KAMLOOPS - If breaking a world record is on your bucket list, you may want to stop by Fun & Games in Sahali this weekend.

The activity centre is hoping to break the record for the longest marathon game of laser tag.

The event starts at 10 a.m. on Saturday, May 21, but the party doesn’t start until midnight, when hundreds of people are expected to partake in an overnight game of laser tag.

Up to 1,500 people are expected to participate, and if you want to be a part of it you should get your tickets soon.

Dave Corbett, co-owner of Fun & Games, says there are only about 50 tickets left for the midnight marathon.

The record currently sits at 24 hours and nine minutes, which means at 10:10 a.m. on Sunday morning, Corbett and his company should have played long enough to see their names in the Guinness Book of World Records.
