National Sarcasm Society Award of Distinction
We were recently honored by the National Sarcasm Society at the their annual convention for over 2 decades of cutting edge product presentation. Our cynical banter was recognized as an industry leader in both print and verbal communication. We mean . . .like get serious, no real suspense here- who else is going to take down the victory?. Of course we deserved the excessive fawning adulation, so whatever!
Governor Newsom Feels Our Pain!
The “Gov” got crazy active on his social media about our closing- we appreciate the heartfelt sentiment
A Peek Inside The ZONE- What It Was Like For Us To Be Here !
It’s only been a few days since we posted our closure, but we really feel beloved! While all of us at The ZONE have now headed into the “fog” forever, the outpouring of heartfelt sentiments on social media served as the many goodbye hugs we did not get to experience.
We, who are forever a part of the ULTRAZONE staff family, will always remain a very fortunate group. Day after day we were continually surrounded by laughter and happiness.
The ZONE was a special place- more than just laser tag, although all of the staff love to play laser tag against each other. For us it was about the connection to the player. With friendly and absurdly outgoing personalities, for us interacting with guests was just the best of life. Whether it was the 7 year old who would arrive and proudly announce that he or she was finally old enough to play, or the corporate visitor who would reluctantly agree to play- only to return to the lobby after the game screaming and laughing or the teenage player who seemed to actually live at ULTRAZONE- it was so wonderful. We all so loved working at ULTRAZONE- laughing with each other all day and night. Players could feel that, and it made for such memorable and unique moments.
We hope you had an opportunity to play. If not then ask a friend or two about when they played- we bet they’ll have a great memory to share.
It was a wonderful privilege to have helped create so many happy memories for so many of our San Diego friends!. 4 1/2 million people will always be able to reminisce and say “Hey, I went to ULTRAZONE back in the day and got to PLAY THE GAME THAT WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE! The place was amazing!.”
Share you memories of your visits and remember to always capture your opponents bases for a great score.
Your ULTRAZONE staff

The Mystery of the Crystal Jewel- New Arena Discovery

Played Tag With Your Colleagues Lately
The business community continues to turn to the nocturnal world of ULTRAZONE for their major event needs. Our San Diego corporate event and team building program has really reached new levels of popularity. We continue to be flattered by the letters of appreciation and complimentary comments that come our way.
ULTRAZONE Is A “Gum Free” ZONE
After removing more gum from the lobby and briefing room carpet than you could even possibly imagine (we’re talking many hundreds of ugly carpet gum messes each year), we’ve decided that WE’RE DONE WITH GUM. That’s right you and your gum will have to part company BEFORE you enter ULTRAZONE. There’s a really nice, large cement trash receptacle near the front door, so just gear yourself up to spit that bad boy into the can.
So remember gum and ULTRAZONE don’t mix!
Bases Are Now Lit!
Having trouble finding your opponents’ bases? We’ve taken pity on your lack of skills and added flashing lights to indicate the color of each base.
So absolutely no more whining “I couldn’t find the bases!”
“The Gateway” Is Discovered
“The Gateway” was recently discovered during a routine exploration of the Eastern portion of The ZONE (The Subterranean City of the Far Future). As the ZONE squad approached a darkened area, Iron Doors suddenly opened revealing a “Gateway” into a large fog filled grotto, with a series of paths leading to the surface of the planet. Later, as the squad reentered The ZONE, the Iron Doors closed behind them indicating that “The Gateway” can only be opened from the interior! Further exploration is planned.
We Love Us Some Active Lifestyle Nerds
Ok, so there is no competition for our and especially Steve’s absolute favorite San Diego Meet-Up Group!. Year after year the Nerd gang would post “Laser Tag and Steve” 5:00pm on a weekend and just roll in. This crew will always be a part of ZONE lore!

One Hour Endurance Games- 60 Minutes of Action
So we started having these games many years ago, the night before holidays, maybe every other week during summer and they always sold out– just how crazy is that. They would start typically right after we closed at 10:00pm. We remember the phones calls, “Are there any spots left for tonight’s ENDURANCE?” Here’s a flyer with a favorite staff person- “G”= Guillermo
