The full experience from start to finish is 30 minutes. This includes time for instructions and time to hide before the game begins. The gameplay is 15 minutes.
Please ensure you arrive AT LEAST 15 minutes before your start time. This will give you plenty of time to get checked in, find the Vault, and go over rules.
Please be sure to read the information below so you have the best experience possible:
- Wear sensible shoes! Running is part of the game and we want all players to be comfortable in the Bunker.
- Laser Tag at the Bunker is not currently fully accessible. There are stairwells included in the layout of the playing field. Please keep this in mind.
- A lounge/reception area will be set up in the Bank of Canada Vault, which is cooler in temperature than the rest of the building.

- We are very excited to welcome back our partner Funlight Laser Tag for this event. Please check out their website https://funlight.ca/
Laser tag rules at the Diefenbunker
RULE #1: LASER TAG IS A NON-CONTACT SPORT
You’re not playing Rugby-tag! Laser Tag is designed to be a non-contact sport. Any contact with an opponent is grounds for removal from the game. Players who touch their opponents will be considered “out” and will leave the game.
RULE #2: SENSORS MUST BE VISIBLE DURING GAME-PLAY
Covering a sensor to prevent your tagger from receiving tags is poor sportsmanship and any player who covers their sensor will be considered “out” and will leave the game.
RULE #3: EQUIPMENT FAILURE
If a tagger fails mid-game that player is considered out. An exception can be made if the malfunction is caused by low batteries. In this case, the player can be considered in a “time out” and their batteries replaced. They can then re-join the game if possible.
RULE #4: SPORTSMANSHIP IS IMPORTANT
If you cheat to win you haven’t won! Sportsmanship is essential to a good laser tag experience. Any lying or cheating should not be tolerated and should result in disqualification of the player who does so. Hiding your sensor (see rule #2), resetting your tagger when you’re out, or any other dubious acts are against the rules! Nobody likes a cheater!
RULE #5: KEEP LASER TAG FUN
Remember: Laser Tag isn’t currently an Olympic sport; there are no contracts or scholarships on the line. The number one reason to play laser tag is to have fun. Being frustrated or angry is literally against the rules of laser tag. If you feel that way during a laser tag match take a few minutes, grab a refreshment and get your chill on!
RULE #6: RESPECT YOUR ENVIRONMENT
Always remember you are playing in a Museum. Please respect the building, its history, and the artifacts inside it. At no time should any player play with the electrical equipment or fire equipment inside the museum, they are real, live, and out of bounds. Interaction with the museum, electrical, or fire equipment in an inappropriate/non-respectful manner will result in the disqualification of the player who does so. Additionally, all play must stay within the defined boundaries.
RULE #7: IN THE EVENT OF INJURY
In the event there is a person who becomes injured during play, all players must stop and help that person. Staff should also be notified IMMEDIATELY.
Any cancellations must be communicated a minimum of three days (72 hours) in advance of the event. Cancellations that fall within 72 hours to 24 hours in advance of the booking are subject to a 50% cancellation fee. Cancellations that fall within 24 hours of the booking will not be refunded. Please call the museum at 613-839-0007.
