the two best ones I''ve been on are at Universal Studios in Orlando, but it has been a few years back. One had a Hulk theme and the other was "Duelling Dragons" or something like that and it had two parallel tracks that split and re-oriented so that the riders came straight for each other, turning up at the last minute, so their feet could almost touch...great stuff

Since Newton sent the latter part of his life pondering light, I think laser tag would be an awesome opportunity for him to not only have fun but come up with more theorems and ideas concerning light.

He'd probably not be able to get passed the fact that he's sitting in front of a computer.  We take the internet for granted.
