Meet Jermaine Young and his son, Terriquee, the founders of MKETag, the first Black-owned renowned portable laser tag event production company based in Chicago, IL. The company has been approved by The Chicago Park District to launch the LaserTag in the Park AfterDark series across local community parks in June 2022.

MKETag is thrilled to announce the company’s expansion into Chicago this summer with the launch of the LaserTag in the Park AfterDark series coming this June. The series’ first pop-up event will be held at Humboldt Park and will continue into Millennium Park, Grant (Ulysses) Park, Lincoln Park, and Garfield Park throughout the summer. These public events are approved by The Chicago Park District and will include our 1,500 square-foot enclosed laser tag arena equipped with LED lights, neon fog, air-conditioning, a vortex of wind tunnels, and a 360-degree sound system that the community is sure to enjoy all summer long.
