Urban Jungle offers laser tag, indoor rock climbing and more

Todd Hannon, owner of Urban Jungle in Peachtree City, loved playing laser tag with his sons as they were growing up. First there was the play at home option and later playing in Dixieland in Fayetteville’s arena. When Dixieland remodeled, the laser tag arena left but Hannon has brought the concept back with Urban Jungle, a modern looking building that contains top of the line arcade games, a 24’ rock wall with four climbing lanes of varying difficulty, a two story professionally created laser tag arena and Laser Frenzy, a game that puts the player inside a scene straight out of the movies.
