Great kids laser tag party. Kids loved running about the woods in camouflage overalls playing soldiers. Very patient staff, signage to get there well hidden! Limited facilities (as it is in the middle of nowhere) - don't expect anything more than the bear minimum of huts and portaloos.

Went to battle grounds with 14 family members and was thrown in with another group. The place was well organised and run by John and Martin who did an awesome job. Two things you need is lots of balls and some big balls..... You do go through a lot of paint balls so don't be too trigger happy. For all... More

Went to a airsoft game and had a great day out, lots of fun and lots of people there, lots of different areas to play in, the trenches were very good. The down side was that this is a paintball site and I don't think a couple of the staff were happy that airsofters were there, I heard one use... More

The site itself is large and open with a few seperate playing areas wich all cater to a different play style and feel. These include the trenchs, the village, the chinook, the barrel field and...

Went here for my stag do and would say great value for money. Staff were friendly and energetic. Area of woodland is great for the games. Yes you go through paintballs but it's worth it. Not much options for hot food only hot dogs but taste good and your going for activities not your lunch. Good long day and plenty... More

I organised a party of 8 adults for lasertag on the 6th of December. The staff were very friendly, and the games itself were really great. I would have given the experience 4 stars... unfortunately, however, the day was spolied for me and other member of the group. The sights on our lasertag guns were completely out of alignment, which... More

Hi Nik, Many thanks for getting in touch; great to know you did have a good time once your scope was switched on. Our staff do check all of the equipment at the start of every session and on this occasion, as you correctly mentioned above, you didn't bring any issue with regards to questioning accuracy to the attention of...

We had a birthday party for a group of 11 year old girls. They did archery - had a lesson on how to shoot a bow followed by a couple of group competitions. There is a covered area with tables around the reception, I took sausage rolls and sandwiches and we had an afternoon picnic followed by cake. They all... More
