The “paintball-meets-laser-tag” concept features two playing fields that mimic Hollywood-style movie sets…

Are you a big fan of laser tag? Or love nothing more than challenging your mates over a video shooter game? Multiply those adrenaline-busting feelings by ten and you’ve got Xstrike – a new live action combat simulation concept opening in Dubai’s Al Quoz.

Officially opening its doors on Friday December 13, Xstrike covers 31,000 square feet, bringing you out of the screen and into a real live-action combat scenario.

Described as a live action experience that “successfully bridges the gap between traditional paintball and laser tag”, Xstrike uses weapons systems and software from iCombat, a leading US live action combat simulation experience.

Combat simulation enthusiasts can get kitted out in the necessary gear, choose their weapon and head into one of two playing fields that closely mimic Hollywood movie sets.

The experience sees between two and 40 players split into two teams and sent on different missions, where special effects and custom-made props create the feel of a live-action battle.

You’ll search high and low for the best shooting angles, exploring different fields such as an authentic military-themed Base Camp, a mystical “Post-Apocalyptic City” and an “Abandoned Subway”.

Different missions have their own objectives and rewards, with players and teams able to track their performance throughout the game as well as afterwards on the leaderboard screen.

As well as the main attraction designed for ages 10 and above, Xstrike is also home to the “Tactical Laser Tag”, hero blast and arcade games – so there’s something to keep all gaming fans busy.

Prices for Xstrike start from Dhs89.
