Frequently Asked Questions
- What are the age-ranges for your school shows?
What are the age-ranges for your school shows?
We tailor every program to the age of the audience. In this way, most school programs can be adapted to serve any group from PK – 8th grade (except Laser Reader, which serves PK – 5th grade)
- What show do you recommend for a first-time school?
What show do you recommend for a first-time school?
Every program is guaranteed to be a home run. But if it helps, most first time schools tend to choose American Pride, the Laser Team Anti-bullying Program, or the Science Spectacular I. And since the majority of schools that have us once have us back year after year once they see what this is all about, schools tend to work through the rest of the programs in due time.
- What’s the deposit?
What’s the deposit?
No deposit is required for school programs. Private and corporate shows require a $250 deposit because these programs require significant up-front custom work.

- How far in advance should I book a show?
How far in advance should I book a show?
As soon as you’re ready. We pretty much sell-out every year, so the earlier you contact us, the better the selection of available dates that you’ll have. However we can try to accommodate you with as little as two weeks notice.
- When/where are you available?
When/where are you available?
We are available seven days a week, day and night, year round. We perform laser programs throughout all lower 48 states from eight bases of operation: Baltimore, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, New York City, Philadelphia, and Wayne, NJ.
- Is there a fire hazard?
Is there a fire hazard?
No. There is no flame used during our programs, nor are the lasers used in any way that could result in an open flame.
- Does your show have a high risk of causing seizures?
Does your show have a high risk of causing seizures?
No. Over the last decade, over five million people have experienced one of our laser programs, and to our knowledge, not one seizure has occurred during a program. This includes several thousand autistic and epileptic children that we visit each year. We’re not surprised because our laser programs do NOT involve known high-risk stimuli, such as rapidly-flashing strobe effects.
- When do I pay?

Payment is due in full at the show unless other arrangements (such as a PO or BOCES) have been made in advance.

Not usually. The only exception is if we’re making a special, long distance trip just for your event.

- Can you do the show outdoors?
Can you do the show outdoors?
Yes. However, an outdoor show is considered a custom show. Therefore it almost always has a higher fee than if it were held indoors.
- What is the maximum size of the audience?
What is the maximum size of the audience?
There is no maximum size, as long as the safe occupancy limit of the room is not exceeded. That said, all things being equal, 200 – 250 tends to be an ideal audience size.
- How long do you need between shows?
How long do you need between shows?
It takes us about five minutes in between shows. So plan your schedule as needed, and don’t worry about us.
- How long does it take to set-up / breakdown?
How long does it take to set-up / breakdown?
We like to have at least an hour to set up and forty-five minutes to break-down.
- What do we need to provide the day of the show?
What do we need to provide the day of the show?
We only require two things: electricity and darkness. As long as it's not complete daylight, our lasers can outshine the ambient light. However, the darker the better, so anything that can be done to cover windows is well worth it.
