Children’s birthday parties and family gatherings are the target for a new laser business in town.
The first of its kind in the district, Outlast Laser Sports is a family-owned business operated by local residents Corey and Natalie Cousineau along with Andrew and Lorraine Peters.
The young group—all born and raised here—wanted to bring some entertainment to the area and came across the idea on the Internet to rent out a full laser tag set-up.
It’s to get the whole family out and active, said Corey Cousineau.
“We wanted to bring something different and fun to town that would be suitable for all ages,” he remarked.
Once rented, the laser tag system is brought to the customer’s home or a town park, such as Pither’s Point or the Lions Park. The group also sets up an obstacle course of fun for the party.
A minimum of 50’ x 50’ of open space is required to set up in a backyard, but Cousineau noted they do have the town’s permission to utilize local parks.
“The whole system is completely mobile and we will take it anywhere in the district,” he stressed.
The laser fun around town started in June, but their first official day of business was on July 1 during the Canada Day festivities at Pither’s Point.
“Over 146 people tried out the new activity, and most didn’t want to stop,” Cousineau said.
Up to 14 players can participate at a time, and the system can be rented by the hour per gun. It costs $16 per gun for the first hour, and $10 per gun after that.
