Play laser tag 57 floors above Philly on Halloween night

Josh Middleton

On Halloween night, while the little ones are tottering through the streets foraging for candy, you could be running around the 57th floor of a skyscraper blasting bad guys with a laser gun.

One Liberty Observation Deck (OLOD) announced today that it’s hosting an event on Halloween night that offers costumed locals the chance to battle it out in a game of laser tag—all the while taking in a 360-degree view of the city on All Hallows’ Eve.

The laser tag is hosted by Spec-Ops Laser Tag and is being billed as “Philly’s first-ever Halloween-themed laser tag event at the top of a skyscraper.” Besides all the running around and zapping, there will also be themed activities held throughout the night as well as the chance to dance to tunes from a DJ and sip cocktails in a bar area downstairs.

The event—part of One Liberty Observation Deck’s One Fit Philly initiative that encourages folks to get moving while also having fun—takes place October 31. Arrival and registration begins between 5 and 5:30pm, and the actual laser tag portion of the evening happens from 5:30 to 9pm.

If you want to do it, you better hurry. There’s only room for 12 teams of 10, and they’re likely to go fast. To register a full team or buy individual tickets for $30 each, go here. If you have your own team of 10, you’ll save $20 on your registration fee. Individual ticket holders will be placed in teams upon arrival.

Costumes are highly encouraged—if not a little mandatory. At the end of the night prizes will be doled out not only to first-place finishers in laser tag, but also to those wearing the best get-up.
