5 Reasons to Host Your Child's Birthday Party at

Chicago Battle House Tactical Laser Tag


A birthday is a great time to gather your family and friends which can be celebrated in various ways. Most of the time, people do it by blowing cake candles, giving gifts or having a good time outdoors. Everyone looks forward to this special day in one’s life because it only comes once a year. So, it should be memorable.


Setting up a birthday party can feel overwhelming. That’s why off-site parties are famous and liked better. There are many unique and fun birthday party places in Chicago. Museums to trampolines are the typical options to celebrate birthdays. However, kids & teenagers nowadays are looking for one-of-a-kind celebration.


The 21st century is the time of video games for all age groups. This is becoming a primary challenge for all parents because they have limited choices not only on how they can provide an enjoyable gaming experience to their children but also, look for a place that’s suitable for the entire family.


Doug Huckbody, owner of Battle House Laser Combat, spent a year designing and building a two-story 15,000 square foot facility to present an unparalleled tactical laser tag experience for every age group.


The facility is located in Chicago North West suburbs Lake Barrington. It has become a successful, premier destination for birthday parties, team building, bachelor parties and fundraising events. It’s a perfect venue for fans of first-person shooters to celebrate their special day.


The following are the top 5 reasons which make Battle House an incomparable place to spend a birthday party in Chicago.
