MEET THE TEAM
After selling his previous business, owner Thomas Maione was searching for a new project to take on. He wanted to create a place in Austin for high-tech fun and adventure where families could play together - and where kids would have an equal chance against their parents! Since Thomas was already a fan of laser tag, opening a laser tag facility seemed to be the perfect choice!
He and his wife Diana opened Blazer Tag Adventure Center in February 1999 in the former Southwood Theatre. Since then, Thomas has continued improving the facility with additions like a redemption prize counter, new video games, new bridges in the arena, - all to keep the experience fresh and exciting. He's also hired and trained an outstanding staff to be knowledgeable and courteous and do whatever it takes to make each visit to Blazer Tag a memorable one! His and the staff's goal is to continue to improve the facility and the quality of service for our guests!
