenty of fun, money and growth to be had if you’re willing to do work. We know. iCOMBAT Equipment is a living, breathing example that a career and successful business in laser tag is not only possible but it’s within reach.
