Horror Laser Tag Experience

Nightmare Combat is a special, once a year event in Columbus, Ohio that combines the thrills and chills of the Halloween season with the exhilarating fun of laser tag! This tactical experience puts your survival skills to the test by putting you face to face with the creatures that haunt your dreams. You will receive a realistic training weapon so you’re ready to take on whatever it is lurking in the dark.

The details in the rooms were phenomenal and even for the people in the back of the group, there were plenty of kills to be had. Great time, we will be back.

The Setting

Hollywood Quality sets

You will journey through a 40,000 square foot immersive environment featuring Hollywood quality sets. This event will feature a world themed after a post apocalyptic cityscape complete with overturned cars, city streets, a giant haunted asylum, a slaughterhouse and countless other scenes.



You will encounter dozens of live actors and performers with professional costumes and makeup.  These actors have targets built into their costumes that are triggered by your weapons and will signify you when they have been defeated. Just like any video game you will also have to conquer the giant boss before you complete your mission. 

Was a blast, very intense and good adrenaline rush.
