My little brother went to Laser Quest which is a place where young children can get a bunch of their friends and play laser tag. He loved it so much that his next birthday he wanted to get one where he could play at home. He ended up buying Jackks laser challenge pro set. It is a set which costs about 60 dollars to buy and it comes with two small pistol/handgun looking laser guns. Each gun comes equiped with a goofy looking scope but from I can tell it doesn't really help and is there just for the looks (or just for the fact that kids can say they "scoped" you out). The set does use batteries to run and from my experience the batteries do not last long because I have seen my little brother frequently change them out. Actually playing with the guns are a lot of fun because the guns have these tiny LCD screens that allow you to keep score and see if you hit your friend. THe sounds are loud and great but a warning to parents, it can be kind of noisy and crazy when kids are lost in these things. The only downside I can think of is that this set only comes with two guns and a one vs. one game is only fun for so long. But for an affordable laser tag exeperience, it's not the worst thing in the world.
