A laser tag battle maze could be opened on the site of a former west Suffolk gym, according to new documents.
Leisure-Tek East Anglia Ltd has submitted an application to planning chiefs at St Edmundsbury Borough Council to build a laser arena at Lilac Works in Western Way, Bury St Edmunds.
The large unit previously housed the Bury Spectrum Gymnastics before they relocated to Northern Way last year.
Plans reveal that the attraction, believed to be called PlanetLaser, will feature a laser arena, laser maze and a briefing and vesting area.
Part of the building will be transformed into a cafe with seating, kitchen facilities and dedicated party rooms to host private events. Leisure-Tek, who are based in Diss and specialise in supplying coin-operated amusement and vending equipment, have also planned a gaming area and karaoke area to “back up the laser activities”.

The proposal, which is under public consultation until August 14, states that existing car parking facilities are sufficient.
A Leisure-Tek spokesman said: “The proposed use will maintain the character and the benefit of leisure activities in the area and bring a redundant building back into use.”
