Who said laser tag is just for kids? In Ontario, adults can join in on the fun at an incredible arena that’s bringing in the next generation of laser tag.
Area 51 is a laser tag facility in Vaughan that features an incredible 5,000 square foot state-of-the-art arena. The space has been constructed with two bases that allow multiple variations of competitive team play, and their high tech equipment will make you feel like you’re in an epic Star Wars battle.
Each player will be given a microblaster that dispenses weapon upgrades when you redeem your credit from each tag. Light weight vests also make it easier for players to maneuver around the arena so don’t have to worry about getting overly fatigued during your match.
The facility does offer drop-in play ($21 for three 20-minute experiences), however if you have a group of friends to play with, you can book the entire arena to yourselves!
The Midnight Lockout option will let you and 20 of your friends have the arena from 11 pm to 3 am. You’ll have a huge party room to yourself as well, and the staff will even through in a party size pizza plus a case of water!
Bring back your childhood and book at Area 51 today! See their official website for more details.

History was made at a COVID-19 vaccine clinic in East York as it set Canada's record for most doses administered at one location in a single day.
The Thorncliffe Park Community Hub clinic administered 10,470 vaccine doses on Sunday, May 16, Toronto East Health Network (TEHN) announced on Twitter. Michael Garron Hospital shared photos of the clinic on Monday, which even has a live DJ to keep the energy high.
CBC Toronto shared a video capturing the cheers and celebrations that ensued when the clinic reached its 10,000-dose milestone — according to TEHN, the Thorncliffe Park clinic is made up of 108 volunteers, 74 pharmacy staff, 65 vaccinators, 55 registration clerks, and dozens of other team members.
Prime Minister Trudeau tweeted his congratulations to the clinic, saying, "This is exactly the kind of determination and teamwork it's going to take to beat this virus. A big thank you to everyone who helped make it happen."
As COVID-19 cases continue to drop, one of the province's top doctors has revealed that Ontario's reopening plan is on the way.
According to CP24, Christine Elliott, minister of health, told reporters on Tuesday that the plan will be coming "very soon."
"We have been working with the chief medical officer of health and the medical experts on a safe and careful reopening of Ontario because the last thing we want is to go into it too quickly and to get into a fourth wave. We have to do everything we can to avoid that so we are working on that and we expect it will be available very soon," Elliott said. "It is sector specific looking at what different types of sectors could perhaps be reopened and what their specific needs and timelines are."
All of Ontario is in a stay-at-home order, which is currently set to end on June 2. Yet, Dr. David Williams, Ontario's chief medical officer of health, had revealed earlier this month that the order may not be lifted until the province sees below 1,000 new cases a day.
