Outdoor Laser Tag Challenge - We flunked!

What : After Earth Outdoor Laser Tag Challenge

Where : Awana Resort, Genting Highland

When : 1st June 2013 (Saturday)

Few familiar faces were present, from TS Dayout Geng to Hardrore Compers Geng, and we met 2 new friends, Amirul n Marwan, to complete our 10 men-team. Gagah rasa. Xde pompuan dalam team kitaorg. Prolly that would be our biggest disadvantage? Why would i said that? Read on to find out why..

wonder what are they looking at?

All ready n excited!

Prizes up for grab!

Registration began around 8 am, each participant gets a backpack, a tee, a lanyard with our team number. We were team no. 8!

Smile, you are on candid camera!

Janji menang posing!

the equipment

waiting anxiously..

First round started around 9.15 am, and we had a good time laughing at those team that start first.

This game isnt that phsical, by right, you might just have to duck and wait for someone to peek (targeting their hat or gun) and you'll gonna hit him/her. But time, time is of essance, each round is limited to 5 minutes, and towards the end one of the team might tend to do sort a suicide mission or something.

Why this game isnt that phsical (and painless too, except heartache of not winning the grand prize of course) simply because the gun just shooting out infra red and when you got hit, an 'ouch' sound means that you have been hit. Unlike paintball, a sharp shooter to any part of you body gonna leave a temporary mark, but for this game, as long as the sensor can detect other player's gun or hat, you are done. A skull sign at the small display on

Short briefing were given on the rules and do and don't, the gun and the sensors. Each gun has 15 magazines (1000 bullets) and you'll get 10 life each. There's 2 mode of firing, single and semi auto (we were advised to used the latter). The gun will be automatically deactivated once you are 'dead'.

 Simple kan? Well, it feels like it at first.  

We were the noisiest, loudest, Rambo-like, havoc team that day!

There were 3 rounds each. first 3 minutes was for a test round, and the couple of rounds later, the actual 'war'. The actual round lasted for 5 minutes each, and winner of course, with the highest points.

its getting hot..

We almost win the first round, everything went well, until it went down to 3 vs 1, meaning that we still left with 3 members and the opponent's team left with one. and all 3 of us had an empty magazine. peluru habis sudah. So we couldnt 'kill' that last guy! Urggh!! just imagine how frustrated we were, and we (3 of us) got killed by this one guy alone. Memang Rambo sungguh perasaan dia time tu, im sure of it!

Team 8 in action

2nd round started a bit slow, as everyone were patiently waiting for the other part to make a move and try to be defensive. 3 minutes left on the clock. We made a first move and the rest is history. The thing is that, you only heard the 'ouch' 'ouch' sound and the next thing you know, you are out of the game. As for me, i survived both rounds, but our team didnt. We lost by a small margin of points. It was a sudden death match, meaning you need to win to qualify for the 2nd level, later of the day.

 just point and shoot.. just point and shoot..

aim carefully with the blue dot marker..

Peng! Peng! Peng!! Amik kaww!! Dont do this if you are playing paintball yerr.. 

Haha.. yes. acted like a Rambo team or something, all strategise or something, flunked it on the first round. Menang gaya orang kata. Peh!

Enjoy the vid i took during the game, between two other teams. 

It was a fun (kind a tiring a bit) session i must say. Prolly because of the heat.

Only 12 team turn up that day, (suppose to be 20 teams) so the game ended much earlier for much awaited lunch, a scrumptious buffet at the Rajawali Restaurant. 


We didnt wait up for the next level, as everyone has something else to do that evening (dah kalah, xde mood sebenarnya) so we just follow latest updates from Morjhan's FB status instead.

Turn out Morjhan wife's team made it to Semi Final round! Perghh, but sadly, didnt make it to the final.

Prizes is for top 3 individuals, and the winners are : 

Congratulations! You guys are the best!

I wish to extend my sincere thanks to Sony Pictures Malaysia and Awana Resort Genting for the kind invitation, and looking forward to take part in any future events.

Ok continue excited mood. I got chosen as one of the participant for the Hot FM Taklukan Pejabat 'After Earth'! Well, atleast i won this one right? :) Update on this will follow. 

*Update : till this date, i didnt get any follow-up call from Hot FM. Not sure what went wrong. Im sure that guy called me up and said im one of the winner. Humm.. i dont feel like making havoc out of it. Let see what happen next! Yup. called him again, was not in the office, left a message for him to call me back. So lets wait! :) 

Have a great week everyone!
