19.09.2009: MEGAZONE (TALLINN): LASER TAG PLAYERS ARE WELCOME TO USE CAMO FACE PAINTING!
Rather an interesting marketing innovation is introduced at Megazone lasertag site in Estonian Tallinn (Tartu mnt. 80F, Tallinn 10112): prior to entering the maze, the players can apply camo face paint now. As they say, "Camo face painting may provide the player with some type of tactical advantage (in a dark maze, the opposing players can hardly detect the player with a camouflaged face); besides, a person with camo face painting just looks great!". The paint they use is of natural origin, is allergy-tested and absolutely safe; the same type may be used for military operations and by hunters. When required, Megazone staff can help the player with applying the paint the proper way. Looks like face painting is not a bad idea to attract more visitors; besides, it can be easily implemented and for sure may add some traces of uniqueness to a laser tag arena.
