« back | 16.03.2008: "A SPECIAL ARENA": INTERVIEW WITH LASERMAXX ARENA OPERATOR FROM RIGA (LATVIA, EU)

:: INTERVIEW WITH THE CO-OWNER OF THE LASERMAXX ARENA (LASERMAXX EVOLUTION III SYSTEM / BOWLERO FEC, RIGA - LATVIA), Mr. I.BERKOVITCH ::
(Adopted translation from Russian. For more information - please, visit the Web-page of the arena »)

TRUTNEE: - Why have you decided to purchase LaserMaxx system?

LASERMAXX: - To be honest, at the moment of its purchasing we didn't get much information about laser tags. We came across LaserMaxx brand quite accidentally. When we contacted LaserMaxx staff, we were informed about their special promotions, such as Country-Premier program and Special year's discount; which we appreciated.

TRUTNEE: - What is your impression of LaserMaxx system from the point of view of operator? Do you have any claims?

LASERMAXX: - The weak point is phaser. From time to time some of the phasers fail to perform some of the specific functions; thus being an operator you should have some extra phasers for spare purposes. Alas we have absolutely no claims concerning the software and the vests, which perform very well.

TRUTNEE: - I think it'll be true to say that your arena's maze is rather remarkable. What was the motivation for constructing a unique-decorated maze?

LASERMAXX: - We were deeply impressed by the arena we've seen in Holland. And the idea to create a unique-decorated arena was inspired by our own vision, was approved by the designing artist and matched the maze plan, too. Also, we could afford the extra expenses caused by our desire to get a specially decorated arena.

TRUTNEE: - What are the most impressive parts of your maze?

LASERMAXX: - The most impressive is the central part of the maze where a special figure is installed. The figure is placed on a podium illuminated by special light effects. At the maze we also use special UV-paintings, neon illumination, fog machine, laser lights and other special effects equipment.

TRUTNEE: - Can you say that an unusual maze attracts more visitors than a standard one does? Is it of any help when competing with another neighboring arena?

LASERMAXX: - I think the most important factor to attract the visitors is the city district where arena is located. The availability of other types of entertainment is important, too.

TRUTNEE: - How careful the players are? At your arena, have you seen any cases of vandalism?

LASERMAXX: - Unfortunately, when talking about the players' attitude to the maze, I can say that it is often a barbarous one.

TRUTNEE: - What do the players like most of all at your arena? Is there anything they dislike?

LASERMAXX: - Most of all they like the design of our maze. Sometimes they are puzzled by the problems with phasers.

TRUTNEE: - What is the age of your average player?
LASERMAXX: - The average player is 12-15 years old, though initially we thought that our visitors would be older.

TRUTNEE: - Are there any regular players' teams at your arena? Do you organize laser tag tournaments for them?

LASERMAXX: - Our attempt to organize a special tournament failed.

TRUTNEE: - Many of the laser tag manufacturers (i.e., LaserTron, LaserQuest, etc.) are known to organize special laser tag tournaments for the regular players who play their system. From the point of view of an operator, do you think it could be useful for you if such laser tag tournament was organized by LaserMaxx trade mark? And what is your attitude to multi-system laser tag tournaments of Armageddon type?

LASERMAXX: - We are lack of experience in this sphere, but are ready to consider any ideas and ways of co-operation.

TRUTNEE: - Which ways of advertising do you use? Do you advertise on TV, at newspapers, etc.?

LASERMAXX: - We place advertisements in Internet and newspapers, on TV and radio broadcasts.

TRUTNEE: -Do you plan to introduce some innovations at your arena soon?

LASERMAXX: - In the nearest time - we don't...

TRUTNEE: - Thanks a lot for your answers!
