iCombat in Chicago Invites Thrill-Seekers to Join in Their Mass Purge-Themed Laser Tag Game This Halloween

Participants are needed now at iCombat Chicago

Prison Purge

​iCOMBAT Chicago’s Halloween sessions are back and they are recruiting citizen-soldier sweep teams to prowl through the cells and passageways of the darkened two-story prison to defeat the actors posing as prisoners who have taken over the facility.

“We need your help now to defeat the prisoners and retake the secret government prison that held them in Schiller Park,” said Rick Jensen, President of iCOMBAT. “Take back the prison from the prisoners disrupting the intense laser tag action in our two-story prison facility, we can guarantee this Halloween experience will be somewhere between heart-pounding scary and laugh out loud fun.”

The technology wizards at iCOMBAT have invented a new system that allows real-life actors in prisoner costumes will  “attack” in two sweep teams of tactical laser tag players. If a prisoner emerges from the abandoned cells and passageways in the darkened prison and can get within five feet of a player, the player will be dead.  The players can only stop the prisoner's advances temporarily by shooting them – but a few seconds later the prisoners will begin their attacks again. All of this action occurs during the usual tactical laser tag battles between two teams of players on a Hollywood style movie set of a secret government prison facility. 

“Last year, hundreds of citizen-soldiers joined the fight to end the prisoner outbreak at iCOMBAT Chicago,” said Jensen.  “Demand is always high but these special Halloween sessions are limited so I suggest you grab your spot now as reservations are open.”

The special Prison Purge sessions at iCOMBAT Chicago will be featured on Friday and Saturday evenings from October 18th to October 26th, beginning after 5pm on Fridays and 3pm on Saturdays.  The sessions will be 60 minutes long and cost $38. Reservations are encouraged and can be made at barracks.icombat.com, or by calling 855-454-4426. Due to the intense action, players must be 13 years or older.

iCOMBAT’s patented technology is so realistic that it is used for training by SWAT teams and Special Forces units around the world.  The 16,000 square foot iCOMBAT Chicago facility contains a playing field modeled after an abandoned prison. It features guard towers, prison cells, and a broken down prison bus in a two story facility with a 27,000 watt sound system.  Participants will hear helicopters hovering overhead during an action-packed session with multiple missions. Scores and live footage of the missions will also be shown in the lobby on large television screens.

iCOMBAT Chicago is located at 5050 N. River Road, Schiller Park, IL 60176 near the Rosemont Convention Center. More information about iCOMBAT can be found on their Facebook page at facebook.com/icombat or on their website icombat.com/chicago.

Last year, more than 250,000 people defended against the prison purge during iCOMBAT’s Prison Purge technology at dozens of facilities around the world. “
