Laser Tag – Aside from being one of the most popular and fastest growing sports in America, Laser Tag Anywhere is fun, safe, and perfect for every and anyone! Experts set up a Laser Tag field using inflatable barricades and bunkers. Firing the marker activates the infrared signal and the receiver keeps track of all the hits. A hit to the receiver from any angle will record a hit. Each time you score a hit on another player, the system will broadcast the information out to all players within range.
Carnival Games & Rides
Green County Dairy Day can also occur on the same weekend, but be aware that the location varies year to year. During Saturday morning cattle judging may be held at the fairgrounds in Monroe. Always fun to watch when it falls in Monroe on that Saturday!
