Laser Tag hits the Northwoods
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 - DNA evidence from a pair of sweatpants could link a Northwoods man to a violent sexual assault. Prosecutors offered up some of that evidence against Richard Loppnow in Oneida County court on Wednesday morning.

The victim accuses Loppnow, 38, of forcing her into several sexual activities twice on his property south of Eagle River back on October 28 and 29th of 2017.  

The criminal complaint shows the first assault happened in a building on Loppnow's property.  Testimony revealed claims that Loppnow held a gun to the victim's head.

"[Loppnow was] advising that she could either be humiliated or shot in the head," Oneida County Detective Sergeant Ryan Rossing testified.  "She chose to be humiliated due to not wanting to be harmed."

After later moving to a mobile home trailer on the property, the victim claims Loppnow pointed a sawed-off shotgun or handgun to her head and gave her several options.
