Immersive Laser Shooting Experience

You and your group are investigating a supernatural disturbance that has recently befallen our small backwoods town.

Residents are told that the regional power is supplied by the nearby industrial complex owned by the conglomerate, Xanis-Heftel, Inc. However, all is not what it seems. Ever since the ominous factory opened, the mysterious noises and distant screams echoing from the compound have baffled the neighboring town.

After last night’s explosion at the plant, things seem to have taken a turn for the worse. Someone…or something has taken over the factory and the unfortunate townsfolk are caught in the crossfire.

The Mission: Help them shut down the power source and uncover the secrets needed to stop this dangerous Menace.
