GellyBall at Black Mountain Adventure Zone

“Gellyball is a new, lower impact shooting experience for players as young as five and yet still exciting for teens and adults!” 

Players use our battery-powered, automated blasters to fire at targets and other players in a variety of game environments. When fired, the strange gel-based water orb ammunition feels like a rubber band. There is also no mess to tidy up.

Laser Tag at Black Mountain Adventure Zone

“Laser tag at BMAZ is not your typical arcade-style activity. Featuring LaserWar technology with multiple games and weapon modes, so every battle is different and exciting.”

VR at Black Mountain Adventure Zone

We are excited to announce the launch of our VR Games and VR Escape Rooms in time for the holiday season!
