Operating The WhirlyBug
The whirlybugs are steered by a joystick-like crank, while the player puts pressure on the foot pedal, located inside the vehicle.
Steering the vehicle in either direction will result in continuous circles. One complete turn back to your stomach with the joystick, while letting your foot off the pedal, will stop your whirlybug and put it in reverse. One more full circle turn back to your stomach will put your whirlybug back forward again.
Each shot that is made is worth two points. To score, an individual must hit the electronic screen, located on a raised backboard, with a wiffleball, which sets off a buzzing alarm. If the alarm does not sound, you are not awarded any points.
Upon scoring, the ball is then turned over to the opposing team. Whirlyball strategy is similar to that of basketball and hockey, but a lot more fun to play! Your team’s violations of the rules will result in awarding penalty points to the opposing team.
The penalty points are raised higher per time the same teammate violates a rule. Shooting and passing are fundamentally done the same; by keeping your scoop straight up and down (don’t bring the top of the scoop back) and not taking it to the side of your head. Line it up, follow through, and snap your wrist to almost guarantee a good shot. Remember it’s all about finesse, not power.
LaserWhirld is a 6,000 sq. ft., 2-story laser tag arena where as many as 26 people can play at one time. You can play every person for themselves, or on separate teams. Teams are predetermined as we have 13 red and 13 green vests. You are automatically activated upon entering the arena doorway and will stay activated for 15 minutes.
General play consists only of players, losing and gaining points off tags. The vests have two types of ‘zones’, stun and deactivate, which will award players with different point values, as well as determine how long the tagged player’s vest shuts off. There are 5 actual tag zones on each player’s vest, clearly marked by their team’s color.
At the game’s end, your vest will instruct you to return to the vesting room. Your stats will be downloaded and a scorecard will be printed and given to you in the main lobby.
Besides LaserWhirld, our facility also includes WhirlyBall, as well as a large arcade in the main lobby.
