Alexandria is getting its first laser tag arena this winter.
Doyle’s Outpost will be located in the Seminary Plaza Shopping Center in the former AMF Seminary Lanes Bowling Alley at 4620-A Kenmore Ave.
“We’re aiming to open in mid-December,” said owner Kevin Fagan, who formerly owned the Planet Fitness adjacent to the upcoming arena. “But we’ll definitely [be open] before the end of the year.”
Fagan spent $700,000 renovating the space, per construction records filed with the City of Alexandria. In addition to a massive, DC-themed laser tag arena, the 15,400 square-foot space will be home to over 30 arcade games, a Hologate virtual reality center, and a communal space for events and parties.
And for the hungry laser-taggers, Doyle’s Outpost is planning to establish a full-service bar and kitchen with over 25 televisions.
“We’ll have a full kitchen with an elevated menu,” Fagan said. “[And a menu featuring] appetizers, salads, flatbreads, panini sandwiches, craft hot dogs, bowls, and baked pastas.”
According to records with Virginia Alcoholic Beverage Control, Doyle’s Outpost applied for a wine and beer permit last November.
Once open, a round of laser tag will cost around $8, Fagan said, with plans to incorporate bundled arcade games-virtual reality-laser offers along with weekday specials.
The nearest laser tag arena to Alexandria is ShadowLand on Franconia Road, south of Four Mile Run in Fairfax County. (Despite its Alexandria mailing address, it is, in fact, in Fairfax). There’s also an UltraZone laser arena in Baileys Crossroads in Arlington.
