“An Amazing Karting Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2012

Went here last week with the family over xmas. It is one of the best tracks i have been to, and I have been to a few- much to my wife's annoyance! Top karts and a friendly smile, plus the hot chocolate is great!

“Kids had fun but very expensive.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2011

We had our son's birthday party at Virtual Warfare. The set up is very good, with two indoor combat arenas, an armoury etc. I would say that the arenas were perfect for kids but probably a bit small for adults. The young guy who gave the safety briefing and explained the missions etc to the kids was excellent. He was enthusiastic and made it really fun for the boys. The lady on reception however was obviously not a child lover and rather fierce.

The overall cost including a very basic meal of chips and pizza, which was ok but not great. I had told the other parents that there was a bar/cafe here, where they could wait and have drink, but it was unattended, so they left and came back later.

In summary, the kids enjoyed it, which was the objective, but at £240 we would not rush back.
