EAGLE RIVER - Fun in the Northwoods can mean going out on the lake, taking a hike, and now, playing laser tag!
Eagle Falls Adventure Golf in Eagle River added Northern Lights Laser Tag to their facility this year.
The interactive game is played in a two-floor, 3 thousand square foot arena.
Fog, black lights and music help bring the experience to a whole different level.
"We typically run a 2 team format. So it's the blue team versus the red team. And the best way to describe laser tag, if you haven't done it before, is it's like a high tech game of hide and seek or capture the flag. Or you could even consider it like paintball without the paint," said owner Mark Cropsey.
The game now gives Eagle Falls Adventure Golf an opportunity to be open on rainy days.
People of all ages can enjoy the game.
"To day I think our youngest player was three and our oldest was 85 and they all enjoyed it. All ages," said Cropsey.
You have one final weekend to play laser tag.
They are open through Labor Day.
After that you can play Saturdays only until October 5th.
RHINELANDER - A snow storm caught Hanson's Garden Village in Rhinelander off guard last weekend and collapsed a greenhouse. Now that spring weather is here, Hanson's is ready to move forward by making some adjustments.
"We got by for 25 years doing what we were doing," said Hanson's Garden Village Co-owner Brent Hanson.
Last weekend's spring snow storm set back Hanson's.
"We thought we were ahead of schedule having that greenhouse nice and filled," said Hanson's Manager Beth Hanson.
"One bad storm and there you go. Things happen," said Brent.
The storm collapsed a greenhouse holding thousands of plants.
"For years we've gotten by with these lighter cheaper green houses," said Brent.
"We'll be down a greenhouse for a little bit here," said Beth.
