One of the most recognized childhood staples is no more.

Laser Quest announced it is permanently ceasing its operations across North America, breaking the news Tuesday on its social media platforms.

“As much as we wanted to re-open, the COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting uncertain economic climate have made the continued operation of Laser Quest North America next to impossible,” the statement read.

“Over the past 27 years Laser Quest has brought fun to life with countless birthday parties, day camp and youth group events, plus numerous corporate and educational outings.”

The company’s website says that some locations could potentially re-open under new ownership.

The first North American Laser Quest entertainment centre opened back in 1993.

“As we bid farewell, we at Laser Quest want to thank each and everyone of you for your support throughout the years.”
