Ready, aim, fire. Battle House Laser Tag is celebrating its grand opening.

To celebrate, the local game house will offer discounts to customers today and Sunday on its 90-minute play times, normally $30 per person. There will also be goodies and prizes on hand.

Modeled after the popular video game, “Call of Duty,” Battle House launched late last month at its 20,000-square-foot space at 1817 Hall Drive on the grounds of the Wilmington International Airport.

The Wilmington laser tag complex includes a mock city setup, with some two-story obstacle structures, in about 8,000 square feet of the facility. There is even an indoor area created to resemble the outdoors.

Battle House can accommodate up to 30 participants at a time in a variety of mission- and time-based scenarios. It also includes two rooms for birthday and bachelor parties, corporate retreats and other functions.

In addition to the $5 discount on games, Battle House will give students an additional $5 off with promo code “Grand-O$5:)”. There will be free refreshments and snacks for players.

Owner Darek Huckbody has joined in on the Wilmington Area Hospitality Association’s (WAHA’s) fundraiser for UNC-Wilmington students enrolled in the Recreation, Sport Leadership and Tourism Management program. Ten percent of proceeds from this weekend will be donated to the scholarship. Battle House is also raffling off T-shirts, weapon upgrades, game time and two party packages to raise additional money for the cause.
