About Us


about-us2Backyard Laser Tag™ is an independently owned and operated business based in the Pinehurst, NC area. We are affiliated with the area’s best Mobile Video Game Truck, Rockin’ Rollin’ Video Game Party™ ( visit our web site here ). We do everything from our main focus, which is Birthday Parties to School Events, Church Festivals and Charity Events. You’ll also find us at Business and Family Expos, Holiday Events like Parades and City Celebrations as well as Athletic Events from Little League Baseball to Minor League Hockey games. We have raised funds for many charities and schools and give 5% back from Birthday Parties to the Wounded Warrior Project.

When we looked into starting our own business, it was important for us to give something back to the community. If a school, church or non-profit hands out our flyer and a party is booked as a result, the organization receives $20 cash back for fundraising. We can also raise funds by being part of a “kids zone” at a large event and either charging tickets to play Laser Tag or accepting a wristband or ticket for timed play. Depending on the arrangement, either a percentage goes back to the organization or 100% goes back, if the Mobile Game Theater has been hired in advance.

The look on the kids’ faces, young and old, makes our job fun. Every party is different and we have met some terrific families and organizations through this adventure!
