Best cheap laser tag sets

Stephanie Jarrett

Laser tag sets come with laser guns and vests that light up when a player is struck by an opponent.

What are the best laser tag sets for under $150?

Laser tag is a great game to play indoors or outdoors with friends and family. To play, each player straps on a vest, grabs a laser gun and tries to hit other players with their laser gun. Vests will light up or vibrate to let a player know when they’ve been hit.

Players can play as a team or individually, in broad daylight or once the sun goes down, inside the house or out in the yard. The more obstacles you include in your playing field, the more challenging the game becomes. All the laser tag sets on this list can be enjoyed by kids and adults alike, so suit up and get ready for battle.

Something to keep in mind — most of the laser tag sets listed require batteries. Some require AA while others require AAA. Be sure to check the description on the set you plan to buy so you can be prepared.
