Laser Tag at the Bunker

Ever played laser tag 75 feet underground, in a decommissioned Bunker?

No? We didn’t think so either. Come play Ottawa’s most unique laser tag experience at the Bunker. You’ll be given exclusive game access to the 100 level (normally off limits) and the 200 level – over 15,000 square feet. You’ll explore the depths of the isolated bunker hallways, dramatic black lights, and hidden rooms to find your target and win the game (Bragging rights!).

Will you accept the challenge?
