“Great Fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

I visited Extreme Combat with 8 of my friends and had a great time. It is far better than Laser Quest and is fun in the dark too. The marshal was a great guy and full of humour. Will defiantly visit again!!

“Great fun family day out - not cheap but will leave you all exhilerated”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

We had a great time here at the weekend. So good in fact I'm already looking at options for my son's forthcoming birthday party. The men in the family had a great time whizzing round the track though there were quite a few women too I was on the sidelines with our 9 year old! It looked such fun I'll be doing it too next time. We'd a quick snack and then it was outside for the laser games. I didn't think the area looked very big when we first went out but I can assure you it's plenty big enough. Great fun for all. Scott our guide was great - clear instruction, not too many rules but enough to keep things under control, breaks for water and to regain our energy and lots of games included for the money!!

“Xtreme Combat = Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

A group of friends and I between the ages of 20 - 25 boys and girls all booked in for the Xtreme Combat at the weekend there and what a laugh we had! The staff at Xtreme are so helpful and couldn't do anything more for us! Getting dressed up in the camouflage gear was hilarious and having the state of the art laser guns added to the thrill! The combat course was great with big army trucks, tyres, barriers etc to hide behind! Perfect size and brilliant layout!

The organised games were so much fun and we all became highly competitive! It is absolutely 100% worth its money and everyone agreed we cannot wait to go back!

Highly recommend for all ages! 10 out of 10!!

Brilliant day out - karting and laser combat - family event with ages 10 to 71.
