Sector 7 Laser
Thanks to a rather unhelpful asteroid your ship full of Red Troop crew mates have been sent hurtling into an unknown planet, and the natives are even unfriendlier than the asteroid! Pack up your laser phasors and deal with the Green Aliens, zapping them and their base until the Red Troops are safe to repair their ship.
Everything depends on you!
At it's most basic, combat gaming is like a game of 'it' only played with infra red weaponry, where one simply has to zap one's opponents and be zapped as little as possible in return! However once you add in all the 4D special effects like fog, UV lights, strobing and background sounds, as well as all those pesky aliens shooting at you, it seems a lot more complicated!
The minimum participation restriction is actually height based rather than age, so as long as they're over 4ft tall they can play. However younger kids may find the immersive and pyrotechnic nature of the attraction intimidating, so it's worth wearing sensible clothes yourself and going in on their team alongside them for support. A mission is 20 minutes long (after the 10 minute briefing) so on the one hand it's enough for them to see if they like it, and on the other it's short enough that most parents can cope too!
Then calm them down after the battle with a nice game of bowling: it's much easier to shoehorn them into the car when they've stopped screaming "zapzapzapzap!"
