San Diego's Ultrazone Laser Tag Arena Shutters After 25 Year Tenure

September 27, 2020

After 25 years in San Diego and more than 4 million visitors, Ultrazone Laser Tag in Point Loma has announced it is permanently closed.

"ULTRAZONE was forced to close on March 15th, with no indication of when we would be permitted to reopen," read a post on the company's website. "The reality we face is that even at some mythical reopening in 2021 or later, California State guidelines for laser tag due to COVID-19 would make it impossible for us to continue to provide the thrilling ULTRAZONE experience you’ve come to love. Remember: the packed lobby; the Briefing Room shoulder-to-shoulder with eager friends, new and old; the Arena filled with dozens of laughing, screaming players; the Party Area teeming with birthday guests? Rather than dishonor the legacy of The ZONE, it’s time to say farewell."

Over 4.5 million players have experienced Ultrazone since the laser tag facility first opened on Sports Arena Boulevard in 1995. It was the site of the First Zone Worlds Laser Tag Championships in August 2003. Ultrazone had been closed since mid-March due to restrictions surrounding the coronavirus pandemic.
