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 Rhinelander couple thought they were empty nesters. However, an experience volunteering made them open their doors back up to kids who need a temporary home. The Zoerb's adult children moved out years ago. But at any moment they could get a call from social services that make them bring out their parenting skills for another round. Rick and Danielle Zoerb work together as realtors putting people in homes that are the perfect fit. However, the husband and wife know their home can be a good fit for others too. "There's no reason for kids to have to fall through the cracks," said Dani. Rick met a child at a mentorship program a few years ago. It was a meeting that opened a new door for him and his wife. "There was no hesitation on our part when we felt the situation was deteriorating for this young boy," said Rick.
