At the end of July, the Jellystone Park at Whispering Pines in East Tyler, Texas, opened its long-anticipated laser tag game.
The laser tag is just under an acre in size and can accommodate up to 20 guests.
“We’ve had a lot of interest in this, so we’re eager to have the game up and running for our guests to enjoy,” says Don Tardy, the park’s co-owner who bought the campground four years ago with his wife, Jan, and her two adult children, Colt and Bree Perrin.
Tardy also noted that this has been the busiest summer yet, mostly because they invested more than $1 million in new games and other improvements around the campground over the past three years, including an 18-hole miniature golf course.
The Tyler campground is one of the first Jellystone Parks in the U.S. to offer a free texting service to its guests, enabling them to be notified of Yogi Bear sightings, special events and news during their stay at the campground.
