"Cancelled birthday party"
TripAdvisor user rating 1 out of 5
Reviewed December 16, 2018 NEW
We were supposed to have my son's birthday party there. We booked it a few months in advance and then a week before the party I get an email saying "due to unforeseen circumstances we are no longer able to host your event". This left me franticly looking for another venue last minute. I felt like it was extremely unprofessional and I will never be returning.

0 stars if i could. We came here on a last minute bachelor party for my brother who was being deployed and married all in the same week. The staff was cold and unaccommodating ! We paid $250 total for 7 people which included $35 for the 8th person we did not have but still had to cover??!!!! Never in my life have i felt so ripped off. There wasn't a single person in the place when we walked in and that should of been the hint to leave immediately. They claimed that with the bachelor package we'd get a vip room+ photos which ended up being the main lobby with a snack bar lol! The pictures i received had to be purchased, and were the quality of a flip phone from 2001!!!!! What a tourist crap trap!!!!!!! I will never come back and i will tell as many people as i can to avoid you at all cost!!!! Your staff was so ridiculously unenthusiastic! There faces screamed " i hate my life and my job" way to go hard knocks you picked some real winners!!!! Btw most of the equipment didn't work right and felt pointless, no vibrations, no gun recoil, nothing. A $30 walmart lazer tag set and your front yard would of been a better time and money spent !!!! We left and went to top-golf across the street and thank god for them because they saved our night !! Save your money and do anything else but hard knocks Orlando!!!!

"A TOTAL waste of time"
TripAdvisor user rating 1 out of 5
Reviewed August 14, 2017
They only get one star because there's no option for a zero. Their staff COULD NOT care less. Way more interested in showing you their cleavage than in actually explaining the game. Seriously, this place is an insult to your intelligence. Don't they ever read the reviews on here? If they did, maybe the facility would not have been 100% empty at a peak time slot in the summer. Save your money. Go to the dentist. Have a toe nail removed. Do ANYTHING but go here.

"Great potential but totally fails "
TripAdvisor user rating 1 out of 5

I gave this one star because it has the total potential to be a wonderful establishment however they fail on almost every level. I want to preface the review by stating that I've been to the establishment twice. After the first visit I wrote to them about the experience via their website and never even received a response. None-the-less I returned with friends for a second visit about three weeks later and nothing had changed. Below is just a list of the issues my friends and I had while there. 1. They have like 30 TVs two of which supposedly display the next games however they don't follow them at all so you've never know which game is coming up next. 2. If you ask them what the next game is they refuse to tell you until after you swipe your card (PAY). So you have no idea of what you're getting into until after you've already spent your money. This really sucks as one of the game was a free-for-all with about 30 people in it and lasted less than a minute or two. Had I known the game we certainly would have sat that one out and waited for the next one. 3. Despite the technology clearly being there they have no follow-up after the game that shows you how many people you kill who you shot what your stats were or any information along these lines so you really have no idea how you did other than you were killed or not killed. 4. The quote regulators of the game barely pay attention and on two occasions had no idea of the game had already completed until we walked up to him about 2 or 3 minutes later and told them what we had won the game. Which actually was beneficial to us since we got to play the game a little bit longer. Again this place has all the potential in the world but the employees and the way they run it is disappointing. It is definitely out of fortunate as I am local and would go back on multiple occasions if they had their stuff together.

Frequently Asked Questions about Hard Knocks Orlando

What is combat?
Combat is our sophisticated version of laser tag. Hard Knocks has more than 85 different real-world missions aimed at accomplishing team objectives. Traditional laser tag games outfit all players with identical looking gun models. At Hard Knocks, the weapons used are realistic, military-grade replicas, each with their own advantages. Players are able to visually identify what weapon their opponent has and what type of threat is represented.

What are the age requirements for combat?
In order to play open combat, guests must be at least 8 years old, or 50 inches tall.

Is it safe?
Yes. Hard Knocks is committed to providing a safe environment for its combatants. All weapons are eye-safe. The core technology used by Hard Knocks is infrared light. Infrared is on the safe side of the visible spectrum, using an infrared beam no stronger than a television remote. Regulators, our female combat referees, monitor each mission to ensure all Rules of Engagement are being followed and reinforce the proper operation of the weapons.

Is special training required to participate?
The only training that Hard Knocks requires is that each of its combatants is briefed on our Rules of Engagement and Way of the Gun.

What should I wear?
Guests must wear comfortable clothes and a pair of closed-toe shoes.
