As RTX grows closer and closer, we’re filling out the rest of our schedule with awesome things for you to do when the convention isn’t open. As you know, we’re working with several RT community groups to help them host their own events, as part of RTSQ Presents.
Today we’re announcing the second of our RTSQ Presents lineup… the fine folks over at RvB:TX will be hosting a SideQuest classic: Blazer Tag!
SideQuest Blazer Tag started at the first RTX with a handful of SideQuesters heading down to play a few games after playing capture the flag on the lawn of the Texas capitol building. Sound familiar? (Hint: Capture the Capitol is BACK!). During year two, we turned Blazer Tag into a ticketed event with an enormous turnout. We rented out the entire complex for several hours and had TONS of fun! We even had a truck from Chi’Lantro come out to serve food!
Now, through RTSQ Presents, RvB:TX is bringing you another year of Blazer Tag at RTX!
On Sunday, July 7th, just after the doors of RTX close, you’ll be able to head down to Blazer Tag in South Austin for a couple hours of fun in the state’s largest laser tag arena. What better way to vent your frustration at the fact that you are an ENTIRE YEAR away from the next RTX? I mean, just look at the fun everyone had last year!
For at least two action packed hours there will be battles, arcade games, and fun times for everyone! Blazer Tag usually charges over $8 per person per game, but with such a large group we’ll be able to get the group rate of $7.25 per game! Of course, you’ll want to bring cash so you can pay as one group to get the special rate. Oh, and of course food, drinks, and arcade games will be your own responsibility.
Since this is one of the more logistically complex events, we need your input! First, we’d like to have a rough idea of how many people will show up. This will help us plan accordingly. The more people, the more stuff might be included!
Second, last year we (SideQuest) had a shuttle going from the convention center to Blazer Tag. RvB:TX would like to have one again this year, but they need to know how many people will actually need and use it. Since they won’t have money from ticket sales to use for the shuttle, if there’s enough interest they’ll set up a donation system. And if they get enough donations, they might even be able to include some extra stuff like free food, game tokens, or free games of Blazer Tag!
The crew at RvB:TX have set up the survey below:
That’s all for today! A big thanks to RvB:TX for offering to host Blazer Tag this year! We hope to see everyone there!
