How the idea was established:
Lindsay and Darren who originate from Northern Ireland, live locally in Brisbane with their 2 beautiful children, Eva age 8 and Dylan age 5. They have always been adventure and thrill seekers, fitness enthusiasts and keen snowboarders. After immigrating to Brisbane 9 years ago to start a family they realised there was a serious gap in the market for adventure sports facilities.
After 15 years of working as a Manager in the Events Industry Lindsay started to work passionately towards their goal to create a business that was meaningful, have a purpose and one that embodies their values and beliefs.
Ben Baker joined the team as co-founder in 2017 bringing with him over a decade of experience in the Family Entertainment Industry and has a passion for Laser Tag Sport. Ben is the Founder of two indoor Family Entertainment Centres (Laserzone Brisbane & Sunshine Coast). Ben has over 15 years’ experience in Family Entertainment Centre operations, management and marketing, as well as 20 years’ experience in Laser Sporting participation. Ben is Australasia’s most decorated player in the 20-year history of the sport. Ben is also a qualified accountant with a Bachelor of Commerce with a first-class honor’s degree in Finance majoring in Accounting and will act as the CFO in the early stages of the business.
