Take the spark plug out,squirt some fuel into the cylinder,replace spark plug and try to start engine.If it fires up briefly but then stops you either have a compression related problem (usually valves not seating or a valve clearance issue) or a fueling / carburettor problem.Depending on how mechanically minded you are the fueling issue would be easier to rectify.Laser ride on mowers should have a Japanese engine fitted (a Honda or Kawasaki) so i doubt very much it would be an ignition related problem but they are getting old now so its still worth checking as well !!.If the spark plug is really wet with fuel (flooding) then recheck your carburettor and float.
