Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : January 14th 2009
MB INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, January 15, 2009 27 Combat holiday boredom Rohan Hempson, Anthony Evans and Ben Logue battle it out at M9 Laser Skirmish, North Strathfield. Picture: Phil Blatch ~pP232684 WHAT: M9 Laser Skirmish WHERE: 11 George St, Bakehouse Quarter, North Strathfield (next to AMF Bowling) OPEN: Weekdays from 9am to 11pm and weekends from 9am to midnight. Phone 9746 0700 COST: From $14 FIONA BRADY ADRENALINE junkies in the Inner West now have a new thrill to try. An M9 Laser Skirmish Centre has opened at the Bakehouse Quarter complex in North Strathfield. Anyone with a competitive streak will love what's described as ''commando-style combat with advanced laser artillery''. Players wear body gear and laser guns which record ''hits'' throughout the game, and their scores are revealed when they have completed the mission. The centre is fitted out in a medieval theme and includes backdrops like fire-breathing dragons, knights and dungeons. M9 Laser Skirmish is located beside the AMF Bowling Centre and manager Anthony Evans said both activities were perfect ways to keep the kids amused during the school holidays. It's suitable for ages eight and up. ''Now our local residents have a selection of action-packed entertainment all under the one roof,'' Evans said. ''Our visitors can engage in competitive military combat one minute and pop next door for an exciting game of bowling the next. ''These two venues provide a fantastic variety of fun for all ages -- a full day of adventure that is also great value for money.''
